About Us


McVeity & Associates was established by Philip McVeity in 1985 as a general legal practice with Philip prepared to do any legal work  - well, anything but Family Law.


Things do not always work out as planned and an early association with a local Women's Shelter and a sympathetic ear to the most common of human ailments - relationship breakdown -  meant that the practice grew strongly in that unexpected direction.


In this Century real service delivery demands specialisation. McVeity & Associates realised it could be a "Jack of all Trades" legal firm and  re-focussed  to work almost exclusively in the World of Family Law. This specialisation is unique in our home State of Tasmania


In 2002 Philip was joined  by Joanna Dean, a highly skilled and personable legal practitioner.


We appear in all Family Law jurisdictions in any Court in Australia.


Today we prefer to negotiate legal solutions for our clients and litigate if we must.


Either way we work  to provide winning legal service for our clients.
