The CG Family Law Team
Christopher graduated with a Bachelor of Arts from Flinders University in 1990 and a Bachelor of Laws from the University of Adelaide in 1992. He gained a graduate diploma in Legal practice in 1993 and was admitted to practice in the Supreme Court of Australia. Starting as a Junior Solicitor in a large city-based law firm, Christopher initially specialised in Children’s issues and found he had a real passion for Family Law. In 1994 he was admitted to practice in the High Court of Australia and continued to expand his Family Law experience into divorce and separation, property settlement and financial agreements. Working in a large city based firm enabled Chris to gain a great deal of exposure to some highly complex property and financial settlements along with some of the more difficult cases involving children.
Passionate about helping families across Adelaide, Christopher established CG Family Law in 1996 as a specialist Family Law firm. With many of the large law firms offering an assortment of legal services, Christopher saw the need for a specialist Law Firm with a sole focus on families and Family Law. He established CG Family Law to offer an accessible, cost effective, legal service offering support and specialist advice to families going through divorce or separation. 23 years later CG Family Law is now recognised as a leading Family Law firm for both straightforward and the more complex legal issues affecting families going through divorce or separation.
