director

modern lawyer
Probably the first thing you need to know about Sarah is that she’s seriously smart. So if you want someone clever helping you with one of the biggest challenges of your life, she’s a great choice.

Sarah is our go-to expert for financial agreements. She has a particular nous for difficult questions of law and is a natural strategist. Sarah’s passion is getting outcomes that work, most of the time by helping clients reach agreement but by fighting hard in court if that is what is needed. Those skills enable her to formulate settlement options that deliver better outcomes for her client and she is a master tactician in litigated cases. She is a formidable opponent in Monopoly, let alone family law disputes. Sarah always has an eye on the big picture and works with what matters to clients. That’s one of the reasons she’s passionate about collaborative law because even though she’s a technical lawyer she’s seen time and time again how it’s a better process that delivers better outcomes for clients no matter what the issues are or how difficult it seems. For Sarah collaborating isn’t about being soft, but it’s about being clever.

real person
Sarah loves food. All food. She travels to different places to try the food there and will eat just about anything, provided it’s not coloured orange. She knits in what spare time she has, knows her way around a 5 star hotel but also lived in a tent for a while. She’s a Melburnian through and through and is rarely seen wearing anything other than black. She reads literature and listens to hip hop, goes to the opera and watches trashy action films but has no time for reality television.
