Most people would recognise Margaret as a Family Lawyer, assisting clients through disputes about children and property settlements. In addition to the field of Family Law and De Facto Relationships she also works in conveyancing (for clients buying or selling properties), prepares Wills, Powers of Attorney and Probate matters.
As a small legal firm, Margaret's approach is to be accessible and responsive to each individual client's needs. She considers it to be a part of her role to assist clients in understanding the legal process as it relates to their particular circumstances so as to achieve the best possible outcomes.
Margaret is a strong believer in people having access to justice; for this reason she offers her first interview up to one hour for free. Margaret has a range of fee scales that reflect on the complexity and urgency of the case, together with the client's financial circumstances. Margaret recognises that legal fees are an important part of the decision making process for clients. She encourages discussion of these matters from the first interview.
Margaret's Blog "Breaking Up" is aimed at providing general information to the public about Family Law. The content reflects issues and questions that clients have raised with Margaret over many years. We hope you find it interesting and informative.
