Initial Consultation

This consultation provides our clients with advice to rights and responsibilities in Family Law. This provides an opportunity to ask all those questions that are raised when faced with the situation of a separation. We provide this advice in as simple terms as possible so that clients do not get confused with complicated legal terms. It is important to us that clients understand the advice we are providing them with so that they can make the most informed choices.

Separation and Divorce

Collaborative Law

Collaborative law is a reasonably new concept to be introduced to Australia. It is widely used in the United States and in Europe as a successful way to resolve the dispute. Our Senior Consultant is a qualified Collaborative Lawyer, for further information or to book an appointment, please either give us a call or use the contact us form.


Divorce renders any Will that you have voice so it is imperative for clients to have a new
Will drafted when separation occurs. Our Jo Lohrey, Solicitor, can assist you with
drafting a new Will. To have a consultation with Jo please give us a call or use our
