Profile

I am a Partner at HopgoodGanim Lawyers where I  co-head the family law practice and the HG Private Resolution Centre. I am an  Accredited Specialist (Family Law), a Nationally Accredited Mediator and  Accredited Family Dispute Resolution Practitioner.  

As the former President of Queensland  Collaborative Law - the peak body for collaborative law in Queensland - I am  proud of the contribution I have made to the development of collaborative  practice in Australia. I continue to represent the organisation as a  committee member and I am also a board member of the national peak  collaborative body, Australian Association of Collaborative Professionals.

I am a compassionate and thorough adviser and  dispute-resolver and aim to deliver exceptional outcomes for my clients. I  have been recognised as a Leading Australian Family and Divorce Lawyer and  Leading Family Lawyer (High Value and Complex Property Matters) by Doyle’s  Guide, 2018 (Queensland) and 2019 (Brisbane).
