Senior Associate

Before becoming a solicitor, Charlotte has undertaken a variety of roles that have given her the skills and qualities to assist her in her role as a family lawyer with Simonidis Steel Lawyers.

Her years at the CREATE Foundation, a charity working with children and young people in out-of-home care, has armed Charlotte with invaluable skills and an intuitive understanding of the intricacies involved in difficult parenting matters, and children’s issues generally.

This experience crystallised Charlotte’s decision to study family law and combined her practical experience with her legal knowledge, enabling her to provide her clients with more than just excellent legal advice.

Charlotte is committed to providing her clients with straightforward and realistic advice in relation to parenting and property matters with her clients’ best interests a priority.

Charlotte has been with Simonidis Steel Lawyers since 2012. She was admitted as a lawyer in 2009 after completing her post-graduate law degree at the University of Queensland having previously undertaken a Bachelor of Arts (Social Science). While at UQ Charlotte was awarded the Dean’s Commendation for High Achievement on three occasions.

In the words of one of her clients…

“Divorce is one of the most stressful events we can go through in life. It’s always messy business because emotions can get in the way of making good business decisions. Charlotte was my calm in a storm. Her ability to have me focus on the end goal and advised me when my heart over ruled my head were very much appreciated. Charlotte has attention to detail and dots the I’s and crosses the t’s. Separating assets is an expensive task but Charlotte always gave me open information on the costs along with legal options available to me.. Thank you Charlotte, for giving me the advice, attention and care that I needed at my lowest point.”
