Rob Brook – Principal Lawyer
Rob Brook provides Legal Advice and Strategy Sessions for Interact Support from his office in Newcastle (by appointment only).
Rob is a family law solicitor working for Newcastle and Legal Conveyancing.
Rob understands the needs of family law clients and that people want fast, cost-effective legal solutions wherever possible. He is skilled in getting matters to settle either without resorting to litigation or by causing the opposing party to settle after proceedings have been launched.
After completing his arts (politics) and law degrees at Macquarie University, Rob travelled to New York where he worked at Mudge Rose, a large Wall Street law firm, on one of its commercial litigation teams. While in New York Rob passed the New York bar exam and was admitted as an attorney in 1994.
From New York Rob went to Hong Kong where he worked in a medium-sized practice, Pam Baker & Company. In Hong Kong he focused primarily on public law litigation while also being involved in some family, civil and criminal law matters. He completed the foreign lawyers’ exam and was admitted as a solicitor in 1999. Rob completed a master of laws degree from HKU while there.
After returning to Australia in 2002 Rob took a hiatus from the law to pursue farming, property and other business interests. His love of the law lured him back to the profession in 2011. As the principal director of Newcastle Legal he liaises regularly with the other lawyers and colleagues in the team on strategies in the cases they are handling.

Accessible and affordable legal advice
At Newcastle Legal we understand that life can sometimes present moments that require help from a lawyer.
Some of these moments are happy occasions like buying or starting a new business, and buying or selling your home. Some are just necessary, like making and updating your Will for your family’s protection and your own peace of mind, or a binding financial agreement. Other moments are challenging, like getting divorced or separating from your partner, or when death or injury occurs.
As your legal team at Newcastle Legal, we help you through those periods by providing you with the best advice at an affordable price.
Legal Advice and Strategy Sessions
Providing Legal Advice and Strategy Sessions for Interact Support clients.
The session is 90 minutes long and is designed to help participants understand their legal rights and obligations. Then the session moves on to a consideration of options and then finally a strategy to deal with your legal issue.
Sometimes the strategy is to attempt Family Dispute Resolution (FDR) mediation, sometimes it is to go to court and sometimes it might be to sit back and wait for the other person to initiate legal action if they want to. The advice is customised to your situation, budget and desired outcomes.
Please contact Interact Support to complete an Interact Support Client File and Family Doors Risk Screen document before contacting one of the law firms we refer to.
This ensures that you have all the information they need to understand your situation and to make the maximum use of the session.
