About Sarah

I am an Accredited Mediator who practices exclusively in the MST Lawyers’ family law team. Prior to becoming a lawyer, I worked as a legal secretary for over 15 years in various areas of the law before deciding to follow a career as a lawyer. This experience has provided me with a varied knowledge which can assist in dealing with family law negotiations.

I was admitted to practice in March 2011 and since this time has primarily worked in family law. I have experience in all aspects of family law and Family Violence Intervention Orders and a a special interest in parenting matters including complex matters, parenting arrangements, and what is in the best interests of the children. I acknowledge the effect that a family law matter can have on a person and I  demonstrate empathy and understanding in my approach. I also have experience in complex and other property and financial matters, relocation applications, contravention applications, family violence including Child Protection involvement.

My experience in the legal industry spans over 25 years and with a focus on reaching a resolution in an efficient and cost-effective manner, I will often look to alternate dispute resolution methods such as family dispute resolution, mediation and negotiation to resolve matters. I have a keen interest in collaborative law and providing assistance and mentoring young lawyers.

I am also available to assist with your dispute as a mediator.
