Woy Woy law firm recognised in leading legal directory

Woy Woy law firm, and one of its partners, have been recognised in the 2023 edition of a leading legal directory.

Tonkin Drysdale Partners was included in the Doyle's Guide for 2023 in the Leading Family and Divorce Law Firms - Newcastle, Hunter Valley and Central Coast Guide category, while partner Mr Lee Pawlak featured in the family and divorce lawyer category.

Tonkin Drysdale Partners' managing partner Mr Paul Tonkin said recommendations like this could be helpful for consumers looking to find a lawyer to represent them.

"Choosing a lawyer can be a difficult decision, and when it's a family law matter, it's usually a highly sensitive situation with a lot at stake, which makes the decision even more important," he said.

"I'm thrilled Tonkin Drysdale Partners and Lee have been recognised in the Guide as it's an endorsement of the high level of expertise and commitment Lee and his team consistently deliver to all of our family law clients."

Mr Pawlak was also an accredited specialist in family law, and one of just 14 accredited specialists across the state to sit on the NSW Law Society's Family Law Advisory Committee.

Mr Tonkin said that, under Mr Pawlak's lead, the firm's family law practice had grown significantly in recent years.

"The team now consists of five family lawyers, making it the largest family law team on the Central Coast."

Mr Pawlak said that his and Tonkin Drysdale Partner's inclusion in the Doyle's Guide was an acknowledgement of the firm's wider family law team.

"I'm really proud of the family law offering we've developed," he said.

"Being named in the Doyle's Guide list is recognition of the high standards and incredible dedication of the entire family law team.

"With five lawyers who each bring a unique perspective and more than 50 years of combined experience, our team is well placed to provide expert advice in all areas of family law," he concluded.

Fellow partner Mr Paul Quinn is also a family lawyer, a nationally-accredited mediator and accredited family dispute resolution practitioner.

"One of just 10 lawyers to be included in the Guide, this recognition endorses Lee as an authority in his practice area, demonstrating the expertise, knowledge and reputation he has earnt in his 15 years as a family lawyer," said Mr Tonkin.

"Considered to be the most reliable assessment of law firms and lawyers in Australia, the Doyle's Guide is a comprehensive directory showcasing Australia's best lawyers across a range of different legal categories and geographical areas.

"It is designed to help individuals make more informed decisions when choosing a lawyer and is compiled through a completely independent, objective peer review process, which includes in-depth surveys and interviews with clients, peers and industry bodies," he said.
