Family Law Specialists

When the time comes to resolve family disputes and issues in an efficient and timely manner, we understand exactly what is required and how to get it done. Lisa Foley holds the position of Managing Director at DA Family Lawyers and has worked exclusively in family law and child protection law since her admission in 2006. A qualified collaborative law practitioner, Lisa believes that a combination of collaborative law and mediation is the best alternative to litigation.

She has a wealth of experience in parenting, international family law, property settlement, divorce, child support, child protection proceedings and financial agreements including prenuptial agreements. She has appeared in the Federal Circuit Court of Australia, The Family Court of Australia, The Children’s Court and Magistrates Courts. Lisa also has a special interest in international family law matters.

Our Director, Deborah Awyzio is a giant of the family law sector and has amassed 20 years of experience while working some of the most high-profile family law cases. She has worked on Hague Convention cases, binding child support agreements, domestic violence applications, binding financial agreements as well as acting as litigation guardian. Deborah is an Independent Children’s Lawyers which is a position that allows her to be appointed by the Court to represent the interests of children in the Federal Circuit and Family Court of Australia.

DA Family Law Court Representation

Deborah is particularly adept at attending private mediations and roundtable conferences and is able to work collaboratively with clients and their practitioners in order to resolve disputes in a cost-effective manner. However, she is also highly skilled when appearing as a solicitor advocate at trials in the Federal Circuit Court and Family Court of Australia.

Should Deborah represent you in court, you will enjoy the added benefit of having the same person who prepared your case, to represent you in proceedings to argue it. What this means is that she will be far more familiar with nuances of your case and thus the quality of your representation in the trial will be that much better. We have in the past, taken on the mantle of assisting clients who are looking to minimise their legal costs by acting in their own capacity when preparing their case – but don’t have the confidence to appear in court on their own.
