Kate completed a Bachelor of Laws and Legal Practice at Flinders University in 2011 and was admitted in the Supreme Court of South Australia in October 2011. In February 2012 Kate was admitted as a solicitor in the High Court of Australia.
Kate joined Culshaw Miller in 2014 having previously practiced in commercial law. Her practice is now solely in the areas of family law and surrogacy, the latter being a discrete area of law that Kate takes great interest in.
Whilst Kate has a strong focus on assisting clients settle their matters by way of negotiation and alternative dispute resolution, she has significant experience in litigation, including trials and appeals, and has appeared regularly in the Family Court of Australia, the Federal Circuit Court of Australia, and the Youth Court of South Australia (Surrogacy matters). Kate is also able to advise in respect to the cross-over of family law and criminal law matters.
Kate takes pride in her fundraising efforts in respect to South Australian family law related charities.
