Peter Magee
Partner & Senior Family Lawyer

1300 168 676



Peter is a partner of Armstrong Legal and head of our Family Law Division. He has over 15 years’ experience.

In the past, Peter acted in a broad range of high profile cases, including cases involving some of Australia’s most wealthy people in matters involving close to $1 billion. He also acted in cases involving athletes in and out of the International Court of Arbitration for Sport, as well as some of Australia’s largest companies, both publicly listed and privately owned. These companies included major insurers and some household brands.

Even though he has been involved in high profile cases, over the last decade Peter has chosen to specialise in the area of family law. He says: “The reason for this is simple. I want to make a difference in people’s lives.”

His past experience dealing with large cases benefits his family law clients by providing insight into complex and tactical issues. As a result, Peter can often achieve settlements outside Court that may otherwise have not been achievable.

"In family law cases it is always best for people to agree as to how they will resolve things. Unfortunately, that is not always possible. I like my clients to know that they can rely on our expertise so that they don’t have to compromise what is important to them."

Peter gives practical advice as to what is achievable in any given situation and at what cost so that the client can make informed decisions and be in control of their future.

Peter has been admitted to the Supreme Court of New South Wales, the High Court of Australia, is a member of the Family Law Section of the Law Council of Australia and the Law Society of New South Wales. He has presented at legal seminars on family law and other areas. He was a former Young Lawyers Regional Delegate and a mock trial coach in the New South Wales high schools mock trial competition run by the Law Society of New South Wales.

When not at work Peter likes to follow the cricket, scuba dive and ride his motor cycle, although you are most likely to find him in the company of his wife and three young children.



Just over a year ago it was very hard to see an end to my court proceedings. However, the end finally came and you and your staff stood by me till the very end.

I'd like to take this opportunity to once again thank you for your enormous efforts and kindness to me and my children. Your work has meant that we are now finally free from a very horrible situation. Thanks to you and your hard work, and of course that of Kate and all the other staff who were involved, my children have stability and I'm now able to provide a happy and secure future for them.

During my seven years through the court system I have dealt with many lawyers and barristers, most of whom were nothing short of vultures, unfortunately. You and your staff were always very professional despite some extreme circumstances and above all, always conducted matters with the utmost integrity.

I cannot thank you enough for all you have done for me, but please know that you have given a family that had almost no hope, the best hope for a new life and a great future for two precious kids.


I had worked all my life to build up the business and was just starting to see the benefits. My wife was bitter about the separation and did not want to have the business, she just didn't want me to have it. I couldn't start again. Thanks to Peter I didn't have to.
