CLEON Legal is a specialised Domestic Violence Law Firm and a boutique Family Law Firm. We specialise in Domestic Violence because our Principal Lawyer has extensive knowledge, training, and expertise in this practice area.
We are based in the tropics of Townsville, North Queensland, however, we service clients throughout Australia. Our lawyers regularly travel interstate to meet with clients, attend mediations, or attend court appearances.
Chrissy Leontios is the Firm's Principal Lawyer and Chrissy strives to make a difference in every person’s life that she meets and works with; no act of kindness is too small.
Chrissy is driven by working towards making the world a better place by advocating for human rights, gender equality, civil liberties, and promoting for all to actualise their goals, dreams, and freedoms.
Chrissy travels the world teaching, inspiring and speaking at events about practical skills for family lawyers, trauma informed ‘lawyering’, and teaching family lawyers how to deal with domestic violence in their work.
CLEON strives to create a safe and calm environment for our clients, as we recognise the trauma and stress that clients are experiencing when they require the services of lawyers. Our ultimate goal is to create a trusting and close relationship between our CLEON Legal team and all of our clients.
We assist clients in Domestic Violence matters and Family Law matters for both parenting and property. Our practice largely deals with complex parenting matters, where there is risk to children, a history of domestic or family violence, abuse, trauma and high conflict. We also assist grandparents, and aunties and uncles in the process of applying for Parenting Orders for the care, welfare, and the development of children.
We pride ourselves on our hard work and our very personal level of service; always ensuring we make our clients feel valued, important, and safe.
Our ultimate approach in Family Law is to ensure we do not create more conflict or damage to families, and to create legal and pragmatic solutions in the least stressful and most efficient, cost effective, and supportive way possible.
