Alan has worked in family law for over 20 years. He has been an Accredited Specialist in Family Law since 1997. In that time he has handled hundreds of cases dealing with financial issues (property settlement, spousal maintenance, child support) and parenting issues. He looks after people who have been married or in de facto relationships. Alan understands that separation is a very difficult time and that following separation people need to know where they stand and how best to move on with their life. He tries to help people come to an early, sensible resolution. If that is not possible he will look after the running of the court case to achieve the best outcome. Over the years Alan has given many seminars, both to the public and to accountants.

Outside of work Alan is involved with his church, cricket and trying to keep fit.
