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 Mt Druitt’s newest and only all-female law firm, Western Sydney Legal, Ms Chowdhary said the all-female 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 non-threatening 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 brought the practice recently after 20-year hiatus from the workforce.

She said the Mt Druitt community had welcomed 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.”
