Sunserae has brought with her many years of experience working in the legal industry. She works as a paralegal here at the Firm and heads up our Family Law Paralegal Team.

Her dream is to travel to experience all the fine wine & cuisine that Italy has to offer. She has a passion for netball so you might find her down at the local courts watching the rising stars of Hervey Bay on a Saturday morning.
Conveyancing, Criminal and General Paralegal
Jess joined the firm and the industry in October 2021 with a Bachelor of Business and a keen interest in law. With a passion for helping others, she enjoys helping clients whether it be with buying or selling their house. If she’s on top of the workload she can often be found helping or badgering other staff members to show her more about law.
Outside of work, Jess is heavily involved in Hervey Bay Netball and loves coaching her junior team. If she’s not at the courts, she is either reading a book, in her rose garden or out at the beach with her puppy.
Family Law Clerk
Alanna joined the firm at the start of 2022 and has shown her passion for Family Law and her willingness to learn every day.
She is currently finishing her Bachelor of Laws and aims to be admitted as a lawyer in 2023.
Alanna believes that when people are going through one of the most difficult times in their life, they need extra support and understanding accompanied with valuable and straightforward advice. They want someone who can empathise with them and fight for their interests.
Even though the law is complicated, the advice of a lawyer doesn’t have to be.
Bianca is our recently admitted lawyer who is currently working in the area of Wills, EPOA’s, Estates and Trusts. She enjoys helping our clients have some peace of mind that their affairs will be in order when they pass away.
In her spare time, Bianca loves spending time with her family and friends of both the two and four-legged variety, being owner of three dogs named Cleo, Willow and Bella, and a number of riding horses. She also loves the great outdoors, travelling and exploring.
Alternate career choice: Archaeologist/Ancient Historian.
Conveyancer – Residential and Commercial
Kelsey is our resident office-jester, if she isn’t laughing she is sure to be making someone else laugh nearby. With her law degree almost complete, Kelsey’s fresh take on legal matter and keen interest in crime & conveyancing make her invaluable to our female-led team. Kelsey is the paralegal to the principal of the firm – Melissa – and has over a decade in administrative experience. Out of the office, Kelsey is a family ‘gal’ and will do any activity if it means being able to spend time with her nieces. When Kelsey isn’t burning all her energy on our client’s needs, she is plugging in her headphones, blasting the tunes and going on a long run around the Bay. We’d go with her but we know we’d never keep up!
