About Us


“Discourage litigation. Persuade your neighbors to compromise whenever you can. As a peacemaker the lawyer has superior opportunity of being a good man. There will still be business enough.”


Abraham Lincoln

Philip Simmonite established P.S. Legal in 2009. His service goals were to:

  • Make all clients feel comfortable meeting their lawyer.
  • Provide certainty for clients regarding their fees
  • Ensure that each client’s experience with P.S. Legal was a positive one


Dealing with sensitive issues such as death and disability requires trust, patience and compassion. Philip and his staff have worked hard to avoid the stereotypes associated with the legal profession and to create a culture quite different from any other legal practice.


We believe we are different to most other law firms because we:

  1. Provide fixed-fee billing in most cases
  2. Provide direct contact with your lawyer at all times
  3. Do not charge a fee for the initial appointment if you are referred by your advisor, accountant or another lawyer
  4. Provide an integrated service where we inform and advise your financial consultant, accountant or other relevant parties
  5. Do not charge for minor disbursements (photocopying, etc) wherever possible

We are confident that your experience with P.S. Legal will be a positive one.
