Maggie holds the first hybrid role of Senior Associate and National Innovation Manager in the Family & Relationship Law group in Sydney. In this unique role, she maintains her family law practice, advocating for clients in financial and parenting disputes, while driving initiatives to innovate and optimise legal processes and operations in the family law space. She enjoys the challenge of exploring different ways to practice law.

Maggie has been practising exclusively in family law since March 2017, after completing the firm’s graduate program. Maggie seeks out challenges in her work and yearns to make valuable contributions to the work she engages in. She excels in bringing a commercial and pragmatic approach to her matters to achieve the best and most cost-effective outcome for her clients.

Growing up with Chinese-Cambodian heritage, Maggie also has a keen interest in fostering diversity & inclusion and wellbeing within the workplace, and in the greater community. She is actively engaged in Lander & Rogers' pro bono and D&I initiatives.


Prior to specialising in family law, Maggie worked at an international commercial law firm in Sydney. During this time, she was involved in complex litigation matters. This experience helped develop her commerciality as well as a pragmatic approach to family law matters.

Prior to joining Lander & Rogers, Maggie worked at the International Criminal Court (ICC) in The Hague, Netherlands, providing legal assistance to the judges of Trial Chamber VI. Maggie also worked at the Khmer Rouge Tribunal in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, assisting international judges and legal advisers on matters of international criminal jurisprudence. Maggie's experience at the ICC and Khmer Rouge Tribunal helped develop her capacity to professionally handle very sensitive issues, as well as a greater ability to work with clients from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds. Maggie's interest in human rights enhances her client focus in family law matters.
