At Neilan Stramandinoli Family Law, we pride ourselves in our commitment to excellence, proven track record and strong expertise in family law. We understand how emotional and difficult family law can be, which is why we exercise a blend of our skills, compassion and emotional intelligence to best guide you through these difficult times so you can achieve your best possible outcome.
We believe that our clients deserve to be treated with respect and dignity. We know that seeing a family law or divorce lawyer is not what people generally want to do but need to do given their circumstances at a particular point in their lives.
We give you peace of mind that your legal matter is in the hands of lawyers who are passionate about family law, love what they do and, above all, provide an excellent and specialised service to their clients and provide a range of solutions to their problems.
We will deal with the legal and technical issues that arise in your family law matter so that you can focus on looking after yourself and what matters most in your life. We will provide you with clear advice about your legal options and strategies to best help your situation. We will give you honest risk analysis and address expectations. Our advice will enable you to ensure that you can make informed decisions about your matter at each step of the way.
We have already helped many people resolve their family law legal situations and we want to help you. Regardless of your circumstances, we promise to provide you with sophisticated, professional and compassionate representation.
We will assist you to develop solutions to your problems, whether it be through a preferred out of Court solution or, as a last result, by providing you with fierce and strong representation in Court. We are strong and smart negotiators and litigators with many years of experience in the family law courts and in high stakes family law litigation. We are grounded and practical, and will always advocate for clients to find ways to resolve their matter without the need of litigation.
What to Expect
We know that there is no “one size fits all” family law matter. We also know it is essential to find family lawyers that have the expertise and skill necessary to apply to your unique situation. Family law is complex and if not done properly, your rights can be significantly prejudiced and parenting arrangements may be compromised. Fees are variable but we strive to give clients certainty with respect to their fees and we offer a matrix of fee options to suit individual circumstances. When we give an estimate or quote, we stick to it. If additional work is required, we will always discuss this with our clients first and reach agreement before progressing.
We will try to understand your problem, identify any initial work involved and discuss the fee.
