Prior to practicing as a solicitor Rosemary worked in the human rights policy area, particularly in relation to the rights of older people such as the elimination of age discrimination, compulsory retirement and nursing home bonds. Her early legal practice included native title and refugee claims as well contested estates and Rosemary continues to act for people from diverse economic and cultural backgrounds.
Rosemary understands that each individual's situation is unique. She also understands that grief, trauma and stress can occur following the death of someone close and she has the life and professional experience and ability to act with sensitivity.
Rosemary applies her extensive experience in acting for executors, administrators, beneficiaries and other persons close to the deceased to focus on the result sought and the best way to achieve it. She enables her clients to make informed choices all along the way. In contested estates, she has the expertise to guide clients through mediations to reach settlements in what might otherwise have been complex and expensive court hearings as well as to act in those hearings where necessary.
Rosemary was admitted to practice in 1999 and holds a Bachelor of Laws and a Bachelor of Arts in Social Sciences.
