About Us

Our Experience

Our Experience

The advice and representation that we offer draws on a wealth of legal knowledge and practical experience, across all parts of the legal process.

In Australian Family Law, cases begin with mediation and negotiation, and only proceed to court if an agreement cannot be reached. We can help clients at any stage of the process, for as long or as far as a case needs to go to find a suitable resolution.

We understand that in emotional and difficult situations, it is not always possible to reach an agreement. If a case does need to proceed to Court, our team can offer skilled Family Law advocacy.

The Courts in which our team advocates are:

  • The Federal Circuit and Family Court of Australia
  • the District Court of NSW
  • the Local Court of NSW

We can represent our clients in any combination of these Courts, in any region or state – wherever our clients need us to go.

As well as our practical experience, over many years our solicitors have been recognised for their expertise and invited to serve a number of government and community organisations, including Legal Aid New South Wales and the Department of Family and Community Services.

This means we have unique insights into how Family Law really works and can apply all the complex details of the law clearly to your case.

Our solicitors are also able to provide a strong network of support services for clients who need additional help. We have long-standing links with healthcare professionals, surveyors and valuers, financial advisers and community services.

Our Philosophy

Our Community

Our Community

Clients now come to us for advice from all over Sydney.  

As well as being open to enquiries from anyone in the region, our team also actively engages with community services and organisations who work with families, providing advice and assistance. Over the years we have formed strong relationships with clients and professionals from, refuges, domestic violence clinics, government funded family support services, youth assistance and health services. We are proud to help and to serve the area where we live and work.

Our solicitors have a reputation for their willingness to go above and beyond ordinary legal work. We provide assistance to members of our community through “drop-in” advice clinics and seminars for community workers. Our family lawyers find this work challenging and fulfilling and we look forward to continuing to assist our community in this important way.

We are always open to expressions of interest from community organisations and family support services. If you work within the community and would like to discuss the assistance the team at Mahony Family Lawyers can provide, please do not hesitate to contact us by telephone on 02 9018 9408 or by email at info@mahonylawyers.com.au.

Our Outreach Work

For over five years our family lawyers have been providing assistance to clients based in Western Sydney and the Sutherland Shire area through our “drop-in” advice clinics. We are proud to have partnered with four government funded community organisations to offer family law advice.

The “drop-in” advice clinics enable members of the community to access free advice in relation to a range of family law matters, such as, children’s issues and parenting arrangements, property settlement, separation, divorce, spousal maintenance, Court applications and mediations. Our family lawyers assist by providing guidance on a pathway to resolve the legal dispute, whether it be by, Court representation, lawyer-assisted negotiations, mediation or formalising a pre-existing parenting agreement in the form of Consent Orders or a Parenting Plan.

Our family lawyers find our community outreach work to be some of the most rewarding work undertaken at Mahony Family Lawyers. We take pride in approaching each advice session with compassionate and an eagerness to find a practical way to resolve the client’s legal problem.
