Elizabeth Becker


Institutional Abuse & Family Law

It was her intense interest in social justice and a motivation to help people, especially those trapped in domestic violence, that helped propel Elizabeth into a career in family law. She has practiced as a lawyer within one of Australia’s largest plaintiff law firms and also as the Principal Lawyer at inTouch Multicultural Centre Against Family Violence.

During her career, Elizabeth has overseen the establishment and accreditation of Australia’s first Community Legal Centre housed within a family violence practice and represented her clients in a unique, multidisciplinary and holistic approach to family law. Elizabeth has also collaborated in a ground-breaking Health-Justice Partnership with Monash Hospital in which she established an outreach program and saw patients of Dandenong Hospital who required family law legal advice and representation.

In the meantime, Elizabeth also managed to have a family of three daughters, which explains her particular commitment to combatting family violence. “I was mindful of the statistics which indicate that one in three women are victims of family violence,” she says. That statistic and commitment to social justice has led Elizabeth to focus her career on Family and Relationship Law.

When not consumed by the law and its bearing on problems with relationships, Elizabeth cultivates her love of various cultures by mixing it up in the kitchen. She has travelled extensively and lived in the United Kingdom and New York. She is also addicted to flea markets.

Elizabeth gained her Bachelor of Arts (Hons) and Bachelor of Laws at the University of Melbourne. She practices in all parts of the law that bear on relationships and families, including Intervention Orders, property disputes and settlements, separation, mediation and children’s matters. She operates as a family lawyer in our Melbourne and Dandenong offices and is a Partner of the firm.
