Rebecca came to Robinson + McGuinness in 2016 from a mid-tier firm in New South Wales, where she clerked exclusively in their family law practice group for two years. During her studies she undertook an internship with the Attorney-General’s Department, assisting in drafting and legislative discussion.
Rebecca graduated from Macquarie University in 2015 with a Bachelor of Laws and a Bachelor of Arts with a major in Sociology. She is admitted to both the Supreme Court of the Australian Capital Territory and the High Court of Australia. She is undertaking a Masters of Laws from the Australian National University with a focus on advanced issues in family law and alternative dispute resolution.
Having been a passionate competitor in her university mooting and negotiation competitions, Rebecca has confidently undertaken junior advocacy in the local and federal court jurisdictions.
Complimented by her studies in Sociology, Rebecca has an interest in complex parenting matters and has worked on matters involving drug and alcohol abuse and family violence. Taking into account the sensitive nature of family law and the stress that litigation can place on families, Rebecca strives to negotiate the best possible outcomes for her clients.
