Jennifer will proudly share with you that she was born and raised “in the bush”. Her family was living in Broken Hill when she was born and she has fond memories of growing up in this country town.
When you meet Jennifer one of the first things she will ask you is “would you like a cup of tea”. Jennifer loves her tea, Irish Breakfast is her favourite, and she prides herself of making a perfectly brewed cup. Having grown up in the bush she is a believer in the philosophy that a lot of problems can be helped by a chat and a cup of tea. Anyone who has seen Jennifer at our Capalaba office will agree that she makes a good cup of tea and she is a good listener.
Jennifer’s approach to resolving complex legal situations extends beyond just having a chat and a cup of tea. She is a highly experienced Lawyer having practiced exclusively in the areas of family law and estate law for the past 8 years. Her experience is backed by formal qualifications of an Associate Degree in Law, a Bachelor of Laws and a Graduate Diploma in Legal Practice and she is admitted to Practice in the High Court of Australia and the Supreme Court of Queensland. Some examples of matters that Jennifer has recently resolved include:
- A complex will dispute where a parent left insufficient provision for two adult children with significant health needs.
- A difficult parenting matter where two young children were left orphaned after their mother and father passed away and needed to be placed in the care of an aunt.
- A complex property and spousal support settlement between a husband and wife which involved a business interest with a third party
Jennifer is a strong communicator and presenter and she has presented information sessions on various family law and estate law topics to community groups. She has also presented a webinar on technical aspects of estate law to other lawyers within the legal profession.
