About Us

When experience counts


For over 35 years our family law team has provided advice and support to clients faced with changes to their relationship and family circumstances. Our large team of family law specialists and in-house counsel have led to Barry.Nilsson. becoming widely recognised in the family law community as one of Australia’s leading firms. Due to our capabilities and experience, we represent clients from across Queensland and other states, as well as Australian expatriates residing overseas.

When you entrust your family law matter to Barry.Nilsson. you can be assured that we will take full account of your particular circumstances and wishes. We never take a ‘one size fits all’ approach, and while we need to follow certain processes, it is our desire to tailor our approach in the most effective way possible to deliver the best outcome for your situation.
