8th October 2018 marked three (5) years since we moved our office into the National Centre in Mudgee. This is only the second move I have made as a Solicitor practising in Mudgee for over twenty (20) years.

The success of the move and the success of the Practice is due to your loyal support.

Thank you!

Catherine,Paula, Rebecca,Beth and I feel very privileged to look after your legal requirements.

We have found that you want greater control in achieving a particular outcome and that being kept informed of progress is paramount. To achieve this, we are constantly upgrading our equipment and training our staff in areas such as electronic conveyancing.
