Daniel Myers

Daniel Myers

  • English


A natural-born optimist, Daniel is a strong advocate of helping clients resolve disputes and reaching their own agreement in a respectful and dignified manner through mediation processes and party to party negotiations.

Born and raised in Manchester, Daniel moved to Melbourne in 2007 and since then has practiced exclusively across all aspects of family law.

Daniel acutely understands the issues that can arise with property and parenting disputes for couples during separation and/or divorce. He provides specific advice and expertise in these circumstances, including:

  • Parenting plans and Parenting orders.
  • Child support and spousal maintenance.
  • Property settlements.
  • International family law disputes, especially between Australia and the UK, and Australia and Israel.

Although Daniel frequently runs matters in the Federal Circuit and Family Court of Australia, he is a strong advocate of helping clients to resolve disputes outside of Court. As a trained mediator, he guides his clients towards achieving amicable, practical, fair and cost-effective solutions without the need to litigate where possible. Daniel has also completed a postgraduate psychology degree at Deakin University to further advance his understanding about the science of human behaviour.

Actively engaged in Melbourne’s Jewish community (professionally and socially), Daniel is a volunteer lawyer at Jewish Care, a mentor of law students at Leo Cussen Centre for Law and a committee member of the Law Institute of Victoria Family Law Section (maintenance and property).

Outside of work, Daniel is a keen student of history and politics and is passionate about most sports. He’s an avid Manchester United fan, training to run his first half-marathon and can talk about cricket for longer than the length of a Test Match.



The hardest part of making your way through court is finding a decent lawyer. It’s painful and I know because I just came out the other side. Of the 50 or so I would have contacted Daniel Myers is on another level. Most are only concerned with how much money they can get out of you while Daniel has a genuine interest in your file. He drills down, understands the law in detail and has an uncanny ability to nail the most relevant issues. Daniel protects his clients by providing them with intelligent wise thoughtful counsel.

I was basically set upon by a pack of wolves and as soon as the opposition knew I had Daniel in my corner. They always had the towel nearby ready to throw it in. They don’t want to take him on because it means they have to work. This is how my matter resolved. Navigating your way through a legal matter and or court is a blood sport so let me give you some real first hand advice to make it a whole lot easier and get the result you are seeking. Start with Daniel Myers and finish with Daniel Myers. Don’t waste your time and put yourself through the pain of finding a lawyer. I just gave you the best. Daniel Myers.
