David is an associate in our family law team.

David has practiced exclusively in family law since his admission to practice. He is able to handle a wide variety of matters ranging from the most complex matters to every day disputes. His emphasis is to help his clients move on with their lives in the quickest and most cost effective way following a separation and if a matter needs to go to Court he is able to competently and confidently prepare his client's case and recommend a barrister who will properly put their case.

David’s particular interest is in acting in matters involving:

  • The Hague Convention (international child abduction);

  • Relocation (both interstate and overseas);

  • Matters in which one spouse is a bankrupt.

David is sensitive to people with various different needs and of different backgrounds and his Sri Lankan heritage gives him a special understanding of issues facing client’s with an Asian sub-continent heritage. David also has a working knowledge of Singhalese. 

David is also a Registered Migration Agent (MARN 1683083).
