About SLM Law

For more than a century, SLM Law has been serving the Colac Otway region. We’re locals serving locals – we understand the needs of modern families, farmers and business owners alike. We work to ensure that we are available when and where you need us – that’s why, in addition to our Colac head office, we have branch offices in Camperdown, Cobden and Apollo Bay. As well as looking after the needs of South West Victorians, we also regularly assist clients in Winchelsea, Geelong and Melbourne.


Property law is an extremely complex area of law and our lawyers will guide you through the process- from signing a contract to settlement.

Wills & Estates

Having an up-to-date and properly drafted will makes life easier for those left behind. We will ensure your will is properly tailored to your circumstances.

Commercial Law

Buying or selling a business? Need a lease or partnership agreement? We will ensure your matter is dealt with diligently and that you have the proper paperwork in place.

Rural Law

Many of our lawyers and staff have rural backgrounds and this assists us in bringing a practical approach to your farming related matters.


Our range of experience includes debt collection, building disputes, contractual disputes and general commercial litigation.

Debt Collection

We know how frustrating it is to have to pursue outstanding debts owed to you or your business. We have a great deal of local knowledge which can assist in the recovery process.
