Caterina Andrews

Caterina has practised exclusively in family law since being admitted to practice in 2006. She is a Partner of the firm and an Accredited Family Law Specialist. Caterina is also trained as a collaborative lawyer, which she applies in her day to day practise.
She has previously worked at two national, multi-facetted top tier firms in Australia, as well as a short stint in London, with exposure to commercial litigation, insolvency, wills and estates.

Caterina is committed to providing her clients with realistic advice and options to ensure their matters are resolved expeditiously and commercially, appreciating the emotional and financial strain that family law matters place on clients.

Caterina has notably acted on behalf of the successful Applicant in the case of Spencer & Speight [2014] FamCA 436 where it was established that a de facto relationship can exist in circumstances where the relationship was less than 2 years and there was no sexual relationship.
