Who We Are


After many years working in the city, Lynda Babister established Babister Legal in 2009.

The law can be complicated and confusing. Lynda wanted to cut through the regular challenges facing her clients when seeking out legal advice and focused on building her practice around guiding clients through the complicated legal world in the most clear, pragmatic and inclusive way.
