Social justice and the environment

are important issues for our firm.

We take pride in representing individuals and organisations who are working to protect the environment, fighting against laws that are unjust and working to improve the quality of life for people in our community. We frequently take on matters that we consider to be of importance to the community at a reduced fee or on a no win, no fee basis. Our solicitors regularly volunteer their time to community and not-for-profit organisations.


I highly recommend Tony FitzGerald to guide you through family law matters. Tony was kind, caring, thoughtful and highly professional. He is enormously experienced and has seen every variation of human behaviour. At the end of it all, there are no winners in divorce, but what I did feel was that Tony’s guidance had enabled me to have integrity and clarity and those things mattered a great deal.The trial was held in early 2018 before Justice Kerr. The case was unsuccessful. An appeal was brought to the Full Court of the Federal Court in October 2018 and judgment was given in April 2019. The appeal was allowed in part and the Minister was ordered to reissue the notice so as to specify the precise method by which the fish farm was to be operated.

FitzGerald and Browne were invaluable throughout my Family Court proceedings. I found their staff to be supportive, committed and invested in my case. I highly recommend FitzGerald and Browne for any family law matters.

The service I received from Libby Saunders and all FitzGerald and Browne staff I had contact with was exemplary. Not only was Libby approachable, knowledgeable, professional and timely in all her dealings with my family law matter, she demonstrated great compassion and respect for my circumstances during a very stressful period in my life. Together we reached a great outcome. Prior to my engaging FitzGerald and Browne, I had changed legal firms due to concerns about cost blow out and had felt poorly represented. I am so glad that I chose FitzGerald and Browne, as now I can move to the next chapter of my life with peace of mind. I give my highest commendation to Libby and the FitzGerald and Browne team.
Elizabeth (New Town)
There is nothing worse than not having access to your grandchildren so I consulted FitzGerald and Browne and Libby took on my case. I was extremely pleased with the result despite having to attend court in Queensland. Libby negotiated with the other parties and we had the best outcome possible and I now have phone access to the children whenever I want and we Skype on a weekly basis as well as regular phone calls, updates and visits several times per year which we are looking forward to. Thank you to both Libby and Tony for their empathy, understanding and hard work and efforts to achieve a great outcome.

My strongest recommendation for the truly fabulous FitzGerald and Browne Lawyers and highest praise for the legal practitioner I know best, Roland Browne. Roland is a uniquely dedicated, fearless and gifted lawyer with an amazing track-record in advocacy and campaigning (e.g., for gun control), plus ground-breaking litigation.

FitzGerald and Browne Lawyers handled my late dad’s estate so it was an easy choice to engage them to do the conveyancing for the sale of his property. I found them to be professional, helpful and friendly, and most importantly empathetic as this was an emotional time. I would certainly recommend FitzGerald and Browne Lawyers if you are looking for down to earth, plain English legal advice and assistance.
Jon and Sharon (Port Huon)
We recently used FitzGerald and Browne for our conveyancing on the purchase of our property in Port Huon. We were thoroughly impressed with the level of expertise and professionalism demonstrated as well as the prompt responses to our many enquiries. We would definitely recommend FitzGerald and Browne to any persons contemplating purchasing property in Tasmania.
