James is an Accredited Family Law Specialist who has practised exclusively in relationship and divorce law for over twenty years. James joined Berry Family Law in 2007 and became an equity partner in July 2010.

An Accredited Specialist since 1997, James' experience covers the entire field of family law. He has acted for parties whose details have appeared amongst the BRW top 200. Both through operating legal partnerships and through his exposure to complex property matters, James has developed a keen understanding of balance sheets, taxation and financial documentation.  

While James now spends more time involved in property matters, he also enjoys the complexity of child related matters, particularly those involving a request for a child to relocate.

James' Reflections:
  • I've learned over the years that an advisor in divorce law must listen carefully as every client has different concerns, priorities and expectations.
  • I aim to provide pragmatic advice and options in plain English. 
  • It gives me personal satisfaction to help clients through their family law matter to a successful outcome.
