COVID-19 Response

FitzGerald and Browne Lawyers is still open and currently operating without face to face meetings to the greatest extent possible.

Phone and other electronic means of communication are preferred. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any queries. 

We’re on your side.   

When a relationship breaks down all parties have legal rights that need to be protected – adults and children alike. Often emotions are high and pressure-cooker situations can arise. Our approach is non-confrontational and collaborative where possible. We aim to help our clients to reach amicable agreements and settlements with minimum fuss or, if necessary, protective Court orders.

Protecting your rights and entitlements, decisions concerning children, child maintenance and spousal maintenance are areas you will need ethical legal advice you can trust.

Our family law team comprises Tony FitzGerald, who has been specialising in family law for over 30 years, Libby Saunders and Sarah Cullen. We can assist with all aspects of family law matters including financial/property settlements, children’s matters, child support agreements and applications for family violence orders.

Our services are completely confidential and your safety and peace of mind are paramount.

If you are unsure of your rights or need to take action, contact us now.
