Our firm practises primarily in family law. The principal of our firm is Sophie Song, an experienced Law Institute of Victoria Accredited Specialist in Family Law.


Family law is not like other areas of law – that’s because it affects the things you care about most: your children, your home, and your future.

We understand that contacting a lawyer can be a daunting prospect. We are approachable, non-judgemental, and we will listen to your story with an open mind.

We aim to make the confusing and emotional legal process as straightforward and stress-free as possible. We will identify the legal pathways available to you, shine a light on the potential pitfalls, design strategies to achieve your goals, and help you to execute those strategies so you can move forward with assurance and confidence. We provide practical solutions to your legal problems.

For those exiting a relationship, we will help you to untangle the legal ties you have with your spouse. We aim to improve, not worsen, the relationship you have with your ex-spouse by focussing on the big picture for your family. We always encourage our clients to put their children first.

For those entering into a relationship, we will help you protect the assets you have worked hard to accumulate.

For parents who wish to gift or loan money to their adult children, we will help you protect your family wealth.
