Lucy prides herself in her excellence around managing complex matters between parties, high conflict and highly challenging parenting matters.
Lucy’s passion for family law started working at the ACT Legal Aid Office at the young age of 17. She spent 5 years there working with brilliant lawyers who moved on to become Judges and Magistrates, some of which currently work in the ACT Courts.
After taking a short break to raise her two children, she worked for a former ACT Chief Minister for 2 years but the road still led her back to family law.
While working at a larger Canberra family law firm for the last 16 years, Lucy acquired quite the taste for litigation. With her Italian background, she shows no fear and exudes confidence when fighting for her clients. Lucy also never stops thinking about strategies to deal with her client’s needs.
Along with her fearless nature, Lucy is also known for her ability to connect with her clients as people, to empower them to understand the process and to help resolve their issues by providing options and letting her clients own the process.
Lucy believes that Court should be your last resort to resolve your family law matter. There are so many other options for parties such as mediation or collaborative law. Whichever process you choose, Lucy can guide you through that space.
