Recognising the rapid population growth in Sydney’s South-West region, Owen Hodge Lawyers has expanded to a new office location in Oran Park, a newly developed residential and commercial hub within the South-West corridor of Sydney.

Oran Park is a geographical and commercial centre in the Camden local government area, which is forecast to have a population of over 220,000 people by 2036; an increase of over 250% in less than 20 years.

The Oran Park office will build on the expert quality legal services offered by Owen Hodge Lawyers at its existing Hurstville and Sydney CBD offices and will include Estate Planning, Family Law, Criminal, Civil and Commercial Litigation, Wills & Estates, Elder Law, Mortgages, Leases and Business Transactions.

The Oran Park office will be led by Kristy Hatcher, an experienced solicitor and Camden local. Ms Hatcher completed her Bachelor of Laws degree at UWS Campbelltown and was admitted as a solicitor in 2005. Kristy has received a number of accolades, including being recognised in 2006 for her volunteer work at the Macarthur Legal Centre, which earned her a nomination for an Award from the Law & Justice Foundation of New South Wales. Ms Hatcher is in the process of completing a Master of Laws (Applied Law) with a major in Wills.

“It’s not unusual for the community in Camden and its surrounds to have to travel to Campbelltown or even the Sydney CBD to access legal services. I’m thrilled to be able to work in my local community, making these important legal services more accessible,” said Ms Hatcher.

“Owen Hodge Lawyers has a proud history of servicing greater Sydney. As the fastest growing region in NSW, our expansion to Sydney’s South-West is a natural next step,” said Owen Hodge Lawyers’ Managing Partner Rolf Howard.

“Our goal at Owen Hodge Lawyers is to ensure that competitively priced and high quality legal services are accessible to everyone which makes servicing growing communities a top priority.”
