Rebecca McLeod

Professional Qualifications:

· Bachelor of Laws (Macquarie University)

· Bachelor of Social Science (Macquarie University)

· Member, Law Society of New South Wales

· Solicitor, Supreme Court of New South Wales

Rebecca was admitted as a solicitor in 2008 and has practiced almost exclusively in Family Law since 2012.

Prior to joining Watts McCray, Rebecca was the Managing Director of a general practice firm on the Northern Beaches where she gained insight and experience in a wide range of other areas of law including commercial and civil litigation, conveyancing, estate planning, intellectual property and commercial law. This opportunity helped her identify her passion for Family Law.

Rebecca’s business acumen and extensive experience in a variety of Family Law matters, including complex and contentious property and parenting matters, spousal maintenance, divorce, child support and parentage testing is invaluable when helping clients achieve their desired outcomes. She acknowledges that whilst possessing the relevant technical skills is absolutely essential, being human centric and empathetic is also pivotal in assisting clients.

She is conscious that the issues clients face following separation or entering into a new relationship are usually foreign and potentially overwhelming, and aims to aid that process and ease the burden by ensuring clients are empowered by sound, clear and efficient legal advice.

Rebecca is also acutely aware of acting in a commercially sensible manner, ensuring the costs are not disproportionate. She is always working towards reaching a time and cost effective resolution.

When faced with a challenging matter, Rebecca has no qualms in applying the tenacity, organisation, strategy and attention to detail that will successfully see the matter through, including advocating for her clients in Court if needs be.

Rebecca grew up and remains living on the Northern Beaches and is actively part of the sporting community. When not helping clients, she enjoys baking, being outdoors and spending time with her family and friends.
