I was initially admitted as a solicitor in Queensland in 2001 after having completed a two-year articles of clerkship with Murdoch Lawyers, and was admitted to the High Court of Australia in 2002.
I have been working as a solicitor for over 17 years and exclusively as a family relationships lawyer for over 12 years of that time. Given my many years of experience in the family law space, I understand the stresses brought on by separation and I am committed to assisting people pragmatically and with empathy.
I have a particular passion for working with people to help them understand and move through the legal aspects of their separation to set them on a path toward a new start.
I specialise in assisting people with complex parenting and financial matters during and after a separation. I frequently assist parents to implement arrangements that enable them to effectively care for their child/children after a separation. I also work with people to finalise property settlements involving high-net worth matrimonial pools and complex company and trust structures..
Where appropriate, I work together with my clients’ existing psychologists, accountants, financial planners, brokers and other professionals to ensure the relevant expertise is at hand when required to drive the best possible outcome.
Prior to being a family relationships lawyer I also practiced in the areas of personal injuries, insurance law and commercial litigation.
I have worked in legal practices in Brisbane, Toowoomba, London and Sydney since becoming a solicitor. Having worked in other areas of law and in different and diverse locations I am equipped with the skills necessary to deal with a wide breadth of legal matters and work comfortably with people from many different backgrounds and lifestyles.
Outside of work, my husband and I are approved foster carers and we enjoy and find fulfillment in helping children in care where we can, whilst also caring for our young son.
