Our Team

Denise Maxwell, Principal

Denise is the founding Principal of our firm. Denise has been a lawyer since 1989 and has extensive experience in a wide range of areas of law. Before starting our firm in 1998, Denise worked in various legal practices in Kenmore, Southport, Brisbane and Mackay. Denise mainly looks after business matters, commercial leases and litigation. Denise also keeps an eagle eye on the rest of our team.

Chyrse Lambridis, Family & Succession Lawyer

Chyrse was yet another happy client of Denise’s way back in 2000, and joined us in October 2018 as our Family and Succession Lawyer. Chyrse claims she has the energy of 10 people! She brings to us her can-do attitude and well-developed people skills. In addition to her legal qualifications, Chyrse holds a Bachelor of Business (Hons) Marketing, is a Registered Nurse and is part of the lycra brigade (Denise has promised not to hold this against her).

Allison Baxter, Conveyancing Manager

Allison and Denise first worked together in 1988 when Denise was fresh out of law school. They remained friends and Allison came to work for us in 2001 as our Conveyancing Paralegal. Allison is the head of our conveyancing team. Allison keeps us entertained by dancing to Chiquitita whenever it is played on the radio she insists on having next to her desk.

Kathryn Larsen, Senior Conveyancing Paralegal

Kathryn joined our team in October 2018 after many years working in the Brisbane CBD. Kathryn brings a wealth of experience and knowledge of conveyancing and leasing work. We hope to see her get up and boogie with Allison once she has settled in.

Glenys Sommerville, Managing Law Clerk

Glenys and Denise worked together in the late 1990′s.  Glenys joined our team in October 2013 as a Managing Law Clerk.  Glenys has extensive skill and experience in debt recovery work, including for national and international businesses, insurance companies, car hire businesses and the like.  Glenys is passionate about her work and is a tiger at recovering debts.

Ally Jacobi, Senior Debt Recovery Paralegal

Ally J joined us in October 2018. Ally is a highly experienced and capable debt recovery paralegal and has settled straight into our team, like she has been with us for years really. She is calm cool and collected and provides a nice balance to the tigerish Glenys.

Carmel Murphy, Legal Secretary

Carmel is Legal Secretary for Denise and Chyrse and also our friendly and helpful receptionist two days a week. She has been part of our team since 2006. Carmel keeps our office ticking over, we would be lost without her!

Lyn Vicary, Accounts Manager

Lyn is our Accounts Manager and all round miracle worker (she successfully got Denise to empty a tray of paperwork that had gathered dust, much to the astonishment of the rest of our team). We await with interest her next miracle (the odds on her successfully having Denise tidy her office have gone down from 1 million to 1 to 500,000 to 1!)
