“Why do they bury lawyers under 20 feet of dirt? Because deep down, they’re really good people.”
“What’s the difference between a mosquito and a lawyer? One is a blood-sucking parasite, the other is an insect.”
The evidence suggests that the legal profession has a bit of an image problem, that there might be a few unhappy customers out there, and that humour, just might be, their only form of redress. As a lawyer myself, I don’t consider myself one of these terrible examples of the profession. In fact, I would go so far as to say that I am a good person, representing my clients to the best of my ability. Now, maybe I am just kidding myself on this score and there are a few unhappy campers on my patch as well, but I haven’t come across them yet. I make sure that my chambers are a friendly looking place because first impressions do matter. Fitting out a legal office is an important component of doing business in a modern Australia.
Hard Surfaces & Lawyers Are Not a Good Match
I have chosen light coloured wood to be the uniform structural feature inherent within my work space. Timber is a natural material and I sense that people are more at home around it than shiny metal. Hard surfaces and lawyers are not a good match, and, perhaps, all that metal reminds folks of prison bars? I want to suggest an airy, spacious ambience in which my clients feel free to express themselves.

Quality Timber Furniture
When fitting out a legal office I recommend that you consult a professional interior designer. It pays to get the right kind of experts on board. Check out these fine examples online of the kind of quality timber furniture I am suggesting. Australian made top notch desks, tables, entertainment units and chairs in a variety of tasteful styles. You will feel the difference when you touch these furniture pieces from one of Sydney’s premier retail outlets. It is important that the quality of everything inside your legal office is unquestionable. You do not want your potential clients thinking that you skimp on things. Solid and well-made stuff sends the right kind of message to your clients.
