My name is Hannah Elliott. I joined Wisewould Mahony in January 2014 and was initially based in the Commercial Litigation Department where I gained valuable experience acting in matters which included contractual and administrative law disputes.
I was subsequently fortunate to be offered an opportunity to join the Family Law team where my practice includes assisting clients with Property Settlements, Spousal Maintenance claims, Financial Agreements, Divorce Applications, and Parenting and Children’s Issues. I also assist clients with advice about Intervention Orders and Domestic Violence issues.
In my role, sensitivity and being a good listener are essential. I try to be approachable and not to speak “legalese” which is important when dealing with issues which can be intensely personal for a client. Doing my job well also means constantly striving for resolution of matters efficiently and with the least possible emotional and financial cost.
Wisewould Mahony is a great place to work because people here enjoy what they do and they take an immense amount of pride in their work. I find my role rewarding because I enjoy dealing with clients, and helping them to resolve their Family Law matters so that they can move on with their lives.
