Justin McCartney

Partner at Lawler Draper Dillon, Chartered Accountants

“I believe a man has got to know his limitations.  Through my years of study, practical experience and accumulation of a network of quality service providers, I am confident I, or somebody close at hand, can successfully resolve most family business challenges”.

Justin McCartney1My public practice accounting career includes time spent with KPMG and Pitcher Partners.  I was approached to join Lawler Draper Dillon in 2001 and was admitted to the partnership in 2002.

I Have over twenty five years of experience in the Business Advisory Services area.  I advise to small to medium size businesses and their owners.  Many of these businesses are family owned and operated.

My knowledge extends beyond the accounting, tax and succession needs of the business to the personal tax, superannuation and estate planning needs of the family and its members.  One of my greatest attributes is providing clients with ‘peace of mind’.

To enhance my knowledge of family business, i have completed the Family Business Australia adviser accreditation.  I then became more heavily involved with Family Business Australia culminating in sitting on the Victorian Advisers Committee and the Victorian Executive Committee.
