We’re not changing what we do, just the way we do it.
We shall endeavour to provide as high a level of service as is possible in the circumstances but:

Face to face meetings will be held only if essential (and if permitted by government rules). All client conferences will be conducted by telephone or electronic means;
For Wills, Enduring Powers of Attorney and Appointments of Enduring Guardian, instructions will be received and advice given by telephone and/or e-mail;
Wills will be prepared and sent by e-mail to the client for printing with instructions for signing;

However, we anticipate that statutory measures will be introduced to accommodate the execution of these and similar documents and if this happens, we shall update this advice. Otherwise, these documents can be signed when the current crisis has passed.
If you have a current court matter, your lawyer will advise you as to the current procedures being adopted by the court during the crisis.

A Sign of Madness?

This week, we received a notice from the RMS that it proposes to install a permanent electric sign in March Street near Richmond oval between Easter Market and West Market Streets to "Provide information to allow motorists to make informed decisions about their journey. At this location, the sign will provide information for westbound traffic along March Street through North Richmond and along Bells Line of Road towards Lithgow and beyond, during planned and unplanned weather and traffic incidents which cause delays or road closures"

We have sent the following response to: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., with copies to local members and the Mayor:

"Dear Sir/Madam,

I refer to your notice regarding the proposed installation of the abovementioned sign.

I respectfully submit that the proposed position of the sign is wholly inappropriate for the reason that but the time motorists observe the sign, they are already committed to driving in a westerly direction along March Street.

It would make more sense for any such signs to be positioned on the approach to Ricmond, namely Blacktown Road and Hawkesbury Valley Way, to provide motorisrs with advanced warning and enable them to make decisions about which route to adopt.

Also, the positioning of a permanent sign in the position proposed will detract from the heritage oval which is the centrepiece of the Richmond township.

Whilst I appreciate that you are focused on building roads, there is a need to consider practical solutions and the amenity of the town and its residents"

If you agree with our position, you may also like to notify our elected representatives.
