Harris Lieberman Solicitors
We know that our clients are not always interested in the theory behind legal problems or processes, but that they want the right result quickly and without complications.
As one of the larger firms in our region, and the only one with substantial offices in both Wodonga and Albury, we can offer our clients a broader range of legal services than most local firms. By choosing Harris Lieberman our clients can have their legal work undertaken close to home, saving time and cost and with the benefit of “local knowledge.”
The firm opened for business in 1886 when Mr Edmondstone began his legal practice in chambers in High Street, Wodonga. Although we have moved our office location several times, the firm has been in continuous practice ever since.
Stewart Harris, a prominent figure in the Wodonga legal community, subsequently joined the firm in the 1930s. On 14 February 1966 Lou Lieberman, later a State and Federal Parliamentarian, joined the firm and it became known as “Harris Lieberman & Co”.
Many of our clients have grown with the firm. We have represented several generations of many families, particularly from the river valleys of North East Victoria.
In 2000 the firm opened an office in Albury, now on the corner of Olive and Smollett Street, Albury (the former Christian Brothers College Building).
In 2015 we moved our Wodonga office into the current location at 87 Hume Street Wodonga.
From 1886 the firm has grown from a modest start to be one of our region’s largest law firms. Today we have 2 directors and 19 staff, all committed to furthering our clients’ interests, and those of our community.
As a local business whose clients and staff live and work in Albury, Wodonga and surrounding areas, we take our community involvement very seriously.
We currently sponsor twelve local organisations, and our directors and staff are involved in a diverse range of community activities.
Among others we sponsor the Border District Show Jumping Club, the Tallangatta Secondary College legal studies prize, the Brocklesby-Burrumbuttock Football Club.
We participate in local events such as the City 2 City Run/Walk and Relay for Life.
Pro bono work is another element of our community involvement. We assist a number of local organizations, on a voluntary basis.
Individuals within the firm also enthusiastically support the local community.
