At Coleman Greig Family Lawyers we are specialists in our field and are highly regarded throughout the profession for our experience and expertise. Our clients come from around the Sydney region, and even from overseas, because of the firm’s reputation for providing the best possible results – based on our specialist advice along with our ability to resolve issues in a practical and timely manner.
Specialist Advice - critical for the best outcome
Family law is a highly specialist field of practice so it is critical to ensure you choose the right firm to represent you – no matter what your situation. By choosing an accredited specialist in family law, you can be assured that your lawyer has the knowledge and experience to look after your best interests.
At Coleman Greig we offer clients one of the most experienced and highly regarded specialist teams in the region – a team built around the reputation of one of Australia’s first Accredited Specialists in Family Law – former head of our Family Law team Amanda Parkin. The team is now led by accredited specialist Susan Warda who is well known for her breadth of expertise particularly in working with clients who have complex financial issues, such as family businesses, to consider following a relationship breakdown and those with substantial property portfolios or assets.
Each one of our lawyers and accredited specialists has a different skill-set and approach that are suited to a wide range of clients and situations, especially those circumstances involving children from the relationship. Most importantly, our family lawyers are approachable and easily accessible.
City Appointments and Overseas Clients
Many of our clients either work in, or live around, the Sydney CBD and we can easily arrange to meet with you in the city if that is more convenient. In recent years, as Australians become more mobile and move internationally for work, the Family Law Team at Coleman Greig has also helped an increasing number of clients who live overseas but have family law proceedings in Australia (click here for more information). Distance is not an issue and our international clients receive the same high quality, professional legal advice in their family law matter.
The Importance of your Initial Consultation
The first step towards resolving your situation is to attend an initial consultation with one of our Accredited Specialists to discuss your personal circumstances and determine the best possible way forward. This initial consultation is critical in identifying the key issues at stake, and the options available to you and your family.
By meeting with an Accredited Specialist, you can be assured that the advice and options you discuss at this initial stage are the most appropriate. We will explain a range alternatives including the relatively new approach of collaborative law which allows couples to resolve their issues without the intervention of the courts. You can then decide whether you would like to proceed, and the individual lawyer most suited to your situation.
To make an appointment for your initial consultation, please phone our family law team direct on 02 9895 9296.
