A timeline of our proud history


South of Adelaide on the banks of the River Angas in Strathalbyn. Protector of the people, Edward Jones Tucker, establishes a bustling law firm and served 3 terms as Strathalbyn’s Mayor. He acted as conveyancer, executor, and legal advisor to residents. Here, our story begins.


The Southern Flinders Ranges. Another crusader for justice, Clare Hannan, establishes a successful law firm.
This is the next chapter in our story.


Fleurieu Peninsula; 2012, Mid North. Our priority is protecting the rights of people in regional communities. Our story is still just beginning.


Dulwich, Adelaide. Tireless protector of people’s rights, Andrew Wright opens WK Lawyers. This is the start of another story.


CBD, Adelaide. It’s time to expand our reach beyond regional communities. Our story is clear; we are here for the people of South Australia.


The 2 stories become one. Boylan Lawyers and WK Lawyers merge.
