Meet Our Family Law Team

We understand that the breakdown of a relationship can be one of the most stressful and difficult times of your life, so it is extremely important to have the right people supporting you through it.

We have an Accredited Specialist in Family Law, Ath Balaskas.

She will care for you if you are caught up in a family crisis. Where necessary, she will engage in rigorous and passionate representation of you in the challenging context of your family law dispute.

Aside from the emotional and personal difficulties that can be involved with a relationship breakdown, it can also have a significant impact on the financial wellbeing of those involved.  Shared assets, such as a business or other property, are often contentious elements in any Family Law settlement and need to be carefully considered.  That’s why it is important to have experts in Family Law, Commercial Law and Property Law on your side.

Free no obligation 15 minute phone consultation

Contact our Accredited Specialist Family Law team today on 1300 205 506 for a free 15 minute initial phone consultation.

Fixed Fees for Certainty

We know that every dollar counts and so we will agree with you up front on a fixed price for your legal work. In this way, you will not be charged for how long it takes us to do your work. Instead, you are charged for our expertise, knowledge and skills and for the benefit or outcome you will receive. You will have certainty, stage by stage, about what you will need to pay. Accordingly, you will not get any surprises when we send you an invoice.

Meet Our Team of Litigation Lawyers

We offer you expertise in commercial litigation and we handle all matters before any court or tribunal. Our law practice has Accredited Specialists in Commercial Law and Commercial Litigation, accredited by the Law Institute of Victoria. As a boutique, commercial law practice, our primary, specialised focus is on caring for people in business and providing effective solutions to their vast array of legal needs.

Our litigation lawyers are Simon Matters, Lynda Lim and Nicola Voss.

Commercial Litigation Services

Disputes can be as diverse as personal injury claims, police and traffic prosecutions, domestic building disputes, anti-discrimination complaints, planning and environment matters, tenancy disputes, contract disputes, motor vehicle collisions, debt recovery matters and the like.

In today’s economic climate, debt recovery processes should not be delayed. The collection process should be commenced immediately after your trading terms have been exceeded.

Concerning all litigation, you will find us to be results-driven, always striving for successful outcomes. Our lawyers are effective negotiators and seek to minimise the worry and expense of litigation by bringing matters to mediation sooner rather than later. However, if a dispute does need to be heard before a court or tribunal, then we will provide you with rigorous representation, either having one of our own lawyers appear or, where appropriate, briefing barristers to appear (being lawyers who are in court all day, every day).

We also know that every dollar counts, so we will agree with you up front on a fixed price for your legal work. In this way, you will not be charged for how long it takes us to do your work. Instead, you are charged for our expertise, knowledge and skills and for the benefit or outcome you will receive. You will have certainty stage by stage about what you will need to pay. Accordingly, you will not get any surprises when we send you an invoice.
