Senior Associate | Accredited Specialist, Family Law
Diploma Law (LPAB), Graduate Diploma Legal Practice
Fiona is a Senior Associate and has practised in family law almost exclusively since her admission as a lawyer.
Fiona has experience in all types of family law matters including divorce and complex parenting and property matters involving married and de facto couples.
Fiona’s key objective is to provide her clients with compassion and understanding during what is often a difficult time in their lives, combined with practical legal advice to suit their individual circumstances.
Where possible Fiona’s approach is to assist her clients to resolve their matter without resorting to litigation. However, in situations where this is not possible, Fiona is experienced in representing clients and regularly appears in the Federal Circuit Court of Australia and the Family Court of Australia in the Sydney and Parramatta registries.
Fiona is accredited by the Law Society of New South Wales as a specialist in Family Law. Specialist Accreditation is a structured peer to peer assessment process enabling legal practitioners to be recognised for their expertise. To be accredited, specialists must pass a series of meticulous assessments on both legal knowledge and its application in practice. To retain their accreditation, specialists must undertake significant additional professional development in their area of expertise each year.
Fiona is admitted to the Supreme Court of New South Wales and the High Court of Australia and is a member of the New South Wales Law Society, the Family Law Section of the Law Council of Australia and the Women Lawyers Association of New South Wales.
