Colquhoun & Colquhoun

Attorneys at Law. Established in 1969

About Us

Colquhoun & Colquhoun Solicitors is home to four skilled lawyers, who are supported by a team of competent and dedicated staff. We offer more than forty years of experience in the areas of business law, wills and estates, family law, conveyancing and litigation.

We respect our clients and everyone involved in our work –you will usually speak to the person responsible for your matter when you call, and we will explain things to you in plain English. Above all, we pride ourselves on being approachable and willing to listen.

We know that seeking legal advice can be a confusing and even worrisome prospect for many people. At Colquhoun & Colquhoun, we will guide you through the process and make sure it goes as smoothly as possible. This means exploring mediation and alternative dispute resolution methods before litigation, to avoid you the stress and expense of going to court.

At Colquhoun & Colquhoun we attempt to consider the “big picture” when we are working with a client’s matter. In doing so, we provide our clients with advice on how a legal matter may impact other parts of their life.

We are conveniently located fifteen minutes away from the heart of the Sydney CBD, in the inner western suburb of Rozelle. Since opening our doors in 1969, we have become a well respected organisation within the community and our staff are regular contributors to a variety of community activities.
