We represent clients from all backgrounds and all types of relationships, including married, de facto, same-sex, and queer.

MDW’s Melbourne family law team supports our Mornington family lawyers. With more than 45 years of combined family law experience, we understand how to achieve excellent results for our clients. We also understand which allied professional services to engage when other expertise is needed, for example, accountants, financial planners, mortgage brokers, psychologists, and counsellors. Often, such professionals offer critical building blocks in family law matters.

Part of our success is due to support from Accredited Specialist family lawyers. Accredited Specialists have completed a challenging course of study to sharpen their family law skills. The qualification recognises the high level of training these lawyers bring to their work, and the support they offer their family law colleagues throughout all MDW offices.

Our family law team members have been recognised in Doyle’s Guide for several years. Doyles Guide is an independent directory. It uses surveys and feedback from the legal community to rank the most outstanding lawyers and legal teams in Australia. We are proud of this ongoing recognition, as it reflects our family law services.
