Elissa joined Kennedy Spanner Lawyers as a solicitor in June 2023. She completed her Bachelor of Laws (LLB) at James Cook University and was admitted as a solicitor to the Supreme Court of Queensland and the High Court of Australia in early 2018.
Elissa brings a wealth of knowledge and experience in family law including parenting arrangements, property settlements and family violence matters. Her calm, supportive and ‘to the point’ approach helps her move people from what is usually the worst period of their life into the next chapter of their life.
Elissa’s passion for helping her clients find solutions to their difficulties in a way which is easy to understand, helps her clients feel empowered and understood at the conclusion of their matter.
Out of the office, Elissa enjoys cross stitching, watching ice hockey and hanging out with her dog, Archibald (preferably all at the same time).
