Meet the Lawyers

Expert legal representation in your State
DPL’s principal legal representatives are listed by city below:
  • Sydney
  • Darwin
  • Adelaide
  • Hobart
  • Perth
  • Brisbane
  • Melbourne

Without exception, all the lawyers used by DPL in recent years (and in some cases for over 30 years) are continuing to assist our members throughout Australia today. Dental cases require a specialised knowledge and understanding, which cannot be acquired overnight and we strongly disagree with those who believe that dental cases can be handled by relatively inexperienced junior lawyers with little or no background in dental cases.

Separate advisory and legal representation is  provided where two or more members are involved n the same case and a potential or actual conflict of interest arises. Other specialist lawyers in these and other firms will be instructed where necessary and appropriate.
