Who We Are

Focused Purely on Family Law

We are experienced in complex litigation in both the Family Court of Australia and the Federal Circuit Court of Australia.


We have two solicitors at our office who are Accredited by the Law Society of South Australia as Specialists in Family Law.

Extremely Professional

We pride ourselves on our professional approach to all Family Law matters.

South Australian

We are located in Walkerville which is approximately 10 minutes drive from Adelaide CBD.

What We Do

Property Matters

Our expertise and experience is in litigation relating to complex, complicated or just plain difficult cases in the Family Court system.
The practice’s major focus and substantial experience is in the area of the financial aspects of marital divorce and defacto settlements (property settlement, spousal maintenance and child support).

Children’s Matters

Several of our lawyers have substantial experience in and a long continuing interest in complex cases relating to children. We will accept instructions in select matters including cases where there are special or unusual issues such as relocation applications (either international or interstate), children of same sex relationships, gender reassignment and special needs children (but not sexual abuse cases).

Financial Agreements

Our firm can assist you with drafting a Financial Agreement to provide clarity and certainty as to what will happen with your assets in the event of a separation. These documents can be entered into by defacto couples as well as married couples and they can be entered into before, during or after the conclusion of a relationship or marriage. Drafting and advising in relation to Financial Agreements is a specialised practice and not one carried out by all Family Law firms in South Australia.


Family Law Specialists

David Burrell started the firm in 1974. We specialise and practise only in Family Law. The practice is a small, independent, specialised private client only boutique firm.
Our aim in running such a niche practice is to enable our clients to receive the personal care, attention and expertise so necessary during what is often the most difficult period of their life.
It is an exclusive and discreet personal practice providing old fashioned service and attention, coupled with up to the minute creative and individual advice.
In all cases we provide input into each other’s matters and, where necessary in large complex matters, work as a team. The practice accepts instructions only in Family Law matters and refers on all other legal work including Wills, conveyancing or estate work to firms that are experts in those fields.
