Why you should choose an Accredited Specialist in Family Law

An Accredited Specialist in Family Law is a legal practitioner who has demonstrated a high level of competence and expertise in the area of family law. Accredited Specialists in Family Law have undergone additional training and passed rigorous assessments set by the Law Society.

To become an Accredited Specialist in Family Law, a lawyer must typically have several years of experience practicing mainly in family law and must also meet other requirements such as an interview, written examination and provide examples of their high standard of work.

Having an Accredited Specialist in Family Law can provide clients with assurance that they are working with a lawyer who has a high level of knowledge and experience in the area of family law, which can be especially important in complex or contentious family law matters. We often find that lawyers who do not demonstrate this level of knowledge end up costing their clients more in correspondence and poor drafting ability.

Our firm prides itself on being a leader in the field of Family Law. Our principal lawyer, Agnieszka Godden, was one of the youngest Accredited Specialists in NSW, and continues to hold this specialisation since 2015. She continues to demonstrate a commitment to Family Law legal education, and is an avid daily reader of case law, to ensure that her knowledge is up to date and at the highest level.
