Daphne is the Co-Chair of the Family Law Committee of the Law Society of South Australia and has been ranked in Doyles Guide as a “Family Law Rising Star” in South Australia for four consecutive years.

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.

Daphne combines empathy with a pragmatic approach to resolving matters and achieving effective solutions. She provides practical and realistic advice to clients and ensures they are aware of all possible options and outcomes at every stage of their matter.
