Bernadette is an accredited specialist in Family Law with the Law Society of NSW and has practised exclusively in family law since 1998. She promotes a positive path in resolving family law matters where that is possible. She is trained in collaborative law enabling her to provide solutions to many types of family law issues without going to Court, however she is equally adept at achieving a client’s objectives in Court.

She is comfortable in representing and supporting clients in complex property matters involving trusts, companies and where assets are held overseas. She is also regularly appointed as a separate representative for children (known as an Independent Children’s Lawyer) where she appears in Court for children of all ages in both the Family Court of Australia and the Federal Circuit Court.

Bernadette is a member of the Specialist Accreditation Family Law Advisory Committee, which is charged with the responsibility of assisting and overseeing other family lawyers in gaining their accreditation.

When not at work Bernadette enjoys walking her old Border Collie “William Shakespeare”. Therefore, it should not be a surprise that she is an avid attender of productions by the Sydney Theatre Company. She enjoys travelling overseas to visit her four children and grandchild and she is also a self confessed book club tragic.



Thank you so much for all your organisation and support last Thursday. Your guidance has been invaluable to me. I am incredibly happy with the outcome thus far and so grateful to have you representing me.



Thank you so much for all of your help in once again protecting my family and once again representing me. I am forever grateful for everything you have done for me.



Dear Bernadette, Christmas is here again! Everyday seems to just fly by. But I’m grateful for every moment, especially since my kids are virtually always close…thanks to you.



Dear Berni, Many thanks! As I said many times, from my heart, appreciate your work! Happy new Year!



I simply wanted to say thank you for your prompt professional finalising of my matter.





where to next?

Taking the next step and contacting a family lawyer can be scary. Our lawyers will make you feel comfortable so you can talk about your situation. But first, ask yourself, Do I really need a lawyer?
