"Families are messy. Sometimes the best we can do is to remind each other that we’re related for better or for worse…and try to keep the maiming and killing to a minimum" - Rick Riordan (Percy Jackson and the Olympians)

When you need a lawyer to help you through a family crisis, you need an experienced family law specialist who can give you sound, non-judgmental, compassionate advice.

You need someone who will listen – really listen – to what you need, who recognises that your circumstances are unique to you, and who won’t treat you like just another client.

At Polson McMillan we don’t practise every type of law; we only do what we can genuinely claim to be experts in. Sally, David, Helen, and Val are all specialist family lawyers, and between us we have more than 100 years of experience in all aspects of family and relationship property law, as well as in matters relating to children.

Whether you are separating from your husband after 40 years or moving in with your girlfriend after 40 winks, we can get on and resolve your relationship property issues so that you can get on with your life. If you’re fighting the international relocation of your child, or wanting to challenge the Will of your late father, you will benefit from everything that we have learned from our experience with hundreds of clients before you, and from the sound, longstanding relationships that we have with our colleagues in the legal profession. We will roll up our sleeves and get stuck in to try and negotiate a good deal and resolve matters without going to court if that’s possible but, if your dispute does end up before a judge, you can be confident that your lawyer is a highly experienced and effective advocate in both the family and high courts.
