Solicitors In Canberra
We Have Listed The Top 10 Solicitors In Canberra To Help You Choose The Best Professional Solicitors For Your Needs.
Maliganis Edwards Johnson
We are legal specialists in personal injury and understand the complexity of the laws that govern compensation in the ACT.
Our experienced team know that without the right legal advice and representation you can miss out on fair compensation and incur unnecessary costs.
We take on the big insurance companies each and every day and have secured many millions of dollars for our clients.
We know more, give more and achieve more.
We understand that embarking upon legal action at such a stressful time can be daunting. That is why we walk hand in hand with our clients to guide them through the process at each step of the way.
Our philosophy is simple—if you’ve been injured through someone else’s fault then you deserve fair compensation. However, it’s important that you act quickly to achieve the best possible result. We offer a free initial consultation and work on a ‘no win’—no fee basis.
Our ‘no win—no fee’ agreement applies to the vast majority of our cases, but there are some more complex claims (such as challenging medical law issues) that may require a contribution to the upfront cost of investigating your claim. Our team will make sure you are aware of any costs before you sign up to be our client.

Farrar Gesini Dunn Family Lawyers
Farrar Gesini Dunn (FGD) was the first in Canberra and one of the first law firms in Australia to practice exclusively in family law.
FGD has been around for more than 20 years and we have offices in Canberra, Sydney and Melbourne.
The firm practices in the areas of family law (including pre-nuptial agreements), wills and estates, domestic violence, collaborative law, and superannuation. FGD elects to practice only in areas in which we specialise and not as general legal practitioners.
We remember that our clients are people and we are in the privileged position of helping our clients, some who are at a point in their lives which is one of the most difficult they will encounter and are therefore vulnerable. We remember that what we do matters and will impact on people’s lives – our clients, their children, their families and friends, their work, and their community.
We charge our clients fairly. We don’t incur fees that are out of proportion to the benefit to the client and we don’t price gouge. We also don’t undervalue our knowledge and experience and the benefits we give our clients.
We focus on doing things differently, for both clients and staff. Our core purpose is: ‘To help and empower people with compassion and innovation.’
Our professionals listen to our client’s needs and help them find the process and outcome that suits their circumstances. There isn’t only one way of looking at a situation.
We have unique offices to promote staff satisfaction and client engagement. We have designed our office spaces to look less like a law and accounting firm, and more like a home.
We strive to have a work environment which supports our lives and values women. None of our Directors have offices. They share the open plan space with everyone else.
FGD supports their clients resolving matters out of court wherever possible.

Your matter will be handled by one of our principals or a qualified solicitor, who are ably assisted by our competent and proactive support staff. In each instance we would like you to meet the individuals who will be working on your matter.
Our strength lies in this caring and friendly approach, administered by the expertise and diversity of our dedicated team. We are all different, yet we share the same vision – finding the best result for you.
Our objective is to identify the needs of our clients and respond promptly to their concerns with effective solutions.
Our commitment is recognised by our client satisfaction, client retention and client recommendation together with favourable acknowledgements and referrals by our peers.
Lexmerca Lawyers was founded in 2014 by solicitors and good friends, Jason Wenning and John Chamberlain. Having spent years working for small and national law firms, Jason and John aspired to establish a boutique business that placed outstanding client service at the centre of their work. United by their common vision of providing a personalised, reliable, and competitive legal service, Lexmerca Lawyers was born.
Since its establishment, Lexmerca Lawyers has been dedicated to providing exceptional legal service to its many clients, and developing strong business relationships with associates and colleagues. This was formally recognised in 2017 when the prestigious Doyle’s Guide, an internationally-focused service dedicated to identifying the best legal firms and solicitors, named Lexmerca Lawyers as one of the Best Law Firms in Australia.
We have shaped our practice in such a way as to eliminate the costly overheads traditionally associated with large law firms. By eliminating the costs that offer little direct value to clients, we are able to offer exactly what they are seeking — specialised advice from reliable solicitors, at competitive rates. We trademark our work with clever strategies, common sense, and practical solutions. Your needs are important to us.
