Erin Shaw Brisbane Family Lawyer

Erin Shaw


Originally from Sydney, where I spent the early years of my legal career, I am a resolution-focussed family lawyer based in Brisbane CBD.

My background is in complex litigation for high net worth clients. Having completed my Masters in Family Law, I have a particular focus on complex financial disputes, including property settlement and spouse maintenance issues. I also have extensive experience in complex parenting matters, including parental alienation issues and children with unique needs.

I am currently serving on the committee of the Queensland Association of Collaborative Practitioners. As a collaboratively-trained lawyer, I encourage my clients to take a positive approach towards problem-solving and to focus on reaching a resolution with dignity and ownership.

There are many pathways to reach an agreed resolution, including collaboration, negotiation, round-table conferences and mediation. Whilst the majority of my clients are able to resolve their family law issues via these methods, there are cases where litigation is necessary. Even when my client’s dispute is occurring in the litigation arena, my approach remains positive and pragmatic.

I provide thorough, strategic and realistic legal advice in a positive, efficient, cost-effective and friendly way, and I consider it a privilege to guide my clients through such a challenging part of their lives.

“Erin Shaw was recommended to me by someone who had recently achieved a successful outcome in their Family Law matter, with Erin’s assistance.

When I first came to see Erin, I had already worked with two other lawyers on my case. Erin was able to understand my situation at the time and she worked with me to lay out a very clear and pragmatic approach to resolving it.

I was faced with a highly complex situation that was a potential dire straits for me. I was facing the loss of my property portfolio and the realisation of massive tax consequences. Erin’s advice was always clear, precise, pragmatic and very well timed. With her assistance, advice and strategy, I was able to keep the home that I wanted to keep and save hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Erin is very focused and she achieves results. I am deeply appreciative of her assistance and recommend her highly.”
