Isabel was admitted as a lawyer of the Supreme Court of New South Wales in 2015, after graduating from the University of Technology, Sydney with a Bachelor of Laws with First Class Honours. Her Honours Thesis was on undue influence in Wills, a topic which she remains passionate about.
A large focus of Isabel’s practice is complex estate planning and advice in relation to trusts. She also acts for executors and beneficiaries in relation to estate matters, including probate applications, construction of wills, and estate administration disputes. She has run Supreme Court proceedings for both private clients and charitable organisations to resolve trust-related issues and disputes. Isabel has also acted for both plaintiffs and defendants in estate litigation, including family provision and contested probate matters.
In 2020, Isabel was recognised as a Rising Star in the area of wills and estates by Doyle’s Guide. The same year, she was a finalist in the Lawyers Weekly 30 Under 30 awards for her pro bono legal work. In December 2020, she won the Lawyers Weekly Women in Law Rising Star award, as well as the Excellence Award which recognised the top 10 female practitioners, as assessed by the Lawyers Weekly panel, across all areas of practice in Australia.
Isabel enjoys sharing wills and estates knowledge with other professionals, clients and the public. She has conducted multiple workshops for charity organisations in relation to probate and estate issues, as well as for probate registrars and judges of the Supreme Court of New South Wales.
Isabel joined our firm in August 2022, and acts in both contentious and non-contentious matters relating to wills, estates and trusts.
