In 2019, the name changed to Halyburton Legal to reflect the new ownership and to embrace a new era in the life of the firm. While our clients can expect to see familiar faces and receive the same high quality service, the staff share Kathryn's passion to modernize and grow the business.

We look forward to continuing to assist and support the community and clients of West Lake Macquarie area.
