: to make someone stronger and more confident by giving them the power or authority to control their life and claim their rights.


Our mission is to give our clients control over their family law dispute by arming them with expert advice, strategy and representation. We aim to navigate our clients through their family separation with the utmost care and attention to detail. Our focus is on achieving high quality, sensible outcomes as quickly as possible.


From your initial conference through until settlement you will receive superior, responsive service delivered calmly and compassionately.

We will listen and tailor our advice to the needs of your family.


We are trained in mediation, parenting co-ordination and alternative dispute resolution. Our focus is to resolve your dispute quickly and sensibly, without the stress and expense of litigation.

While it is our preference to use our negotiation and mediation skills to resolve your matter, we are skilled and experienced litigators. We will prepare your case diligently and represent you with dedication and tenacity.


We believe that everyone should be empowered with expert advice and options to resolve their family law dispute.

That is why your first 30-minute consultation with us is FREE.

Your first consultation

At your first appointment we will listen to your instructions and provide our legal advice on your rights, entitlements and options for settlement.
You will leave your appointment with a thorough understanding of your options, your costs and what to expect from us.

From then on and throughout our work with you, we will communicate with you regularly.
We will address your questions and concerns promptly, with sound advice and understanding.
We’ll be your voice in troubled times.

If you have received a letter from another lawyer or been served Court documents, you should provide them to us in advance so we can prepare for our appointment with you.
If you are seeing us about property or financial matters, it helps to have a list of your assets, liabilities and superannuation.
If you are seeing us about parenting or grandparenting matters, it helps us to know the names and dates of birth of your children and what their current living arrangements are.
If there are urgent circumstances, for example you suspect your ex-partner will abscond with your children or is taking steps to sell or transfer assets, you should let us know so we can commence acting immediately.
