Lezah’s corporate commercial law background is of real benefit to family law clients, particularly in more complex property matters involving businesses, larger investment portfolios and corporate and trust structures.
Lezah established LGM Family Law to provide a professional and at the same time personalised service for our clients. She understands that finalising property and parenting arrangements can be a stressful time for clients and carefully guides and supports clients through the legal process.
Lezah builds relationships of trust with our clients. She ensures that she is readily accessible so that clients can obtain the advice that they need on an ongoing basis and understand the legal implications. Lezah’s focus is on providing sensible, practical advice, making sure that our clients understand the options available to them and achieving the best available outcome for clients, reflecting their goals, values and needs.
In her spare time, Lezah enjoys volunteering at community groups, spending time with family and friends and painting (pictures not walls!).
