In July 2015, my life was turned upside down. My little brother and best mate Justin died in a tragic surf accident. He was only 24.

Burying my brother is the hardest thing my family and I have ever had to do. We still miss him each and everyday.

At Cullen Lawyers we understand and appreciate that times can be tough. There is a sliver lining to the dark and tough times. We are here to help you through.

This is in remembrance of you my brother.
