About Us

Our Law firm began in 1880 when Seton Gordon Williams commenced practice in Melbourne. We are therefore one of the oldest legal firms in Victoria.

Seton Gordon Williams died in 1927 and the firm became Seton Williams & Heathfield and then Seton Williams & Smyth. We opened in Eltham in the 1960s.

The firm changed its name to Lorraine Jones & Associates in 1996. In 2008, we purchased the practice of Brian J. Weyman & Co. and have successfully welcomed clients of that firm.

Throughout its history, our firm has always striven to service its clients in a professional manner but with a personal approach.

Our firm has witnessed Eltham and surrounding areas grow into the thriving and vibrant community it is today.
