I have a varied legal career including work in private practice and local government – my experience has given me unique skills to offer you in your family disputes. I have diffused some of the worst conflicts between people using my natural abilities and passion for working things out.
My experience in the Family Law Courts can assist you in finding the best result for you and your individual circumstances. I find that when a fresh, neutral view is introduced, parents can reach outcomes that otherwise they may not.
I offer a personalised approach that will help you and your family to find the best for you.
Qualifications and Experience
I was admitted to practise as a solicitor in 2000. I have a double degree in Science and Law and worked as a Geologist prior to my seventeen years in the legal profession in many areas of law including Government, Planning and Environment and contracts.
I have always preferred to practise law in a more conciliatory way than the traditional approach. For you this means I will do all I can to provide workable solutions for you.
My work in private practice has given me a great passion for families and the impact that parents’ interactions with each other affect children, and in turn their children. I see our children as our future, one worth putting all of our hard-won wisdom into, in a positive way.
I am committed to further education and training to constantly improve my role and provide the best service based on up to date information. I can now offer mediation in any matter, not just family disputes.
