About the Solicitor
Ruth’s previous experience includes working in commercial litigation with an inner-city law firm and as a Solicitor with the Victorian Aboriginal Legal Service with the Early Resolution Service. In this role, she successfully negotiated with Victoria Police with tact and persuasion and made strong submissions in Court to have Family Violence Intervention Order matters resolved by way of an undertaking, being withdrawn or struck out.
Joining the DG Family Law team in 2022, Ruth has continued to advocate strongly for applicants and respondents in family violence intervention order proceedings and regularly appears in the Magistrates’ Court of Victoria across various locations. She is a fierce advocate for sound outcomes in parenting and property matters in the Federal Circuit and Family Law Court of Australia and further assists with criminal law matters.

Ruth graduated with Bachelor of Laws and Bachelor of Arts (Psychology major) from Monash University in 2016 and was admitted to practice as an Australian Legal Practitioner in 2019.
Ruth enjoys playing in the ocean and believes that much can be mended with rest, good company and a warm mug of chai.
