It’s strange how the small innocuous choices we make every day can sometimes change the course of our entire lives.
For Forster-born Josh Crowther, that seminal moment came when he was a student at Newcastle University.
He was studying journalism, but one day he was chatting to a female law student he was somewhat taken with, and on the spur of the moment decided to tag along to her next lecture.
It was a lecture on commercial law, and no one was more surprised than Josh when he found the lecture fascinating. He loved the mental process, the arguing, the building up of a legal case for a client, the fight against injustice and the righting of wrongs through the law itself.
Whether the girl had anything to do with his decision to switch to law is a moot point, but for Josh, that experience was like a light being turned on.
“I instantly knew I’d found what I wanted to do,” Josh said. “People get into all sorts of difficulties and as a lawyer I’m thrilled when I can help them.”
Josh Crowther recently moved from the Bromhead Legal firm in Forster to Stacks Law Firm in Taree as the firm’s contested estates specialist.
“People need to know that if they are left out of a will they could have the right to challenge it and be awarded part of the estate,” Josh said.
“People have rights in contested estates they may not be aware of, and I find it exciting to be able to help them.”
People can find out if they have a case by talking to Josh at Stacks Law Firm in Taree. The first consultation is free.
Josh wants to always live and practice law in the Taree-Forster region where he has an active life playing rugby, latin dancing and doing charcoal sketches.
But he’s not limited to the local area. Josh has discovered that Stacks Law Firm has a wide and highly skilled network of legal experts across NSW he can draw on.
“Technology such as video conferencing has made it possible to for me to be based in the Stacks office in Taree and still talk face to face with clients all over the State.”
