Modern Lawyer

Gillian heads up our Coffs Harbour office.

Having spent the last 3 years in government where she led a team administering complex estates, Gillian has returned to private practice with a refined knowledge framework and an eagerness to work with private clients once again.

Gillian brings empathy to her practice and is focused on preserving relations in the resolution of disputes, where possible.

Revered by the legal fraternity, Gillian is a former member of the Elder Law and Succession Committee for the ACT law society, where she contributed to the development of legislation and education to protect elderly and vulnerable members of the community.

Gillian is a self-confessed Wills and Estates tragic who finds satisfaction in harnessing her acute knowledge of the applicable legislation and case law to procure good outcomes for her clients.

Gil’s mantra is “conversations should be bridges, not battlefields” and she applies this in her dealings with other lawyers, to bring about innovative and prompt resolutions.

Real person

Gillian’s spirit animal is a fish and she knows her way around just about any water craft. By the ocean is where she feels most happy. A social extravert, Gillian is partial to a long lunch provided it does not compromise an early bedtime!
