In 2019, 2020 and 2021, Daphne was ranked in Doyles Guide as a “Family Law Rising Star” in South Australia. She takes pride in providing our clients with efficient and friendly service and support.

She is highly approachable and motivated to achieve the best possible outcome for our clients.

She has worked closely with our senior solicitors and predominantly with one of our family law principals, Jill Miller. As a result she has gained considerable experience in all aspects of family law and more particularly complex property settlements and children’s matters.
