What's With The Cars?

Michelle says “I am passionate about property law, and about educating clients so that they understand how it affects them. I’m also passionate about my family, sport and cars – especially the MGB GT. I was once the proud owner of a green one called Bullfrog.

Our Vision

Michelle believes in empowering people by imparting an understanding of how the law affects them so that they can make good decisions about their property.

When Michelle transfers property, she attends to all conveyancing matters personally so that she knows exactly what it happening in each matter. She sends weekly reports to communicate the progress with all parties involved in the transaction.

When Michelle drafts antenuptial contracts for couples, she listens carefully to the whole context so that the couple are able to make appropriate plans for their property and serve their relationship aspirations.

As an experienced mediator, Michelle is able to help parties locked in a dispute regarding all types of property to reach a mutually beneficial outcome in a manner that is cost effective.

Lastly, when Michelle drafts wills and winds up estates, she helps people to think pragmatically while respecting the emotions that this field of law requires.
