“We keep to our usual stuff, more or less, only inside out. We do on stage the things that are supposed to happen off. Which is a kind of integrity, if you look on every exit being an entrance somewhere else.”
By– Tom Stoppard (Rosencrantz & Guildenstern are dead)

The journey into law…

James commenced his journey in law as an Associate to His Honour Judge Street at the Federal Circuit Court before moving into private practice. He has worked in several Sydney firms, from the CBD to Parramatta.

Whilst he has practiced in a number of areas of law, James has practiced family law since becoming a solicitor in 2015.

Experience in family law

James has practiced family law since his admission to the legal profession. He has extensive experience in all areas of family law, from property and parenting to child support, spousal maintenance and binding financial agreements.

James is also adept at advocacy and regularly appears in the Federal Circuit and Family Court on behalf of his clients. He has close relationships with several specialist family law barristers and takes pride in ensuring his clients get the best service available.

While James is a passionate advocate for his clients, he also strongly believes in cost-effective methods of resolving matters and has had great success in mediating even complex matters.

Other areas of expertise

In addition to his family law practice, James also has experience in drafting wills and in family provision litigation, where beneficiaries are seeking to contest the distribution of an estate.

Whilst he does not practice anymore, James previously practiced in both criminal law and children’s care and protection.

The passion for family law

James’ passion for family law stems from a love of working with people to solve problems. Family law matters can lead to some of the worst and darkest periods in a person’s life. James enjoys working closely with his clients to help them to find solutions and tailoring his approach to the person in front of him.

Every person and every matter is different and James takes the time to understand the person in order to solve the problem.

Our care for clients

James’ approach to his clients can be expressed as honest and driven.

Honest because James is not afraid to explain the strengths and weaknesses of a case to a client. You can be assured that James will give you the full picture and show you how to proceed.

Driven because James is relentless in advocating for his clients and pressing for the best achievable outcomes, no matter how long it takes.

Regardless of what the issue is, you can trust that James will keep working with you to get the outcomes you deserve.

Why Unified?

Unified Lawyers has quickly developed a reputation for excellence in family law. James was keen to join the growing Family Law team and mark his mark for Unified clients.

Passion outside of the law

James is a sports tragic, which is good because most of the teams he loves to support have been terrible for years!

He loves rugby league, AFL, football and the NFL. He is also a big fan of exercise, video games and spending time with his wife and family.

Other languages

Basic conversational French.
