RIP Sailesh Rajan

Reasonable Grounds today pays tribute to Aboriginal Legal Service solicitor, Sailesh Rajan, who  passed away this morning, after a thankfully short battle with cancer. He was only 29.

Sailesh arrived in the Redfern office of the ALS in 2006 as a PLT volunteer and quickly rose through the ranks as a solicitor, first in Western New South Wales, and later in Parramatta, before finally settling in Redfern. 

By 2011, he had ascended to being a senior solicitor of the Service, routinely appearing in summary hearings and committals, as well as District Court sentences and appeals. 

RG remembers him for his dedication, generosity, intelligence and endless curiosity.

He will be very sadly missed. Our sincere condolences go to his family, friends and colleagues at the ALS.
