James Moore

James Moore joined the team at Counsel Family Lawyers in early 2015.  He has practised exclusively in family law since his admission to practice in 2011 and always with boutique and specialist family law firms.

Since joining the team at Counsel Family Lawyers, James has become an Associate of the firm and is responsible for complex commercial and difficult children’s matters.  Given James’ experience in relation to all aspects of family law, he is well suited to looking after your needs.  He has been particularly successful with many of our families in alternative dispute resolution and assisting our clients resolve their matters early at private mediations and therefore avoid the costs and delays associated with final hearings.  James approaches problem solving with his clients in a collaborative manner.

James appears in the Federal Circuit Court of Australia and the Family Court of Australia on behalf of our clients in relation to their matters and also works well in teams with members of the Victorian Bar.

James obtained his Bachelor of Laws and Bachelor of Arts from Monash University in 2011, completing
an Honours Thesis on the topic of Australian political donations and campaign finance.

James excels at assisting our clients in navigating a course through the fraught and complex maze of separation.
