Melbourne’s Trusted Family Lawyers for More Than Five Decades
We have the expertise to help you navigate the stress of family law and re-build your life.
The Clancy & Triado Difference
Our founder, Patricia Clancy AM, was a pioneer in family law in Australia and her commitment to family law was recognised with the Order of Australia.
Today, our commitment to family law continues – ten of our lawyers are accredited specialists in family law.
We advise on all aspects of family law, including financial settlements, children’s arrangements, de facto relationships, same-sex relationships, spousal maintenance and wills and estates.

Our ultimate goal is to help you resolve your family law issues and achieve the best possible settlement with your integrity intact.

We can represent you through all aspects of family law, including marriage separation and divorce, breakdown of de facto relationships, parenting and child support agreements, spousal maintenance, property settlements, and financial settlements including superannuation, trusts, wills and estates.
