We are OPEN & propose to remain open & available as much as possible

Some of the legal services we provide are essential. For instance, sales and purchases still need to go ahead.

We follow recommended health protocols. Please telephone or email us first if you have any concerns.

We need to behave and think differently in these extraordinary times. While maintaining social distance and good hygiene we try to stay connected, reach out to those isolated and work together as a community.

Tomorrow is Australia Day and the theme for 2021 is 'Reflect. Respect. Celebrate.'

YouTube clip"Australia has a wonderfully rich and diverse population and heritage. Our country is home to the oldest continuous culture on earth with a history reaching back beyond 60,000 years. I think that is something about which all Australians can and should be immensely proud. So too I think we should all be proud of our rich migrant heritage and our cohesive society. These are things to honour, respect and celebrate."
