    Our people

    Brian Quinn: Director Principal

    Brian was admitted to practice in NSW in 2005 after completing an Arts Law program at the University of New England. After completing his tertiary education, Brian worked with the Department of Public Prosecutions during his practical legal placement. Since admission, Brian has completed a Master’s Degree in Law (UNE) which was awarded in 2007 and a Master’s Degree in Applied Family Law (College of Law) which was awarded in 2010.

    The Applied Family Law Masters course, in particular, given recent and ongoing changes in Family Law, is particularly relevant and allows Brian to give accurate, timely and contemporaneous family law advice. Prior to his studies and admission to the practice of law, Brian was a Police Officer in New South Wales for over twenty years, gaining experience early in his service in the Prosecuting Branch as a trainee. Later, he moved to the country for a number of years, working uniform duties in the Goulburn, Queanbeyan areas including the running of a one-man police station before being designated a detective, working for over fifteen of those years in criminal investigation, in regional and Metropolitan NSW.

    A number of years were spent with the Homicide Unit, South Region and some more famous or infamous cases he was involved in included the Backpacker inquiry and the inquest into Christopher Flannery disappearance. Towards the end of his policing career, Brian worked on the Central Coast for five years before commencing full-time study and practising law. Since admission, Brian had practiced initially in Bathurst, and more recently Gosford in a small firm, where he was a partner for some time before setting out on his own as a sole practitioner for over five years.

    Brian has engaged in general practice work including: 

    • Family law work: Family law property and parenting issues, de facto relationships and divorces. In recent years, Brian has acted as an ‘Independent Children’s Lawyer’, representing children in the more difficult and complicated parenting disputes.
    • Criminal work: Including local and district courts appearing regularly for traffic matters, including drink driving offences, speeding and safety offences. Criminal matters include drugs offences, assaults including serious assaults and sexual assaults, stealing, apprehended violence orders and appeals from the Local Court.
    • Drafting wills, powers of attorney and enduring guardianships.
    • Probate and administration of estates and family provision claim matters.
    • General civil litigation work, including debt recovery. Brian is admitted to practice in New South Wales, federal and family courts and appears regularly in local and district courts for criminal matters, including pleas, hearings and appeals and trials and appears regularly in the Federal Circuit of Australia and Family Courts in respect of family court proceedings.

    Academic Qualifications include:
