Parke Lawyers has been named Best Family Law Firm in Australia in the 2018 APAC Legal Awards program.

The awards are conducted by the APAC Insider magazine, which covers business news in the Asia Pacific (APAC) region.

Managing director Mr Jim Parke said the award is “recognition of the outstanding work our family law team does to ensure our clients are provided the best possible environment to regroup their lives and move forward.”

Parke Lawyers is a leading, national boutique law firm with a team of much-respected lawyers who have astute, commercial understanding and industry knowledge to provide diligent advice to separating couples.

The staff’s professional and confidential approach offers common sense and practical solutions. Parke Lawyers is large enough to provide expert advice, yet small enough to maintain a personal relationship with all clients.

Parke Lawyers has based its successful legal advice delivery and practice on the four pillars of expertise, knowledge, understanding and specialisation.

Mr Parke says, “We show our commitment to our clients by ensuring we understand their problem quickly and thoroughly and proceed to use our best resources to ensure our clients’ matters are resolved to exceed their expectations.

“In order for us to do this, we have to ensure we are continually abreast of all changes in the law and technology that gives us the tools to conduct our work to the highest order.

“In family law, the ability to bring separated couples to mediation and navigate a workable way forward for the couple, their children, finances and property settlement requires strict control of constantly moving parts,” Mr Parke says.

Parke Lawyers is a quality assured firm holding global certification in Quality, Environment and Occupational Health & Safety. Meeting these strict criteria in work delivery gives clients every confidence their matters are being handled to the highest levels of integrity and proficiency.

The staff at Parke Lawyers are active members of their communities and the firm is a strong supporter of community groups and events.

Among the community groups the firm supports are Rotary, Strike Out Stroke, community Christmas carols events, family festivals and special events for seniors. Furthermore, Parke Lawyers provides pro bono legal services to the Cancer Council and Salvation Army community wills program.

Mr Parke says, “Commitment to community begins in the work environment and Parke Lawyers believes that an inclusive workplace gives clients true insight and exceptional service. After all, this isn’t only good for business, it is the right thing to do.”
