Amanda was admitted as a lawyer in early 2001.
Since her admission, Amanda has gained experience in a variety of fields including conveyancing, family law, complex deceased estate matters and insurance litigation. After spending time working in both mid-sized and large city-based firms, Amanda moved to KLH & Associates to expand her knowledge of general practice and chose to specialise in family law matters in early 2007. Amanda became an Accredited Specialist in Family Law in November 2015.
Amanda enjoys working with individuals and families to resolve their legal issues and gains personal satisfaction from seeing a matter through to completion, with a successful outcome for her client. She has considerable experience in all aspects of family law and currently works on matters that include separation and divorce, property settlements, and children’s issues. Her previous experience in litigation allows her to confidentiality advise and represent her clients in a court-based situation.
In addition to family law matters, Amanda also assists clients with their estate planning needs, providing advice and assistance to clients with their Wills, Enduring Powers of Attorney and Enduring Guardianships. She assists Executors in all aspects of estate administration and also undertakes litigation in relation to deceased estates. Amanda is able to provide detailed advice to clients on their eligibility to make a claim against an estate in the first instance, as well as how to best proceed with a claim. She also works closely with the Executor of an estate, or family members of the deceased, to successfully defend a claim by another party.
