Our Geelong office is proudly located in the heart of Geelong on Moorabool Street, between Ryrie and Myers Streets, next door to Kerley’s Auctions.

Rachel Schutze is the Partner managing our Geelong and South West Victorian office. She is one of Victoria’s leading plaintiff personal injury lawyers, achieving significant financial outcomes for thousands of injured people. She has been practising in personal injury law for more than 20 years.

Our Geelong team understand that coming to see a lawyer after suffering an injury at work, on the road or in a public or private space is often the worst time of your life. It is essential that your rights and entitlements be looked after by highly skilled professionals. We are dedicated to delivering the best financial results & claim outcomes, and have the skills to accomplish this in the shortest time possible.
