Lazaros has a reputation as a pragmatic, straight talking and, when necessary, combative advocate. Growing up in a large and boisterous family, the legal career path was a natural progression. His family’s legal connection is so vast that it is rumoured that his ancestors were the legal advisers to Pericles, Alexander the Great and Socrates!
Lazaros completed his Bachelor of Laws and Bachelor of Commerce degrees in 2004, and Master of Laws in 2011, all at the University of Melbourne.
Lazaros has been in legal practice since being admitted in October 2005. On a daily basis, he practices in Family Law, Wills and Deceased Estates (including Superannuation Death Benefits), Property Law, Family Violence and Intervention Orders. He regularly appears in Court as solicitor advocate.
Lazaros is proud of the rapport he has developed with his clients, and insists on being the sole contact from the initial consultation through to completion (that is, he does not “handball” your file to anyone else). He takes time to understand your needs and objectives as his client. Because of this commitment to you, almost all of his work is referred from former clients, as well as other solicitors and business colleagues.
Outside of the law, Lazaros is a Real Madrid FC fanatic and horse racing enthusiast. He also enjoys Australian and Japanese whiskey. Otherwise, all his time is spent with his family and friends.
