The new Solicitor General has also demonstrated commitment to ensuring justice for all, including those requiring pro bono assistance.
“All ALA members look forward to the continuation of the long tradition of the Solicitor General not only providing impartial advice to the State but also setting a standard for all lawyers acting on behalf of the WA government and its agencies”, said ALA State President, Graham Droppert.
