PHILOSOPHY

At Phillips Family Law our approach is to empower you so that you are best equipped to negotiate workable solutions for your situation, by providing the best family legal advice we can.

Issues between you and your former partner, especially in relation to child related and financial issues, can be very personal and highly emotional.

In relation to disputes concerning children, our philosophy is to advise you how to best advance the interests of your children.

Once we have given you the knowledge, as your first option we encourage you to make child related disputes a “lawyer free” zone and utilise the skills of appropriate experts such as psychologists and counsellors to reach solutions through therapy and counselling.

In property and financial disputes, our overriding objective is always to work towards practical negotiated solutions utilising negotiation and mediation with other similar minded professionals such as lawyers, accountants and financial planners. As an example, at Phillips Family Law, we will work hand in hand with your financial advisors to achieve practical tax effective solutions to financial problems.

However, we are mindful that clients want issues resolved in a timely manner. If necessary, we will take decisive direct action by way of litigation to ensure that our clients receive their appropriate entitlements as quickly and expediently as possible.

We strive to achieve optimal outcomes for our clients.
