Carey-Ann Brett

Lawyer

Telephone: (08) 9328 6226

Carey-Ann joined HFM Legal in November 2020.

You would be forgiven if you thought that Carey-Ann had an American accent. However she informs us that it’s from intensive bouts of watching the Simpsons as a child. Luckily for our clients, Carey-Ann is no Lionel Hutz. In fact, Carey-Ann has focused on developing a niche speciality within the practice of contested (and non-contested) wills & probate.

Carey-Ann understands that those areas can be fraught with emotion and therefore aims to deliver advice compassionately with the aim of a cost effective resolution.

Outside of the practice of law, Carey-Ann is a current councillor at the City of Gosnells, having been elected in 2017.
