Chris has a general practice including summary crime, civil and family law, Childrens’ Court (both Criminal and Family Divisions), and administrative law. She also has experience in common law and County Court Chambers.

Given her background Chris has a profound understanding of the problems associated with families in crisis in the areas of family breakup, childrens protection issues, guardianship and administration, and criminal law in particular young offenders. Her experience and observations after 10 years working in large medical centres has kindled an interest in medical negligence. It has provided Chris with a sensitivity and understanding of personal injury and trauma related problems and the operations of large hospitals in the provision of medical services.
