Courtney has more than 10 years’ experience in family law in Canberra, including as a Family Law Director of a leading family law firm, prior to joining us to start our Canberra team. Courtney brings significant experience in dispute resolution, including being training in collaborative law. Courtney also runs complex parenting and property litigation.
Courtney works empathetically with clients to recognise their objectives and goals and will tailor their choice of process and case strategy to reflect this. Courtney approaches all aspects of her work constructively, with a view to facilitating an agreement and implementing an innovative solution before recommending litigation. She is also mindful that the impact of a relationship breakdown is far reaching and often involves clients dealing with non-legal issues.
Courtney is actively involved in her legal and local communities, including holding the position of secretary on the Canberra Region Family Law Professionals Association Committee, being a member of several legal bodies (including Collaborative Practice Canberra) and volunteering at a local community legal centre.
