Aaron McDonald

At the commencement of 2014 Aaron McDonald founded Pragma Legal in Subiaco with a view to delivering high quality, client-focused and innovative legal services. After less than three years he now employs 7 staff. Pragma Legal is committed to providing outstanding service for their clients: pragmatic results, not endless legal quibbling.  Their focus on fixed-fees and early mediation, has been game-changing. This offers unprecedented transparency to anyone who needs their services so clients will know exactly how much they will pay. This reduces cost, avoids protracted litigation and ends the emotional and business drain before it begins. Pragma Legal is regarded as an "up and coming" law firm, and was recently recognised as one of the fastest growing in Australia in Australasian Lawyer Magazine (October, 2016), nominated as a finalist in the Australian Law Awards in 2015 and were listed in Australasian Lawyer Innovative Firms for 2016.
