Dianna Beaumont

Dianna is a Lawyer in our Family Law Team.

Biography

I am a family lawyer in the Murdoch Lawyers’ Brisbane Family Law team.

I commenced working at Murdoch Lawyers as a paralegal in the Toowoomba Family Law team whilst undertaking my practical legal training course. My time spent as a Family Law paralegal reinforced my desire to work in the area of Family Law.

I hold a Bachelor of Laws and a Graduate Diploma in Legal Practice, both from the Queensland University of Technology. I was admitted into practice in 2014 and have practised exclusively in the area of Family Law. I moved to Brisbane in 2016 and have worked in our Brisbane office since that time.

I have experience representing clients in both simple and complex property proceedings, including binding financial agreements and spousal maintenance applications, as well as a range of parenting matters.

I understand the emotional and financial pressures that accompany a relationship breakdown. Having been born in Rockhampton and initially practising in Murdoch Lawyers’ Toowoomba office, I have gained first-hand exposure to the challenges and pressures that can affect my clients who are based in regional areas.

My main priority is my clients’ interests and the welfare of their family, which in my experience is usually best served by a prompt resolution. I pride myself on providing my clients with a high level of service and practical commercial advice that is easily understood.

I am committed to achieving efficient and cost effective outcomes that best serve my client’s objectives.
