Family Law

When Experience Counts

For over 35 years our expert team of family lawyers has provided advice and support to people around Australia faced with changes to their relationship and family circumstances.

We are widely recognised in the family law community as one of Australia’s leading firms. Barry.Nilsson. was named as a 'First Tier' family law firm, the highest level for any family law firm in Queensland in the 2016, 2015 and 2014 Doyle's Guide to Family Law firms. These rankings reaffirm that the family law practices at larger commercial law firms, such as Barry.Nilsson. have been atop the Queensland family law market for a significant period of time. Due to our capabilities and experience, we represent clients from across Queensland and other states, as well as Australian expatriates residing overseas.

Partners Don Leembruggen and Scott Wedgwood were also named as Recommended Family Lawyers in Queensland with Geoff Sinclair being named as a pre-eminent lawyer in Queensland as well as being listed as a Recommended Lawyer in Australia.

We never take a ‘one size fits all’ approach, and while we need to follow certain court processes, it is our aim to tailor our approach in the most effective way possible to deliver the best outcome for your situation.
