Our Kara Best has been named as a Finalist in the Family Law section of the Lawyers Weekly Partner of the Year Awards for 2016, and we couldn’t be more proud.

Kara is a founding partner of Best Wilson Buckley Family Law along with Reagan Wilson, and in 2009 they delivered on a vision to establish the first specialist family law practice in Toowoomba. Kara and Reagan were then joined by Dan Buckley in 2013 with an expansion into Brisbane.

While the vision has grown and developed over the years, dedication and follow through towards achieving it have not. These Awards recognise legal partners that excel in their chosen field of practice, have successfully contributed to the growth and financial performance, and culture and strategy of their firm and area of law.

“The whole team at BWB is extremely proud of Kara, and as always are in awe of her ability and amazing capacity to provide superior family law advice as well as playing a pivotal role in managing the firm’s business operations,”

Since her admission to practice law in 2001 Kara has practised exclusively in family, and remains an advocate and mentor for younger lawyers in the niche field of family law. Kara is an Accredited Family Law Solicitor and involved in the development of this program with the Queensland Law Society; as well as being a contributing member to the University of Southern Queensland’s Faculty of Law Advisory Committee.

Kara’s intention is to achieve the most optimal outcome for every client, be it from a legal, financial or emotional perspective. She is passionate about the resolution of conflict at the earliest opportunity on the most mutually beneficial terms, and embraces Collaborative Practice. From Kara’s perspective this optimises the outcome for both parties and their children should same be involved, an outcome which should, in her view, be the goal of all practitioners in this area.

“While this year has raced by already, it has been marked by great achievements for BWB. Firstly, we were named as the Leading Family Law firm on the Darling Downs, with Kara and Reagan recognised as the only Preeminent Family Lawyers in the region, and Dan Buckley listed as a Recommended Family Lawyer in Brisbane.” said Practice Manager Jennifer Ryder.

The Lawyers Weekly Partner of the Year Awards will be presented at a ceremony in Sydney on April 28.
