The Johnston Withers Lawyers’ Adelaide office has been around for over 75 years, but that doesn’t mean we rest on our laurels.
We anticipate and adapt to change, and help push the boundaries of what can be done. We care about what happens here in Adelaide; not just as lawyers, but also as members of the community.
Our team of lawyers in Adelaide are here to listen, advise, and provide expert advice that’s unique to your situation. Our teams are at the top of their field, and our clients know they can rely on us for honest, practical and comprehensive advice.
We connect the best lawyers in Adelaide with the people who need them the most:
Family matters can be stressful at the best of times, let alone when the law is involved. If you’re experiencing divorce, child custody issues or family disputes, we’re here to listen and help.
If you’ve been hurt or suffered injuries as a result of someone else’s actions or negligence, talk to us about seeking damages from the people or organisation responsible.
Whether you need help making a will, managing a deceased estate or guidance challenging a will, we’ll make sure your assets and estate are properly looked after when you die.
We act for companies and individuals with respect to general commercial matters and assist with financial issues including mortgage and loan origination, property advice and asset structuring, including for farmers.
From first homes and family farms to commercial leases and business contracts, our experienced team is here to help with comprehensive conveyancing services.
What others say about you matters. If you’ve experienced reputational damage as a result of defamatory comments or if you need to defend a defamation claim, our solicitors can help.
We understand that being charged with an offence of any kind can be distressing, regardless of the seriousness of the allegation. Our expert criminal law team is here to advocate for you.
Our litigation lawyers are here to help with all kinds of dispute resolution matters, from contested estates and trust litigation to intellectual property disputes and debt recovery.

We work with the Cancer Council’s social workers to offer free wills for cancer patients who can’t afford one.
