Most firms are obsessed with billable hours and excessive overheads. They can also be stuffy and outdated. We keep our overheads down and work efficiently using paperless files and the latest technology.
We encourage meetings by video but also have pleasant in person meeting rooms where you will be greeted with fair trade espresso coffee.

Some clients will qualify for deferred fees if they are ‘asset rich but cash poor’ meaning their legal fees will be paid for at the conclusion of their matter.
I contacted The FLP over the Christmas period due to a very high conflict custody issue. I was relived and very pleased when Shaya promptly returned my email to make arrangements for an appointment. The flexibility and accessibility of The FLP are what make them the best choice as well as the fact that Shaya is very experienced, professional and works towards achieving the best outcomes in a positive way. I cannot thank The FLP enough for their fantastic work in my matter.
Thank you so much for your service. You guys helped me with my case in a professional, friendly and caring manner. I would recommend your service to anyone who needs help with their Family Law matter. David was great, I would highly recommend him.
Thank you. I cannot say it enough. Not only has your entire team been professional, you have been friendly and willing to hold a conversation. Any issue I raised was handled immediately and I was kept informed of all communication between parties. Your team has made one of the most stressful and upsetting times in my life considerably easier. I will be recommending your team to others.
Shaya and her committed team at The Family Law Project represented me during a difficult and emotional time in my life. What I appreciated was theiravailability, attention to detail and honesty whilst always being child focused. Shaya explained in detail every part of the Family Law process and made herself available to answer any questions no matter how trivial. Shaya is responsible, professional, responsive and proactive. As a single mum of two children The FLP understood the importance of not wasting my time or money. The fact that this firm is socially responsible is a true statement on their core values. I’m so grateful for their representation.
Thank you so much for all the hard work that you have done for me. Words cannot express how much I admire your dedication on my behalf.
I would like to commend Anita Agostinelli for her calm professionalism in handling my complex property settlement. Her responsiveness was fantastic and when she said she was going to do something, she did it, consistently and on time. I found her friendly, thorough and precise despite some tight time-lines. I have no hesitation in highly recommending her service to other clients. I also recommend using the Family Law Project because they offer an up-front, fixe fee quotation which is honest and to the point. It certainly makes a very stressful situation somewhat less stressful.
The Family Law Project came to me in a time of absolute crisis. From the start Shaya was prompt, reassuring and professional. As time went on I met more of the team, all powerful and admirable fighting for what is fair. Imagine a law firm who are paperless, give to charity, affordable and highly skilled. If you are looking for more than representation then look no more.
I have provided Children’s Contact Services in several matters where The Family Law Project have provided legal representation and found their staff, especially Shaya Lewis-Dermody, to be timely, professional and highly equipped to assist clients in Family Law matters.
