Swinburne Maddison’s long-experienced family team has empathy with the stressful reality of dealing with the breakdown of a relationship.  We will provide clients with the clear guidance and legal advice that they need to enable them to move forward, with confidence.

Our flexible services mean that separating couples can opt for a specialist lawyer to help with the issues they face and to negotiate on their behalf.  We can also offer collaborative law and mediation as an option when couples wish to maintain an amicable future relationship.  Where this is not possible clients can trust our team of experienced advocates to represent them in any Court proceedings.
