Myles Walker is an Accredited Family Law Specialist at Pullos Lawyers who compliments his reputation as a leading litigator with expertise in out-of-court dispute resolution practices, including collaborative law and mediation.
From the very beginning of my legal career I was particularly drawn to Family Law for its potential to positively impact the day-to-day lives of everyday people. Over the past 10 or more years I have been fortunate enough to experience that potential first hand and assist clients in setting a positive path for their future. Achieving Specialist Family Law Accreditation and training in Collaborative Law allows me to assist clients with even the most challenging of cases; mitigating stress and building the foundations for clients to move forward positively and with self-determination.
Before beginning my legal career, I worked as an award-winning Australian Musician. My own ventures combined with a family heritage in Australian music helped to give me a foundational grounding to my surrounding community. One of the perks of being an Australian musician is this personal involvement with people all around the country. This everyday community closeness encouraged a deep appreciation and respect for individual people and their unique challenges and achievements. This perspective has always been very important to me and is a
strong influencer in how I practice law today.
For as long as I have been involved in law, I’ve been deeply interested in Family Law, even while studying law at QUT and before I had decided on which path my legal career would take. Family Law is unique in that it requires expertise in numerous legal disciplines as well as being directly connected to everyday people. Because families form such a central part of our lives and communities, Family Law is closely linked to the way our society evolves and how we deal with that change from both a legal and personal perspective.
Family related issues of any kind, particularly where there are forms of violence, abuse or a lack of personal security are extremely difficult for everyone. The change of ending a longstanding partnership in and of itself has a significant impact on our personal lives. I draw great fulfilment from being able to assist people through these challenges and protect their rights as mothers, fathers, children and people. Ultimately, I want to assist clients in establishing a solid foundation from which they can continue their lives in a positive way.
One of the biggest challenges many people face when trying to resolve a family law dispute is the length of time and cost associated with legal representation. I’ve trained as a collaborative law practitioner in order to help people come to positive resolutions out of court, saving them time, money and the unnecessary stress associated with litigation. Out-of-court dispute resolution techniques aren’t right for everyone, but when utilised appropriately, they provide people with a clear and self-determined pathway to lasting positive outcomes.
Whilst Family Law occupies most of my time, it has always been important to give myself some space so that I can approach each day, and each client with a renewed sense of energy and purpose. Spending time outdoors in Northern New South Wales with my Wife, Son and our dog Jake is an extremely important part of my life. Playing music and working on my 70’s BMW Motorcycle all combine to give me the space I need to reflect on my legal practice, lead a balanced life and ultimately, offer clients expert legal assistance through even the most challenging matters.
If you or someone you know requires assistance in a family law matter, please contact me at Pullos Lawyers. I look forward to meeting you and working together to achieve lasting positive outcomes for you and your family.
