Anderson Family Lawyers
Accredited Family Law Specialists
At Anderson Family Lawyers we hold strong beliefs as to the values a law firm should possess. Namely, giving clients expert advice in plain English so that clients can make conscious decisions about their future. Lucy Padula, principal of the firm, is supported by an excellent team of staff with considerable experience in family law.
As parents ourselves, we understand that it can be difficult to attend at appointments in person. Thus, conferences can be arranged via telephone and Skye. However, we do consider it to be important to have an initial face to face conference. After hours and weekend telephone and Skype appointments can also be arranged.
