Hallam & Littlewood – Solicitors and Conveyancers, is a boutique practice providing legal services to the Hunter Region of NSW.

Established in 1980, the firm was originally mentored by Frederick Charles Hallam, a retired solicitor and former Mayor of the City of Greater Cessnock, who interrupted his legal career to serve as a navigator in the RAAF during the Second World War. Our people now include two highly skilled senior solicitors, Robert William Littlewood, Kristine Hallam Littlewood, Lisa Maree Littlewood and experienced support staff, all of whom are dedicated to the “old-fashioned” values of service, integrity and absolute discretion.

The firm is located in the main street of Cessnock, a busy, growing town at the gateway to the Hunter Valley vineyards and close to the coastal areas of Newcastle City and Port Stephens. Drawing traditionally from the long time residents, business people and organisations of Cessnock, Kurri Kurri, Maitland and Singleton, and the rural landholders and farming communities of the Wollombi Valley and the Lower and Upper Hunter, our clientele is now quite diverse. Over the last fifteen years the client base has expanded to service the influx from Sydney and the Central Coast regions, of people and businesses, investing in and re-locating to the Hunter, for the economic opportunities and lifestyle benefits that abound here. In addition, the latest technology ensures that any geographic distance between our office and our clients is inconsequential: we can e-mail you on the other side of the world or make a home visit.

Our main practice areas are:

  1. Conveyancing & Property Law

  2. Wills, Powers of Attorney & Guardianship

  3. Deceased Estates (Succession law) & Family Provision Act claims

  4. Family Law

  5. Companies, Partnerships & Small Business

  6. Criminal Law and Litigation

  7. Litigation

We have a commitment to the provision of highly professional and affordable service with a focus on personal attention to the individual needs of each and every client. We guarantee communication, consultation and attention to detail.

Our highly qualified solicitors will conduct your file personally: there is no risk that your matter will be “lost” to an unqualified, unknown face in a cubicle; and because our solicitors work very closely together, they are able collaborate to ensure that you are given the best possible comprehensive legal service.
