Originally from Sydney, where I spent the early years of my legal career, I am a resolution-focussed family lawyer based in Brisbane CBD.
My background is in complex litigation for high net worth clients. Having completed my Masters in Family Law, I have a particular focus on complex financial disputes, including property settlement and spouse maintenance issues. I also have extensive experience in complex parenting matters, including parental alienation issues and children with unique needs.
I am currently serving on the committee of the Queensland Association of Collaborative Practitioners. As a collaboratively-trained lawyer, I encourage my clients to take a positive approach towards problem-solving and to focus on reaching a resolution with dignity and ownership.
There are many pathways to reach an agreed resolution, including collaboration, negotiation, round-table conferences and mediation. Whilst the majority of my clients are able to resolve their family law issues via these methods, there are cases where litigation is necessary. Even when my client’s dispute is occurring in the litigation arena, my approach remains positive and pragmatic.
I provide thorough, strategic and realistic legal advice in a positive, efficient, cost-effective and friendly way, and I consider it a privilege to guide my clients through such a challenging part of their lives.
