Ioanita’s extensive litigation experience in Sydney, London and Auckland gives her a valuable perspective into commercial issues that are applicable in many family law property cases and enables her to negotiate settlements in complex matters.

Ioanita has a Masters Degree in Applied Family Law and post graduate qualifications in Family Provision Claims, from the College of Law in Sydney. She is a Collaborative Family Law practitioner and a member of the International Academy of Collaborative Professionals and the Collaborative Professionals NSW.
