Lorraine’s love of the law began at the age of 15 years when she was employed as a junior law clerk with J. Allan Anderson & Son, Melbourne in 1957.
As a mature age student, Lorraine gained her Law Degree at Melbourne University in 1984 and she joined the law firm of Seton Williams & Smyth in 1985.
Lorraine was the Principal of Lorraine Jones & Associates from 1996 until 2021 when her son, Dean Jones and his business partner took over the firm. It is a great source of pride for Lorraine that Dean, who has been an integral part of Lorraine Jones & Associates for the past 10 years, is now at the helm of her beloved firm.
During the past 37 years, Lorraine has helped her clients legally and personally through their times of sadness and grief as well as attending to the complexities and demands of the Law. It has been her privilege to act for and guide clients in some of the major disastrous events in Victoria, particularly the “Black Saturday” bushfires. Her maturity, experience and compassion has assisted clients in the wider ramifications of those catastrophic events.
It is most rewarding to Lorraine to have her past clients send their children and now their grandchildren to her and our law firm for legal advice.
