Prior to joining Doolan Callaghan Rowena worked in the Sydney CBD and North Shore areas. She has experience in a wide range of litigation and dispute resolution matters after practising for almost 20 years and now practises exclusively in the area of family law.
Rowena’s experience and skills allow her to provide advice and representation in all facets of family law matters including property settlements, both de facto and married, parenting disputes, divorce, child support issues and spousal maintenance.
Rowena is aware of the financial and emotional toll of litigation and works hard to achieve early resolution of matters through negotiation and alternative dispute resolution without the involvement of the Court wherever possible. However, where litigation is unavoidable Rowena is a strong and persuasive advocate and her extensive litigation experience assists in achieving the best possible outcome.
Rowena is experienced in representing clients throughout the Court process and regularly appears before Judges and Registrars of the Family Court of Australia and the Federal Circuit Court of Australia. She has also represented clients in all major NSW Courts and Tribunals.
Rowena’s pragmatic, professional and empathetic approach and her extensive experience allows her to find the best possible solution so that her clients can move on with their lives.
