      Our History

      CKL Lawyers

      We first opened our practice in Balaclava in 1987 as Cyngler & Co, and rapidly grew. 

      In 2004, we merged with Kaye Levy & Co (established a decade earlier in 1977), and with a bigger team we rebranded as Cyngler Kaye Levy Lawyers and moved to Caulfield. 

      Since then we have grown from strength to strength with a loyal and happy clientbase. Today we are located in Caulfield North and our firm is known as CKL Lawyers in keeping with our tradition, but creating a modern, clear and simple name.

      “Thank you again for all the help you have provided us with this legal issue, we have greatly appreciated all the help Jack and the team have given us.”

      – PM

      Jack, I would like to thank you and your staff for your assistance, kindness and understanding. Your work has been excellent. I could not have hoped for a better outcome.

      – CR

      “Finally, thank you so much for all your support, and being so generous with your time. Our dad’s quite an honest person, and likes to think the best of everyone, so he often can’t see when he’s being exploited. After today’s conversation with you, we think he’s come to realise that he did not deserve the treatment he received. He’s also been quite uneasy lately, but he’ll be resting a lot easier tonight, we’re sure. 

      Truly, thank you so much – we are grateful beyond words!”
      – S & I.P.

      “Thanks Jack – this is superb work…. Please go ahead and draft the relevant legal papers… Once again, we are elated.”

A time for me, which was personally upsetting and difficult to deal with, but you not only made it possible you made some parts of it fun too. You truly are an awesome man and lawyer.”


      “Just a brief email to thank you for your assistance in finalising mums estate. I appreciate your professional and thorough service and the support your firm has given mum in the past.”


      “Thank you so much for your kind, generous and very efficient help in resolving our dispute with **** . I think you saved what was left of our sanity (and restored our faith in lawyers!).”


      “Thank you for your assistance. It has been invaluable”

       “Thanks for helping me in such a short time-frame… having received great advice about my rights, I felt confident signing the agreement.”


      “I have a quiet relief for the moment to simply know that the ball is in someone else’s court for a change and to be awaiting their response…thanks Jack.”
