The family firm providing you practical advice with no surprises

Corcoran Lawyers provides a flexible solicitor service based in Hornsby, in the northern suburbs of Sydney and in Gosford on the NSW Central Coast (about an hour north of Sydney). Ours is a small, family-based practice which concentrates our expertise primarily in estate administration, preparation of wills, conveyancing and contract law.

The Corcoran family have been practicing law for over 85 years, offering you friendly expertise in legal services with realistic cost estimates.

The founder, John Corcoran, studied at Sydney University during the Great Depression and in 1933 opened his own practice in York St.  In 1963 he opened his new practice based in Gosford, with his son Peter J. Corcoran joining the practice in 1968. Peter still runs the business today, offering our clients over 50 years of experience in the legal profession.  Peter and his daughter Tara, a 15 year veteran of the IT industry and lawyer, now run Corcoran Lawyers together.

Legal Contracts

Drafting a contract is a great way to formalise an agreement.  People often think they are unnecessary for small agreements, but they offer peace of mind, and a clear view of exactly what is being agreed upon.
