Biography

Rachael was admitted to practice as a barrister in 2003 after spending a number of years as a Crown Clerk at the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions. Upon admission she was engaged in various legal positions within the ODPP, including those of Committal's Legal Officer and Sentencing Prosecutor.

In 2004, Rachael sat the Qualified Lawyers Transfer Test at the College of Law, London, gaining admission as a solicitor in England and Wales. Between 2004 - 2008 she worked as a criminal defence solicitor and duty solicitor for a firm in London and later in Lewes, East Sussex, carrying large and complex caseloads. During her time in the UK Rachael appeared for clients in hundreds of hearings and over 60 trials in both the Magistrate’s Court and Youth Court at various locations in London and South-East England.

In 2009, Rachael again returned to the ODPP in Queensland based mostly in Beenleigh and Southport in a variety of roles, including that of Crown Prosecutor.

Rachael came to the private bar in January 2014 and is currently undertaking a Masters of Laws (Dispute Resolution) at Bond University.

Rachael is a nationally accredited mediator, family dispute resolution practitioner and a 2018 Doyles Recommended Family Mediator. She now practices predominantly in family mediation and restorative justice mediation. She conducts all her mediations through The Mediation Place.
