Rowan Skinner is a family man who enjoys spending this spare time painting, gardening and educating his sons in the fine art of fast bowling. Rowan is married to his wife of 20 years and together they have two very large boys.
Rowan feeds his ability to ‘think outside the square’ through his special interests of painting and gardening. Although he concedes that he may not be the next Van Gogh or Costa Georgiadis, Rowan’s career spans nearly 30 glorious years in various legal roles including as a trial lawyer at the Victorian Bar, which he hopes brings some perspective to difficult legal problems.
Rowan’s parents went through an unpleasant separation and divorce when he was 20 and so he has personal experience of how divorce impacts on the separating parties and their children.
