James Naughton, Rice Naughton

Doyles Guide

The evidence of James' 20 years of experience is the way in which he carries out his work – considered and intended to persuade. He has been a Queensland Law Society Accredited Family Law Specialist since 1999.

James brings commercial nous to his client's property and financial family law matters and worldliness and positivity to his client's parenting issues.  He believes much family law work involves the imposition of order upon chaos.

James says that strangely enough, given the gravity of family law issues, his role is best described by a comedian, Jerry Seinfeld:  "To me, a lawyer is basically the person that knows the rules of the country.  We're all throwing the dice, playing the game, moving our pieces around the board, but if there is a problem the lawyer is the only person who has read the inside of the top of the box."
