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.

Terminating Employment

As Employment Lawyers, common questions we are asked relate to terminating an employee. There are many associated topics such as:

Our team have written a number of articles to assist you in navigating this complex area. Some of the articles are linked above, and there are many more in our blog. Even with this information, we still strongly recommend that you seek professional advice prior to dismissing an employee. Every employee, workplace and dismissal is different. We can help navigate you through the often murky waters of this area of law to ensure the risk of an unfair dismissal claim is mitigated, as much as possible.

"My entire experience with Sharrock Pitman Legal was fantastic from beginning to end. I was able to speak with a lawyer as soon as I called, which is unusual in most firms! I spoke with and subsequently met with my lawyer regarding a sensitive employment relations issue, which still causes me some distress. My lawyer handled my situation with kindness, empathy and professionalism. He gave me excellent legal advice and was keen to ensure my psychological well being. I would recommend the firm to anyone seeking professional legal advice with heart."
—Margaret L
"My Lawyer was very prompt in getting to my email enquiry. He quickly understood my needs, provided sound advice and a document that allowed me to move forward with confidence and efficiency."
—Ashley Williams
“Just a comment on how impressed I was with the outstanding service I received when my lawyer assisted me with my employment law issue. My lawyer helped me immediately and I cannot comment enough on the professionalism demonstrated.”
"Overall an extremely pleasant process, not at all what I expected - then I hardly ever have a need for good lawyers, but you made me feel comfortable and I enjoyed the discussions - open, honest and frank with a healthy level of humour which I appreciated."
—James Coulter
