Vonja Young


I am a member of the Family Law team, and my work includes advising clients on relationship property law issues, parenting, custody matters, and court proceedings. I also advise clients on estate litigation and personal property rights.

The breakdown of family relationships can be very complex and stressful. When meeting new clients, I strive to understand where they are at, what brought them to that point, and what is important to them; so that, I can:

  • provide clear advice about how the law will apply to them
  • discuss options for dealing with their matter; and
  • give practical and pragmatic advice to help clients get the best outcome - both short and long term.

I am experienced in all aspects of family law. And, I have a particular interest in relationship property and trust matters. Admitted to practice in 1999, I spent almost 10 years as a general practitioner, which gave me invaluable experience in problem solving, and for structuring relationship property and trust settlements. Since starting at Glaister Ennor in 2008, I have specialised in family law and now head the family law team.

I favour a pragmatic approach to resolving matters, as I have a keen interest in mediation and working closely with a range of professionals such as expert accountants, psychologists, and barristers to ensure ALL of my clients’ needs are met.

I pay particular attention to ensuring my clients not only feel supported but fully understand the process, so they can make informed decisions as we work together to resolve their matter. Please call me. We can then discuss how we might work together to resolve your matter.
