Getting to know

Lisa Foley

Lisa is a family lawyer who is recognised in the Doyles Guide for 2019 as a recommended leading family lawyer and parenting and children’s matter lawyer. She is also a 2018 and 2019 board member of the Family Law Practitioners Association of Queensland. Lisa’s professional experience extends to parenting, property settlement, spousal maintenance, domestic violence, child support and, an area she is particularly passionate about, international child abduction. Lisa’s approach specialises in effective goal setting with a client, who she then works with to achieve those goals in the most efficient and cost-effective way possible.

  • Experience

    Lisa holds a Bachelor of Arts and a Bachelor of Law with Honours from the Queensland University of Technology and has worked exclusively in family law and child protection law since her admission in 2006. She is a qualified collaborative law practitioner and believes in collaborative law and mediation as successful alternatives to litigation.

  • Role

    Lisa is Managing Director at DA Family Lawyers, which is recognised on the 2019 Doyles Guide as a leading family law firm in Brisbane. Working in collaboration with My Wealth Solutions, Lisa is available to help with any family legal matters, including: prenuptial agreements, divorce, property settlement, child support and spousal maintenance.

  • Outside of Work

    Lisa has two children, aged 4 and 2, and a third will be joining the family in April 2019. Outside of work, she enjoys spending time with her young family and keeping fit and active. To that end, Lisa is a qualified body balance instructor.

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

    Connecting our family law clients with financial planners who are realistic and practical, so that our clients can be assisted with financial planning before negotiating something like a property settlement and in giving effect to a property settlement.

  • What do you wish people knew about financial planning?

    That you will understand what your financial planner is explaining to you. Financial planning is a collaborative process, it will open your eyes to being forward thinking in terms of making financial decisions.

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

    Book: Tully by Paulina Simons

    Movie: Any dance film or legal drama (Dirty Dancing, The Firm, A Few Good Men)

    Food: Chocolate!!

     

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

    You will do things you never thought you could.

  • What's your weirdest office habit?

    Walking quickly around the office as my theory is that great workers are fast walkers.

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

    I love to dance! I am constantly dancing around the house. In 2018, I was a contestant in the Dancing CEO’s, in which each year Brisbane’s leading CEOs swap the boardroom for the City Hall dance floor in front of 1000 guests to support the prevention of domestic violence and raise money for Women’s Legal Service.

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

    Beyonce and Jay-Z (because Beyonce is life!)

CLIENT TESTIMONIAL
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!

CLIENT TESTIMONIAL

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.
