Sally has expertise across all areas of real property and residential and commercial landlord and tenant. She also advises and represents clients on wills and trusts focused property-related matters, as well as dealing with professional negligence litigation arising out of property transactions.

She is confident and assured in court and on paper and is noted for her thoroughness, and her down-to-earth approach as well as her knowledge of the law and ability in court. She believes that little produces better results for a client than a rigorous and detailed analysis of the issues at an early stage. Her work is typically litigation-focused, but also encompasses advice in respect of transactional matters.
