All-fe­male law firm draws on di­verse back­ground, ex­pe­ri­ence

Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - NEWS - Jil­lian McKee

IN A pro­fes­sion dom­i­nated by males, so­lic­i­tors Bev­erly Boyle, An­jli Chowd­hary and as­sis­tant San­dra Wade have more than 70 years of le­gal ex­pe­ri­ence be­tween them.

Owner of Mt Druitt’s new­est and only all-fe­male law firm, West­ern Syd­ney Le­gal, Ms Chowd­hary said the allfe­male makeup wasn’t planned but worked per­fectly.

“It’s the way it hap­pened with our staff, but we are very happy with how it’s turned out,” she said.

“It is a very male-dom­i­nated pro­fes­sion, es­pe­cially out in west­ern Syd­ney, and in the older age group it’s un­usual.

“We pro­vide a very non­threat­en­ing en­vi­ron­ment — we have ex­pe­ri­ence and chil­dren and mar­riage splits be­tween us all ... so we are very hands-on.”

West­ern Syd­ney Le­gal of­fers a “mixed bag” of le­gal ser­vices, from fam­ily law to wills to im­mi­gra­tion law.

Mrs Chowd­hary bought the prac­tice re­cently af­ter a 20-year hia­tus from the work­force.

She said the Mt Druitt com­mu­nity had wel­comed

... we have ex­pe­ri­ence and chil­dren and mar­riage splits be­tween us all ... we are very hands-on An­jli Chowd­hary

her with open arms.

“I love the com­mu­nity — it is what is great about the job,” Mrs Chowd­hary said.

“I was work­ing in a big law firm in the city and it was im­per­sonal — work­ing here it is more re­ward­ing, as you are re­ally mak­ing a dif­fer­ence in peo­ple’s lives.”
