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 is a Queensland Law Society Accredited Specialist in Family Law.
