Becoming an Accredited Family Law Specialist is formal recognition by the Queensland Law Society of legal excellence. Lawyers who acquire the Specialist Accreditation are regarded as leaders within the legal profession, and highly experienced in delivering exceptional client service.

To acquire my Specialist Accreditation, I have successfully completed an advanced, peer-reviewed, rigorous assessment program in family law, demonstrating a high level of practical skill and extensive legal knowledge in family law.

Over and above my qualifications and training as a family law solicitor, I undertake ongoing specialised professional development in family law each year. The combination of relevant expertise, experience and continuing legal education makes Accredited Specialists the best in the family law arena.

So why choose an Accredited Specialist to be your lawyer? Well, you can expect the best possible legal advice and representation, as well as the best chance of achieving a positive and desirable outcome in your legal matter.
