Stefanie commenced her studies in Germany before moving to Australia in 2002.

With a background in nursing and social work, Stefanie’s strengths involve outstanding client care, a quality she further fostered whilst working with disconnected youth amongst other marginalised groups. After completing a Bachelor of Laws at Griffith University in 2015, Stefanie became a Judge’s Associate in the District Court in 2016.

This position provided valuable experience in the court processes of both criminal and civil matters as well as the Planning and Environment Court and Children’s Court of Queensland.  During this time, she developed her interest in alternative dispute resolution, justice mediation and negotiation, as well as her passion for advocacy. Her experience of the criminal justice system has reinforced her commitment to equal and fair social justice.

Stefanie joined Gatenby Criminal Lawyers as a criminal law clerk and expects to be admitted as a Solicitor in the Supreme Court in June 2017.

As a criminal law clerk, Stefanie can personally appear for mentions in the Magistrates, District and Supreme Courts, and interacts with clients, the prosecution, Magistrates and Judges on a day-to-day basis.
