‘‘ YOU’RE OF­TEN BUILD­ING RE­LA­TION­SHIPS WITH PEO­PLE DUR­ING IN­CRED­I­BLY TRAU­MATIC PARTS OF THEIR LIVES. DIREC­TOR REA­GAN WIL­SON

FAM­ILY law with a per­sonal touch is the con­cept be­hind the new law prac­tice, Wil­sons The Fam­ily Lawyers, that opened its doors in Toowoomba last week.

The prac­tice is the brain­child of le­gal part­ner and direc­tor Rea­gan Wil­son, who, with 20 years in the fam­ily law busi­ness, is in good stead to achieve his vi­sion.

Mr Wil­son started the bou­tique prac­tice after fin­ish­ing work at a larger Toowoomba-based firm last year.

“There was an op­por­tu­nity to do some­thing on a smaller scale which al­lowed us to of­fer clients a one-on-one ser­vice fo­cus­ing on their in­di­vid­ual cases and needs,” he said.

“(I de­cided) to move out of a much larger firm that had a more na­tional fo­cus to do­ing some­thing more Toowoomba based and lo­cally fo­cused.”

Mr Wil­son said he was first at­tracted to fam­ily law dur­ing his train­ing in Her­vey Bay and Mackay. He has since been named a pre-emi­nent fam­ily lawyer five years in a row.

“The main driver is the abil­ity to help peo­ple. You’re of­ten build­ing re­la­tion­ships with peo­ple dur­ing in­cred­i­bly trau­matic parts of their lives,” Mr Wil­son said.

“There’s re­search out there that says divorce is dev­as­tat­ing as a death.

“The abil­ity to see some­one through that process re­spect­fully and have them come out the other side with a good out­come - it’s very re­ward­ing.”

The prac­tice is lo­cated on level one of the Longs Quar­ter on Mar­garet St in a mod­ern, newly ren­o­vated space.

“I love the her­itage of the city and that was the ap­peal be­hind this of­fice space,” he said.

“I think they’ve done a great job in terms of the light, the brick and the ceil­ing – it’s not a tra­di­tional lawyers of­fice.”
