After studying law at the University of Adelaide between 1984 and 1987, Lisa worked as an Associate to His Honour Justice Walsh of the Supreme Court in WA for 2 years, completed her degree and then undertook an articles clerkship at Phillips Fox in Perth where she gained invaluable experience in Commercial Litigation, Insurance, Property and Family Law.
Since 1995 Lisa has worked solely in the area of Family Law both in Queensland and South Australia in both children and property matters. She is skilled at assessing her client’s needs and has experience in dealing with domestic violence allegations and issues arising from changes made to the Family Law Act (1975) in the past few years regarding shared parental responsibility and shared care arrangements. Her commercial experience has allowed her a unique insight into the financial aspects of separation and she has significant experience in managing large property settlements and complex matters.
Lisa is proud to say that the majority of matters she deals with settle amicably with the assistance of alternative dispute resolution and negotiation. However, when it is necessary to continue through to the trial stage she is able to provide a very efficient and cost effective service.
