Having always had a passion for the law, I completed my Diploma of Law with the Legal Practitioners Admissions Board while employed as a law clerk on the Far South Coast of New South Wales.
After graduating and upon being admitted as a Solicitor in the Supreme Court of New South Wales in 2009, I relocated to Queanbeyan. I immediately commenced practise in both New South Wales and the Australian Capital Territory. I gained experience in a wide range of legal fields under the supervision of experienced and reputable solicitors in a number of local firms.
Since admission, I have practised in New South Wales and the Australian Capital Territory and have appeared on behalf of clients in the Local Court of New South Wales, ACT Magistrates Court, District Court of New South Wales, the Supreme Courts of New South Wales and the Australian Capital Territory, the Federal Circuit Court of Australia and the Family Court of Australia.
I thrive in a small general practice environment and enjoy being able to provide personalised advice on a wide range of legal matters to clients.
I thoroughly enjoy practising in Queanbeyan and Canberra, meeting with my clients and assisting local businesses and organisations.
