Joondalup's Premier Legal Team

Carter Dickens Lawyers is locally owned and managed. Since 2013, we have served the northern suburbs of Perth. Unlike larger firms, we answer to our clients and not shareholders. Our offices are located opposite the Joondalup Court House and we provide a full suite of legal services.


We understand that many people are concerned about runaway legal fees. We focus on providing value for money by making sure that our clients understand the cost and importance of what we do every step of the way. 


We identify the options available to our clients. We provide an accurate estimate of costs for the next step. We take instructions to proceed only if our client agrees that the costs are justified by the goal. We strive to provide competence, efficiency and compassion.


We believe that your legal fees must always feel like an investment in your future. 



“I wish to extend my gratitude to the team at Carter Dickens Lawyers for their ongoing support and professionalism throughout recent family court and VRO proceedings over the last year and a half. The entire team were incredibly efficient, the right mix of friendly but professional and dedicated to achieving appropriate final orders in the best interest of myself and my children.

The lawyers took the time to listen and understand the situation fully and I was kept informed at each stage of the process.

The team provided sound advice while continuing to follow my direction. Ben represented me throughout most of the court proceedings and demonstrated his expertise by providing me with all the likely outcomes with regards to the other parties involved. These court proceedings were extremely long and stressful, I cannot thank Carter Dickens Lawyers enough for the time and effort spent researching, preparing documents, answering my questions, reassuring me and representing me in court!”
