Judith Sheehan – Lawyer

 

 

Certified to practise in both Queensland and Western Australia, Judith is experienced in the general practice of law but prefers to focus in the areas of criminal law, family law, domestic violence and child protection.

Judith was led to the law as a natural second career, following a fascinatingly diverse path.  After an early career as a primary school teacher, she moved into community service work, initially assisting in the settlement of humanitarian refugees and then as a support worker in the Red Cross ‘Intensive Family Support’ Program.

In addition to her legal studies,  Judith is also qualified as a Migration Agent.  She continues her community service through membership of Rotary and voluntary involvement with St Vincent de Paul Society.  More recently, Judith has developed a keen interest in environmental issues.
