Amy Sanders-Robbins

Director & Family Law Accredited Specialist

Amy graduated from Griffith University with a degree in both Law and Psychology. Her expertise in both of these areas has shaped Bespoke Family Lawyers into the firm it is today.

Over the past 15 years (and counting), Amy has drawn on her background in both psychology and  law to expertly untangle complex parenting and financial arrangements (like family businesses, trusts and companies) and create personalised legal solutions that meet her clients’ needs and goals.

Bespoke Family Lawyers is the natural result of Amy’s passion to help others recover from separation and divorce, and move forward to live their best lives. 

Hi there, I’m Amy!

When I became a mother, I had an AHA moment and realised I could be a better family lawyer by expanding my focus beyond the legal stuff. After all there are so many facets of life to be figured out when you’re going through separation.

This realisation drove me to leave a comfortable role and found Bespoke Family Lawyers, so I could make this holistic approach a priority in how I practice family law. I haven’t looked back since.

Even though I help people through some of their most challenging times, there’s something special about seeing someone bravely pick themselves up and use the opportunity to transform their life. To become the master of their destiny again. I love witnessing and being a part of this transformation!

This is what I want for everyone who works with Bespoke Family Lawyers. 

I’ve helped more than 1000 people navigate their separation and divorce. Many of them have been business people and high net-worth individuals, but they’ve also been husbands and wives, parents and grandparents.

That’s why I work hard to understand their pain, stresses, and goals. This superpower helps me look more deeply into the solutions I’m creating to understand what has led people to where they are right now, what needs to be addressed to make their future path smoother, and how can I support them in moving forward to live their best life.

When I’m not using these superpowers at Bespoke Family Lawyers, you’ll find me hanging out with my family, painting, journalling, meditating (if I can turn my mind off), or enjoying a stroll along the beach or in the bush.  Time in nature takes me back to my country roots and re-energises me. 

Rachel Stuart

Our senior lawyer Rachel brings a wealth of knowledge and compassion to the Bespoke Family Lawyers team.

It’s about people – their emotions, their futures, and their well-being. By taking a holistic approach to family law, Rachel is able to help our clients navigate the legal process and emerge stronger, ready to move forward.  

Rachel’s experience spans the entire spectrum of family law, from intricate property disputes to complex parenting matters.

I’m passionate about our uniquely holistic approach to family law. I love that we take the time to understand each person with his or her own unique needs and concerns and tailor our approach and solutions. This shows our genuine care and commitment, 

 I know how important it is for clients to feel in control at a time when their life is changing dramatically. This is why I keep each client super informed at every step of the process, ensuring they feel supported and empowered throughout their legal journey. 

When I take my lawyer hat off, you’ll find me unwinding and reconnecting with the outdoors. I love camping, hiking and going to the beach.

Chiung-wen (Cheryl) Chang

Family Lawyer

Through her previous experience in public health, Cheryl has become passionate about helping people resolve their family law matters so that they can move forward with certainty, clarity, and happiness.

Cheryl joined Bespoke Family Lawyers in September 2020 after finishing her Juris Doctorate at Bond University, while completing her practical legal training. She has since completed her Graduate Diploma in Legal Practice at Bond University.

Cheryl’s background in research means that she loves deep-diving into the documents for each of our clients to ensure we are 100% across their financial circumstances so we can explore solutions that reflect their needs. This talent and commitment adds so much value to our clients and team.

Hi, I’m Cheryl!

Before starting my law degree, I worked in healthcare administration and public health. In my roles, I spoke to and saw many people who had experienced domestic violence, divorce, separation, and vulnerability.

Most of these people felt unsupported and were experiencing high levels of conflict. Their mental health and wellbeing had been negatively impacted and they had lost their sense of self.

Through that experience, I’m now motivated to improve the way couples and families go through divorce and separation by providing them with the opportunity to make informed decisions, become empowered, and have access to emotional, financial and legal support.

With the right support and guidance, I believe it is possible for people going through separation and divorce to move forward and find joy in their lives again.

On my days off, you will find me spending time with my partner, travelling, or watching a good drama.

Hi, I’m Tanisha! 

I’m currently completing my paralegal services diploma. As a child of divorce, I intimately understand the emotional toll that family law matters can take. This firsthand knowledge fuels my passion for providing meaningful support to our clients beyond the mere legal aspects. 

The most rewarding part of my role is witnessing the positive transformations that our clients undergo as they navigate their separation. My role as a paralegal allows me to contribute to this process by ensuring that Bespoke Family Lawyers delivers organised and seamless assistance to our valued clients. 

When I’m not getting stuck into my studies or assisting our wonderful clients, I enjoy staying active at the gym, getting lost in the pages of a good book, or exploring new restaurants with my partner and friends.

Amanda Stinson

Client Support & Operations Manager

Amanda has worked in the legal industry since 2003, starting at a suburban personal injuries practice as a receptionist. She’s since worked for various firms, originally practising in Insurance Law, before moving on to discover family law with Amy in 2016.

Amanda joined the Bespoke Family Lawyers team in early 2019, having worked with Amy at her previous firm.

She has a Certificate IV in Business Administration and 17 years of legal and secretarial experience. She’s also a Registered Justice of the Peace (Qual).

Amanda wears many hats in our team and is our go-to person for support, making things happen and streamlining everything we do so we offer the very best to our clients.

Hi, I’m Amanda!

I absolutely love how rewarding our work is. It is sometimes really hard to see our clients trying to navigate a complicated issue with their Ex, but it’s very satisfying being able to (even in a small way) help them get back on track.

Every family situation is unique – there is definitely no “one size fits all” approach to family law. This makes our job interesting and challenging.

In my spare time, I love to take my camper trailer out with my family, relax with some craft, or tend to my garden.
