I’m Jodie. I am originally from Bristol, UK where I qualified as a lawyer in 2014. I moved to Australia shortly after and have worked within family law ever since. While working at Emera Smith I spent time studying to achieve my Australian qualification and I was admitted as an Australian lawyer in 2020.
I met Mona Emera while living in Brisbane in 2014. She interviewed me for a role, and we have worked together ever since. I am thrilled to be a part of Emera Smith. We have a shared vision to deliver the best client service possible and we genuinely care about obtaining great outcomes for our clients.
I am skilled in all aspects of the family law including:
I have a keen interest in LGBTIQA+ family law matters and am focused on building professional connections with specialists in this area.
I enjoy helping clients navigate the complexities of family law matters in an accessible and straightforward way. During my time at Emera Smith, I have learned the importance of building trust and strong relationships with our clients so that they feel supported and confident throughout this process. I am settlement focused and work hard to achieve great results for our clients.
In my spare time, you’ll find me running around the north side of town, supporting local restaurants and attempting to build on my music knowledge exploring the Melbourne music scene.
