I am a Family Law Accredited Specialist and Collaborative lawyer, practising exclusively in family law.
Having been a lawyer since 2006, I have a commercial background and spent the early years of my career in commercial litigation, construction law and property law, including international arbitration matters at a top tier firm.
My experience as a lawyer has made me acutely aware of the effect conflict has on a person’s life, on their family, and their health and career. I assist my clients to avoid unnecessary conflict by using methods of dispute resolution including mediation, and collaborative practice. However, if the matter is unable to be resolved I am well equipped to represent my clients in arbitration or litigation.
My clients regularly include small to medium size business owners and high net worth individuals. I have a keen interest in complicated business and tax structures.
I also have significant experience in complex parenting matters where there are issues of domestic violence, risk to the safety of the client or children, and relocation issues.
I am committed to assisting my clients to resolve matters in a collaborative and amicable manner, and to the growth of a collaborative approach to resolving Family Law matters in Queensland. For several years I served as a board member of the Queensland Association of Collaborative Practitioners.
I am dedicated to assisting my clients to avoid unnecessary conflict, feel empowered and rebuild their lives in the way they would like.
