Janelle has worked in the legal industry for 25 years and has working in family law as a Senior Paralegal for 14 of those years, gaining significant experience in complex children and financial disputes and settlements, honing her skills and acute attention to detail.
Janelle takes great pride in her work and is efficient, organised and highly motivated to achieve results for clients. She is firm, confident, and approachable, and has a kind and assuring manner that generates positive feedback from her clients and fellow colleagues.
She enjoys working in family law because of its personal nature and because no two days are ever the same. Sometimes in family law, it’s not a matter of winning or losing, but rather ensuring the parties can reach an agreement they can live with. She likes thinking creatively to find solutions and good outcomes for her clients, often taking proactive measures to help them transition into the next phase of their life.
Janelle seeks ways to broaden her knowledge and is currently studying a law degree part time. Not one to sit still, Janelle is a strong advocate for victims of domestic violence and is now on the Board of OVIS Community Services as a Vice Chairperson.
Janelle fills her spare time with productive activities and is training to become an avid cyclist. She enjoys weekends away, immersing herself in a great autobiography and keeping fit.
