Experience is everything.

Educated at Melbourne University and awarded the higher degree of Master of Law, Neal established the business in 1966. After initially setting up practice in Collins Street, Melbourne, Neal relocated the business in the 1970s to service the legal needs of residents in Melbourne’s growing south east region.

Neal has successfully handled hundreds of family law and criminal law cases, and thousands of wills, estates, and powers of attorney matters. While every case is unique and the legal needs of individuals vary, what remains consistent is the calm, caring, confident approach Neal brings to each of his clients.

Thanks to his extensive experience, Neal is able to quickly and accurately advise on the different legal options available, assess the merit of a case and the likelihood of success.

These qualities have built Neal’s reputation as a lawyer of high standing, respect, and authority within the Australian legal profession.

In 2017 Neal was honoured by the Law Institute of Victoria with an award for 50 years’ service to the legal profession.
