Our story

In 1990, Warwick (Rick) Jones and David Mitchell had a vision to create a specialist family law firm that was a genuine 'centre for excellence'.

From that vision, Jones Mitchell Lawyers was born: a firm to service client’s growing need for specialist practitioners in the ever-changing, emotional and extremely complex area of family law.

Now the largest speciality family law firm in Queensland, Jones Mitchell Lawyers thrives on our professional reputation to handle the most difficult and complex family law cases – locally, nationally and internationally.

The first choice referral by many professionals – relationship counsellors, psychologists, doctors, valuers, accountants, financial planners as well as other lawyers – Jones Mitchell Lawyers has a long track record of resolving disputes quickly, out of court while maintaining clients’ dignity and self-respect.

All of the firm’s lawyers practise exclusively in family law including de facto and same sex relationships. Many of the firm’s senior lawyers have undertaken extensive and rigorous extra study to be Accredited Family Law Specialists by the Queensland Law Society.

An independent firm, Jones Mitchell Lawyers has a strong commitment to ongoing professional development and is a key contributor to the ongoing development of the family law profession. Partners and staff are active in professional organisations and the firm is the largest provider of work experience to family law students from Bond University.

Armed with a clear understanding of family law and the everyday know-how to apply it, Jones Mitchell Lawyers listen, counsel and guide their clients to ensure they achieve the best possible outcome for their future.
