Your community lawyer, our city support

In a regional community, it’s important to have access to high-quality professional services without travelling to the city. It’s also important that your service providers understand the issues and challenges which are unique to your part of the world.

That’s why our Mornington office is staffed by local lawyers and is a full-time local operation.

Our Mornington office services the wider Mornington Peninsula with specialised legal services in;

  • Family law
  • Wills and Estates
  • Conveyancing

Our Mornington lawyers work, live and volunteer in the local community. We’re committed to supporting grassroots organisations, including the Mornington Yacht Club and the Mornington Bowling Club.

Through our Melbourne office, our Mornington team can access significant knowledge and resources. The result? Local expertise with big firm support. It’s the best of both worlds. It also means that whatever your legal issue, whether personal or business, we can help.

Community knowledge and expert advice. All in the one place, ready to help you.


Family Law

Your family law issue is perhaps one of the greatest challenges you’ve ever faced, but we can help you work it out.

Our family law services include;

  • Parenting disputes
  • Property settlement
  • De facto and same-sex relationships
  • Pre-nuptial and financial agreements
  • Spousal maintenance and child support
  • Injunctions and restraining orders

Wills + Estates

A will is a crucial tool to help you ensure your loved ones are looked after in the future. Estate planning is an essential part of the will-making process, especially when working out how to deal with family assets such as farms.

If your loved one has passed away, you may need legal advice about their deceased estate and how it impacts you.

We’ll help you find your way.

Our wills and deceased estates services include;

  • Drafting and advising on wills
  • Estate planning
  • Deceased estate administration
  • Applications for probate or letters of administration
  • Drafting powers of attorney
  • Drafting advance care directives (for medical decisions)

Conveyancing – Buying and selling residential property

Buying or selling a house is a significant transaction. You’re busy organising your big move and perhaps planning some renovations. You don’t need the added burden of managing the technicalities.

That’s where we can help.

Our registered conveyancers from Melbourne can assist you. We’re known for our technical efficiency and our attention to detail. If your transaction is complex, if it involves many properties, or if it concerns commercial property, it’s no problem for us. We’re supported by our team of Melbourne property lawyers who understand the intricacies of property transactions.
