Cindy Lowe is a solicitor in the Bowral office of Stacks, in the Southern Highlands of NSW. She was admitted as a lawyer in March 2019.
Cindy started her legal career as a law clerk with J.H. Fisher & Sons, in North Strathfield, while studying for her Diploma in Law. She was subsequently employed with the firm as a solicitor after being admitted.
Cindy has mainly worked in wills and estates, wealth protection, conveyancing and property law. Since joining Stacks, she has gained experience in business sales and purchases, commercial leases and retirement village contracts.
In her wills and estates practice, Cindy is adept at communicating with clients in order to distil their needs, and drafting wills which distribute their assets appropriately. She has administered estates, drafting applications for probate and for letters of administration in the case of intestacy. She has experience preparing and executing powers of attorney and enduring guardianship.
In the property law area, Cindy works with her clients on the sale or purchase of property from commencement to completion, carefully managing the process and the client relationship. Her objective is always to inform to a client in a way that enables them to understand the key issues, which facilitates informed decision making.
Prior to becoming a lawyer, Cindy had a career in banking, with numerous roles including that of capital markets officer. This work had a legal focus, involving working with internal and external legal counsel in the establishment of a number of funding programs in the Australian, Asian and European capital markets and in coordinating due diligence and internal verification processes for a range of public offer documents.
Having a lived experience with disability inspired Cindy to study the law, so that she would be able to support and advocate for individuals with disability, helping them to understand their legal rights and access justice.
Cindy works as a volunteer for the Ability Rights Centre, the community legal centre of IDRS (the Intellectual Disability Rights Service), providing legal assistance for people with cognitive impairment who are in police custody.
She has also done volunteer work at Colo Vale Public School and Mittagong Public School, assisting students with disability and special learning needs with literacy and numeracy.
Outside of work, Cindy enjoys time spent hiking, creating with textiles and baking.
