Karen Devey

Senior Associate

Karen Devey


Karen was admitted to practice in 2015 and has practiced exclusively as a family lawyer since that time. She has practiced in both New South Wales and Victoria and has experience in a wide range of parenting and property cases.

Karen is a commercially minded and practical lawyer. Whilst preferring the cost, time and stress saving benefits of negotiating an outcome out of Court, she is a skilled litigator and advocates fearlessly on behalf of her clients when litigation is necessary.

Karen understands that family law proceedings can be a very challenging time for her clients. She prides herself on providing her clients with the most positive experience possible, through clear communication, describing the relevant law in plain language and providing pragmatic advice.
