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.


Robert Creaton and his skilful team helped me and my wife through the process of financial planning by guiding us to take the right steps. I would recommend Robert and My Wealth Solutions to anyone who wants to secure their future without any stress.

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.

Joining My Wealth Solutions was one of the best decisions I’ve made – they have a great team there and communication is fantastic. Ben walked me through the whole process and I knew I was in safe hands with the transparent explanations of all aspect’s of what I could expect. I can’t recommend them highly enough and am excited about what’s to come.

So far my experience with Ben and the team at My Wealth Solutions has been exemplary. They have offered fantastic, reliable and prompt advice and their knowledge far outweighs the cost of service. I would recommend this route to anyone seeking financial advice. Looking forward to my future even more so thanks to My Wealth Solutions.

The team are extremely professional and helpful. Ben has taught me so much already and now I feel like real wealth creation is the reality of my future rather than something that I’m just hoping for. Emily has always gone over and above to make everything really easy for us as well as answering any questions we might have quickly and efficiently. I have and will continue to recommend MWS to any of my friends or family.

Changed to Ben and the guys at My Wealth and have found them very active in setting up my finances after years of neglect. I liked that Ben challenged our thinking, was flexible in setting up our finances, and the team were very active in setting everything up.
