About Us

As specialists in child abuse compensation claims, Kelso Lawyers have represented hundreds of survivors of child abuse across Australia.

The firm was established in 1986 by a lawyer, Peter Kelso, a former State ward who has himself experienced child abuse.

We took on our first child abuse case in 1988, and now such cases are the sole focus of our firm.

With Peter at our helm, we have a unique take on how to help survivors of child abuse to rebuild their lives. Every member of our team - from our legal secretaries to our paralegals and solicitors - appreciates the devastating impact child abuse can have on the lives of survivors. Compassion and empathy are at the core of everything we do.
