Anton A Richardson (LLB Hons) is a senior family lawyer, practicing exclusively in both Matrimonial and De Facto family law matters and is on the Doyle's Guide as a recommended family lawyer.

Anton has practiced family law in Queensland since 2004, having relocated from Ireland in 2003. Anton brings with him a reputation as a powerful advocate for his client’s rights and entitlements. Through negotiation or recourse to the Courts, Anton consistently achieves excellent outcomes.

Anton has significant experience in both property and parenting matters and has represented and continues to represent, high profile and high net worth individuals, particularly from the Gold Coast and surrounds.

Anton’s ability to speak French, German and a little Spanish, also assists in representing many overseas clients, who benefit from his ability to communicate well with parties who do not consider English as their first language.

As a commercially minded lawyer, Anton will assist parties with the most complex of corporate and trust structures and also in matters where assets have been hidden or require tracing and forensic accounting.

In children’s matters, Anton has considerable experience in ensuring that parenting and living arrangements reflect what is in the child’s best interests. Anton acknowledges the importance of ensuring that children have the benefit of both their parents having a meaningful involvement in their lives, whilst at the same time remaining aware of the importance of protecting children from physical or psychological harm from being subjected to, or exposed to, abuse, neglect or family violence.

Anton is also a qualified mediator who uses his experience in mediation to assist clients to negotiate successfully to achieve the best possible outcome, whilst also benefiting from cost effective settlements. When acting as mediator, Anton uses his exceptional communication skills to listen to both parties, identify the issues and the parties’ position, before conducting discussions and aiding parties to come to a sensible, fair and commercial outcome.
