What We Do
Kin Lawyers Pty Ltd specialises in family & relationship law including separation, future planning, family enterprise, wills and estates. We provide sound legal advice including consideration of practical issues, and balance empathy with pragmatism, depth of advice with clear communication. We’re upfront with our clients about what they need to do, about our services including our fees and the legal processes they may face. “Full & frank” encapsulates the way we practice law and assist our clients. We take our obligation of honesty and integrity as legal practitioners seriously. We’re avid advocates for our clients, whilst also emphasising the importance of resolution to achieve a beneficial and affordable outcome away from the courtroom.
We provide full, “big picture” advice, that considers not just legal principle but the individual circumstances of our clients and other important considerations such as cost/benefit, personal relationships and a client’s own wellbeing in pursuit of the primary goals – resolution, security and peace of mind. We have an Accredited Specialist in Family Law and Collaborative Law practitioners. More information about Specialist Accreditation can be found here and about Collaborative Practice here – and at our resources page here.
