Founder Edward Raymond 'Ray' Stack grew up on a farm outside Parkes, and gained a scholarship before graduating with honours in law from the University of Sydney. Ray opened a sole practice in Wingham in 1931 at the height of the Great Depression, and quickly built a reputation for providing expert, friendly and cost-effective legal services. In the 1970s, sons Ray, Maurie and Tim joined the firm and since that time we've added more capabilities, more people, more offices and more intelligence to our roster.

The present-day corporate structure is an intelligent collaboration of local, networked offices unlike any other law firm in Australia. Today, Stacks is an organisation of more than 200 people across more than 20 locations, including 5 lawyers in the New England district.

What makes Stacks different and why should you choose Stacks?

  • We aim to serve as lifetime legal partners across all areas of law essential to everyday Australians and businesses; from conveyancing and wealth protection to disputes, commerce and workplace relations.
  • Our collaborative network structure distinguishes us from all other Australian law firms. It means each practice can specialise in its chosen fields, but still provide clients with a full suite of legal services by harnessing the expertise of others in the group.
  • We work closely together, sharing ideas and building on the knowledge we've gained in more than 80 years of practice.
  • We invest in technology, to make sure our services are cost effective and to put clients in control of their own legal affairs.

    We seek to build relationships for life, endeavouring to treat people the way we would want to be treated if in their position.
