Melbourne Family Lawyers & Accountants

Our Melbourne family lawyers are specialists in divorce, property, financial agreements, children’s matters and international family law cases.

Farrar Gesini Dunn Melbourne was the second presence for FGD specialising in family law and estates law.

Led by directors Sarah Keenan, Frank Chila and Joe Buckley, our Melbourne team are our go-to team for difficult questions of law.

The Melbournians are passionate about getting outcomes that work, and believe that families do not belong in the Courtroom. The team are experts in helping clients reach agreement but will fight hard for you in court if that is what is needed.

The team always has an eye on the big picture and works with what matters to clients. The team often runs high conflict parenting and property matters that require composure, strategic planning and the ability to not be reactive, but rather, proactive.

As a firm, we are passionate about collaborative law. Although we have honed and refined technical legal skills, we’ve seen time and time again that collaborative law is a better process that delivers better outcomes for clients no matter what the issues are or how difficult it seems. For our Melbourne team, collaborating isn’t about being soft, but it’s about being clever.

Melbourne are specialists in:

  • High conflict parenting matters
  • Child support disputes
  • High net worth individuals
  • Property division
  • International family law cases
  • Binding Financial Agreements (BFA / prenups)
  • Alternative dispute resolution
