Hi, I’m Tessa,


Family and Relationship Lawyer

Family and Relationship Lawyer

When love and money collide, I help women understand, advocate for and protect their legal interests.

I am incredibly passionate about educating women in relation to their finances and rights as they relate to family law issues which not only deal with divorce, children’s care arrangements or the division of assets, but also planning their finances from the beginning to end of a relationship. It is important that women understand how the family law process works and are able to establish their finances in a way that will protect them if a separation did occur in the future. This can be done in many ways and forward planning is the key to ensuring that the financial impact of a separation is minimised.
