WHAT CLIENTS SAY ABOUT US
“Liz and Kerrie at Hughes & Co. Forbes have been absolutely amazing throughout the property purchase process for my two sons. The communication and their knowledge was absolutely A+! I can’t thank them enough for the professionalism and smooth experience.”
“Thank you Sarah and Emma for your understanding, professionalism and caring attitude at a time that was very hard on us as a family. We would recommend Hughes & Co.”
"I used Hughes & Co. For a family law matter. They were only too happy to help with every little part of it. Any problem I had, Steph and the team would sort it out. I would highly recommend them to anyone.”
"I have had an issue with an NSW Organisation for a couple of years that I could not resolve on my own. I was visiting Hughes & Co. On a separate matter and after I mentioned my troubles, they advised me that I had quite an easy case. They acted on my behalf and from the beginning the service I received from all staff was exceptional. I would highly recommend this firm to anyone in need of mediation or advice.”
Hughes & Co. Lawyers & Conveyancing was established in April 2014 by Director Steph Hughes who went on to open the Parkes office in January 2015. This was the start of something much bigger, a physical presence in a town that prides itself on being a rural economic hub for the central west of NSW.
Our presence in Parkes was exceptionally well met. The Parkes community embraced our firm with warm open arms and our business grew from strength to strength. We provided a new, innovative and professional legal option.
It wasn’t long before we outgrew our first Parkes office and in May 2016, Hughes & Co. acquired the office of Callachor & Helby Solicitors at 19 Court Street, Parkes, and the staff of that firm joined our team. It was full steam ahead and exciting times indeed. We became conveniently located in the heart of the CBD, with an even bigger and better team of people.
With so much impact being achieved locally it wasn’t long before Forbes “came-a-knocking” and in January 2017, we acquired the office of Palmers Solicitors which led to the establishment of our Forbes office at 9 Harold Street. This expansion allowed Hughes & Co. to grow its strong Forbes connections and build on our existing networks to better service Forbes and surrounding areas.
Our influence in Forbes was such that in July 2018, we acquired McGroders Solicitors and the staff of that firm joined our growing team. We re-located the previous McGroders practice to our existing offices in Harold Street Forbes and seamlessly carried on providing exceptional legal services to the Forbes and greater community.
In 2022, Hughes & Co opened its first Dubbo office. Conveniently located in the heart of town, the office will perfectly complement the firm’s existing service offerings. The office has been designed as a hub for the firm’s busy Dubbo Court roster, while offering a centralised meeting location for clients in the Dubbo community and further west, who travel to the town to access services.
