About Us

I don’t know about you, but whenever I’m seriously researching a topic on the web and come across a website that’s useful, I always want to know more about them.  Who are they?  What’s their background?  Should I trust what they’re telling me?

To help you make that decision, here’s a little bit of background information about us.

This website is run by RP Emery & Associates, an internet based legal publishing service established in 1990. We provide professionally drafted contract templates and kits to the general public

We consider it our job to demystify the law and legal contracts.

We firmly believe that there are many times in life where you can enjoy the protection of a well written legal contract without spending a fortune in legal fees. Because of this, our aim is to make it easy for you to solve common legal issues that crop up in life.

We provide Legal Contract Kits for business issues such as leasing and employment as well as specialising in financial agreements.

We have been at the forefront of a movement to make legal services more affordable for average Australians by providing tools and back up support that empowers people to take control of their own legal matters. Knowledge is power and even more so when it comes to legal matters.

Feel free to call us on 0266725904 if you have questions.  

Meet the Directors
