Philip Hardless, Principal of Hardless Legal, is a Barrister and Solicitor. The firm was established in 2016 to bring quality legal advice to people in the suburbs of Perth in an approachable, no-nonsense way. Philip shares his expertise with you to navigate whatever legal issue life has thrown your way. Hardless Legal's location in Piara Waters saves you travelling to the CBD. For those who prefer to meet in town, our St Martin's Tower office is perfect.

Philip has practised in many areas of the law throughout the Peel region, Pinjarra, Mandurah, Perth and Fremantle during his time working with boutique firms such as CLP Legal, Swan River Law (formerly Jullienne Penny & Associates) and Archon Legal. Philip has appeared in nearly every Court and tribunal in WA, and is a formidable Courtroom advocate. In the Courtroom, Philip's understanding of how the Court 'thinks', helps him achieve great results for clients.

Hardless Legal is supported by Barristers with specialised knowledge in discrete areas who are available to engage on your matter on an 'as needs' basis. This means you only pay for a specialist for the part of the matter that requires one. Being qualified as a Barrister as well as a Solicitor enables Philip to appear at Court on your behalf in most matters - saving you money that you can put towards something else.

As a result of his relationships with Barristers, other legal practitioners, the Court and the wider community, Hardless Legal has become a general practice law firm with a breadth and reach of legal expertise that most firms don't have. For you, the client, this translates into better legal advice, and allows you to manage your next steps with confidence.
