Douglas J Millard was originally admitted as a solicitor in 1957. He practised in the Sydney CBD for several years before moving to Avalon Beach in 1966 when he commenced his law practice as a sole practitioner. Mr Millard occupied the same offices in Garden Court Arcade, Avalon Parade up until his death in December 1991.
Mr Millard was by all accounts an excellent solicitor and somewhat of a local identity in Avalon. There are many people in Avalon and in other parts of the Northern Beaches who still speak of him with great fondness and recall his sense of humour, pragmatic approach and reliable legal advice. The current lawyers continue Mr Millard’s legacy by offering the same common-sense approach and reliable legal advice to the community of Avalon and surrounding suburbs.
