Since coming to the Bar I have practised primarily in Family Law in both property and children matters.

I have developed a sound understanding of the workings of the Family Court of Australia and will continue to expand my practice into complex property and financial matters in this jurisdiction.

Other areas include equity/commercial including corporations and contractual disputes and taxation matters. I also appear in the criminal jurisdiction.

I have appeared in various courts, both as primary counsel and having been led, including Family Court of Australia, Supreme Court of NSW, District Court and Local Courts.

My pro bono work has included appearing as duty barrister in a variety of matters and as well as appearing in both civil and criminal matters.
