Our Approach

Guidance  Integrity  Compassion


We listen.  We find out what is important to you.

Each family is unique and each separation is different. There is no ‘one size fits all’ in family law.  That’s why we take the time to listen, to find out what is important to you and what you want to achieve for your financial future and the care of your children. As a result, we endeavor to obtain results which are tailored to your particular situation and your goals.  Our staff are committed to personalised care and attention to all of our clients.

We explain how it works in language you can understand

We know its frightening when the future is not clear, when you don’t have answers to important questions and when you “don’t know what you don’t know”. We explain the law in everyday terms so you know your rights, entitlements and options and we will assist you to find the answers to your questions.   Whether negotiating or in court, we explain every step of the process so you always understand what is happening and what comes next.

We don’t make promises we can’t keep and we make sure your expectations are realistic.

We aim for timely, cost effective resolutions

Our goal is to achieve the best outcome for you, in the shortest amount of time and in a way that minimises legal costs. We understand that it is important for both you and your children that you move on with your life as smoothly and quickly as possible.

We offer practical advice and options

There are many different ways to resolve family law disputes. Our family lawyers explain all of your options in a practical, down-to-earth way. We give you guidance and direction about the best option to achieve your goals and pride ourselves on innovative solutions in tricky situations.

We are committed to negotiation and mediation as the first method of resolution.  Of course, we will not shy away from an urgent court application if circumstances require it.

If necessary, we can point you in the right direction of other caring professionals who may also assist at this time – accountants, financial advisors, real estate agents and counsellors.   We are committed to empowering you with the information you need to take control and make informed decisions.
