Let's talk about it

A legal situation involving you or member(s) of your family can be extremely worrying and stressful, but we’re here to help you through what can often be a legal minefield in one piece, both emotionally and financially.

So it’s important to talk to a law practice that genuinely listens to your concerns, understands your needs and has the knowledge and experience to secure the best outcome. We can tell you what you need to know and resolve the situation as quickly and cost effectively as possible.

We have also been involved in a number of significant legal cases, with successful appeals in the High Court of Australia, Full Court of the Family Court of Australia and the Court of Appeal NSW, Supreme Court NSW and District Court of NSW.
