Monica Serci has a thorough, empathetic and pragmatic approach to family law matters. With a strong appreciation of the complex, stressful and emotional decisions required to be made in the family law process, Monica provides our firm’s clients with practical and cost effective options. Monica is committed to helping our clients make the most informed decisions about their futures. These important decisions help people experiencing relationship breakdown to move on with the next chapter in their lives with independence, financial security and dignity.
Monica’s passion for family law started in 2010 while studying an undergraduate law degree at the Macquarie University Law School. While studying law, Monica worked closely with an Accredited Family Law Specialist. While in this role, Monica developed a keen aptitude and desire to work in this unique area of the law.
Following Monica’s admission as a Solicitor in New South Wales in 2012, Monica continued to work exclusively in the area of family law in teams of family law specialists on a number of complex financial and parenting cases. In 2015, and prior to joining Watts McCray in 2017, Monica’s interest in family law resulted in the completion of a Master of Laws conferred by the University of Sydney.
On a personal note, Monica has a genuine interest in human rights issues and access to justice. Monica has volunteered for community organisations in helping diverse families. These ventures have contributed to Monica’s outlook on life and in the building of an astute awareness of the importance and strength of community. Monica continues this commitment to community values by volunteering at the Women’s Legal Centre in the ACT on a pro bono basis and by serving as an active committee member on two of the ACT Law Society’s Committees.
