I head the family law team at Thynne + Macartney and have nearly 20 years’ experience practicing in family law including with some of Queensland’s largest mid-tier firms.
I help clients find a course through the sometimes difficult territory of parenting matters including complex situations such as relocation disputes, and child protection and child abduction (interstate and overseas). I can assist with matrimonial and de facto property settlements, pre-nuptial and post-nuptial agreements, spousal maintenance, asset planning (including trusts, wills and estates), paternity issues, domestic violence matters, divorce, spousal maintenance and child support.
I believe in supporting clients through the process of decision making around relationship and family issues to discover the best result possible for them and their loved ones.
I completed Family Dispute Resolution studies at the Queensland University of Technology and gained advanced training in Collaborative Law. I use this training to explore and encourage non-adversarial and more cost-effective methods of dispute resolution although I have extensive experience in Court proceedings if needed.
I like to share my experience with law students and have been involved with QUT’s career mentor program and Griffith University’s industry mentoring scheme for many years. I also volunteer at Women’s Legal Service. I have recently joined the Queensland Law Society list of domestic violence lawyers.
Nichola was recently made a Finalist in the 2017 Australian Law Awards in the ‘Special Counsel of the Year’ category.
I act for clients with complex business and property structures as well as those with smaller property pools working through a simple division of property or a parenting plan for their children.
I hold a Master of Laws from the Queensland University of Technology and I am a Queensland Law Society Accredited Specialist in Family Law. I gained my Bachelor of Laws from the University of Queensland.
I have also completed Family Dispute Resolution studies at the Queensland University of Technology and advanced training in Collaborative Law.
I was admitted as a solicitor in July 1991.
I am a member of Queensland Collaborative Law, International Academy of Collaborative Practitioners, the Family Law Practitioners Association (Qld), and the Family Law Section of the Law Council of Australia, and I am a member and the Treasurer of Women Lawyers Association of Queensland.
