About Us

Expert legal advice and guidance you can rely on when you need it most.

Tonkin Legal Group is a leading law firm in Melbourne's north eastern suburbs. You can rely on our expert legal advice to protect your best interests and those of your family.

Formerly known as David Stagg Tonkin & Company Solicitors, we have been serving the local community for more than 50 years.


Over this time, we have earned a strong reputation for ensuring our clients achieve the best outcome possible on their legal matter. No matter what the issue, you can rely on the expert advice and experience of our supportive team to protect your best interests and those of your loved ones.

We specialise in three key areas of law:

We have also built strong relationships with other leading advisers in the area, working collaboratively with financial advisers, banks and accountants, relationship counsellors and mediators and real estate agents to meet all the needs of our clients.

We know that many of our clients are facing difficult personal situations - from the death of a loved one to the end of a relationship - and that dealing with a lawyer is often the last thing they want to do!

We work hard on making this experience as painless and informed as possible. 

We explain your legal options clearly, recommend the best approach based on your unique situation and our experience and are transparent about the likely costs. 

This commitment to the care of our clients has helped us grow to become the leading law firm in the north eastern suburbs of Melbourne, as our clients and our network of advisers recommend us to their friends, colleagues and clients needing legal advice. 

We're here with expert legal advice and guidance when you need it most.
