Sue began working in the legal industry in 1988 in a large practice where she gained valuable skills in numerous areas of law including family law, personal injury law, estate matters and the ETSA bushfire litigation.
After having her own family and returning to work, Sue has worked exclusively in family law for many years and has also worked as a Chambers Clerk with a specialist Family Law Chambers.
Sue joined Donlan Lawyers in 2013 and is dedicated to providing excellent service as Tim Donlan’s Personal Assistant.

Giulia joined the firm in 2020 after previously working in another law firm and developing a keen interest in private legal practice.
She has a firm understanding of various Court processes from her previous employment and has developed a particular interest in family law. As the personal assistant to Carrie-Ann Eames that interest gets exercised every day.
Giulia understands the high level of demand in family matters and is enthusiastic, personable, and hard working so as to assist clients through difficult times. Attention to detail and having a close working relationship with staff and clients is important to her.
In her spare time Giulia works out at the gym and spends time with family and friends. She also enjoys a good song, and an open dance floor on the weekends, of course.
