Who we are?

Established in 2006 we've been servicing businesses and individuals from the local community together with clients located in greater Victoria, Australia and overseas.
Our Aim is to provide the best legal services to our clients in the most cost effective manner possible. We offer honest, practicable and realistic advice.
A wide variety of practice areas ensures that we can assist you with all your legal needs. We pride ourselves in being knowledgable and up to date in the areas of law that we practice, to ensure that the most accurate and relevant advice is provided to clients.
A small firm with a big bite - we're not afraid to brave the storm to get the best results for you, often at a fraction of the price of some of the fat cats out there. We've held our own and created quite a stir with some of the larger firms in town. Our size is your advantage - with reduced overheads, we pass the savings to you.
Why you choose us?
Because we're better.
Malkin Lawyers is a firm of integrity and excellence, offering outstanding service and results at practical and affordable rates.
Go the right way - We'll point you in the right direction as we endeavour to cut through the ‘legalese’ to explain it as it is and advise you as to the practicalities of your circumstances, not just your strict legal rights or obligations.
We fight for you - When you've got Malkin Lawyers on your side, you can rest assured that we'll roll up our sleeves and do what it takes to get the job done. From simple conveyancing to gritty litigation, we've got your back.
We advise you - When the options and choices seem like an infinite maze, we'll cut through the chase to tell it like it is and give you the advice you need to make an informed decision. At no point will we push you to choose anything against your wishes, but we won't shy away from the plain truths of what your choices are and the possible consequences of the same.
We prepare you - If you've got a big contract to sign, a deal you've got to seal or a venture you're about to start, we can prepare you with our extensive experience and equip you with the knowledge and insight required to protect your interests and assist in securing the best possible outcome.
Our results speaks for itself- Why us? As far as customer satisfaction, you can’t argue with client referrals and repeat customer business. Our clients appreciate our candour and for this reason, the principal source of our business is by word-of-mouth referrals.
Dedicated to achieving the best outcomes for clients
We're Commercial - Let's face it, we all know that time is money, and when you're dealing with lawyers, it's more than just a figure of speech. At Malkin Lawyers, we're different. No, we're not free, but we take a commercial approach to your problem.
We're practical - If your case doesn't have merits, we'll say it like it is. If your case has what it takes, but the chances of seeing the fruits of the labour are slim, we'll say it like it is because throwing good money after bad is just not worth it.
We're dedicated - If your case has what it takes and the chances of a good outcome are strong, we're ready to dig in to get the job done. We've taken on the big city firms on more than one occasion and delivered outstanding outcomes for our clients - often at a fraction of the cost of what the fat cats charge.
