Olivia Phillips


Olivia Phillips is an empathetic family lawyer who takes great pride in assisting clients through their relationship breakdown to overcome the challenges they are facing.

Olivia provides clear and strategic advice to clients on all aspects of family law. With experience and maturity well beyond her years, she has been exposed to a wide range of family law issues including complex property settlements, parenting disputes, financial agreements and spousal maintenance.

Prior to Olivia’s admission, she spent her final year of study working as an Associate to His Honour Chief Judge O’Brien, Chief Judge of the District Court of Queensland. As an associate, she gained a unique perspective about the operation of the court and litigation. This experience serves her well in assisting her clients through the litigation process.

Olivia's Approach

With specialist experience in complex parenting and property matters, including international relocation, having successfully assisted in ensuring the return of children unilaterally removed from Australia from overseas, Olivia is committed to achieving the best outcomes for her clients.

While Olivia is experienced in litigation, one of her strengths lies in assisting people to find common ground, narrow issues in dispute and look for areas of agreement, wherever possible. Her approach is characterised by taking a big picture approach, distilling the issues and steering her clients away from unnecessary conflict.

A key characteristic of Olivia’s approach is her instinctive ability to understand those she assists, to share their perspective and to build a genuine rapport when assisting them through the issues they are facing.
