About

Cath is a lawyer at Mahoney’s working predominantly with Antony Harrison.

Cath has rejoined us at Mahoneys after a 5 year break that saw Cath working as an in-house lawyer at a quarrying business in northern New South Wales. This experience has enabled Cath to become more client focused and able to seek practical solutions to the legal problems.

Cath believes the foundation to any client relationship is open and honest communication with the client from the outset. Once this is established clear instructions follow, in which the client’s expectations are determined and goals become achievable.
