Brent joined Nicholes Family Lawyers in 2022 after practising for several years at a national family law firm and with several suburban firms.

He has practised solely in family law since his admission to practice in 2017, developing a passion for assisting clients with a broad scope of family law problems, ranging from situations where there have been allegations of family violence to negotiating a property settlement for separating couples.
