About SJP Law
SJP Law has been an active member of the Sunshine Coast legal community since 1981. We provide a quality service, with expert advice and local knowledge. At SJP Law, we consist of two professional staff-solicitors Mark Shera and Christine Jones. Mark and Christine both live locally and combined have spent 35 years with SJP Law. Our Sunshine Coast solicitors are supported by experienced and dedicated paralegals, and a number of administrative staff, who work to ensure that every client receives personalised and prompt service. We are practiced in a number of legal areas and our professionals have their own area of expertise. Each professional is supported by at least one dedicated paralegal who is experienced in their area of support. If you have ever needed legal services before, you'll know that legal terms can be complex and often confusing. Our solicitors at SJP Law will cut through the legal jargon and provide you with legal advice in real terms. If you want to speak to a solicitor before making an appointment, just call us. We can't give you legal advice over the phone, but we can certainly introduce ourselves to you before you book your appointment.

The entire team at SJP were across my separation of assets and divorce matter. I felt supported with each interaction and more importantly, secure in their personalised and professional guidance offered to ensure that I could take the opportunity to focus on my personal needs in this time. I will be forever grateful for their dedication and to their attention to detail that educated me to advocate for myself and build the confidence to take back control of my life.

SJP provided me with great service and support in my recent role as executor of my mother's estate and again as administrator of my step father's estate. As a lawyer myself, I understand the need for a lawyer's attention to detail and accuracy and I found SJP to be well skilled in all areas of estate law. Mark, Stacey and Nikki are professional, friendly and informative and kept me updated - a joy to work with.

Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need conveyancing?
Buying a property is an expensive undertaking and you may well be tempted to save money by opting to do the conveyancing yourself. Whilst this could save you money in the short term, any misunderstanding of the contracts or misinterpretation of search results could lead to litigation and cost much more than you save. The team at SJP Law are experts in this field and take great care to stay up to date with all changes to legislation and laws. Choosing an experienced team means you can be confident that all the necessary legal aspects of buying or selling residential or investment property are taken care of.
