Georgia Briggs

Solicitor

Georgia is the newest member of our family law team and brings with her considerable advocacy experience in family violence, criminal and civil litigation matters.

Georgia graduated from a double degree of Law (Honours) and Arts in mid-2015 from the University of Canberra a year and a half early. She completed her Graduate Diploma in Legal Practice, majoring in Family Law and Criminal Law in October 2015 and was admitted to the Supreme Court of the ACT soon thereafter.

After making a name for herself in Criminal Defence Law, being recognised as one of the top 8 best Criminal Lawyers in Australia under 30 in 2019, she tried her hand at Prosecution before returning to private practice with us in her other area of interest, Family Law.

Georgia came to elringtons with a bright personality, strong advocacy ability, hard-working attitude and client based focus. She knows she can achieve anything through knowledge, passion and hard work and that success in all matters is based on a foundation of trust and communication with the client. Georgia is ready to learn the ropes of Family Law and make as much of a name for herself in this area of law as her last.
