Senior Family Lawyer

  • Family Law

I was born and raised in the Hunter region but moved away to complete my Law Degree. 

When I finished University in 2006, my husband and I travelled through Far North Queensland and the Northern Territory. We decided to make a ‘short stop’ in Darwin, but we loved it so much we ended up staying there for over 3 years!

My first job as a lawyer was in Darwin working as a general practice lawyer, and it was here that my love of Family Law was sparked. 

I returned to the Hunter in 2009, and started working at Thomas Mitchell Solicitors, which was later incorporated by Mason Lawyers. Since returning to the Hunter I have worked exclusively as a family lawyer.

In 2022, I became an Accredited Specialist in Family Law. I am very proud to have been recognised by my peers, it is an recognition that less than 5% of Lawyers ever receive.

In 2022, I was appointed to the panel of Independent Childrens Lawyers, The role is challenging but rewarding. It gives me great satisfaction to know that I can make a real difference in the lives of vulnerable children. 

“Every family is different, and I enjoy the challenge of trying to figure out the best possible outcome for each of my clients.”

When it comes to family law. I strive for a result that is fair and reasonable and achieved by doing as little damage to an existing co-parenting relationship as possible. In litigation you either win or lose, and your relationship with your opponent is over. In family law the case finishes, but often parties are forced to communicate for years to come. I keep this at the forefront of my advice to clients.

I am proud of the work I have done for my clients over the years, I have received some wonderful feedback over this time, but I can say the thing that makes me most happy is to see a client blossom from a broken shell of a person to a person with dignity and an ability to control their own future.  

“Don’t raise your voice, improve your argument.”

On a personal note. I am a wife and mother of young children. When I am not acting as a taxi to my children, you will find me at the beach, or visiting friends and family. 

I love to read and listen to audiobooks. If you have any good recommendations, let me know!
