Deano Simonidis


Deano is the managing Director of Simonidis Steel lawyers. From the commencement of operations in 2001, Deano has expanded the firm to the Gold Coast and more recently to Brisbane’s Northside to cater for a growing clientele.

Practicing Family Law for 26 years, Deano has been Accredited by the Queensland Law Society as a Family Law Specialist due to both his experience and credentials in the field. It is no surprise that the hard work of Deano and the firm collectively were recognised by the prestigious Doyle’s Guide as a ‘Leading’ and ‘recommended’ Family Law firm in the years 2017 and 2018.

On a personal level, clients work closely with Deano and experience a down to earth and charismatic lawyer who is passionate about his field as well as attaining the best result for his clients. Distinct from his competitors, Deano often has a ‘one step ahead approach’ and is praised for his ability to challenge and change what others would view as expected outcomes.

Deano’s role within the firm includes providing strategy advice to clients and where possible acts as a Court Advocate. His work frequently requires him to travel for Court and Mediations matters both interstate and to North Queensland. Within the firm, Deano mentors the firm’s solicitors and is involved at a high level during each stage of a client’s matter.

While not working, Deano looks forward to spending time with his family and being out on the water.
