We have the legal expertise to support your through all issues of Family Law.

Sometimes relationships breakdown. When these relationships become irreparable there are often considerations related property and/or children that need to be resolved. We will provide legal advice for divorce, property settlement and parenting matters, supporting you in this new transition of life events.

O’Hearn Lawyers understand it can often be a distressing time for families and our focus is to move matters along as quickly as possible to avoid further stress on family members. We have the best interests of our clients in mind and will work to the best of our ability to achieve the desired resolution, without it reaching court, including mediation. If however we do need to proceed with court appearances we are here to support you every step of the way.

Surrogacy

I highly recommend Maryanne for Family Law matters. At all times I was well informed and felt comfortable talking to her about my situation. She was extremely helpful and very understanding.

I’ve worked with Ben and the O’Hearn Lawyers team for a number of years now. They are always approachable, commercially focused and happy to think outside the square. I would recommend any business or personal client to reach out to OHL for assistance.

O’Hearn Lawyers have supported my business and myself in multiple cases over the past 6 years, from a business share sale, property sales & subdivisions, commercial contract reviews and industrial litigation. Ben O’Hearn and his team have assisted my business and me personally through some extremely difficult and technical legal matters and I would have no hesitation in recommending O’Hearn Lawyers.

Recently I was in need of legal advice and a friend referred me to Maryanne McGrath. Maryanne was very helpful in my matter and took considerable time to work through all aspects of my problem. With her advice I was able to make a decision regarding my enquiry. I feel that the decision I made was an informed one and covered all of my concerns. I found Maryanne to be very professional in her approach to me and my matter. She also took the time to listen and discuss all of my concerns. Nothing was rushed and I was given time to feel comfortable with my decision. Also during the course of our meetings, several other issues arose and we were able to address those as well. Thank you Maryanne.
