Ashleigh joined Daykin Family Law in 2018. She holds a Bachelor of Laws (First Class Honours) and a Bachelor of Justice (Distinction) from the Queensland University of Technology. She developed an interest in family law at university. This continued to grow after working for the Australian Institute of Family Studies collecting data for their research at the Federal Circuit Court and Family Court. Having worked in general practice, she has a wide understanding of different areas of law and brings this to her practice of family law. Ashleigh continued to be drawn to family law matters in general practice and therefore decided to specialise in this area.
Ashleigh has experience with property and parenting matters. She has also assisted clients with the mediation process and appreciates the value of early settlements for the financial and emotional wellbeing of all parties in a dispute.
She is empathetic and understands the importance of having a trustworthy advisor when dealing with family law matters.
