Coast fam­ily law ex­perts mark a year in busi­ness

Sunshine Coast Daily - - BETTER BUSINESS -

TWO fam­ily law-ac­cred­ited spe­cial­ists for­merly em­ployed by Schultz Toomey O’Brien Lawyers and then Slater & Gor­don are cel­e­brat­ing one year in busi­ness, with the firm set to dou­ble in size.

Liz Cat­ton and An­gela Ton­del­strand were two of Schultz Toomey O’Brien’s most se­nior fam­ily lawyers when the firm was sold in 2014.

Tak­ing charge of their own fu­tures, they formed Cat­ton & Ton­del­strand Lawyers, ini­tially em­ploy­ing a team of four.

They have quickly earned a rep­u­ta­tion for pro­vid­ing out­stand­ing le­gal ad­vice with com­pet­i­tive fees and are now at a point where they will dou­ble in size.

Both Liz and An­gela are ranked as lead­ing Sun­shine Coast di­vorce lawyers in the pres­ti­gious Doyle’s Guide for their spe­cial­ist ex­per­tise in fam­ily law, mat­ri­mo­nial dis­putes, par­ent­ing, prop­erty and spousal main­te­nance mat­ters.

Liz said that while tak­ing the first step into own­ing your own busi­ness was daunt­ing, it had been worth the risk. “An­gela and I knew that, to­gether, we would form a re­ally dy­namic, bou­tique fam­ily law firm that we could be proud of,” she said.

“From the be­gin­ning we have had clients find us and now our busi­ness is grow­ing or­gan­i­cally as word of mouth spreads. Our com­bined ex­per­tise and skills re­ally set us apart.

There is a de­mand for ex­pe­ri­enced fam­ily lawyers on the Coast.”

NEW FIRM: Liz Cat­ton and An­gela Ton­del­strand.
