About Us

Family law is all that we do, and we are proud to service the community of Newcastle. Kathy Matri, our principal lawyer, has solely practiced in the area of Family and Relationships Law for the last ten years. We have extensive experience in the Family Court and Federal Circuit Court, as well as in the Children’s Court, protecting the rights of parents and grandparents. We are also practiced in dealing with large property cases and more complicated parenting matters, including child abduction and sexual abuse allegations.

In August 2012, after nine years of practicing family law, Kathy started East Coast Family Lawyers as a sole practitioner on the Central Coast. Prior to entering law, Kathy gained significant experience in sales and marketing, leading her to identify failings in the delivery of family law services generally. She is now determined to address those issues by providing exceptional professional legal services with a focus on client satisfaction.

As a result, we have hundreds of happy clients, who tell us that they choose us, and refer their friends, because we are specialists in family and relationship law, we communicate in plain English and always respond within 24 hours, we are experienced negotiators and mediators, and we take a stand when needed to get the best result possible.

East Coast Family Lawyers now has a second branch in Newcastle, and is home to a full and highly qualified team of solicitors. Each team member has a passion to help and support people through an empathetic and non-judgmental approach to family law matters.
