Prior to admission to practise as a solicitor, Melanie Stern gained invaluable experience as a legal associate to Judges of the Family Court of Australia. This experience provided Melanie with a useful insight into judicial decision-making and exposed her to a range of advocacy styles. 

Since admission, Melanie has worked exclusively in family law.

She has experience in a broad range of family law matters, including divorce, parenting matters, property and financial issues, child support, spouse maintenance and de facto relationships.

Melanie also provides advice on a volunteer basis for Women's Legal Service.

Melanie is a member of the Law Society of New South Wales, Eastern Suburbs Law Society, New South Wales Young Lawyers (Human Rights Committee and Family Law Committee) and Women Lawyers' Association of New South Wales.
