Our People - Family Law Experts


Andrew Johnston, B.A., LL.B, LP

Andrew's Reflections:
  • I believe a large part of my role as a family lawyer is to lessen the burden my clients face while navigating perhaps the most complex and emotional time of their lives.
  • I want to empower my clients with the information they need to achieve the outcome that is right for them. Each case is different, and I support my clients to take charge of their future by representing them through to a negotiated or litigated resolution of their matter.


Andrew has been working as a family lawyer since his admission to practice in 2008. He has extensive experience in a wide range of family law matters, including property settlements, parenting matters, the preparation of pre-relationship agreements and intervention orders. He is particularly passionate about representing clients in parenting matters and aims to achieve outcomes that are tailored to the interests of the children, are clear and lasting, and preserve ongoing parental relationships where possible.

Andrew received Accreditation as a Family Law Specialist in 2015. He has previously worked as an Independent Children’s Lawyer before the Federal Circuit Court, appointed to independently represent the child's interests in particularly complex parenting disputes.

Andrew strives to not only provide clients with advice in a straight-forward manner, but to do so genuinely. He takes pride in being approachable and available to his clients as they navigate the legal uncertainty of ending or entering into marriages, de facto or same-sex relationships.
