I like the fact that family law is about people, which means you can build a relationship with your client.

Special Counsel

Allison Caputo is Special Counsel in our family law team, having joined Barry.Nilsson.’s Brisbane office as a lawyer in 2014. 

"I enjoy building relationships with my clients and guiding them through what can be a very challenging time in their lives."

Allison specialises in all aspects of family law encompassing:

  • Complex parenting and property disputes
  • Financial support matters including spousal maintenance and child support
  • Domestic violence

"No two matters are the same. Every client brings with them a unique history and that means that each matter must be approached individually.  I have had experience in assisting clients through complex parenting and property disputes. Practising in family law allows me to meet and work with people from all walks of life and I enjoy the process of assisting them to find a resolution so they can move on to the next chapter in their lives."
