Ross Whitelaw started the Whitelaw McDonald practice in 1987, alongside John McDonald. His clients benefit from his 50 years of legal experience and expertise, winning hundreds of thousands of dollars for his many clients. 

His passion for the law comes from caring for his clients, and he believes this is the strength of Whitelaw McDonald. He helps clients through any commercial law situations, wills and estates, estate and business succession planning, conveyancing, leasing and mediation. Between 2001 and 2010 Ross was an arbitrator with the NSW Workers Compensation Commission, and became a Notary Public in 2000.

Ross has worked as a sole practitioner, as well as at other law practices, before forming Whitelaw McDonald & Associates in 1987 and making it the firm it is today. 

Off the clock, Ross can often be found enjoying listening to the works of Richard Wagner.
