Our Approach

Every family law matter is different, and has its own special set of circumstances. Family law disputes not only include children, property and divorce – they include the emotional and personal elements of each person who is caught up in the dispute. These difficult matters, with all of their complex elements, require an approach that recognises which dispute resolution method is correct in all of the circumstances.

Our History

Hartleys Lawyers was established in 2001 by Principal Solicitor Peter Love. Over the years, demand for our services has resulted in the establishing of multiple locations throughout the Melbourne area, and expansion to a team of lawyers all focused on our approach, and finalising your matter with the best possible outcome. Our team of lawyers have diverse backgrounds, and each bring to your matter a wealth of practice and experience.

Our Commitment
To Community

From the first day of operation, Hartleys Lawyers has represented people who are privately funded as well as those with government assisted legal aid matters. We continue to represent people in receipt of government assisted grants, despite the funding cuts that have restricted who, and what legal aspects are eligible for legal representation.

We aim to attract the best solicitors to join our expanding team, and are committed to a best practice of the highest calibre. Many of our lawyers are also trained to be Independent Childrens’ Lawyers, and these are Court appointed lawyers who assist and act in the best interests of the children in any given matter.
