Eustacia Yates | Special Counsel

Since graduating in 2002 Eustacia has practiced almost exclusively in family law. She has also spent time working outside the law in communications and volunteer roles. She has a broad range of experience in both parenting and property matters, and is well-equipped to guide you through the maze of legal processes  towards resolution of your matter. Eustacia has worked in law firms in Brisbane, Melbourne, and Washington D.C., USA and can assist you with –

  • Parenting arrangements
  • Mediation and Conciliation Conferences
  • Family Dispute Resolution
  • Complex property settlements
  • De facto relationships
  • Child Support
  • Binding Financial Agreements
  • Domestic Violence

Eustacia’s passion is to help clients move through family separation with as much peace as possible and with their integrity intact. Separation can be a confusing and challenging time, and it’s Eustacia’s conviction that the legal issues that arise from separation are only one part of the puzzle for people going through separation and divorce. As a skilled lawyer, Eustacia well understands that the best outcomes for clients are usually those which do not involve a long expensive Court process. Instead, her approach is practical, collaborative, and supports the holistic needs of clients as they experience all of the turmoil and complexity that goes with separation. Where possible and appropriate, Eustacia will assist clients to resolve their family law matter using mediation, negotiation, and settlement conferences, so that they can retain control over the outcome of their matter. If a matter proceeds to Court, clients have found Eustacia to be a skilled and thorough advocate.
