Socials and Web
I am a principal solicitor and nationally accredited mediator. As one of the founding partners of Stellan Family Law, I practice primarily in Victoria, Northern Territory and in the Pilbara region of Western Australia. The practice focuses on Family Law, Intervention/Restraining Orders, Wills and Estate matters and Criminal Injuries Compensation.
Formally trained in collaborative practice, whenever possible I resolve the issues that arise from the breakdown of relationships including married, de facto and same sex couples, without resorting to litigation. I find it rewarding working as part of a team in an empathetic and supportive environment knowing the collaborative process is the best way to assist my client move forward with their life. Developing creative and flexible solutions in a timely and cost efficient manner is what most separating couples want. Alternately, if litigation is the only option, I assist clients in the most pragmatic manner possible to obtain the best outcome for them.
I understand the unique challenges that working in remote areas present and work closely with lawyers in Darwin, Sydney, Perth and the Sunshine Coast. I value the opportunity technology provides in allowing this to occur.
