Why a Family Law Professional?


As a specialist family law firm we are able to bring a professional edge, while having empathy for our clients and an understanding of the associated stresses of family law issues. We blend this edge with a friendly voice. Our family lawyers work together as a tight professional team to help clients through difficult times.

Many firms of lawyers attempt to practise in a number of areas of law, but Berry Family Law has consciously chosen not to do that. We believe that as the law has become more complex, the only way a client can be confident that their lawyer is up to date with the latest changes and practices is for the lawyer to specialise in one area of law, have a proven record of ongoing professional development, and recognition by their peers.


What does it mean to be a Family Law Specialist?


Only the best lawyers in their field of expertise become Law Institute Accredited Specialists.

Accredited Specialists must have at least five years full time legal practice experience, have at least three years experience in their area of specialisation, and maintain a high degree of professional development in their area of specialisation.

  • All Specialists must pass a comprehensive examination process, testing technical knowledge, writing and practical advocacy skills. This examination process is developed and assessed by industry experts.
  • Specialists need to apply for re-accreditation every three years.
