About Us


Shire Legal was formed in 2003 by principal, Melissa Lammers, who identified a definite need for clients to be offered a more innovative approach to obtaining legal services. 

Since then, Melissa has built Shire Legal into a firm with a genuine client focus. Our team work hard to provide unparalleled client service by building long lasting relationships with clients and referral partners. 

Our clients include businesses both large and small, industry associations, strata managers, families, individuals, landlords and property developers.  In early 2017, after identifying a need for a city presence, Shire Legal secured office premises in King Street, Sydney, for the purposes of meeting with clients with businesses and workplaces in the city, and for those clients with court matters.

Shire Legal's lawyers are members of various professional organisations, such as:

Shire Legal also recently entered a team into the local Sutherland to Surf Fun Run.

Shire Legal's success is reflected in our client comments.
