Raised in the Mackay region, I joined Wallace & Wallace Lawyers as an article clerk in 1994 following my graduation from James Cook University. Admitted as a solicitor in 1996, I worked my way up through the firm to Associate, becoming a Partner in 2016 and now Managing Partner in 2022.
With over 27 years as a solicitor practising in commercial and property law, I have a broad range of experience enabling me to provide my clients with proactive legal advice on a range of commercial issues they face in the day-to-day operation of their businesses.
I act for a number of well-known, long established and leading businesses within the Mackay region and have done so for many years. I have a particular interest in rural transactions and in many instances am acting for the second or third generation of the same family. My expertise includes:-
- rural sales, purchases and leases
- subdivision and transfer of water allocations and other water entitlements
- business sales and acquisitions
- commercial and retail leasing
- negotiating and preparing contracts covering a wide and varied range of transactions
- personal estate planning
- business succession planning
Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my family and giving back to the community in my role on various school boards and P&F Associations.
