Associate Lawyer / Family Law

Selena was admitted as a solicitor in 2006 and is driven by the ability to assist her clients with practical and realistic advice, while supporting them through what is often an extremely difficult time in their life. 

She understands the benefit of mediation and negotiation, allowing her to achieve the best possible outcome for her clients in a cost effective manner. She is approachable and has a wide range of skills to suit individual clients’ needs and circumstances.

Selena trained in conveyancing, property law, minor crime and general advices before quickly developing a passion for family law. She now works exclusively in this area, providing advice on divorce, de facto, property settlements, matrimonial settlements, child support and custody issues and domestic violence.
