Ella works closely with the Family Law team at Hummingbird Lawyers on a variety of family law cases, with a special focus on cases involving custody and access issues. Her legal work experience includes family law matters with some prior work on civil litigation, corporate, commercial and immigration files. This combination of background has led Ella to acquire the essential skills required for dealing with all aspects of dynamic and complicated family law disputes.
Ella’s perceptive eye for the human element, together with her extensive background in community and volunteer work, have allowed Ella to develop a unique understanding for the emotional and psychological nuances that are universally present throughout and post-separation. Whether these emotional and psychological aspects stem from the parties’ cultural background, personal histories or certain past events, Ella will actively balance such elements against the best interest of the child(ren), as well as the legal and practical requirements in each case.
