Since 2012, Springdale Legal has offered local, assured and empathetic legal services in Albany and the Great Southern.

We specialise in Wills and Probate and Succession Planning, Business Structuring, Tax, Debt Negotiation, Guarantors’ Advice Certificates, Pre- and Post-Nuptial Binding Financial Agreements, Commercial Contracts, Agreements and Leases, and other ancillary matters.

The law is a tough business, but should not primarily be about litigation. Strongly asserting your legal rights is crucial, however so is utilising our experience to find solutions without unnecessary litigation or expense. A focus is being proactive, particularly for business clients, in preventing legal problems through proper structure, risk assessment, legal knowledge and drafting.

Principal of Springdale, Adam Hornsey LLB GDLP (ANU), is local to the Great Southern. After completing schooling in Denmark, he spent significant time in commercial roles with the Federal Government in Canberra and Melbourne, as well as in legal roles in the tertiary education and non-profit sectors. He enjoys indoor cricket, mindfulness meditation, and community radio in his leisure time, and the freedom that working in a small firm offers in terms of work, client relationships, and work/life balance.

It is a personal, transparent approach, which can transcend the perceived barriers between the language of law and the non-lawyer, together with guaranteed quality, that makes the difference.


We dealt with Springdale Legal when a long-term dispute quickly escalated to a hearing in a State Tribunal. We were able to place a caveat with Supreme Court and avoid losing what we had fought to keep ourselves up to that point.

We needed to act as an attorney for an infirm relative, our commercial transfer was crucial to the welfare of family members, and Springdale Legal ensured the T’s were crossed and the I’s were dotted. Springdale Legal drafted thorough wills for myself and my husband to avoid the same issues.

Very down-to-earth and compassionate, personal and prompt service is probably the best way to put it…
