About Tanya

Tanya specialises in Elder Law and Wills & Estates at Catherine Henry Lawyers. She has also devised and presents our Growing Stronger podcast.

Tanya holds a Masters of Law and has diverse experience across the full spectrum of elder law services.

Before joining Catherine Henry Lawyers, Tanya worked with renowned elder law practitioner, Richard McCullagh at central coast firm Patrick McHugh & Co and then as a Senior Solicitor at the Elder Abuse Legal Service within the NSW Legal Aid Commission.

Tanya guides clients through the preparation of wills and incapacity documents, estate planning, moving in or out of retirement villages, residential aged care matters, granny flat arrangements, NCAT proceedings and more. She has extensive experience in elder and financial abuse and provides advice and support to help people manage these difficult situations and protect themselves or their loved ones. She has helped clients evict family members from their home and secure the return of money and property that was not freely gifted.

With a genuine passion for making a difference and a flair for explaining complex things in an easy-to-understand way, Tanya’s clients say she takes the fear and difficulty out of their legal issues.

Tanya speaks on elder law topics at community seminars and is involved in various community programs supporting older Australians. She is committed to ensuring older persons are empowered to make fully informed decisions in their own best interests.

Tanya’s goals are to continue helping clients in the field of elder law, to contribute to increased awareness of Elder Law issues through community engagement and to actively find ways to improve the lives of older Australians through law reform.
