Deborah Awyzio

Family Law Accredited Specialist
Getting to know

Deborah Awyzio

  • Experience

    Deborah is an accredited family law specialist with the Queensland Law Society with over 20 years experience in family law. She is also a nationally accredited mediator and has a number of professional recognitions, including being Chair of the Queensland Law Society’s Domestic Violence Committee and former President of the Family Law Practitioner’s Association in QLD.

  • Role

    Deborah spends at least half of her week conducting mediations as a nationally accredited mediator in both Family Law and Franchising Disputes. This involves working with parties to help them reach a resolution on their matter. When not conducting mediations, Deborah assists her clients in developing and implementing case strategy to move them through the separation phase of their life and empower them to plan for their future as they transition to the next stage of their life.

  • Outside of Work

    Deborah has five children who are nearing the end of their schooling and is currently serving as a driving instructor for three learners in the family. She is also an avid hockey player who recently enjoyed playing with one of her daughters in the same team. Recently, Deborah has discovered a passion for gardening – or, as she puts it, clearing land on her Gold Coast Hinterland property.

  • What’s your favourite thing about being part of the MWS team?

    Seeing the education and enlightenment of clients who haven’t had to think about finances before and seeing them empowered to move into the next phase of their life.

  • What do you wish people knew about financial planning?

    Financial planning makes perfect sense, it really is underrated. We plan everything else in our life, after all. It is surprising that clients do not start with the basics and become financially sound before starting all their other plans.

  • What's your favourite book, movie and food?

    Book: To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee – Atticus Finch fighting for the underdog as a lawyer.

    Movie: Gone With The Wind – “Tomorrow is another day.”

    Food: Roast lamb with the family on a Sunday night.


  • If you could give one piece of advice to the Deborah from 10 years ago, what would it be?

    Enjoy your kids now, they will be teenagers before you know it.

  • What's your weirdest office habit?

    Thinking I can grow indoor plants.

  • What's the one thing about you that people would be surprised to learn?

    I can tap dance.

  • If you could have dinner with anyone past or present, who would it be and why?

    Ita Buttrose – she is a very inspirational female leader.


Ben and the team have been such an asset to our wealth building journey. They’re always readily available for help and advice, specific to our particular scenario. It has been a pleasure working with this team and look forward to many more interactions in the future.

Having come from a planner where we were very disappointed, it has been a refreshing change dealing with Ben & the team at MWS. They are responsive, helpful, go above and beyond to answer questions and most importantly we have found it easy to understand the finance speak and to actually understand what our money is doing. Thanks for a great experience so far!

Guy and the team have given us peace of mind and confidence in our financial future. They keep us engaged and informed, make it easy for us to ask questions and provide us with tangible results in our regular reviews. We would recommend them to anyone.

Excellent service! My girlfriend and I were looking for ways to maximise returns to make to most out of our money. We needed someone with more knowledge in the financial sector than ourselves who we could bounce ideas off and come up with strategies that we hadn’t thought of. Ben and the team at My Wealth Solutions have done exactly that. They have been available for us to ask questions and have been patient with their explanations making sure we understand.

Ben and his team at MWS are very easy to communicate with and they take the time to explain the nuances involved in financial advice as well as being transparent with costs associated, which is refreshing and trustworthy.
