Leia Mathai graduated from Western Sydney University in 2003 with a combined law degree. She has since worked in private practice in various areas of law including personal injury litigation, conveyancing and commercial law, both in Sydney and Canberra.
During her career she has worked with boutique law firms and mid-tier law firms including Sparke Helmore Lawyers. Leia has collaborated with a wide range of clients including individuals, government bodies and large corporations.
She spent nearly 3 years working in London for well respected UK law firm Russell-Cooke Solicitors. During her time in the UK she was able to fulfil her life long dream to study and practise law in another country, whilst also allowing her to see the world.
After evaluating her collective professional experiences and insights gained whilst working for other law firms, Leia decided to explore a more independent career path in late 2018. Choosing to change the way she continued practising law, she now focuses her expertise in the area of Property Law. In 2019, Leia joined M Legal to build a practice that aligned better with her personal views and values.
Leia strongly believes in open communication and providing a high quality service to her clients. She is dedicated to making the legal process in the area of Property Law simple and clear, ensuring that clients are getting the service and advice they are paying for, from a qualified legal professional.
Currently, Leia lives and works locally in Canberra, ACT. Outside of work, she is a mum of 3 and loves spending time with her family and friends.
