KelledyJones Lawyers
Different for Good Reason

KelledyJones is unique in South Australia. We provide dedicated legal, strategic and business support exclusively to South Australian councils, public authorities and not-for profits.

Our people, our passion and our practical advice set us apart. Our specialist lawyers deliver the depth and knowledge of a large firm, with the efficiency and responsiveness of a smaller firm.

We’ve set out in our Undertaking that we will not act against or contrary to the interests of any council.

Upcoming Workshops and Seminars:

Practical Training: Council Member Post Election Essentials 2018/2019

Don’t do too much too soon”, is the message we are hearing over and over from councils about the mandatory training.  Accordingly, KelledyJones Lawyers has developed an incremental training methodology that provides council members, whether returned or new, with the essential knowledge to commence their 4 – year terms of office.
