Amelia is a litigation paralegal working as part of both our Estate Litigation and Commercial Litigation teams, assisting our most senior and experienced lawyers. Amelia joined Attwood Marshall in 2019 and is currently undergoing an Undergraduate Bachelor of Laws (Honors) at Queensland University of Technology.
Growing up in Burleigh Heads, Amelia has been heavily immersed in the Gold Coast culture. She has been a member of Burleigh Heads Surf Live Saving Club, where she volunteered until she was 17.
Amelia attended Marymount College, through which she received nominations for Gold Coast’s Most Empowering Young Women Award in the Gold Coast Women in Business Awards, and International Women’s Day Community Service Award, where she was named a finalist for both awards in 2013 and 2014. Her nominations stemmed from her community service which involved:
- A mission trip to Vanuatu
- Surf Life Saving
- Facilitating student visits to St Vincent de Paul’s Families “Back on Track” facility; and
- Presidency of Marymount College’s Rotary Interact Club.
Amelia enjoys travelling, having been to over 30 countries. In 2013, she was awarded a grant by Bond University and RLS Queensland to travel to Vanuatu to work in a village school. She has also hiked in the Andes and lived in Europe.
Amelia started her legal studies at Bond University while still in high school, undergoing their “Student for a Semester” Program. She continued her studies in 2016, starting with Political Science and Criminology, before moving into a Bachelor of Laws (Honors) in 2017.
These experiences have allowed Amelia to developed great people skills, compassion and empathy, and she is now focussed on continuing to give to the community through her role in the justice system. Amelia enjoys estate litigation as she can help people who are in need and turmoil. Her role involves drafting court documents and correspondence, collating evidence, liaising with and supporting clients, and assisting the solicitors throughout the litigation process.
