Amy joined KPA Lawyers in 2020 as part of the firm's growing Family Law team and the Wills & Estates team.
Amy first graduated a Bachelor of Arts in 2007 and later completed her Bachelor of Laws in 2012. In 2021, Amy obtained a Masters in Applied Law (Family Law).
Amy practices predominantly in Family Law and Wills & Estates Law, but has worked in generalist firms throughout her legal career and brings to her practice a strong background in commercial law, business law and wills & estates law that gives her a multifaceted understanding of modern legal issues that clients are faced with.
In her practice as a family lawyer, Amy has experience in dealing with a wide range of complex parenting and financial matters including property settlements, spousal maintenance applications, third party intervener disputes, intervention orders, relocation applications, child support issues and preparing and advising on Financial and Child Support Agreements.
In her practice in the Wills & Estates team, Amy's experience means she is well positioned to provide in-depth advice not only as to the best way to deal with the succession planning itself, but also the ancillary matters that are often raised during the course of Will drafting such as asset protection. As an Estates litigator, Amy has acted on behalf of Estates as well as beneficiaries and claimants in Part IV Family Provisions claims.
As a strong and passionate advocate for her clients as not only a family & estates lawyer but also a general litigation lawyer. Amy has appeared in the Federal Circuit Court of Australia, Family Court of Australia, Magistrates' Court of Victoria, Supreme Court of Victoria, Fair Work Commission and the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal (both Civil & Human Rights divisions).
Amy is also a member of the Family Law Section of the Law Council of Australia and the Family Law Section of the Law Institute of Victoria.
