Prompt, Efficient Response

We understand family matters can be time-sensitive. As a trusted family law firm in Melbourne, we pride ourselves on being accessible and responsive to all our client’s calls and emails.

Initial Fixed Cost Consultations

Our team is dedicated to providing transparent and affordable fees, so clients know what the family law process will look like ahead of time.


In a case where the husband’s business was suspiciously underperforming after separation, forensic discovery and investigation led us to find a shadow business he had set up in another person’s name, with the same clients isolating in the same space. This then led to serious adverse consequences against the non-disclosing party and a much higher settlement for our client.


Professionalism, Responsive and Compassionate
