Lee Pawlak receives state-wide recognition as part of elite Family Law advisory committee

Tonkin Drysdale Partners’ Partner Lee Pawlak has heightened his reputation as one of the Central Coast’s top Family Law experts, recently completing his role overseeing assessments for the NSW Law Society’s Family Law Specialist Accreditation Advisory Committee for 2019.
State-wide, Lee is one of just 14 Accredited Specialists in Family Law to sit on the Committee – and the only one from the Central Coast.
Lee was appointed an Accredited Specialist in 2017 and was invited onto the Committee as an Assessor within just 12 months. This elevated Lee to the top of his practice area and he now assesses work submitted by experienced peers seeking to become Accredited Specialists in Family Law.
Lee’s role demonstrates the profession’s high regard for the expertise he and his firm offers. Woy Woy-based Tonkin Drysdale Partners boasts four lawyers in the division, making it the biggest family law practice on the Central Coast.
With the vast majority of his fellow assessors working in Sydney, Lee’s qualifications give Central Coast residents access to top quality Family Law advice not readily available in other regional areas of NSW.
Tonkin Drysdale Partners’ Managing Partner Darrell Pannowitz believes Lee’s efforts have been a key to the firm becoming a Family Law powerhouse.
“To not only reach this level, but remain there for multiple years, is a reflection of Lee’s passion and commitment to Family Law and our clients,” Darrell said.
“His position on the Committee sets Lee apart on the Central Coast, giving our community access to the best possible expertise in what can be a very challenging area of the law.”
