Sandra Clive, one of our Principals, leads our family law division, CBC Family Lawyers.
Unlike the vast majority of family lawyers in other firms, who practice exclusively in family law in Townsville, Sandra has almost twenty years of experience practising in all areas of the law. Sandra is therefore able to consider all issues, no matter what area of law, that are relevant in a family dispute, and plan the best strategy for each matter. This unique ability, together with Sandra’s immense passion for her clients’ cause, has enabled Sandra to consistently achieve fantastic outcomes for the firm’s clients, even in the most complex matters involving family trusts, companies, partnerships and other elaborate business structures.
Sandra personally case manages all of CBC’s family law files to ensure all clients receive the benefit of her experience and talent. In addition, unlike most family lawyers, who brief barristers at significant cost to the client, Sandra and other members of CBC’s Townsville team, personally conduct all conferences, court appearances and some trials, providing considerable cost savings to CBC’s clients. Further, with the intimate knowledge of the file that can only come from working on it on a daily basis, by personally attending all conferences and court appearances, and conducting some trials, CBC’s experienced team achieves much better outcomes for their clients than firms that brief a barrister who has limited time to read a selection of relevant documents, often at the last minute, prior to attending important conferences and court appearances.
Binding financial agreements
CBC can also assist you to prevent timely and costly,
both in monetary and emotional expense, family law proceedings by drafting a binding financial agreement (pre-nuptial agreement).
