Attwood Marshall Lawyers welcome experienced Family Lawyer Sarah Caruso to the firm


We’re pleased to welcome seasoned family lawyer Sarah Caruso to the firm and grow our family law team, explains Attwood Marshall Lawyers Legal Practice Director Jeff Garrett.

Meet Sarah Caruso

Sarah has worked in Melbourne for the last 8 years with respected Family Law city firms and has practiced almost exclusively in this complex area of law. She gained extensive experience handling complicated Family Law matters across the board and brings a wealth of knowledge and understanding to the Attwood Marshall Lawyers Family Law team.

Sarah is a ‘local’, having grown up on the Gold Coast and completed her law degree at Bond University. Sarah was excited to return home to the Gold Coast from Melbourne in 2021 to settle with her family. She is very happy to come back to the beautiful Queensland weather.

She is a seasoned family lawyer with an in-depth understanding of the law. She understands that when family disputes arise, the most important aspect is to support her client through a very stressful time and provide them with practical legal advice and recommendations. Sarah guides her clients through the challenging and complex legal system to deliver positive outcomes.

She understands that litigation is expensive and stressful and whenever possible, encourages conflict resolution with the use of negotiation and dispute resolution strategies to try to resolve matters quickly and cost-effectively. However, where necessary, Sarah will litigate matters as required and delivers passionate advocacy skills to achieve her client’s desired outcome.

Sarah is able to easily build rapport with her clients and provides them with empathy and understanding when listening and delivering advice. Her goal is to deliver timely and cost-effective solutions that are both pragmatic and commercially sound.

Sarah can assist with all aspects of Family Law matters including:

  • Binding Financial Agreements
  • Consent Orders on Property and Children
  • Child Support Agreements
  • Divorce Applications
  • Complex property and de facto matters
  • Parenting matters
  • Property settlements
  • Relocation disputes
  • LGBTI relationships
  • Mediation

She is a member of the Queensland Law Society (QLD), Family Law section of the Law Council of Australia, and Family Law Association of Queensland.

We are excited to welcome Sarah to the team and know that she will be a valuable asset, and continue to deliver our firm’s intent, to help people and change their lives for the better.

A dedicated family law team providing specialist advice

Our family law team consists of 5 family lawyers, who act exclusively in this area and are at the top of their professional knowledge and experience in family law. We also have support family law and domestic violence paralegals, and a dedicated department manager.

Our difference is that unlike other generalist law firms, our team practice exclusively in family law. The department is headed up by Senior Associate Hayley Condon, who has over 16 years’ extensive experience in all aspects of Family Law, with a particular interest in dealing with challenging cases involving entrenched property disputes. The department also leverages off the expert knowledge of Special Counsel, Michael Twohill – a fierce courtroom advocate with over 40 years’ experience, who also handles sensitive matters involving domestic and family violence.

We are proud to offer the services of our passionate and driven family lawyers, now growing to a team of 8 with Sarah Caruso joining the firm. We guarantee you will get all our time, attention, and expertise to support you, and your family, when you need it most.

When you are dealing with family law matters, you often have other overlapping issues you may need to consider. This is where Attwood Marshall Lawyers can offer all family law clients an invaluable point of difference.

Our family law team are supported by our other specialist legal teams who can also assist with matters outside of family law such as reviewing your Will, Power of Attorney or other estate planning documents following separation, estate disputes, personal injury and compensation law, as well as assistance with buying or selling property and businesses. All these services are available inhouse so if you have overlapping legal matters, we never need to refer you elsewhere.

We’re ready to help you – our family law team are available during lockdown

If you need us, we can arrange a telephone or video consultation at any time if you are currently at home and unable to visit one of our conveniently located offices.

We understand that family issues can be exacerbated during these challenging times when lockdowns are enforced. When a relationship breaks down, it is important to get trusted advice from an experienced family lawyer who can help you identify the next steps you need to take to protect your best interests. It is our intent to help you and provide you with practical advice on any family law related matter by understanding what matters most to you and your family.  

We will formulate a strategy so that you can move on with your life and put this stressful time behind you.
