New generations of women in the law make Bendigo their home

Over the past twenty years the number of women graduating from Australian universities has been steadily increasing and as at May 2018 there were more female lawyers registered with the Victorian Legal Services Board than male lawyers. The legal community is embracing these trends, paving the way for new generations of women in the law. 

Arnold Dallas McPherson are proud advocates for equality before the law and it has therefore been a natural inclination to support and employ an increasing number of female lawyers. Their lawyers have been assisting central Victorians for nearly 25 years with WorkCover, TAC, Comcare and Public Liability injuries matters, as well as related superannuation and insurance claims. Employment law and Victims of Crime claims are also within the expertise of the firm.
