I joined the Life Law team in 2016 after many years of legal practice on Brisbane’s bayside in the challenging areas of Family Law, Domestic Violence and Criminal Law.
As a senior lawyer admitted to practice in the Supreme Court of Queensland and the High Court of Australia and having experience across a variety of jurisdictions, I am well placed to assist you in matters involving complex parenting disputes, recovery applications, property settlements and financial agreements.
Whilst comfortable advocating for my clients in the courtroom, whenever possible I assist clients to avoid Court where appropriate and work with you to reach lasting and workable agreements through negotiations or mediation with high rates of success. I am also experienced in assisting clients in collaborative negotiations where we get together through round table conferencing which is a non-litigious, convenient and cost effective way to resolve less complex matters.
If you have a police issue, I can help you. If you are being interviewed by police or you are facing allegations that you have committed a crime or breached an order or bail condition, I have assisted many clients with the full spectrum of criminal matters including assaults, drug and traffic matters. I regularly assist clients with Police interviews, representing clients on Bail Applications, Licence Applications (both Special Hardship and Restricted Licence Applications).
I am a member of the Family Law Practitioners Association, Family Law Section of the Law Council of Australia and the Queensland Law Society.
