Paul was admitted as a Solicitor in 1978 after doing his Articles with EH Tebbitt & Sons Solicitors Pitt Street Sydney. That firm was highly respected as a Conveyancing firm in the City and Metropolitan area. Mr HW Tebbitt, a partner in that firm, was for many years on the Conveyancing Committee of the Law Society. Paul received a solid grounding in Leasing and Conveyancing transactions, including the very intricate Old System Title Land ownership and would be one of the remaining few Solicitors who are expert in this Title System, which still remains relatively common in Bathurst and other rural areas.
Paul has practiced as a Solicitor in Bathurst since 1981 and became a partner at King Cain when he merged his Practice with King Cain Richardson & Gilbertson (as it was then known) in 1993.
Paul is married to Helen and they have one daughter Madilyn. He is a keen sportsman and former President of Rugby Union Cricket Club, and Captain of their First Grade Team. He is the current President of the Bathurst District Cricket Association. Paul is also a former President of the Bathurst Carillon City Tennis Club and continues to play on a regular basis. Most Saturdays you will find him either at the Golf course, or in summer, touring the various cricket grounds.
