Shelley is our conveyancing guru. After relocating to Mackay in 2009, she has returned to the Sunshine Coast with her husband and two young children. 

Shelley has over 15 years of experience working in various aspects of law and can answer your queries about all aspects of our practice, including conveyancing and property purchases and sales, family law issues and wills and estate matters.

When Shelley is not in the office she enjoys working with her animals on the farm, camping with her family and cheering her son on from the sidelines at football.


Miri is the office dog. She knows nothing about the law, so please do not ask her for advice. When she's not working hard at the office, she likes to chase chickens and watch tv.


Lily is our exceptional receptionist. With a degree in anthropology, Lily has now discovered the joys of legal practice. Lily can assist you with every enquiry, and is enjoying learning the ropes at Cooroy Legal Centre.


Lily loves musicals and enjoys welcoming clients with a smile and a cup of tea. She's waiting for your call.
