Mehzabin has been a solicitor for over seven years, and has extensive experience in multiple areas of law including family, property, domestic violence, wills and estates, and civil matters. Her greatest passion is family law, particularly matters of parenting, and those involving nuanced cultural issues which often fall through the cracks of the legal system. For this reason, she now solely practices in family law.
In 2020, Mehzabin completed a Masters of Law by Research at the University of Sydney, focusing on family dispute resolution within migrant communities. In 2014, she completed her Bachelor of Law (Honours) and Bachelor of Arts at the University of Technology Sydney. She has a passion for continued learning and for understanding how family law practices in Australia can be better accommodated to Australia’s thriving cultural diversity.
Mehzabin began practicing as a solicitor in mid-2014, in the inner west suburbs of Sydney, where she has dealt with and catered to a wide array of clients, from varied socio-economic and cultural backgrounds. She is passionate about treating all clients with equal respect, no matter who they are.
Both her practical experience and academic research have taught her the importance of understanding and prioritising the client’s perspective, in order to provide them with the best possible service and legal outcomes. She believes in the importance of reaching amicable solutions outside of court to lessen the burden on the client, but also believes in the benefit of taking certain matters to court in order to fight for what the client deserves. She has worked on matters in the Federal Circuit and Family Court of Australia, as well as the Local, District, and Supreme Courts of NSW.
Mehzabin was born and raised in Australia, but speaks Bengali and has a personal understanding of the needs of both the Bengali and wider Muslim communities in Australia.
