Our Story

Best Wilson Family Law was established in 2009 by Kara Best and Reagan Wilson as Toowoomba’s first firm specialising exclusively in family law. In November 2013, Dan Buckley joined Kara and Reagan, establishing the firm of Best Wilson Buckley Family Law, with offices in Toowoomba and Brisbane.

In October 2015 BWB was acquired by the Shine Corporate Ltd group as their specialist family law practice. BWB continues to operate in the same way that we always have, with our clients and staff as the centre of all we do, with the added presence and future growth opportunities offered by Shine.

In March 2017 we opened an office in Ipswich servicing the local community in the city and surrounding areas, led by Legal Partner Amity Anderson.

We’re now also servicing the northern corridor of Brisbane with an office in North Lakes opened in March 2018.

We are the only specialist family law providers in the Toowoomba region, and along with our offices in Brisbane, Ipswich and North Lakes we are the largest specialty family law team in Queensland, assisting clients across the state and beyond.

Our firm was named as the Leading Family Law firm in the Toowoomba & Western Queensland region and as a recommended divorce and family law firm in Brisbane for three consecutive years in 2016, 2017 and 2018 by the independent Doyle’s Guide.


We work in a very personal area of law, involving the blunt intrusion into personal, family and financial relationships, at times of personal upheaval when stress and emotions run high. So, we know that our clients need support and understanding and practical advice in difficult times.

We will challenge and support you in making decisions, and taking actions, towards an outcome that may work best for your family in the years to come. This means not having a blind focus on only the legal outcome, and helping you to look at the implications of every decision, whether financial, emotional or practical.

Our team will offer resolution at every point in the spectrum, be it by informal negotiations, the collaborative model of resolution, mediation, or by litigating. Strong networks of providers will support your overall well-being, including financial and mental wellness advice.

In 2016, 2017 and 2018, the firm was recognised as the leading family law team in the Toowoomba and Darling Downs region by the Doyle’s Guide to the Australian Legal Profession. We were also named as a recommended family and divorce law firm in Brisbane for two consecutive years. This is the fourth successive year that the firm and its team have received an honour as part of the Doyle’s Guide. In 2017 we received the following commendations from the independent review:

  • Reagan Wilson was named as the only Preeminent Family Lawyer in Toowoomba and the Darling Downs;
  • Kara Best was named as a Leading Family Lawyer in Toowoomba and the Darling Downs;
  • Dan Buckley was named as a Recommended Family Lawyer in Brisbane; and
  • Andrew McCormack was named as a Recommended Family Lawyer in Toowoomba and the Darling Downs.
