Damian Shanahan – Lawyer

Damian graduated from the University of Sydney in 1983 and since then his main area of practice has been in Family Law.

After practising in Sydney for several years I relocated to the Far North Coast of NSW in 1991 where I was a lecturer in Family Law at Southern Cross University. Following this I returned to work in private practice and in 1994 I qualified as an Accredited Specialist in Family Law.

I joined Family Law Solutions in 2011 and since then I have been able to utilise my extensive experience in this busy practice.  My aim is to help you navigate through the legal system as painlessly as possible with no pretension and to focus on achieving the outcome that you want in a timely manner.

I believe that maintaining an approachable down to earth style with my clients is important. The last thing people need in this stressful time is a lawyer who talks down to them or fails to keep them informed of the progress of their matter. I will pick up the phone and talk to you. Whether a matter can be settled through negotiation and mediation or it proceeds to a court hearing, my aim is to achieve the best outcome for you.
