About Bron

Bron O’Loan is a passionate Divorce lawyer practising in Sydney, Australia as the Director of the boutique family law firm, O’Loan Family Law.

With an enthusiasm for helping people, Bron’s core focus is to guide her clients to get through the splits with their family relationships intact enough to ensure the kids are okay.

As well as her fancy lawyer job, Bron is a mum to three hungry, and often moody, teenagers, an avid writer and an ardent advocate of supporting domestic and family violence victims.

Bron wasn’t always a family lawyer.  In fact, upon leaving school, Bron loved the experience so much she became a primary school teacher. Since then, she has gone on to sell newspaper advertising, travelled around Australia and the world as  product manager and trainer for a large IT firm, was the author of a Masters’ Degree program for teachers, was a lecturer at Charles Sturt University and ran a successful online retail store.

In 2012 Bron commenced her journey into law as a mature age student and held fast to her view that empathy is the key and hugging clients is often necessary.  In 2016 Bron decided that a bit more study would do the trick and obtained a Masters in Family Law where she continued to hone her skills as a family lawyer.

After many years working under the tutelage of two very different but equally fierce and supportive family law mentors, and in the midst of a global pandemic, Bron founded O’Loan Family Law. She now manages a highly effective and intrepid team of likeminded legal eagles, who help to guide separating couples in reaching an amicable settlement.

Known for her ability to inspire, energise and collaborate, Bron is a well-respected member of the legal community. Upon meeting Bron or reading her book, The Splits – How to help your kids navigate separation and divorce, you will come away from the experience ready to take action and make positive changes to get yourself and your kids through the separation journey.
