Senior Associate
Senior Asso­ciate, Fam­i­ly Law

As an Accred­it­ed Spe­cial­ist in Fam­i­ly Law, with a Mas­ter of Laws focus­ing on fam­i­ly law and relat­ed mat­ters, I have the exper­tise to deal with all issues which arise from the break­down of rela­tion­ships. I am ded­i­cat­ed to pro­vid­ing direct, prag­mat­ic advice to my clients, with the aim to facil­i­tate an ear­ly res­o­lu­tion to their mat­ter, where possible. 

Hav­ing pre­vi­ous­ly worked in the Fed­er­al Cir­cuit Court, and hav­ing had sig­nif­i­cant lit­i­ga­tion expe­ri­ence in my prac­tice, I am also well able to rep­re­sent clients in con­test­ed Court pro­ceed­ings, when necessary. 

As an expe­ri­enced prac­ti­tion­er I am sen­si­tive to the stress­es involved in fam­i­ly law dis­putes. I aim to enable clients to get on with their lives as quick­ly as pos­si­ble, often engag­ing appro­pri­ate mul­ti­disciplinary experts and sup­ports, such as clin­i­cal psy­chol­o­gists, both to sup­port clients and their chil­dren, and to work towards a suc­cess­ful out­come for all involved.

Expe­ri­ence

I have more than ten years’ expe­ri­ence in Fam­i­ly Law, hav­ing worked in the Fed­er­al Cir­cuit Court as a Judge’s Asso­ciate, pri­or to enter­ing into pri­vate practice. 

I have a thor­ough under­stand­ing of com­plex par­ent­ing and prop­er­ty dis­putes, inclu­sive of mat­ters involv­ing third par­ties, and the abil­i­ty to work with prac­ti­tion­ers from oth­er legal spe­cial­ties, where mat­ters require this. I have exper­tise where one (or both) par­ties reside out­side of Aus­tralia, and am hap­py to work with clients who reside overseas.
