"I am committed to protecting my clients’ interests with a particular focus on settling matters pre litigation where possible."

Anne O’Loughlin

Managing Principal | Family & Relationship Law
Anne has practised exclusively in family law since 2005 and has been recognised as a Leading Family & Divorce Lawyer in Regional Victoria in the 2022 Doyle’s Guide, as well as a finalist in the Partner of the Year Awards 2020. She works within our experienced Family & Relationship Law team in both the Geelong and Melbourne offices, steadfastly committed to achieving the best outcomes for every client. Anne and the family law team’s hallmark is creative, collaborative and practical solutions that help clients focus on the future. Anne has significant experience in resolving matters by negotiation through alternative dispute resolution and mediation.

Anne and her team consistently resolve complex divorce, property and parenting matters without the need to resort to costly and lengthy litigation. Where settlement can’t be reached pre-litigation, Anne’s family law expertise delivers strong, client-centric representation in court.

As an Independent Children’s Lawyer appointed by Victoria Legal Aid, Anne uses her experience, expertise and empathy to represent and promote the interests of children in family law proceedings. These cases often involve difficult issues such as high levels of conflict and allegations of abuse, neglect or family violence.

Beyond the practice, Anne is a member of the Quality and Research Committee at MacKillop Family Services and on the Board of Lazarus Community Centre. She is also a member of the Strategy and Policy Committee and on the Board for Committee for Geelong as well as a mentor for Women in Heels and a member of the CEO Institute.
