I was excited to join the Life Law team this year as a Law Clerk prior to my admission as a Solicitor in the Supreme Court of Queensland in November 2020. Last year I graduated my dual degree of Bachelor of Laws / Bachelor of Social Science from the University of the Sunshine Coast. I work alongside Fraser Murray assisting family law clients dealing with parenting, property and child protection matters. Each day is different and I get a great deal of personal satisfaction assisting people that are going through a difficult stage in their life. I am particularly passionate about assisting clients to navigate their family law matters without having to resort to the intervention of the courts. As a firm, we believe that the best way to resolve a dispute is by working collaboratively with both parties to achieve a mutually beneficial result. In saying this, sometimes it is not possible to avoid litigation and where this is necessary we will work with you and support you during this process. I am a member of the Queensland Law Society, Sunshine Coast Law Association, the Family Law Section of the Law Council of Australia and Family Law Practitioners Association.
