About Garling & Co Lawyers
Adventure or the promise of untold wealth!
What drove Frederick Garling to sail to the colony of NSW with his wife and 5 children in 1814 will never be known however what is known is that he became a founding father of the legal industry of NSW.
Frederick Garling was born in London in 1775 and became a solicitor in the Court of Kings Bench until selected to go Sydney to help establish the legal framework for the new colony. He became the first crown solicitor in Australia in 1815.
He became Judge Advocate of the Colony in 1816 and held many important posts as well as building a successful private legal practice. He was recommended for the post of Attorney General of Tasmania but narrowly missed out on the appointment instead becoming a founding member of both the Bank of NSW and the Australian Racing Club.
The Garling name has remained in the law for now close to 200 years. Since then, the Garling family has had a long tradition in the law, more recently Anthony Garling was appointed a Judge of the District Court of NSW, Peter Garling was appointed a Judge of the Supreme Court.
The firm was founded by Matthew Garling, direct descendant of Frederick Garling on a vision to provide outstanding service to our client’s and improving on the inefficiencies and costs associated with current law firm practice.
