About Us

LOCAL LAWYERS is the amalgamation of six prominent suburban law firms:

CLEMENTS HUTCHINS & CO has been in Altona for over 35 years and has been one of the most successful and well respected suburban law firms in that time.  While Peter Hutchins is now retired he continues to be an invaluable source of advice for everyone at Local Lawyers.

PETER BOYLE & ASSOCIATES operated in Williamstown from the 1980s and merged with Local Lawyers in 2008.  The firm developed a trusted name in Williamstown and surrounding suburbs and provided quality legal services for many years.

PERILLO ADAMI & FRANK was located in the Footscray and Hoppers Crossing areas from the 1950s.  The firm was founded by Joseph Perillo in Footscray and operated in Hoppers Crossing from the early 2000s under Valentino Adami and Chris Frank.  Perillo Adami & Frank merged with Local Lawyers at the beginning of 2011. Chris Frank is fondly remembered by the Local Lawyers family.

VICTOR BORG & CO had offices in the Melbourne CBD and in Sunshine. Victor was in practice for over 30 years and was a highly respected member of the community. Victor enjoyed particularly high regard within the Maltese community and held numerous honorary positions over the course of his career.  Victor Borg & Co experienced a successful integration into Local Lawyers in April 2013. Victor is fondly remembered by the Local Lawyers family. 

SIEVERS LEE was itself a merger of Sievers & Sievers and Telfer & Graham, and became a pillar of the Sunshine legal community. Richard Lee was with the firm for 40 years and continues to provide high quality legal advice with Local Lawyers.

GRAHAM LEGAL operated from Mount Alexander Road in Essendon North for approximately 30 years. We are pleased to integrate Graham Legal into Local Lawyers and will continue to provide high quality legal services from the Essendon North offices. 

LOCAL LAWYERS has combined experience of more than 100 years in providing legal services to the community.
