Family Dispute Resolution Practitioner
Simone Thomas joined Lamrocks Solicitors in early 2008 as a senior solicitor and Manager of the Family Law team, and has since become an integral part of the firm.
After starting her career working for a large, well-known, commercial law firm in the Sydney CBD, Simone soon realised that her interest lay in helping families through the difficult process of separation and divorce. She eventually left the city to focus on family law and returned to the Hawkesbury-Nepean region where she grew up and has spent the last 10 years helping couples and families to resolve their family law disputes in the most effective way possible.
As well as being a qualified family lawyer, Simone is also a talented mediator and accredited Family Dispute Resolution Practitioner. She works closely with families to try and identify the important issues and helps them to resolve disputes quickly and effectively, without the need to attend Court. In fact, one of the things that Simone finds most rewarding about working in this field is being able to help couples make informed decisions about their future and agree on the outcome of a dispute themselves.
If a solution cannot be reached through mediation and negotiation, Simone is an experienced and determined litigator who can successfully represent her clients’ interests in Court proceedings.
