Caring Lawyers,
Compassionate Solutions:
Reshaping Divorce for Families


We Collaborate

We are specially trained collaborative lawyers. Our goal is to help you reach agreement without conflict and court so you can move on and be happy again.

We Empower

We are accredited specialists in family law. We provide expert advice at every step of the process so you can make informed decisions and keep control of your life.

We Resolve

We are resolution focussed and fixed fee only. We help you reach an agreement with compassion and kindness so you can separate respectfully.

Throughout the course of my legal matter, you kept me informed every step of the way, providing regular updates and answering all of my questions promptly and thoroughly. Your commitment to my case was evident in everything you did, and I always felt like I was in good hands with you as my lawyer.

About Us

Our Promise

At Tiernan Family Law, we are focussed on helping our clients move on as amicably and as cost-effectively as possible. We recognise that the end of a relationship is hugely stressful – emotionally and financially – so we offer all our family law services on a fixed fee basis, to remove the sting of unknown legal fees from your plan to move forward.

We are not like other lawyers. We work in a kind, empathetic and child-focussed way at all times. We know that, even after divorce and separation, you are still a family.


Working out the arrangements for your children after separation is important. It includes all sorts of things such as where they will live, who they will spend time with and who will pay for them. We can help you with documenting agreements, both formal and informal, non-binding and binding. Either way, we’ll help you find the right solution for you and your children.

Financial Agreements

We can draft your agreement to ensure it is legally binding. Property takes all forms, shapes and sizes. We can help you finalise the division of your property with your former partner in a variety of ways, depending on the stage of your discussions, negotiations or agreement or represent you in mediation or court proceedings to find a resolution. We’ll advocate for the best outcome for you.


Mediation is the out-of-court option and suitable for many people just like you. We work with a wide range of very experienced mediators to find the solution you need, whilst guiding you along the way. We get involved in all stages of dispute resolution, so you can call us at any time along the way.

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.

Our Director

Hi I’m Julann Tiernan

I’m a specialist family lawyer and practice only in family law. Having worked in larger firms, I put out my shingle to make a difference for my clients by offering genuine fixed fee services. My ‘why’ is simple; I believe in offering whatever fee certainty I can along with support, empathy, kindness and compassion for my clients through their toughest of days. You are not alone.

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.
