love being able to bring peace of mind to my clients in overcoming legal concerns. With close to 20 years’ of expertise in Estates and Family Law, and a wealth of experience in Government, small business and large corporate positions I understand the importance of speaking plainly and keeping clients up to date and explaining the legal processes.
A particular strength is resolving complex property and children’s matters including successful recovery proceedings for children, paterity testing, mediations and contested final hearings.
Drawn out contested hearings do not help clients considering the additional stress and costs. A good, fair settlement can be better than lengthy proceedings with unpredictable results.
I have substantial experience in alternate dispute resolution however, should Court proceedings be appropriate, I am adept in representing clients in both State and Federal Courts, and Tribunals.
I am calm and methodical in handling what are often emotionally charged matters, I am results driven, and my clients benefit through my commitment to continued professional development and a genuine passion for law.
I have previously worked in a diverse range of practice areas including criminal law, employment law, estates law, franchising, litigation and property law but have decided to concentrate on family and estates law, areas from which I draw considerable professional satisfaction.
