About FNE Lawyers


FNE lawyers was established in 2004 by Francis Nnamdi Elekwachi in the South Australian suburb of Kilkenny, and is currently located in Adelaide, South Australia.  


FNE Lawyers is a general practice law firm offering legal services in all the general areas of Civil Law; Criminal Law; Family Law; Wills & Estate; General Law; Commercial & Business Law; Migration Law; Litigation and Legal Information Products (coming soon). Our motto is: Service Begets Success!


Our clients are mostly individuals and small businesses. We also undertake legal aid work. We offer flexible payment terms and conditions for clients who, either by reason of policy or income/none cash assets, miss out on Legal Aid Funding, and would otherwise not afford legal representation on the usual market terms. 


We deliver legal information services and products that assist and support self-represented litigants to gain access to justice and equity.  We also operate a digitised paperless practice, thus helping to preserve the environment, reduce global warming and at the same time, reduce turnaround times in many areas of legal service delivery.

 Quick Facts About FNE Lawyers

The name “FNE”  is derived from the initials of the founder, Francis Nnamdi Elekwachi, who established  the law firm on 24 September 2004.

FNE Lawyers continues to investigate and implement new methods of legal service delivery to as many citizens as possible who otherwise would not afford access to justice.
