Nicole Dawson

NicNicole joins Cahill & Rowe with extensive experience in family law, bringing a capability and proficiency that she has honed through many years of legal work in Ocean Grove and the Bellarine Peninsula.

Prior to becoming a solicitor, Nicole accrued over 25 years’ experience as a paralegal in family law. This experience has given her a keen understanding and sensitivity to the difficulties faced by those seeking legal advice for family matters and has instilled a strong passion for the pursuit of her client’s interests.

Nicole is an outstanding solicitor who takes a conciliatory approach to family law, believing that the best results usually come from carefully planned negotiation rather than drawn-out litigation.

Nicole does concede that sometimes litigation is unavoidable and has appeared successfully on behalf of many clients in the Magistrates Court, the Federal Circuit Court of Australia and the Family Court. Nicole is also an enthusiastic and active member of the Law Institute of Victoria and the Geelong Law Association.

When not working hard for her clients at Cahill & Rowe, Nicole loves spending time with her family, trying her hand at surfing and practising yoga.
