Daniel joined us in 2018 after working in a boutique Canberra family law firm. He moved across to family law after spending two years working in politics.
Daniel is a lawyer in our family law team and has experience across a broad range of areas within this field. He specialises in complex disputes between married and de facto/same-sex partners, including negotiated property settlements, parenting disputes, relocation matters, child support matters and family/domestic violence matters.
Daniel is an advocate for alternate dispute resolution and has experience with collaborative practice, including our “Settle by Sunday”collaborative model. However, Daniel is also experienced in and has assisted with all stages of family law litigation in cases where there is no alternate means for resolving disputes.
Daniel recognises the importance of effective communication in family law and prides himself on being able to facilitate relationships with clients and colleagues alike.
Daniel grew up in Port Macquarie and was an avid swimmer for over ten years. Although he has since hung up his goggles, he still likes to stay active and is a regular at ANU gym.
On the weekends he enjoys bar hopping in the city or a classic millennial Sunday brunch. He also has a soft spot for trashy pop music or reality TV when he needs to relax.
Daniel is also a member of the Out for Australia LGBT mentoring initiative and regularly mentors young LGBT professionals interested in the legal industry. He recognises the importance of creating a legal industry that reflects the diversity of the clients it advocates for and represents.
