Mel is part of our construction and dispute resolution team but has broader expertise. When she isn’t helping Keystone’s clients resolve their disputes, Mel is often involved in providing legal advice on construction contracts and focuses on building and expanding her technical expertise – something she always puts 100 per cent into.

A self-confessed critical thinker, Mel is driven by helping people succeed. She loves coming up with practical, cost-effective solutions that enable everyone involved to find a middle ground and move forward – and she values honesty and reliability.

Mel previously worked as a contract administrator for a UK-based surveying firm and as a paralegal in the property department of a large regional law firm. She has a Bachelor of Laws (LLB) from the University of New England, Armidale.

Outside of work, Mel loves to make time for the important people in her life. Her passions include cooking, bush walks, the beach, travel and animals.
