We are among South East Queensland’s most experienced family lawyers and mediators* and a leading Family Law Accredited Specialist*, offering Fixed Fees for consent orders, financial agreements and family mediation.
The experience of separation is extremely daunting and can be a time when uncertainty and anxiety about your future impacts on your health and well being. Whilst we can’t resolve how you are feeling about your separation, we certainly won’t make it worse.
With the partners of the firm having nearly 25 years of legal and mediation experience here are just a few of the areas we work with our clients:
Negotiating with the other party and/or their lawyers
Negotiations can be formal through correspondence;
or through personal meetings with lawyers and parties; and
By telephone, video conferencing and face to face.
Collaborative law processes where both parties are represented by lawyers specially trained in the collaborative process;
Engaging in mediation at an appropriate time;
Agreeing to engaging in private arbitration; and
As a last resort or where necessary by commencing court proceedings
How Do We Work?
We are committed to saving our clients time, money and heartache by offering a choice of methods to resolve family disputes (negotiation, mediation and collaborative law).
At your initial appointment we will explain the costs and merits of each approach and work with you to find a solution that suits both your specific needs and your budget, based on our own 25 years experience.
