RMB Lawyers helped The Shepherd Centre last week by providing free legal advice for supporters needing assistance drawing up their will. The legal team offered their services pro bono.

RMB Lawyers has provided support to charity since 2015. A past parent of The Shepherd Centre is the daughter of John Brown who became a partner of what was Russell & McLelland in 1956, marking the official beginning RMB Lawyers

The Shepherd Centre chief executive Dr Jim Hungerford, said the not-for-profit charity relied heavily on the support of businesses like RMB Lawyers and was deeply grateful.

"This initiative helps us to support the hundreds of families who turn to us each year to provide a family-centred early intervention program to teach children born deaf or hearing impaired how to develop spoken language."

RMB Lawyers' Adam Barlow said The Shepherd Centre did incredible work in the community. Since its foundation in 1970, The Shepherd Centre has assisted more than 2500 children.
