What makes us different?

You may be contacting us at the very worst time of your life. Most of our clients have never been in this situation before and trying to find the right lawyer for you can be daunting and highly stressful. We aim to take that stress from you. We are not an individual. We are a team. We are experienced, systematic, passionate and invested in our client’s matters. When you engage our office, you engage our team to advise you, guide you, listen to you and advocate for you. Our firm has a 43 year old legacy but it also has innovation.

We support, develop and invest in our team. We hire the best candidates to become our lawyers, often whilst they are still in law school, so that we can train then to provide the best possible service to you. We service you in an organised, systematic and cost effective manner that is outcome and service focused.

We invest in our team so that they can be their best for you. Our internal policies for ongoing development, work life balance, risk management and professional support are second to none. Calm and happy lawyers make for reassured clients. So when you engage us, you know that our lawyers are not overworked and under-rewarded.

We utilise technology to save time, manage risk, service you quickly and in a way that you can understand. We utilise DocuSign, Text Alerts, Stripe, Bpay, Skype, Video-Conferencing and appropriate emerging technologies to ensure that you have choice and flexibility.

At Galbally Parker, you are our priority.

We invite all prospective clients to contact our office to arrange a fixed fee and obligation free appointment with an experienced criminal lawyer to discuss their pending matters.

In accordance with our professional obligations, we do not give legal advice over the phone unless you or someone close to you is currently under arrest and in the custody of law enforcement. In that case, please contact our office as a matter of urgency on 03 9670 8771. Otherwise we look forward to meeting you to discuss your matter and provide you with peace of mind.

Our service also operates after hours as an emergency service for those who have been arrested and taken into custody through our office number. If your matter is not urgent, please contact our office during business hours (9am – 5pm) and make an appointment to see one of our solicitors.

We are a private law firm and our philosophy is based around client service and consistency. Accordingly, we do not conduct any legal aid work or accept legal aid referrals. If you require a legal aid grant in relation to your matter, we suggest that you utilise the Law Institute Referral Service:
