Family law expert Gabriella Pomare and her team provide specialised services to the North Shore and Northern Beaches.
“No one wins in family law”. This is not the response you usually expect to hear from any lawyer, let alone one with multiple years and countless cases under her belt. Nevertheless, this is the answer that Norton Law Group Partner Gabriella Pomare gives when discussing the intricacies of being a family law specialist.
The Norton Law Group have been in operation in the Sydney region for over 30 years now, originally starting in Leichhardt with Gabriella’s father, Franco Pomare, and two other partners. Gabriella tells us that Franco was in fact one of the first lawyers in Sydney to receive a specialist accreditation in the field of family law.
Gabriella has been with the Norton Law Group for around 10 years now and opened the North Sydney office in 2021, just two years after being a finalist in the “Rising Star of the Year Award” with the Australian Law Awards. More recently in 2022 she was a finalist in the “Partner- Family Law” category at the same awards.
Having worked in family law for an extended period of time now, Gabriella has seen it all, and for her, one of the biggest priorities is to change public perception about divorce and family disputes.
In Gabriella’s office, the approach is primarily based on problem-solving and she attributes most of her success to this notion.
“There is too much stigma around divorce proceedings,” she says, “I prefer to approach each client uniquely to give them an individual pathway forward”.
“We have the responsibility to remind our clients that the relationships that they need to work on and improve are those with their ex-spouse, children, and in-laws as these are the ones that, regardless of the separation, will continue – whereas the relationship with their lawyers will come to an end.”
Gabriella also firmly believes that law is not the only specialty required in cases of family breakdowns. She and her team prefer to work closely with local psychologists, counsellors, financial advisers and brokers, or any other relevant professionals to gain the best possible results for her clients, and their families.
As well as offering services across all aspects of family law, the Norton Law Group also offers legal advice and representation in the fields of property law and conveyancing, wills and estate planning, and mediation and dispute resolution.
