Family break-up and separation can be a very difficult time for everyone concerned. At Maclarens Lawyers, Partner Liza Nguyen has extensive experience in family law. She has worked exclusively in family law for most of her career.

Whether you choose to follow the traditional court-based divorce process, mediation or the new collaborative family law approach that avoids going to court, Liza is able to provide expert advice and representation to help you achieve the best results possible.

If you are experiencing a family breakdown and need preliminary advice regarding your financial affairs, contact us now for a without obligation appointment to discuss your personal situation.
