BJT Legal was founded by the late Thomas Edmund Byrne over 80 years ago. "TE", as he was fondly known, became widely respected and acknowledged as a leading advocate in the Court and in keeping with his strong Irish/Catholic background he was prepared to represent all clients which resulted in clients coming from all over the State seeking his services.
In the 1960's TE's children, Murray, Tim, Peter and Janet joined the firm with Janet's husband, Geoff Torney also commencing. In the 1980's Murray's children, Andrew, Adele and David joined the firm together with Tim's son, Stephen. Andrew and Stephen remain with the firm today. As a result, the firm quickly grew from its Common Law background into a diverse legal practice offering services in most legal areas.
Along with the firms strong family ties it has continually looked for innovative ways to progress and deliver quality services to its clients. The inclusion of personnel with skills that complemented the exisiting family members has seen the firm progress to one of the leading firms in Western Victoria.
