Courtney Aitken Solicitor

Courtney completed a Bachelor of Laws at James Cook University, graduating with First Class Honours. After completing her Graduate Diploma of Legal Practice through the College of Law, Courtney was admitted to the Legal Profession.

Courtney then moved back to her hometown of Mackay and completed a Graduate Program at a Mackay firm, prior to relocating back to Townsville. Her passion is Family Law and the vast majority of her practise and experience has been in this area. After working at a local Townsville firm for some time, Courtney then joined Ruhl Family Law Centre upon its establishment.

When out of the office (if ever), Courtney has a passion for travelling and embracing all different cultures and walks of life. From Myanmar to Laos to France to China. You name it, it’s on her list!

Top 5 reasons why Courtney loves Family Law

  1. Assisting clients through what may well be the most difficult period of their lives and making the transition to their New Beginning as smooth as possible;
  2. These issues matter. Children, families, homes. To play a vital role in securing their future is such an important role;
  3. The ability to build a rapport with clients, by regularly meeting and communicating with them to step them through every stage of the process;
  4. The diversity. Each family is so unique and every matter is different; and
  5. The relief and happiness when people are able to know they have proper care arrangements in place for their children, or have properly protected their assets, to enable them to move forward.
