Prior to her admission as a solicitor in 2018, Nadine gained over four years’ practical experience as a Legal Assistant in family law. Nadine’s role as a Legal Assistant allowed her to develop a deeper understanding of complex family law issues whilst she assisted special counsel in both parenting and property disputes, including divorce applications, relocations cases and preparation for Interim and Final Hearings.
