Hello! I’m Jodi Dingwall – one of the trained Collaborative Family Lawyers. I bring a wealth of experience to my position and I am able to assist with all types of matters including parenting matters, property settlement and child support matters just to name a few!
I also have experience in criminal and traffic matters as well as commercial law and conveyancing. I have a love of all areas of family law – parenting disputes, property settlements, child support issues and domestic violence matters.
Having a young family of my own I am able to be empathetic to clients needing advice and guidance with parenting disputes and my previous experience in commercial and conveyancing is beneficial to clients when working through property settlements and the implementation of financial agreements that are reached.
When advising clients I ensure that my clients understand the process (including the law). I am a firm believer that going to court should always be a last resort which is why I offer clients practical advice that takes on board that clients circumstances and help clients look outside the box so that they can resolve their matters as amicably as possible and as cost effectively as possible. I mean no one actually wants to spend money on lawyers and going to court unless it is absolutely necessary.
When I am not at work or at home embracing being a mum to two beautiful kids you can find me sweating it out on the tennis and netball courts and smashing my step count on the pavement in my neighbourhood and around Townsville.
