Our Story

Property and small business lawyer in the Upper Murray and North East Victoria

A regional law firm that understands regional small businesses

Duly Served Legal & Consulting founder Deborah Culhane is passionate about serving and strengthening regional communities.

With a background in corporate law working for a leading hospitality and tourism company, she has an unparalleled insight into the intricacies of cafes, cinemas, motels, and the many varied tourism businesses that contribute to the success of regional destinations.

Everyone has a story, and we want to hear yours! Deborah takes the time to listen to clients’ needs, goals, and dreams.

We know that some of the best deals are made at the local café over freshly brewed coffee and cake made with locally sourced ingredients. And family feuds are more likely to be settled around the kitchen table than in a courtroom.

With offices in Wodonga and Corryong and regular visits to Gippsland, Southern NSW and Tasmania, Duly Served Legal & Consulting serves North East Victoria, the Upper Murray High Country and beyond.

Whether Deborah is putting a solid succession plan in place for a family-owned farming business or helping a young couple diversify their business offerings and develop a new revenue stream, she pours her heart and soul into every project. Her love of local food, events and beautiful environments means that she's personally committed to her clients' success.

Deborah’s extensive legal experience in the hospitality and tourism industry has given her a deep understanding of the issues her clients face and how to help them scale their businesses both bravely and wisely. She also has a wealth of knowledge about the inner workings of agricultural businesses and a range of other regional industries.

Whether you already own a regional business, you’re looking to buy one or you’re a commercial or residential property investor, Duly Served Legal & Consulting can help you navigate the legal landscape and achieve even your loftiest goals.

Love.    Law.    And a Big Country!
