Jye Cunneen, Alecia Roman and their team at MGR Solicitors are driven by the desire to provide clients with the best possible legal services in a local setting.

We are motivated by a few simple principles: to always give our clients face-to-face and friendly service; to always remember that we owe it to our clients to be the best solicitors that we can be; to teach and train our staff how to be experts in their fields; and to always search for better ways of doing things.

Please see the What We Do section to see what services we offer.


Starting off life as McSwineys Lawyers at the turn of the 1900s, our firm has been a pillar of the Wangaratta and North East community for well over 100 years, servicing many thousands of clients over the decades.

Left in terrific shape by John McSwiney, Alecia, Jye and their team ensure this famous old firm continues its long and magnificent life as MGR Solicitors.

While we face the future with confidence, we celebrate our history and acknowledge that the old ways are sometimes the best ways.

The firm has had a long, successful and celebrated history, having been owned by three generations of the well-respected Wangaratta legal family, the McSwiney family. We also have the unique privilege of being able to say that we were once home to the first female lawyer in Australia, Flos Grieg.

We look forward to assisting you.
