About

Beth is a strong, experienced and down to earth advocate who accepts briefs in criminal, child protection and family law matters.  She invites both appearance based as well as written advisory briefs. Beth is an excellent negotiator and celebrates strengths in keen attention to detail, efficiency and organisation. She is a creative problem solver and digital native who is comfortable doing virtual appearances.

Beth started her legal career in the Latrobe Valley and welcomes country and circuit briefs. Beth is appreciative of the experiences of regionally based solicitors and is willing to travel to all Victorian Court locations.

In her criminal law practice Beth accepts both summary and indictable matters, funded privately or by legal aid.  In addition to this, Beth welcomes quasi-criminal matters including inquests and investigations.  Beth is pragmatic and direct in her communication and is dedicated to achieving the best results possible for her clients.

Family law is another area in which Beth has experience.  She accepts both legally aided and privately funded matters.  Beth has exceptional client engagement skills and is both sensitive and practical in her approach. She will act in property as well as parenting matters and appears in all stages of family law litigation.

Often found at the intersection of criminal and family law, Beth accepts IVO briefs including IVO mentions, contests and appeals.  Beth will appear in IVO matters connected to family law, crime and neighbourhood disputes.

Having experience in child protection matters means that Beth is well equipped to accept briefs where child welfare is under review. She accepts Children’s Court matters for both the Department as well as individual parties.
