Having experienced the sunny disposition of Danielle at Shanahan Family Law I can say that anyone would be in good hands. Danielle is very understanding and shows great insight in analysing the situation and cutting to the heart of the matter. Both Danielle and Shanahan Law are very professional and respond promptly in a care manner. Very happy with my choice there.

I can highly recommend Luke and his associates for their professionalism and thoughtfulness. I really didn't know what to expect when I needed the advice and assistance of a solicitor, but Luke has been extremely patient and kind in leading me through this process.

You need a lawyer that goes beyond the law, a professional that truly cares with heart, a skilled negotiator that thinks ten steps ahead, an ally that you can fight together and trust, and an unmovable rock that remains calm in the middle of the storm. I have experiences dealing with lawyers in different fields for various situations, and Luke and his team really do stand out.

The most amazing and professional team who really understood my plight and fought for me and my daughter and won. My advice - listen to the advice. The team at Shanahan Lawyers know what they're talking about. I would not be so happy with the result I received if I didn't take their advice. Worth every cent. Thank you Shanahan 😊 🥳

Family Law Frequently Asked Questions

What Shanahan Family Law customers are asking?

To help you understand more about your circumstances Shanahan Family Law have created some of the most common questions with these FAQ’s? 

I’m not sure we would use the words ‘best Family Lawyers’ instead we think of Shanahan Family Law as an experienced firm with proven results. We don’t take your circumstances for granted, we genuinely care for every client that chooses to partner with us. We are serious when we say we care, listen, and get results. When we listen we do so through active listening, where we not only hear your words but understand the complete message being communicated. We care because we genuinely believe in supporting you find a better life through our range of family law services.

At Shanahan Family Law, where possible, we always encourage staying away from the courts. If you can mediate away from the courts, you’re likely to save yourself thousands in lawyers’ and hearing expenses and the emotional toll of it all. Sometimes it may be difficult to avoid. It is important to understand that if you have been experiencing domestic violence or communication has completely broken down between both parties, it may be in your best interest to seek legal help.

If it is for divorce, The Federal Circuit and Family Court of Australia explain it well here, as you will have to attend in some capacity. If you are experiencing a different problem, Family Relationships Australia talks more about the broader family law matters and attending court. Read more here. Following the COVID-19 pandemic, in many cases, if you are required to attend court, you will do so via a Microsoft Teams video link.
