What to expect
Our Principal Lawyer –
Family law, including the law of inheritance, is my passion.
I understand the immense stress and emotional challenges of a breakdown in a relationship, or the loss of a loved one.
I see myself as playing an important role in guiding people through these tough times and helping them navigate the legal system. I want to help people (as clichéd as that sounds).
I take a collaborative approach to litigation and try to resolve matters outside of court. However, I also have a wealth of litigation experience both in the Family Court, the Supreme Court and VCAT.
I have a particular interest in complex family law property settlements and helping people understand the intricacies of how their family wealth has been structured.
I am known as a queen of trusts! Family trusts, testamentary trusts, special disability trusts… I am your woman when it comes to trusts.
