Esther specialises in all areas of family law with years of practise in this area. She has been with Cavell Leitch since 2016, and prior to that was with another local law firm. As well as assisting private clients, she is also a court-appointed lawyer for child.

Esther enjoys being able to provide clear legal advice to clients who may be experiencing difficulties with issues arising from a separation or clients who want to protect themselves or loved ones. Esther’s approach to resolving legal issues is practical and sensible and she is dedicated to achieving the best possible outcome for her clients.

"In an area often fraught with tension and high emotion, I like to ensure clients are heard and understood and feel empowered to negotiate difficult issues or navigate their way through the court system."
