Celia is accredited by the NSW Law Society as an Accredited Specialist (Family Law) and is experienced in all aspects of family law advice and dispute resolution. She has over 12 years’ experience practising exclusively in Family Law and shares Pigott Stinson’s focus on giving clients cost-effective, practical advice.

Her experience includes complex parenting, property and child support matters as well as more complex financial issues involving business interests, trusts and self-managed superannuation funds in a family law context.

Celia understands the importance of helping her clients resolve their issues collaboratively and aims to assist them in reaching negotiated settlements, minimising the impacts of separation for her clients, so far as possible. However, Celia is also an experienced litigator and works hard to ensure her clients receive the best outcome in contested matters, should an adversarial approach be necessary. To provide her clients with a range of options to resolving family law disputes, Celia has undertaken further specialist training in mediation and is an Accredited Family Dispute Resolution Practitioner. She is also trained in Collaborative Practice, and offers this to clients in appropriate circumstances, as an alternative to litigation or traditional lawyer-led negotiations.
