Elizabeth is a Director and lawyer assisting guiding clients through the legal challenges clients face in the areas of family law, domestic violence and criminal law.
With nearly two decades of experience, she seamlessly blends her legal insight with a practical and compassionate approach, offering invaluable support to clients navigating the challenging aftermath of relationship breakdowns. Her expertise and dedication have earned her recognition as a Doyle’s Guide Recommended Leading Toowoomba, Darling Downs, and Western Queensland Family and Divorce Lawyer for multiple consecutive years, from 2020 to 2023. This esteemed recognition is a testament to her excellence and unwavering commitment to her clients.
Elizabeth's genuine passion lies in helping people find solutions, particularly outside the courtroom. She firmly believes in empowering her clients to take control of their situations and reach agreements through collaboration, negotiation and mediation. Witnessing her clients transform, regaining their independence and confidence throughout their legal journey, is a source of immense satisfaction for her. The physical relief displayed by clients as they make pivotal decisions and finalise agreements is a sight she cherishes.
While Elizabeth actively encourages out-of-court resolutions, she is well-versed in representing her clients in Court when necessary. Her extensive courtroom experience equips her with the skills needed to protect her clients, their children, and their financial security post-separation. Throughout Court proceedings, she is dedicated to exploring every opportunity for resolution where her clients have a say in the outcome, rather than having a decision imposed upon them by the court.
Elizabeth's life experience extends beyond her legal career. As a daughter of a single parent, a wife, and mother, she possesses a deep understanding of the complexities involved in helping clients transition into new family dynamics after separation. This empathy and insight enable her to work effectively towards the best possible outcomes for her clients.
Elizabeth was admitted as a solicitor of the Supreme Court of Queensland in 2005. She has also been admitted to practise in the High Court of Australia since 2007.
