We are a specialist

human rights law firm.

"Our mission is to defend and advocate for Truth no matter what. Are you with us?."

Why 'Maat's Method'?

‘Maat’ is the Ancient Egyptian representative of Truth and Justice. Today, individually and collectively, we are being forced to reckon with a society that has strayed far away from what is true and just.

Thankfully, while Truth can be distorted, it can never be defeated. The Truth is the Truth. It is a constant in all things. It is the fibre that runs through the fabric of our very existence here. Sometimes, corporations and Government departments need some reminding of what that Truth is.

We can help you to do that.

Specialist Human Rights Lawyer In Australia

Human rights aren’t something which exist outside of us. They cannot legitimately be taken away from us. They are fundamental human dignities that exist by virtue of our humanity.

Most human societies before ours recognised that there were non-derogable principles that could not be diluted, distorted or damaged under any circumstances. From the Lore of the original tribal nations of the Australian continent to the 42 Laws of Ma’at of the Ancient Egyptians to the Natural Law that Greeks and Romans built their system of ethics and philosophy on top of; there are principles that underpin our existence here that human beings have held as sacred for thousands of years.

In modern society, the international human rights treaties and covenants, such as the United Nations Declaration of Human Rights and the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, enshrine those ancient principles, albeit in a diluted manner. Today, defending and advocating for those principles can be difficult because we live in societies that have forgotten how important and sacred they are.

At Maat’s Method, we not only remember and uphold those principles, but we are dedicated to defending them. If you believe that your human rights have been breached, we can help.

Our Values

The truth is the truth. In the fullness of time, it cannot be suppressed or denied. We do our best to speak it, live it and embody it, every day.

Integrity is everything. If you have it and hold it, thank you. This is the best time in history, right now, to stand firm in our integrity together.

Honour is underrated. We stick to our word. Our beliefs can change, but our principles don’t.

We still love you if we disagree. Healthy disagreement and discomfort are essential in a healthy society.

We are here to serve; ourselves and others. We are grateful to be in a position to do so. Our mission is to help you by reminding you of who we really are.

We are individualised expressions of a collective universal consciousness. We are powerful beyond measure. We will not bow to those who seek to divide us, to dilute our spirit, or to undermine the collective human good. We love humanity too much for that, and love is the most solid foundation in the universe.


“I could not have been more fortunate or more pleased to have Peter Fam take on my case against an ‘establishment bully’. From the outset, Peter’s meticulous “take one careful step at a time” approach, instilled great confidence in me that we had an excellent chance to bring justice to my situation. Peter displayed an amazing ability to explain the nuances of my situation and to sincerely and effectively involve me in the decision along the way. His dedication to humanity, truth and integrity was clear, and undoubtedly had the ‘bully’ on the back foot. Thus, we had a very good outcome. Maat’s Method: Outstanding excellent service!”

Dr Georgina Hale MBBS FRACP PhD

“My experience with Peter Fam was nothing short of special. His approach was unique because he was able to provide a comprehensive understanding of my situation and recommend an action plan. Any lawyer can quote and reference the law, but Peter stood out to me because of his ability to speak in my language and reference the things that mattered to me. His communication was clear and his advice came with no pressure. He understood the importance of different stakeholders and how even a positive legal outcome could have the potential to impact some parties negatively. He had a truly objective approach to my situation and had the grounded energy i needed to redirect my attention to where it was needed most. More than anything, Peter restored my hope in humanity because at a time when i had lost hope in people, he was there to show me that there are still good, honest truthful people in the world that value doing whats right more than doing whats profitable. Thank you Peter”

“Peter was extremely helpful during a tricky court case and time. He supported me through navigating and settling with an incredible outcome. When dealing with the case, Peter was extremely professional but also sensitive to my emotions and feelings. Peter was very helpful in understanding specific nuances of the law to support my case. Through our interactions and the way he approached the situation, showed his integrity and authentic desire to support people. His work went beyond and above and I highly recommended his services. “


“My experience with Peter at Maat`s Method was a pleasant and positive one. Peter was caring, understanding and of a generous spirit…fulfilling a much needed service…administered with integrity…”

Carolyn Crowe

“Peter at Maat’s Method took on my human rights case against a large government agency and achieved a favorable outcome. Many other lawyers said it couldn’t be done however Peter’s dedication and effort made it happen. Peter is a great listener, honest, responsive and effective. I am exceptionally grateful that he was my lawyer.”

William Cartwright

“Peter helped me in a time of need. He was empathetic, supportive and professional from the first time we connected.

I contacted a number of lawyers who were more worried about payment, didn’t listen to my concerns and were cold and transactional. Peter felt like a friend from the start.

Peter very quickly understood my issue and provided logical advice and direction. He took the weight of the issue off my shoulders and became my voice and advocate – I felt like I could finally breathe in an extremely stressful situation.

Peter helped me achieve justice and I recommend him to everyone who needs legal advice. With Peter you get someone dedicated to your cause, someone who is truly independent and who will fearlessly stand up for justice and truth, no matter how big the opponent may be.

Thank you Peter.”
