About Karen.

Karen Hickson provides paralegal support to the Family Law team and has been with Selvaggio Lawyers for over 20 years. She has been working in legal services for more than 25 years and has diverse experience across a variety of fields.

At Selvaggio Lawyers, Karen’s role involves the provision of support and administration for the Family Law matters undertaken by the firm, including the preparation of various Court documents, managing Court appointments and requirements, and liaising with clients. She is highly experienced in all aspects of the role, including gathering property and financial data then processing it on behalf of family law clients to further their case.

Karen’s key strengths are her ability to liaise with a wide range of people, her organisational skills and her outstanding attention to detail, as well as ensuring the best use of information arising from evidentiary records in family law matters.

Selvaggio Lawyers were invaluable in helping me through a difficult time, after unfairly being restricted from seeing my children. I didn’t know where to start. I was dealing with lots of issues at that time and overwhelming emotions. They walked me through the process and made it easy. They answered my questions, no matter how trivial, and took time out of their day to attend to my enquiries.


We have been involved with Selvaggio Lawyers for approximately ten years, almost on a daily basis, due to the high volume of conveyancing work they carry out on our behalf. Selvaggio Lawyers' service has been second to none, with all work carried out in an highly efficient and prompt manner and our dealings with all staff have shown them to be professional and willing to 'go the extra mile' as our legal representatives.

Selvaggio Lawyers were kind and caring through a very difficult time. They provided honest and upfront advice, without the drama.


I have worked with Gillian Leahy of Selvaggio Lawyers since January 2014 on the purchase, sale and assignment of more than 15 properties. The transactions have included several complex Option Deeds and Deeds of Assignment. Gillian’s dedication, professionalism and rapid turnaround of documents have many times made the difference between winning and losing a deal. I recommend Selvaggio Lawyers highly for any property-related matters.
