Our Story

“Family Law, Criminal Law, Conveyancing and Wills & Estates are what we are known for and what we do well”.

“Joliman Lawyers commenced their operations in Country Victoria in January 2002 by opening their first practice in Cohuna and later that year Echuca. In time the practice was able to act for clients under both Victoria and NSW state law. As a result their spread of clients increased to include Koondrook/Barham, Mathoura, Deniliquin, Cohuna, Kerang, Kyabram, Swan Hill, Rochester and Bendigo. Then in April 2012 Joliman Lawyers announced a third office to house their successful Conveyancing division also in Echuca.


From the very beginning Joliman Lawyers have striven to establish a friendly down-to-earth legal practice. Although Family Law became the focus of the practice, Conveyancing and Wills and Estates, because of the needs of the farming and business community they serviced, became additional areas of specialisation.

The results of market research conducted across their client base identified three outstanding qualities of the practice. These values were described by clients as:

  1. Professional: ensuring the best outcomes are achieved.
  2. Personable: friendly, caring, empathetic and down-to-earth approach.
  3. Proactive: ensuring clients are kept informed regarding the progress of their matters. We also ensure that we keep abreast of the latest legislative changes and their impacts on our client’s circumstances.

As a result Joliman Lawyers have grown to become one of the most awarded legal practices in country Victoria in recent years.

Joliman Lawyers offers a legal advice service to people regardless of their financial circumstances. Clients are able to obtain access to Legal Aid through the firm.

The first half hour appointment free of charge to all new clients.
