We're available in Newstead.

Cost effective legal services in Newstead, Daylesford, Hepburn Springs, Maldon, Guildford, Castlemaine, Clydesdale and surrounding areas.

In April 2018, we commenced a monthly visit to Newstead, where we provide legal services from the refurbished Newstead Railway Artshub building. From July 2018, our visits to Newstead will increase to every 3rd Thursday, from 10am - 2pm, and may increase to fortnightly in 2019. Consults are by appointment only.

In Newstead, we will offer local businesses, including those from Daylesford, Castlemaine, Maldon, Guildford, Hepburn Springs and all surrounding areas within Central Victoria, our legal services which are tailored to the needs of small business. With a view to meeting the needs of the local community however, we will also expand our service offering in Newstead to include wills and conveyancing. 

We can arrange referrals for criminal and family law matters, and most other areas of law not currently serviced by Avenue Solutions.

Need an accountant?

We've got that covered, too.

Since our establishment in 2011, a core feature of our services to small business has been the availability of affordable accounting and taxation advice, again with a special focus on micro and small business. These services are now provided by our sister firm which also trades as Avenue Solutions. Services are available in our Melbourne office but we can take instructions in Newstead.

Why are we consulting from Newstead?

In 2016, our lawyer Richard Stewart purchased land in the local area and hopes, eventually, to permanently move to the area from Melbourne. For this reason, Richard has decided to start offering legal services locally, with a view to increasing this slowly over time. Initially, we will work from the beautifully refurbished Newstead Railway Artshub building, which we hope to support during our time consulting from this building. Already, we have been able to see the work of the talented local artists who frequently exhibit their works in the Artshub building and we hope to support the local artists. Visitors can find information about the Newstead Railway Artshub building here.

Richard has practised as a country lawyer previously, having started legal practice in Tamworth NSW (near to where he grew up). Since that time Richard has undertaken a diverse array of legal work, including wills, family law, criminal law, civic compliance law, court/advocacy work in his role as Principal Lawyer of the North Melbourne Legal Service (now Inner Melbourne Community Legal). At Avenue Solutions, Richard practices mostly in commercial law but will expand his practice to meet the needs of the local communities in and around Newstead. Read more about Richard here. 

If there is a matter with which you think we can assist, please do get in touch with Richard on (03) 9092 9891 or 0419 494 849, or by email to richard@avenuesolutions.com.au.
