The Law Firm

 Founded in 1990

Our firm was established in Petersham, New South Wales in January 1990 when the founding partner, Joseph Capogreco Senior, decided being an Associate in a private practice was not challenging enough. Joseph Senior was a litigation lawyer representing clients from all walks of life in all facets of litigation, from Local Court work to District Court and Supreme Court litigation. He has also represented many Italian companies trading in Australia.

Prior to founding Joseph G. Capogreco & Associates law firm, Joseph Senior had served in the Australian Army and Navy and had a diverse business background having run news agencies and restaurants from the age of 21 years of age, so he was quite conversant with the struggles of small business and the rewards when the business is managed appropriately.

Since 1990 the practice has taken instructions in many areas including, Family Law, Criminal Law, Business Law, Property Law including Conveyancing and Construction Law, Employment Law, Personal Injury, Motor Vehicle Accidents, Wills & Estates, Planning and Litigation.

Currently our law practice consists of three lawyers, a conveyancer and great support staff.

Our firm is proud to say that we do not need to advertise as our clients are all from word of mouth, which we believe is the best form of advertising.  We have even been providing our legal services to the new generation of many of our original clients, because time has shown they can trust us.

We enjoy what we do and care about our clients. We are good at listening and have great empathy. We will listen to you and walk you through the legal processes because we know that the first time a client experiences the legal system can be daunting. You may ask “why would I choose your firm”. Our answer is because you will receive top tier standards with family values.  You will not be shuffled from lawyer to lawyer and our fees are very competitive. All our lawyers and staff are approachable and are genuinely considerate to clients because our work is not just a job, but a chance to make things better for our clients, whatever the problem.


We guarantee we will be honest and upfront and will advise you at the start what can and cannot be done.

Our People

Joseph G. Capogreco Sr

Founder and Principal Solicitor

Joseph G. Capogreco Senior  was born in Naples and migrated to Adelaide Australia with his family when he was 7 years old. He attended Primary and High School in South Australia joining the Navy at 15 years and 6 month. Joseph Sr left Adelaide for Sydney at the age of 18 years where he has lived ever since. Joseph Sr served in the Australian Army from the age of 19 years. By 21 years of age Joseph Sr was married and had purchased a Newsagency and later an Italian restaurant. 

After going through his own divorce at the age of 27, Joseph Sr felt he could have done a much better job himself than the Family Lawyers. So at the age of 28 Joseph Sr did his HSC at Sydney TAFE. and was admitted to the University of NSW for the Arts and Law degrees.  Joseph Sr graduated as a lawyer in 1987 and worked for a firm in Liverpool.


Joseph Sr opened his own practice in Petersham in 1990, where he has been ever since.
