Picture

Our values were not created in a majestic boardroom overlooking the city and its winding river and then force-fed to the whole team. Rather, they are the collective result of the values that each of us hold dear in our professional and personal lives. They were also developed in a lovely little spot in the Lockyer Valley in true recognition of our regional roots! Find out more about how we crafted our values here.

My Journey with Best Wilson Buckley by Max Sutton

In my second year of university, I was fortunate enough to receive the “Best Wilson Family Law Scholarship” which provided me with $5,000 to put towards my studies, along with work experience at the practice. At the time I did not know what area of law I wanted to practice in, and was optimistic of working in foreign policy or international relations. Between you and me, I was even looking at the United Nations. Family law was the furthest thing from my mind.

However, I went along to work experience in September 2014 and assisted solicitors with legal research, drafting, and also attended at Court. This experience was eye-opening and gave me a better understanding of what it is to be a solicitor within a family law context. Even at this stage, I still didn’t know what area of law I wanted to practice in, however the opportunity presented itself for me to be able to work in an administration role at Best Wilson Buckley Family Law.
