Cassandra Adorni-Braccesi

Cassandra Adorni-Braccesi


Prior to my admission, I was employed as a law clerk at a busy criminal law firm on the Gold Coast.  This gave me grounding and insight into the criminal law process from an early stage in my career.  I have been employed at Wallace & Wallace Lawyers since being admitted in late 2014.

Family and criminal law have been my practice areas since my admission.  I am passionate about these areas of law.  I often meet clients during the most stressful and confronting time of their lives.  I am empathetic and listen carefully to my client’s situation and their concerns.  I am upfront in my advice to ensure my clients have a thorough knowledge of the process and the likely outcome.  This helps my clients in making an informed decision about their matter.

I have appeared in the Family Court, the Federal Circuit Court, the Magistrates Court, the District Court, the Supreme Court and the Coroner’s Court on a regular basis throughout my career.  I am a confident advocate for my clients and I enjoy the unique challenges of appearing at Court.

Outside of work, I play netball competitively.  I am a member of Galaxy Netball Club, a supportive and friendly club in Mackay.  I enjoy hiking and have completed several long distance hiking trips.  If I am not at netball or hiking, you will generally find me baking or trying (this far unsuccessfully) to grow vegetables in my garden.
