Catherine is a specialist family lawyer. She has particular expertise working with regional clients undertaking a separation.


Catherine joined Mellor Olsson in 2012.

Her expertise is in complex matrimonial and de facto property disputes and children's issues. This includes both advising clients throughout the legal process and where an agreement cannot be reached, representing clients in disputes in the Family and Federal Circuit Courts.

With more people holding their retirement savings in Self Managed Superannuation Funds, Catherine has increasingly developed a practice in advising clients and working with their advisers on how to split these benefits in the event of a relationship breakdown.

Given her regional background, Catherine has particular expertise in property settlements involving family farms, trust and companies, as well as advising clients on the legal implications of relocating with children.

Catherine visits our Port Lincoln office where she still maintains a client base having previously practiced in the Eyre Peninsula for ten years. She began her legal career in 2000 at Jenkins Anderson in Port Lincoln before opening her own law firm in 2007 where she specialised in matrimonial and de facto property law and issues concerning children, representing clients from all over the Eyre Peninsula.
