Accredited Specialist – Immigration Law
Former MARN 0532285
Registered to practise since 2003
Kathryn comes from a long line of migrants. Her grandparents migrated, her parents migrated, and so has she – twice – so she personally understands what our clients face when dealing with immigration issues. After leaving the UK, Kathryn spent her formative years in Singapore before arriving in Sydney in 1994 as the holder of a student visa. Like most of our clients, she fell in love with Australia and decided to make it her home.
Kathryn started her legal career in the community sector and her commitment to social justice has never waned. In addition to following her bleeding heart, Kathryn has developed her immigration law skills and knowledge by working for various boutique immigration law firms including her own for 8 years. She brings a unique combination of empathy and pragmatism when advising our clients and they value her approach. With her degree in psychology and years of experience in fostering the careers of wayward young lawyers and law students, the team at Nomos are in awe of Kathryn’s good counsel.
Kathryn balances her passion for lawyering with other noble pursuits including chairing the board of the Immigration Advice and Rights Centre, promoting bone marrow/stem cell donation in Australia through the TLR Foundation and advocating inclusivity within the legal profession through Diverse Women in Law. She also lectures in the Graduate Diploma in Migration Law at Victoria University and is a member of the Law Society of NSW’s Specialist Accreditation Immigration Law Advisory Committee. We don’t know how she fits it all in, but she does!
