Agency Work

Alan is able to assist your firm with agency work in regards to:

  • Conciliation conferences
  • Directions hearings


Alan understands that separation is a very difficult time and that following separation people need to know where they stand and how best to move on with their life. He tries to help people come to an early, sensible resolution. If that is not possible he will look after the running of the court case to achieve the best outcome.

He believes most things are resolvable, but that if you can’t resolve a family law issue, people need a firm advocate on their side.


Outside of work Alan is involved with his church, cycling, swimming and walking. He is a keen movie watcher.

"Alan’s credentials spoke for themselves, but after meeting him for the first time I knew I’d made the right choice... Alan’s calm, level headed demeanour and his no nonsense approach made the whole process as easy as something like this could be."
