(Brisbane based)

Tabitha holds a Bachelor of Laws (Honours) and a Bachelor of Arts (majoring in Religion and in Popular Music) from the University of Queensland. She also holds a Graduate Diploma in Legal Practice from the College of Law. Tabitha was admitted to legal practice in August 2022. Tabitha is also an accredited Mental Health First Aider, having completed a course with Mental Health First Aid Australia in 2023.

With just over 5 years’ experience working in Family Law, Tabitha is passionate about supporting people going through separation, divorce, and/or domestic and family violence. Tabitha is committed to providing clients with caring and compassionate counsel, pursuing legal excellence, and also giving useful and practical advice for families and individuals going through separation and divorce.

Some of Tabitha’s achievements in her family law work include:

  • Assisting a client to represent himself in a complex parenting and property matter at a Final Hearing in the Federal Circuit and Family Court of Australia, (including preparing all required Court material) resulting in the client receiving all the orders he sought.
  • Successfully negotiating a parenting plan at mediation which resulted in her client beginning to spend regular time with his young daughter after being unable to spend time with her for 8 months.
  • Obtaining a consent without admissions protection order for her client (the respondent) at the Brisbane Magistrates Court, despite assertions that the client had admitted to committing acts of domestic violence against his former partner.
  • Provided advice on the validity of an online Islamic Divorce under Australian Family Law, to assist a client with her immigration matter.

Tabitha also regularly volunteers with the Caxton Legal Centre as part of their family law evening advice sessions.

Tabitha is also a part of our Wills and Estates Team, and understands the importance of a well-drafted estate plan.  Tabitha knows that preparing a will can often be a daunting task, and she will work with you to make a plan that works for you.

Outside of practising law, Tabitha is heavily involved in her church as the chairperson of her church council, and a member of the Synod Standing Committee for the Uniting Church of Queensland. She also sings in her local choir, and closely follows the Queensland Reds and Brisbane Heat.
