About Us

Anderson Family Lawyers is a specialist family law firm established by Lucy Padula.

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.

Anderson Family Lawyers

Anderson Family Lawyers is a specialist family law firm established by Lucy Padula. Lucy is dedicated to assisting clients in resolving family law issues with dignity. The breakdown of a relationship is an extremely difficult time, particularly where there are children involved. We understand that there are numerous considerations in addition to legal factors which may impact your needs and goals. We can assist you in creating solutions to meet the needs of your family. This includes financial settlement and making appropriate care arrangements for your children, which are in their best interests. We can also help you to address financial and other matters at the commencement of a relationship. As a busy parent Lucy understands that it can be difficult to attend appointments during business hours and/or in person and thus will arrange phone conferences outside business hours where necessary.
