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. Melanie recently completed her Master of Applied Law (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 the Women's Legal Service.
