James Halliday

Senior Associate | Family Law Team Leader

James is a highly experienced family lawyer. He is open and able to consult out of our Brisbane CBD, Cleveland, Capalaba and Arana Hills offices.

James’ Experience

James has over 10 years’ experience in successfully dealing with complex property and parenting matters concerning married, de facto and same-sex couples, including matters related to Binding financial agreements, spousal maintenance; and child support.

James understands that going through a divorce is one of the most difficult events a person can experience. James has a strong focus on achieving where possible negotiated settlements and believes that keeping a matter out of Court is often the best outcome for his clients so as to avoid unnecessary costs, delay and ongoing stress for clients.

Where negotiated settlements are not possible, James is well-equipped to represent clients in relation to their family law matters in both the Federal Circuit Court and Family Court.
