Relationship breakdown can be a very distressing time, and we believe it is important that people in this circumstance receive expert, caring and personalised assistance. This is what our experienced family lawyers are all about.
Our lawyers have a superior knowledge and understanding of the family law as well as the policy and social science that coexists with it.
We are skilled at identifying your issues, applying the often complex family law to your matter and communicating this information to you in a straightforward, plain English manner. We take the time to listen and to understand your needs before providing practical advice.
Our approach is to try to resolve family law disputes by consent, quickly and cost effectively; however in matters where disputes are unable to be amicably resolved, our lawyers have the skills and experience to take your matter to court and to advocate strongly on your behalf.
At Hooper & Mill Family Lawyers our vision is to create a boutique family law practice, recognised as one of the best firms of family law solicitors Brisbane. Our vision is:
- To maintain the highest standards of family law knowledge and practice;
- To regard our client’s as the reason why we practice family law, and to assist them in a time of need;
- To provide a “big end of town” service at suburban rates.
Our mission statement for our clients is:
- We will provide you with supportive, expert advice, tailored to your circumstances and needs;
- We will work with you to explore the resolutions best for you, within your budget;
- We aim to mitigate as best we can the stress and difficulty of separation by achieving outcomes most likely to reduce stress, expense, unnecessary litigation and to promote working relationships moving forward;
Point of Difference
We are true specialists in our field situated in the suburbs.
Typically a suburban legal practice will dabble in several areas, “jack of all trades, and master of none”. We only do family law, we do it exceptionally well and we are passionate about what we do.
Peter Hooper has 20 years practising law, and is a Queensland Law Society accredited family law specialist, with Masters Degree in applied family law. Shaun Mill has 10 years practising law and is also a Queensland Law Society accredited family law specialist, with Masters Degree in applied family law
Our professional staff work towards family law specialist accreditation; and post graduate study in family law.
We are constantly following changes in the family law and monitoring new family law cases. Specialisation gives us the luxury of being able to focus in depth on our practice area.
The benefits to you are obvious. Why pay the same fees for services from a lawyer less skilled or experienced?
Our fees are very competitive; and in many cases our hourly rates are less expensive than many of the “general practice” firms in the suburbs.
We provide the same service as boutique city family law firms and in most cases our hourly rates are significantly less.
At Hooper & Mill Family Lawyers we conduct your matter personally with assistance from our small and dedicated team; rather than the practice in many firms of farming out your file to a junior lawyer.
For one of life’s most stressful and emotional events, don’t you want the assistance of the best divorce lawyer Brisbane and quality personal service at reasonable rates?
