Engaging a lawyer can be a daunting step.

You may be worried about their fees.  Uncertain that you will be treated as “just another case” or that they simply won’t understand all the issues that are important to you.

These feelings are normal.  In fact thinking this way is to be expected especially when so much is at stake.

We understand this.

To us, you matter.

Our principal Lisa Wagner is an accredited family law specialist and has been looking after separating couples and helping them achieve good outcomes for nearly 30 years.  Lisa and the team at Doolan Wagner understand the issues that you face.  We are aware that Manly and its surrounding areas of Balgowlah, Forestville, Collaroy and neighbouring suburbs reflect a changing demographic.  We have helped retirees deal with transition to retirement pensions.  We have assisted young couples manage their separation, the payment of private school fees for their children into the future.  We have assisted separating couples of teenage children identify appropriate parenting arrangements and secure flexible parenting plans that will work for them now and down the track.  Lisa believes in what she does and as a result you can trust that we will do for you what we say we will do.

If you reside on Sydney’s Northern Beaches or Sydney’s North Shore and are looking for a supportive, accessible and easy to understand family lawyer then we are right for you.

If you are looking to hear what you want to hear then we are probably not the right family lawyers for you.  We will not make promises that we cannot stick to.  We will however:

  1. Answer all your questions
  2. Have the time to “reality test” your options
  3. Clearly explain to you each alternative as it arises
  4. Be pro-active in securing the earliest and the best settlement for you
  5. Talk in plain English
  6. Be transparent with our charges

In brief, we commit to deliver every one of our clients a quality and professional service which is personal and real.

Our family law team is small and close knit.  Each of our family lawyers are specially trained.  They also hold degrees in associated disciplines such as psychology, economics and education, as well as their legal training.  In addition many of our lawyers either have completed a Masters Degree in Family Law or are currently undertaking Masters courses of study.  Family law is a vocation for our professional staff and not just a job.

Additionally we have dispute resolution practitioners and lawyers also trained in collaborative family law practice.  We have a breadth and depth of experience that we employ each day to benefit you.

We can quickly get to the heart of the matter and not waste your time and money on the issues that don’t count.  Located in St Leonards on Sydney’s lower north shore we are in close proximity to Sydney’s northern beaches and Sydney’s north shore.  A simple 20 minute car drive from Manly, Balgowlah and Forestville.

We offer the added benefit of anonymity.  Engaging a lawyer outside the suburb where you live or work ensures that your privacy is protected.
