Our clients

Our clients come from many parts of Gippsland and from all walks of life.  But they have one thing in common:  they are part of a family!   

Every once-in-a-while, a family member needs legal services, to deal with the death of a relative, the purchase, sale or lease of a property,  planning for the distribution of their estate or to resolve issues following the breakdown of an important relationship.

Our practice is about:

Family Law and more


Meet the Principal


The firm's Principal, Donna Valentine, spent the early part of her career working as a paralegal in the field of employment law. After approximately twenty years in industries as diverse as manufacturing and mining, postal and hospital services, she added a Bachelor of Laws to her qualifications. Feeling like a change of environment (a tree change?) Donna Valentine headed for West Gippsland, renowned for its agricultural produce, natural resources and, in recent times, its significance as one of Victoria's developing regional centres.

Since coming to Gippsland, Donna has added a Master of Applied Law (Family Law) to her formal qualifications.

 Donna Valentine enjoys working with people from different backgrounds and aims to provide sound legal advice focused on timely and practical outcomes for her clients.
