Baker Love appoints new Lawyer with two decades of experience

Baker Love continues to attract new talent to its family law practice, with the appointment of Family Law Solicitor, Louise Neilson.

Louise joined the firm, which is one of oldest in the Newcastle area, in January. She was attracted to Baker Love’s solid reputation and ability to provide a comprehensive scope of legal services.

“It is great to join a larger team with wide-ranging expertise,” Louise said.

“As family law matters can often be quite complex, it is beneficial to be able to draw on a team of lawyers specializing in areas that will assist my clients, such as property, succession planning and trusts.”

Louise’s commitment to providing a holistic approach to family law fits well with Baker Love’s ethos of giving advice tailored to each client’s individual circumstances,

“Experience has shown that the best approach in family law is one that is people-focused and not purely transactional,” she said.

“I believe it is my job to empower my clients with knowledge, laying out all the options available to them so they can take the path that best meets the needs of their family, now and in the future.”

Family Law is a natural fit for Louise’s character. A self-confessed helper, Louise takes joy from her work when she is able to help people make good decisions at difficult times in their life.

“Family breakdowns can often be one of the hardest times of a person’s life. The decisions they make in the aftermath of a divorce or separation can affect them and their children for decades to come.”

“Ensuring that people make sound choices about property, finances and spend time on

arrangements for their little ones are one of the highlights of my work and gives me real job satisfaction.”

Connecting with clients and building a solid foundation of trust is therefore a priority for Louise. She believes that developing a genuine relationship with her clients is important in securing a successful outcome.

“I want people to know what I stand for and I want clients to be able to relate to me. I am a mother and I have been through a less than amicable divorce, so I understand what clients are going through and how much they have at stake,” she said.

“While no doubt a last resort, for many clients, court is not the best solution. I am passionate about helping people find a way through a divorce or separation without having to pursue matters through the court.

“Ultimately, it is my goal to have my clients reach an outcome that works for them in the most peaceable way possible.”

Louise is excited about her future at Baker Love and the opportunity to work with the firm’s diverse range of lawyers.

“Taking this job has allowed me to work with amazing lawyers with unique experience. The team has a broad client base requiring different types of legal skill and experience,” Louise said.

“I love being part of a collaborative team that workshops ideas and develops innovative outcomes for clients. We all approach matters from different angles which I ultimately think yields the best outcomes for those we represent.”

Louise gained her Bachelor of Laws from Southern Cross University after completing her degree by correspondence. She was admitted to the Supreme Court in 2010.
