LLB(Hons), BMedia, GDLP

The proud daughter of a hardworking farmer-turned-truck driver, Elyse grew up drenching sheep and reaping crops on the family farm on the Southern Yorke Peninsula.  She completed a Bachelor of Laws with honours, a Bachelor of Media and GDLP at the University of Adelaide.  She was admitted to practice in 2020.  Elyse began her legal career at the Crown Solicitor’s Office before serving as Associate to the Honourable Justice Bampton of the Supreme Court of South Australia.  It was during her time with her Honour that she unearthed her passion for estate litigation.

Elyse regularly appears in the Supreme Court in relation to inheritance and estate disputes and represents her clients at mediations.  Elyse’s personal experiences inform her empathetic and practical approach to her practice.  She is cognisant of the emotional toll of litigation, especially after the loss of a loved one.  Elyse prides herself on providing her clients with a thorough understanding of their options and guiding them through the process with compassion.

Elyse practices in the following areas:

  • Inheritance (Family Provision) disputes
  • Estate litigation
  • Deceased estate administration
  • Presumption of death matters
  • Drafting Wills
  • Preparing Powers of Attorney and Advance Care Directives

Outside of work, Elyse is a keen cross-stitcher, loves a weekend spent visiting her mum on Hindmarsh Island and is on a perpetual hunt for Adelaide’s best bowl of phở.
