Nicole was admitted as a lawyer in 2007 after completing a joint Bachelors degree in Law (majoring in Community Law) and Social Science (majoring in Criminology & Psychology) at the University of Western Sydney.

Whilst studying, Nicole worked for the South West Sydney Legal Centre in a role that exposed her to a variety of legal matters and clients.

During this time she developed an interest in the field of family law and after her admission as a solicitor she joined one of the largest specialist family law firms in the Nepean region.

Nicole went on to join a specialist family law firm in the Hills area, and later a boutique family law firm in the city where she developed her skills in property law.

Nicole completed her Masters of Applied Law (Family Law) with the College of Law in 2012 and was awarded the Sandra Paul Memorial Prize for Best Graduating Student.  In 2013, she successfully gained her accreditation as a specialist in Family Law.

With her significant experience across a range of family law issues, Nicole is able to assist clients with parenting issues, divorce, child support, property and financial settlements, and de-facto relationships. She has also developed expertise in the field of Superannuation and Property Adjustment in family law matters and has written articles for publication by legal publishers CCH on these particular issues.
