LEGAL. EMOTIONAL. FINANCIAL. RESPECTFUL. SOLUTIONS.

We are on a mission to help separated people achieve better divorce outcomes. We will disrupt the industry to inspire a change to the traditional way divorce is negotiated. We will use our influence to create a positive social change and reduce the negative impact of divorce on the overall community.

At Resolve Divorce, we are collaborators. We help to navigate the legal process of separation and divorce through an approach that encourages mutually beneficial compromise without the negativity or emotional toll of traditional pathways.

Our experienced and qualified team strive to provide a divorce experience that breaks away from the conventional mold of lengthy, hostile and complex negotiations so that decisions related to things like the division of assets, living arrangements and child support are done so with your family wellbeing at the core.

This holistic approach to divorce has inspired us to create and introduce a wellbeing program that gives you access to helpful information and supports throughout your journey to achieve an amicable and fair settlement. Contact us and ask us how this might work for you.

MEET CHANEL MARTIN!

SENIOR SOLICITOR

Chanel joined the firm in early 2017 after having worked as a Judge’s Associate for Justice Berman and Justice Dawe at the Family Court of Australia.  Her familiarity with litigation, the judicial system and court processes, makes her our go-to for all cases that require the courts intervention. She is an excellent researcher, has a strong understanding of the intricacies of family law and is always able to find solutions where unusual or complex questions of law are concerned.

Though a strong litigator, Chanel works empathetically with clients to achieve positive outcomes for them whilst always giving sensible and realistic advice.

She fits our team because she is highly motivated, innovative, and full of fresh perspective. She also has a dynamic personality and can easily relate to clients, opposing solicitors, professional staff and of course, the judges; always a positive asset to have on your side!

MEET ASHLEE WACHTEL!

SOLICITOR

Ashlee joined the firm in 2019, having spent all of her prior career working in Family Law both in Melbourne and Adelaide. As is becoming a common theme for us here at Resolve, Ashlee started her career as a Judge’s Associate for Judge Hartnett (as Her Honour then was) in the Federal Circuit Court of Australia at Melbourne. Thankfully she returned back to Adelaide and progressed to working in private practice in a prominent local family law firm.

Ashlee’s love of Family Law started through her University studies when she found Family Law to be an area of law where she truly felt that she could make a difference to people’s lives. This passion for the area led her to be awarded the University Prize for the top student studying Family Law in her year level and she hasn’t looked back since.

Ashlee was drawn to us at Resolve Divorce for a number of reasons- but predominately because the Resolve Divorce approach to Family Law and achieving positive outcomes for our clients resonated with her values.

Talents
Keeping calm and empathetic in what can often be a stressful time for her clients and helping them achieve their best possible outcome.

Life
In her free time, Ashlee loves spending time with her friends and family and her pet dog, Maggie the Labrador. You will also often be able to find Ashlee in the kitchen baking anything sweet (particularly chocolate flavoured!)

Loves
Ashlee loves to keep fit, whether that be by walking her dog along the beach in Summer or attending her regular KX Pilates workouts. She is also a passionate Adelaide Crows supporter and loves her footy.

Coffee
Doesn’t drink coffee but loves a cup of Tea!

MEET GIORGIA MAIORANA!

LAW CLERK

Giorgia recently joined the firm to provide assistance to our busy family lawyers. She is now a valuable resource and we couldn’t imagine the office without her bubbly personality and diligent assistance.

Giorgia is in her final year of a combined Bachelor of Laws (Honours) and Bachelor of Business (Human Resource Management) degree. She also studies a Diploma of Languages (Italian) hoping to one day impress her Nonno and Nonna with her semi-fluent speaking skills. In 2017, Giorgia studied at La Scuola Dante Alighieri in the Marche region of Italy, which gave her the opportunity to practice her speaking skills and eat plenty of pasta.

Giorgia also feels strongly about social justice and volunteers with Red Cross Australia.

Giorgia plans to be admitted to practice in April 2020, upon receiving her GDLP.
