Will I need a barrister?

Alex Wearne is our resident special counsel.  She will appear, (instructed by your solicitor) in the majority of court events rather than us having to instruct external barristers.

The advantage to you is that Alex will be a part of your strategic legal team from the very beginning of your matter, ensuring sound knowledge of your case and consistency of representation in Court.  In line with our commitment to best value and certainty in relation to your legal fees for Court matters, Alex’s hourly and daily rate are less than what you would normally expect to pay for external counsel.

There may be occasions when we need to brief external barristers.

We work with a number of expert family law specialists from barristers’ chambers in NSW and interstate.  In an endeavour to ensure best outcomes for you and your family, we select counsel by ensuring that their relevant expertise and skills match the particular circumstances of your case.
