Who is Luke Cudmore?

Luke Web 0551

I am the father of two young children and I understand the asymmetric joy a parent and child can provide to one another and the need to protect them. I feel passionately about family law and guiding our clients through a system which has its flaws.

I am compassionate, caring and understanding. My experiences as a father contextualise my family law work and I recognise the anguish felt by some parents in high conflict custody disputes having worked side by side with them on numerous family law matters. Whilst you might be feeling the emotional strain, I promise to be the rock you can turn to for advice in the most difficult situations.

I pride myself on giving no-nonsense, straightforward and sensible family law advice (and sometimes the advice you might not want to hear). I promise to always be honest with you about where your matter is at.

I believe litigation should be a last resort and only used when all other avenues have failed. I pride myself on helping my clients and opening the door for them to continue the next leg of their life journey.
