Our Values

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

We have been servicing the local community for over 50 years - and are proud (and very protective) of the reputation we have built as the leading law firm for Melbourne's north eastern suburbs.

We have achieved this reputation because our staff are committed to achieving the best outcome for each and every client.

We value trust, the pursuit of excellence, team work and integrity. 

We don't just want to get the best possible service and have your matters handled in a professional manner, we want to make sure you always know what's going on and feel confident in your legal dealings. 

You are in good hands.

Trusted legal service provider

We have been servicing the local area for over 50 years and have grown to be a trusted legal service provider within the community. We've helped thousands of people from Melbourne's north eastern suburbs achieve the best possible outcome.

We pursue excellence

Our team pursues excellence while completing your matter in a professional, efficient and cost effective manner. We are a member of the prestigious Law Australasia group, an association of nineteen law firms throughout the country which strive, as we do, to deliver excellent legal services to clients.

We are one of only three law firms in Melbourne to be members of Law Australasia and have access to the best tools to ensure that we meet our clients’ needs in the most efficient and cost effective way. 

Being part of a larger group also provides Tonkin Legal to greater resources. Members of Law Australasia work collaboratively and provide assistance and legal advice to fellow member firms. What does this mean to you? Essentially, we have 18 firms behind us that can assist with all matters.

Personal service, integrity and teamwork

We pride ourselves on our commitment to personal service and integrity. We work as a team and are sensitive to your specific needs. Our professionals discuss and review each matter regularly to ensure that we are doing everything we can to achieve the best results possible.
