This year’s Australasian Law Awards Young Private Practice Lawyer of the Year (35 or under) winner loves her job, and it’s not hard to see why. A family law specialist, Katalin Lello sees her practice area as “such a human area of law”.

“You get to help people every day, help families, and it’s something I’m really passionate about. It’s a great industry and profession – there’s a lot of collegiality”, she told Australasian Lawyer on the awards red carpet.

The Lander & Rogers senior associate considers herself to be “proudly waving the flag today to all the family lawyers out there”, and added that it was exciting for a family lawyer to be taking home the trophy.

Judges described Lello as displaying “an impressive breadth of excellence”.

“From pro bono to high value cases, they get her excellent attention and care. She contributes to the improvement of the firm, clients and the community’s lives”, they said.

Lello bested leading candidates in a highly competitive category, including Emily Barrett (Johnson Winter Slattery), Huiming Lin (AusLaw Partners), Justine Tao Zhou (Quantum Law Group), Lauren John (Allens), Tom Henderson (Baker McKenzie), and Zefy Souvlakis (Ethos Migration Lawyers)
