Who we are

Cavalier Legal was founded in 2016 by Principal Solicitor, Carmine Alvaro. The idea behind Cavalier Legal was to create a modern, client-focused boutique law firm which combines high-quality legal experience with innovative practices and matter management processes. Based in a newly fit-out, loft-style office space on Pulteney Street in Adelaide, Cavalier Legal specialises in a range of civil and commercial practice areas to assist clients on a local and national scale. Our approach and values are based on bridging the gap between a conservative and often intimidating idea of obtaining high quality legal services from experienced lawyers, with a progressive, technologically advanced and client-focused modern day approach. Whether a corporation or individual, dealing with a contentious dispute or non-contentious transaction, we are focused on providing professional, friendly and fully realised legal services in the most cost-efficient way to all of our clients.
