Alex Namisnyk

Solicitor – Special Counsel, Accredited Family Law Specialist, Collaborative Lawyer, Mediator

Alex Namisnyk has significant experience across a broad spectrum of family law issues, including divorce, parenting, high net-worth financial matters, pre-nuptial Binding Financial Agreements, complex jurisdictional matters, and parenting matters involving domestic and family violence.

He prides himself on his ability to guide clients through the family law process, regardless of the issues involved, and helping them move forward with dignity.  Most importantly, as a solicitor, Alex sees his primary role as, not to cause further conflict between the parties, but to find and generate practical and creative solutions that meet the needs of his client and centre the needs of the children. He prioritises communication with his clients throughout their matter, and consistently maintains the calm and empathetic manner for which he is known.

Alex joined ATW Family Law in 2012, after being admitted to practice as a Solicitor of the Supreme Court of NSW in 2011 and the High Court of Australia in 2012.  His interest in family law was formed while previously working as a graduate clerk with DLA Piper and as a Legal Associate to the Honourable Justice Rees at the Family Court of Australia, and his role at ATW Family Law allows him to practice exclusively in the field.

In 2019 Alex became an Accredited Specialist in Family Law and in 2019, 2020, 2021, 2022 and 2023, he was named as a “Rising Star” in Family Law in the prestigious Doyle’s Guide to the Legal Profession.  In recognition of Alex’s skills and experience, and the outcomes he achieves for clients, he was appointed as a Senior Associate to ATW Family Law in January 2021 and in December 2022, he was appointed as Special Counsel, increasing his leadership responsibilities within the firm.

Passionate about Collaborative Practice as an alternative to litigation, Alex has also completed additional training in mediation in 2015 and Collaborative Practice in 2018.  He uses this training to resolve client matters quickly and effectively, in a way that allows parties to maintain autonomy over the outcome of their matter, minimise conflict and move forward with their lives.  In 2022, Alex was appointed as a Committee Member to Collaborative Professionals NSW Inc, highlighting his long-term commitment to collaborative practice while also recognising his contribution to the profession.

Alex is on the Register of Practitioners of the High Court of Australia and the Supreme Court of New South Wales. He is also a member of:-
