New magistrate mingles with locals
Lismore’s new federal magistrate Anne Demack attended a special meet and greet on Tuesday organised by Lismore’s Pathways Network to get to know other people who work in family law in the local community.
Anne is a federal magistrate in Brisbane but will travel to Lismore throughout the year to preside over family law matters.
“I’m thrilled about the appointment – this is a beautiful part of the world,” Anne said while attending the event at the Left Bank. “Prior to being appointed federal magistrate in 2008 I was a regional practitioner myself – it’s a wonderful way of life.”
Funded by the Attorney General’s department, the Pathways Network helps connect people working in family law such as solicitors, court workers and people in the community sector such a mediators and counsellors. The ultimate aim of connecting people is to ensure good networks and working relationships that enable separated families to get more holistic and consistent advice and support.
