Michael Speck attended the University of Adelaide, graduating in 1980 with a Bachelor of Law before being admitted by the Supreme Court of South Australia in February 1981.
After working in several small firms in the 1980’s, he worked with the mid-tier firm Elston & Gilchrist before managing their southern suburbs office.
In 1995 he founded Michael W Speck & Co, specialising in Family Law, Personal Injury Compensation, Workers Compensation, Wills and Estates and Inheritance Claims.
Michael likes working for the little people and takes great pride in seeing that they are well informed and well represented. He brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to his overall approach. Without being unfair to Michael, you could say he is “an old hand”.
Michael is a keen cyclist, having participated in Melbourne’s Round the Bay in a Day, L’Étape du Tour (a mountain stage in the Tour de France) and several of the public stages in the Tour Down Under.
He is also a keen and enthusiastic Argentine Tango dancer.
Carmal attended Flinders University of South Australia, graduating with a double degree in both Behavioural Science (Psychology) and Law. Carmal chose Law as her profession, initially working as a Judge’s Associate in the Family Court of Australia.
This proved to be a good foundation for work as a family lawyer in a private law firm.
Carmal has since worked as a lawyer specialising in Family Law, Wills and Estates, Contested Estates and Inheritance Claims. She worked for two suburban law firms before joining Michael W Speck & Co.
With a young family of her own, Carmal has her own experience and insight into the issues of family life which helps her identify with many of us who experience the trauma of separation and divorce.
