I joined Dunwoodie Legal as a legal secretary in 2010 whilst undertaking a combined law and finance degree at UTS. Initially, my workload comprised of mostly reception and administrative duties but has increased greatly over the past seven years.
Given that I have the privilege of working one on one with a principal solicitor, my skill set, knowledge and experience have been widened immensely. Under Ian’s guidance, I have drafted wills, contracts for sale of land and business, leases and various other legal documents. I have also had the opportunity to deal with a wide range of clients with varying needs and assist Ian with solving their problems with my legal research skills.
I undertook the practical experience component of my Practical Legal Training under the supervision of Ian Dunwoodie.
Since July 2014 I worked full time as Ian’s paralegal and started to take on more responsibility, develop client relationships and refine my legal skills.
As of February 2017, I am a lawyer at Dunwoodie Legal and focus on complex estate planning, self-managed superannuation funds, as well as other more general matters.
