We are focused on helping you achieve balance. Family Law in our experience achieves better outcomes when practiced in a more conciliatory and less adversarial manner than other areas of law. We know that ongoing conflict between parties during this difficult time can result in unnecessarily large legal bills, as well as delay you (and your children) being able to move on with your life. A conciliatory approach is even more vital where children are involved and the parties may need to co-parent together in the future. That being said, have no doubt that our lawyers are more than capable to advocate robustly on your behalf if the matter is, or becomes conflictual with the other party.
