Our Dedicated
Family Law Team

Find out where you stand with FREE initial advice online.

We’re the largest team of expert family lawyers in Queensland.

Our team offers a depth and breadth of expertise that we only dreamed of being able to provide in the early years. This gives you the knowledge that you are in many sets of safe hands, as well as options for how they work with us. It also gives our current and future team a truly collaborative environment to work within each day that only a practice of our nature can.

When we began our journey in 2009 we were the only family law firm in Toowoomba. Since then we have also become a local presence in Brisbane, Ipswich and North Lakes.

In 2015 we joined the Shine Group as their specialist family law business, offering a greater presence across Australia, with a vision to become part of a national network of like-minded firms offering a local service for families wherever they are.

Our purpose is simple. We practice family law in such a way that it honours the family you have built as well as protecting your financial wellbeing and the future of your children.

Every day we meet with people at their most vulnerable, as they experience the realities of separation and divorce. It is our duty to make sure that you feel safe sharing your innermost feelings and fears at a time when you feel like you cannot share any more of yourself with anyone else. So much so that our practice is built on a set of values that gives you that safety and security, a sense of purpose and the tools for your new life pathway.
