Tiernan Family Law

We are a little different...



“An enormous thank you for helping me sort out my children's matter. It comes as a great (great, great) relief”.



“With my previous lawyers, I had so much more I wanted to tell them but every time I sent them an email or called them, even for small things, they charged me. With you guys, everything’s included”.

"Thank you Julann. You actually listened to me. I cannot thank you enough for what you have done and how much you have helped me. I felt so lost before."


How We Work For You

How do Fixed Fees Work


Once we receive your enquiry, our Family Law Specialist contacts you for a no obligation, no cost initial appointment, conducted by phone or online. Usually no face to face meeting is required but we are also mobile and can come to you if you prefer.

Our Specialist lawyer will provide you with tailored advice, specific to your situation . We then give you our Fixed Fee quote which covers everything needed, based on our advice to you and our agreed path forward.

The Advantages of Fixed Fees


Once we have completed our work in your Family Law matter, we issue you our invoice which matches our original agreed price. This means you have "Fee Certainty" - there are no nasty surprises because you know what the costs will be. Divorce and separation is an uncertain and expensive time and we do not want our legal fees to add to that stress. And everything is included so if you need to speak to us, it's all part of the deal.

Our Firm's Focus


Relationship breakdown can feel devastating. Everything seems different and your future looks uncertain. We can help...

We are a full service Family Law firm and we will work with you to generate solutions. Because you are dealing with an industry recognised Accredited Family Law Specialist, we offer the highest quality work and we pride ourselves on thinking outside the box - Court is not always the answer. Our experience means we can help with options you may not have considered. 

Our Director


Hi I’m Julann Tiernan

and I'm a Family Lawyer. I'm also a Queensland Law Society Accredited Family Law Specialist, which means I've had special training to be recognised as an expert in my field. I only practice in Family Law, which is a highly specialised area of law. After working for many years for big law firms, I saw a gaping hole in the market and a need for an accessible lawyer, with a modern, more virtual approach.

I have previously worked for big firms who focussed on budgets and turnover. I didn't want to do this anymore. For me, this wasn't client-focussed. It didn't pay attention to what families in distress longed for - which was a simpler approach, that focussed on solutions for an agreed Fixed Fee. That's what Tiernan Family Law does. We know that, even after separation and divorce, you are still a family and that is what’s important. We are a fresh start - for families in need.
