Kisane Bird is an Associate in our Family Law team. Kisane joined Neumann & Turnour in 2006 while completing her university studies. She undertook a supervised traineeship in the family law section and was admitted as a solicitor. She was appointed as an Associate of Neumann & Turnour in 2012.
Kisane practices primarily in family law, with a broad range of experience in forms of alternative dispute resolution such as mediations and without prejudice conferences, as well as advocacy. She sensitively guides clients through the process of separation and divorce, advising them thoroughly and negotiating practical solutions for issues from care of children to property settlements. Kisane has acted for clients in a number of unique cases with international aspects, as well as issues such as the validity of a religious marriage in Australia that did not meet Australian legal requirements.
Kisane is also experienced in drafting financial agreements that meet clients’ unique needs, both prior to marriage or a de facto relationship, and following separation.
Outside of family law, Kisane has experience in commercial dispute matters including debt recovery and contractual disputes.
Kisane is currently on Maternity Leave and will be returning to our practice mid 2018.
