Meet Sarah
Sarah Galvin
Senior Associate

I was admitted as a legal practitioner in 2004, following completion of a Bachelor of Laws and the Bar Practice Course in 2004.  My professional career started with appointment as a criminal prosecutor before transitioning into a family law. In 2010 I moved to the UK ‘to see the world’ and practiced as a child protection lawyer and solicitor advocate in England for nearly 7 years. On returning home to Australia, I returned to being a dedicated family lawyer.   


Passionate about being an effective lawyer for my clients, I am adept at identifying client’s goals, guiding them expertly through to the conclusion of their family law issue with skill and compassion.


I am there with my clients throughout the whole process.  My expertise is in both property settlement and children’s matters, as well as preparation of Pre-Nuptial and other Financial Agreements, consent orders and in child support matters. I am just as effective in negotiations as well as Court hearings. 


As well as a dedicated family lawyer, my passion is also for my local community. I volunteer my time to charity and fulfil the role of Principal Solicitor of My Community Legal, a community legal centre on the Gold Coast. 


I am also a board member of the Southern Gold Coast Chamber of Commerce.


When not at work, I’ll be in my garden, ice-skating or just hanging around the beachside with a coffee in one hand.
