We are a small cohesive team-based practice established in 1985 specialising in Family Law including parenting and maintenance disputes, as well as matters involving identification, valuation and division of property. Our lawyers and staff work together in a collaborative and cooperative manner. Where court proceedings are required we team with counsel, with whom we regularly work, to ensure appropriate strategies are developed and implemented.

We work closely with leading investigative accountants, valuers and other specialists in resolving complicated Family Law property disputes. These often involve issues of tax law, property, corporate and commercial law, estate management and family trusts.

At Michael Conley Lawyers we are able to provide assistance with complicated forensic investigations of the ownership and control of relevant assets in dispute as well as their valuation.

Parenting cases are handled professionally, yet in a compassionate manner, having regard to the best welfare interests of the client and the children.

who-are-we Our lawyers are aware how difficult it can be for parents to reach agreement in respect of the major issues concerning their children. We pride ourselves on our ability to assist you, navigate the relevant legislation and if required the Court system so as to achieve the best results possible for your children and you.

We do not have the costly overhead structures of larger firms. Michael Conley Lawyers are particularly conscious of the cost burden involved in litigation and where possible we strive to achieve the best results for our clients through negotiation and mediation.

As well as Family Law matters we represent clients in disputes relating to Wills and Estates including Probate matters, Family Provision Claims and Constructive Trust claims. Again we work closely with other professionals such as Accountants and Counsel to initially seek to mediate a resolution in the best interests of our client and if unsuccessful in this regard embark on litigation, always with the client’s best welfare interests as the goal.
