Anneka joined Stacks Law Firm in Tamworth in 2013, the year she was admitted as a solicitor of the Supreme Court of New South Wales and the High Court of Australia. She knew that law was the path for her since studying Legal Studies at high school in Coffs Harbour, so she went on to complete her Bachelor of Laws and Bachelor of Arts (Psychology) at the University of New England in Armidale. Anneka first moved to Tamworth for a role with Centacare as a Mediator and Project Officer of the Family Law Pathways Network.
Now specialising in general litigation, Anneka works with clients who have a complaint and wish to have their complaint or dispute resolved. In the past she has handled applications to the Fair Work Commission and Anti-Discrimination Board, as well as Local, District and Supreme Court actions. She believes that the best outcome for a client is to settle a dispute before embarking on lengthy, stressful and expensive court proceedings.
Anneka completes a Master of Applied Law majoring in Commercial Litigation in early 2017. The skills learned from this degree include a deeper appreciation of negotiation and alternative dispute resolution, as well as the finer details of managing complex litigation.
Anneka is a member of the Tamworth Business Chamber and completed the Young Business Mentoring Program with the Chamber in 2014. She is also a member of the Tamworth Family Law Pathways Network and assists Centacare New England North West whenever she can.
Having grown up in the coastal town of Nambucca Heads, Anneka is a beach person at heart, so it’s the one thing she misses in Tamworth. Her favourite beach holiday destination is Bali and she looks forward to visiting on a regular basis.
