Amanda was admitted as a lawyer in early 2001 after completing her Diploma in Law through the Legal Practitioners Admission Board.

Since her admission, Amanda has gained experience in a variety of fields including complex deceased estate matters and insurance litigation.  After spending time working in both mid-sized and large city based firms, Amanda moved to a suburban based role to expand her knowledge of general practice and chose to specialise in family law matters in early 2007.

Amanda enjoys working with people to resolve their family law 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 confidently advise and represent clients in a court-based situation, whilst her approachable and friendly manner makes it easy for clients to relate to her. Amanda's experience has recently been recognised by being appointed by the Law Society of NSW as an Accredited Family Law Specialist.

In addition to family law matters, Amanda also undertakes litigation in relation to deceased estates.  Her experience in this field, combined with her pragmatic approach, enables her to accurately advise 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.  Amanda can also work with the Executor of an estate, or family members of the deceased, to successfully defend a claim by another party.
