Born from the dissolution of Slater & Gordon's family law practice, the Bryant McKinnon practice may be new, but partners Bryant and McKinnon have already established formidable reputations and bring over 40 years family law experience.

Family law can be a difficult and dark topic.

But the new offices are open and welcoming, the walls accented with the brightly coloured artworks, many of which were created by partner Heather McKinnon.
