Lucinda completed her Bachelor of Law at Bond University in 2013 and commenced her Masters in Applied Family Law through College of Law in January 2018.
Lucinda joined Wiltshire Family Law in 2013, as a junior family lawyer where she developed her skills and passion for family law. In 2015, Lucinda relocated to London and continued to pursue her passion for law undertaking an internship whilst experiencing another culture. Upon return to Australia in 2015, Lucinda has continued to work exclusively in family law, having recently left a boutique law firm in Brisbane. In September 2018, Lucinda re-joined Wiltshire Family Law, where she works closely with Beata Leszczuk.
Lucinda is passionate about assisting clients following the breakdown of their relationships. She prides herself on delivering practical, cost effective and realistic outcomes for clients through her strong negotiation and communication skills, as well as her approachable and understanding nature.
She understands that helping clients achieve the best possible outcome does not always mean taking a rigid position and works collaboratively with other practitioners to resolve matters amicably if possible, reducing the financial and emotional stress that can arise following separation. However, where necessary, Lucinda does not hesitate to take a direct approach and act protectively in defense of her client’s rights.
Lucinda advises clients in all aspects of family law matters including property, parenting, spousal maintenance, child support, divorce and domestic violence matters. She has a particular interest in complex parenting matters, including international relocation, child abduction and recovery matters as well as sensitive matters involving allegations of substance abuse, mental health, domestic and family violence. She is a skilled advocate and regularly represents clients at the Federal Circuit Court and Magistrates Court.
Her career highlight to date is successfully having a child returned under the Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction.
