Tim Leishman

“I’ve always been passionate about family law, and have worked exclusively in this area during my time practising as a solicitor.

I enjoy helping people through what can be highly emotional and distressing circumstances, and firmly believe in family law’s principles of fairness and putting the needs of children first.  

I’m also all about equal access and representing those engaged in the family law process – whether in an alternative dispute resolution or litigation. Plus, I’m a strong advocate, providing accurate and genuine advice and working hard to advance my clients’ interests.

I always keep people in the loop with regular, transparent communication. I’m not here to dictate. My job is to provide timely, accurate advice about the merits and potential issues in a matter to help resolve disputes. I hope I’m seen as approachable and confident.

My experience in family law includes complex parenting and property matters, family violence, surrogacy and same-sex de-facto parenting matters, and divorce.”
