With over 15 years experience in Law, including 12+ years of professional practice (6 of those years at partner level), I have been exposed to more disputes than I can count.
Both in court and out, I have come to never underestimate the power of emotions and principles when people feel they have been wronged. I have worked with some of the country’s best Barristers and Senior Counsel to fight the fight on behalf of my clients, and I have long standing professional relationships with many.
The types of disputes I can help you with include:
Building and Construction
misleading and deceptive conduct
+ Working Together
Whether you are on the verge of a dispute that needs to be resolved before it turns into something bigger, or if you are embroiled in ongoing court proceedings and need some help or a fresh perspective, I can offer you objective, clear and measured advice which takes into account the potential time and cost that can be associated with resolving things sooner rather than later, versus drawing it out through a protracted court case.
I can help you remotely through Zoom, Skype, Face Time or Phone, and if you do need face-to-face representation then we can discuss whether I will provide that, or whether one of the several lawyers across the country with whom I have a professional relationship, will be better placed to assist in that capacity.
Either way, I will help you navigate your way through what can often be one of the most unpleasant experiences you will ever have to encounter.
+ My Approach
My style of practice is a little different to most lawyers, combining a ‘Life & Law’ approach, with a genuine desire to be accessible to everyday people, and to add value to each one of my clients.
The practice of law is more than simply knowing the law and how it works - it is also about taking the time to get to know and understand my clients, their life circumstances, past experiences, long and short term goals and objectives.
I pride myself on thinking differently, being honest and direct, and providing crystal clear advice that will help achieve solutions that work. I am practical and open minded, and am results driven. I can tailor my approach to your needs, so that each time we communicate you can be sure I am adding value and we are moving things forward.
I don't procrastinate, and don’t believe in wasting time. If there is something to be done, I will get on and do it, so that you can go back to doing what it is you do best.
Consultations are 1 hour, and take place via Zoom, Skype, Face Time or Phone, whichever you prefer.
I will provide you with a Pre-Consultation Information Form that you can complete and return to me within 48 hours of our consultation, along with any additional documents that you would like to me see in advance.
My fees for a 1 hour consultation are $440.00. We may resolve your issue there, or we may map out a way forward for you.
There are several ways we can continue to work together. My service packages and fees are designed for everyday people, and will be tailored to your individual needs and budget.
My fees are not calculated on an hourly basis, and I don’t charge you in 6 minute blocks, or for taking your phone call or reading an email. I have designed my fee structures so that you know what you are getting from me, and you know what you are paying for, upfront, with no surprises.
My fee structures are fixed, and will be based on your individual circumstances, your specific needs, and the value I can bring to your situation. As things progress and change, what you need from me may change, and my fees may change. We will discuss this along the way, and you will always be aware of my fees ahead of time.
I will not agree to take on your matter if I am not satisfied that I can add value. To do so would be unfair to you, and would waste both your time and mine.

“I have been a litigator for 36 years, 11 years as a solicitor and partner of a large national firm and 25 years as a commercial and construction barrister appearing in all States and Territories. Over that time I have had the opportunity to work with and observe the professional development of a very great many young solicitors.
I first had the privilege of working with Tracey on a commercial dispute many years ago when she was still relatively inexperienced. Since then we have done many hard fought commercial cases together.
Perhaps the highest recommendation that I could give is that if I ever found myself in a situation where I was involved personally in a commercial dispute and needed legal representation, Tracey would be the first person I would turn to for assistance”.
