“I know exactly what you’re going through”Allison

Allison Rowe is the Founding Partner of Cahill and Rowe Family Law in Ocean Grove and Geelong and has practised exclusively in family law since her admission as a Barrister and Solicitor of the Supreme Court of Victoria and the High Court of Australia in 1999.

Allison founded the Geelong Cahill and Rowe practice (then Rowe Lawyers) in 2003, at the age of only 28 years, after working for several years in the community legal and legal aid sectors.

During her 20 years in practice as a senior family lawyer, Allison has represented clients from across Australia in both parenting and property matters. She is a highly skilled and dedicated family law practitioner, with a solid and longstanding reputation for excellence.  She is an experienced and highly competent litigator and mediator.  She frequently represents clients with complex financial matters involving commercial business structures.  Allison is regularly ranked by Doyles Guide as a Leading Family Lawyer for Regional Victoria.

Allison has personally experienced the painful process of separation and divorce with young children involved.  She has a particular interest in parenting arrangements for very young children and the issues confronting blended/stepfamilies.

Drawing on her own personal experiences, and her 20 years in family law practice, Allison represents her clients passionately, personally and with the meticulous attention to detail for which she is well known and regarded.

Allison is available for appointments at both our Geelong office and our new Bellarine office in Ocean Grove.
