Dispute Resolution

Sarah was appointed as a Deputy District Judge in March 2019 and regularly determines a full range of private law children matters.  Due to this appointment and her decade of experience at the Family Bar, Sarah is ideally positioned to advise clients as to realistic outcomes and strategic approaches in all private law matters ranging from the most complex and those involving international elements right through to those at the other end of the spectrum.

In private law matters, Sarah regularly deals with the most contentious cases at all stages of proceedings. She is an established advocate in cases involving internal and external relocation issues, domestic violence, changes of surname, parental alienation, committal proceedings and particularly vulnerable clients.  She has considerable expertise in cases which have a protracted history or have reached a stalemate where finding a new approach is crucial. Sarah also is known for her clarity of thought and her confidence in her approach to each case.
