Biography

Selina joined Mellor Olsson in 2018, following a number of years working in a boutique family law practice.

Selina became an Accredited Specialist in family law under the Law Society of South Australia’s Accredited Specialist scheme in 2017.

She is a dedicated and compassionate lawyer, committed to achieving excellent outcomes for her clients in a cost effective manner. Her degree in Commerce gives Selina a distinct advantage when handling complex financial matters. She has developed a strong reputation for her expertise in child support and has drafted many binding and limited Child Support Agreements and has also successfully represented clients in relation to departure and child maintenance applications in the Federal Circuit Court.

Selina works closely with senior Barristers, both in Adelaide and interstate, on complex property settlement and parenting matters, involving the interplay of family law, civil and criminal jurisdictions, and third parties. She regularly acts for other interstate family lawyers as their town agent.

She is a collaboratively trained practitioner and uses these skills to assist parties to negotiate an outcome without proceeding to Court. When a negotiated outcome is not possible, Selina is a passionate advocate and highly experienced in representing clients throughout the entire Court process.

Selina is fluent in Greek and she lectures in family law for the College of Law and the University of South Australia.
