Helen 2


I am a senior lawyer with the firm.

I have dedicated my career to practising in all aspects of Family Law, including children’s issues, property settlements, financial agreements, mediations and court proceedings.

I am also experienced in wills and disputed estates, debt recovery, workers’ compensation and criminal law, and I have extensive experience appearing in the Federal Circuit and Local Courts on a range of matters.

I have a special interest in animal law and welfare issues, and I volunteer my time to various animal welfare groups.

Prior to joining Laycock Burke Castaldi, I worked for several years at another local Newcastle firm and prior to that was a Senior Legal Officer for the Department of Primary Industries.
