Eliza Fitzgerald

Associate

Eliza graduated with a Bachelor of Laws from the University of Notre Dame in 2016, and while studying, worked for a prominent criminal lawyer and volunteered at various community legal centres.

After graduation, Eliza worked as a Research Associate for a trial Magistrate at the Family Court of Western Australia. Whilst working at the Court, she also completed a Graduate Diploma in Legal Practice at the College of Law, was admitted to practice in the Supreme Court of Western Australia and started her Masters of Law (Family Law).

Eliza joined O’Sullivan Davies in 2019 and practices in all areas of family law, having particular interest third party financial matters and child-related proceedings involving interstate and international relocation. Since joining O’Sullivan Davies, Eliza has completed her Masters, graduating in 2020.

Eliza goes above and beyond to ensure clients feel supported and well-informed whilst they are making some of the most difficult (yet important) decisions of their lives. She prides herself on her attention to detail, and ability to find creative solutions to complex challenges faced by her clients. Eliza believes each client is unique and therefore never takes a “one size fits all” approach to their case.

Eliza has been recognised for the contribution she makes to pro-bono matters, receiving a Pro Bono Hero award from Law Access in 2020. Eliza is a member of the Family Law Practitioner Association (WA) publications subcommittee and is a volunteer at the Women’s Legal Service Clinic.

Naturally curious, Eliza likes to travel to learn about new places and cultures and has her sights set on Central and South America when international travel resumes. A former tennis coach, Eliza likes cooking, pinot noir and chocolate, often all together.

What clients have said about Eliza:

Eliza, thank you for all your support and expertise yesterday in finalising the settlement. What a momentous task but we got there in the end. I slept exceptionally well after such a big day and now that the settlement is resolved.
