MEET THE TEAM
Sian is a Sunshine Coast local and has established roots in the community. Her studies and early career took her to Brisbane and then to the United Kingdom where she practised in Family Law and Child Protection Law. During these times she worked on many complex cases involving children. She has been practising in these areas of law for over 14 years. Sian joined the Firm on the Avenue in 2021 and works in our Family Law team.
Having returned to the Sunshine Coast in 2017, she is committed to assist her clients and in all aspects of legal issues that arise within the Family Law context in an empathetic manner. She is understanding of the emotional stress that can be placed on families at these times and is driven to work in a positive manner and support her clients on their individual legal path. She can also refer you to other professionals she works closely with, in a collaborative manner to assist you on your journey.
Sian is a member of the Queensland Law Society, Family Law Practitioners Association, Sunshine Coast Law Association and the Sunshine Coast Business Women’s network. She also regularly volunteers at the Suncoast Community Legal Service and is a Committee Member.
When Sian is not in the office or at Court you will often find her at the beach, on her yoga mat or behind the wheel of a 4WD exploring many beautiful parts of SE Queensland. If Sian was not a Solicitor, she would find a way to continue to explore all that this world has to offer as a Corporate Traveller (in a pre COVID world).
Sian is primarily based out of our Sunshine Coast office but is also available for appointments at our Hervey Bay office as well.
Luke has worked exclusively in Family Law since his graduation from James Cook University in 2017. Luke joined The Firm on the Avenue team in 2021 and works in our Family Law team.
Luke has a range of expertise in property and parenting matters and regularly appears in the Federal Circuit Court of Australia and Family Court of Australia. Luke has a passion for assisting his clients in alternate dispute resolution processes including mediations, legal aid conferences and round table conferences.
Luke is also a member of the Queensland Law Society, Family Law Practitioners Association, Sunshine Coast Law Association and is a volunteer Solicitor with the Suncoast Community Legal Service.
Outside of work, you can find Luke at his second home, the local climbing gym. If Luke wasn’t a Lawyer he would ideally like to be travelling the world continuing to write his music as Borderland State, and playing live shows.
Luke is primarily based out of our Sunshine Coast Office, but is available for appointments at our Hervey Bay office as well.
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!
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.
Sunserae has swapped the red dirt of the Pilbara for the beautiful blue ocean of Hervey Bay. Out of the office she’s is enjoying the beauties of Hervey Bay with her daughter, usually by the water.
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.
