Liston Legal

Covid-19 Update

Attendances & Appointments

Liston Legal will no longer be able to see clients in any matter without an appointment being made in advance by phone.

We cannot accept walk in appointments/attendances. If you arrive at our door and want an appointment please ring the office and we will take your instructions by way of a telephone discussion at an agreed time.

Clients who need to attend the office to sign documents in current matters must also ring first to arrange that appointment. If you have arrived here intending to come straight in, please make the call from the footpath and we should be able to let you in.

We regret having to make these decisions but it is in the interests of you, our staff and all other members of the community.

We thank you for your understanding.

Liston Legal has been providing legal advice, court representation, conveyancing services and legal assistance in wills and estate matters throughout the New England community since the 1930's.

We offer clients the services of a skilled and experienced property, wills and estates and commercial lawyer and advice and court representation by a former barrister and senior counsel. 

Our clients come from Glen Innes, Armidale, Inverell, Tenterfield, Guyra and elsewhere in the New England region. 

Although the firm has operated under a number of different names over the years, partners and staff have always provided timely and comprehensive advice and representation.

The firm believes in providing good service and quick solutions to all your legal problems.

Our fees are reasonable and competitive. We are always happy to explore payment arrangements which suit you, the client.
