Samantha is a Solicitor at Mahony Family Lawyers who assists clients in Family Law matters.
Samantha joined Mahony Family Lawyers shortly after completing her studies at Western Sydney University. Prior to joining the team, Samantha worked in a number of law firms across the Western Sydney area gaining experience in criminal defence, commercial law and Family Law. It is in Family Law where Samantha ultimately found her passion. Samantha has a particular interest in parenting matters, firmly believing that the best outcome is one that ensures the best interests of the children are met.
Throughout her legal career Samantha has worked closely with Independent Children’s Lawyers, accredited Mediators and Barristers in the Family Law jurisdiction. Samantha has observed first-hand the delays, cost and emotional toll Court proceedings can take on clients. As a result of this experience, Samantha is better able to support her clients to find the best outcome possible for what is often a very difficult situation.
As well as advocating for clients in contested Court matters, Samantha assists clients in reaching agreement by alternative means such as mediation and lawyer assisted negotiations. She also provides outreach legal clinics across Sydney to family support services as part of our Community Outreach Program. Samantha regards this as some of the most rewarding work she undertakes as a lawyer.
