Our practice has a strong commitment to family law and, through Andrew Warren, is the only firm on the far south coast with a Law Society of NSW Specialist Accreditation in family law.
If you need a family lawyer, you need someone who is going to take your side, listen to your concerns and act upon them. You are invited to make an appointment and experience the difference a competent, responsive and practical lawyer can make to your situation.
We know that family law clients are in the middle of one of the most stressful events in their lives. We understand that clients want a lawyer who listens, is responsive, understands, and gives easy to understand and practical advice.
Our skills and resources enable us to conduct the overwhelming majority of family law cases in-house, rather than duplicating costs and causing delays by briefing expensive counsel.
The firm also offers clients a number of flexible fee arrangements as we understand that family law clients often have difficulties in this regard. Talk to us for an understanding and helpful solution if this is a problem for you.
Please feel free to download a newspaper article or fact sheet that may help you understand your family law matter or make an appointment or email us to discuss the matter further.
