Pullos lawyers is excited to welcome Rebekah Hemerik to our team of Family Lawyers. Rebekah has been an integral part of the Pullos Law family for over a year, providing support to and learning from our experienced legal team as a paralegal. Now an admitted lawyer, Rebekah has joined our professional team and is applying her deeply strategic and empathetic approach to achieve durable, positive outcomes for our clients.
Prior to commencing a career in Family Law, I spent the better half of a decade working at Queensland Police Service and Brisbane City Council, where I gained a very unique set of skills, knowledge and insight into criminal law. It was here where my desire for a career in Law was ignited, and this experience led me to completing a Bachelor of Laws (Honours) and Bachelor of Criminology and Criminal Justice.
While I originally thought my legal career would be centred in criminal law, I very quickly uncovered a passion for Family Law. My interest in Family Law has continued to grow and evolve and is now the sole and driving focus of my legal career. I am fascinated by the intricacies of the Family Law system, and the fact that you cannot take a ‘one size fits all’ approach when applying the principles of Family Law. Each relationship and family dynamic is different, and I pride myself on understanding the unique nature of your particular relationship, and being able to provide you with a tailored approach that meets your needs and goals. I appreciate that relationship breakdowns can be emotional and difficult, particularly when children are involved. Whilst cases require different levels of directness, I pride myself on taking a non-conflictual approach where possible, so that you can navigate this tricky period as seamlessly and peacefully as possible.
Prior to my admission as a Family Lawyer, I was fortunate enough to work at Pullos Lawyers as a Paralegal, during which time I gained invaluable experience and knowledge of the Family Law system from our team of Accredited Family Law Specialists and Family Lawyers. I believe this has given me a ‘leg up’ on other newly admitted lawyers and I continue to be guided by the years of experience and expertise that the team here at Pullos Lawyers have.
Having a good Family Lawyer on your side will completely change your experience of the Family Law system, and I look forward to working with you to achieve the best possible outcome for you and your family.
