Meet Our Specialist 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.

Our specialist team of Family Lawyers comprises of Katharine Layne, Alana Di Paola, Simon Matters, and Margot Druce.

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

On the Journey to a Better Future

At Sharrock Pitman Legal, we provide assistance in all possible family law issues relating to the breakdown of relationships between married couples, de facto couples, and same sex couples.  This may include separation, divorce, property disputes, parenting arrangements, child support, spousal maintenance, or even intervention order applications, all of which are handled expertly by us.

For more information about some of these issues, please see our Family Law Brochure and our Blog Articles.

We believe that the best way to resolve family law issues is through a dispute resolution process such as negotiation or mediation. This allows you to control the outcome and, in many cases, will save you time, money, and emotional stress.

In the unfortunate event that court proceedings become necessary, our family lawyers will provide skilful advocacy and will represent you most effectively with the aim of optimising the result for your benefit, if at all possible. Throughout any court proceedings, we will continue to negotiate a resolution so as to finalise your matter as expeditiously as possible, where appropriate.

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.
