Liz Catton


Before following her passion for family law, Liz practised in the areas of commercial and corporate law in Brisbane and Melbourne.

Liz was the Principal Lawyer on a team responsible for significant reforms to natural resources legislation in Qld drafting the Water Act 2000 and has also worked in-house for NAB and the Australian Banking Industry Ombudsman.

While commercial and corporate law was incredibly rewarding Liz was drawn to family law where she felt she could really make a difference. Liz’s broader legal background allows her to draw upon the skills she has developed over many years and makes her a talented lawyer, negotiator, Court litigator and mediator.

Prior to establishing Catton & Tondelstrand Lawyers, Liz was the Co-Practice Group Leader for a large family law division of a national law firm.

Liz is a QLS Accredited Family Law Specialist and has been recognised in Doyle’s Guide as a Leading Family Law and Divorce lawyer on the Sunshine Coast in 2018 and 2019.
