Achieving the Best Outcomes

Caldwell Martin Cox is proud of its Family Law Team which offers clients the choice of male and female solicitors all with solid family law experience and excellent reputations. Family law is a delicate and personal area of law, and the family law team at Caldwell Martin Cox is committed to achieving the best outcomes for our clients and their children.

Caldwell Martin Cox offers an initial consultation with a family law solicitor at a reduced rate to ensure you receive advice specific to your situation. While some firms offer a “free initial consultation” this is usually a short meeting which only provides you with basic information about the family law system. Our first meeting lasts about an hour and gives you legal advice and strategies tailored specifically to you and your situation.

Caldwell Martin Cox’s Family Law Team is headed by Accredited Specialist Bill McGookin  who has been involved in family law matters since beginning his career in 1985. With a personal philosophy focused on helping his clients manage the difficulties of relationship breakdown in a considerate and compassionate manner, Bill believes that “family law is emotional enough without the lawyers following suit”. He is proud that the overwhelming majority of his matters are resolved without court determination and in as cost-effective a manner as possible. He also has the knowledge and ability to prepare and present cases in a strong and forceful manner if litigation is the only option.

When Should I see a Family Law Solicitor?

We recommend that people seek legal advice as soon as they separate or if they are contemplating separating. Getting advice early ensures that you handle your separation in the best possible way. With the right advice, you will avoid making many of the mistakes we see people make that impact on the future of their negotiations and impact on their time with their children.
