Cassandra Adorni-Braccesi, Associate


Prior to my admission, I was employed as a law clerk at a busy criminal law firm on the Gold Coast.  This gave me grounding and insight into the criminal law process from an early stage in my career.  I have been employed at Wallace & Wallace Lawyers since being admitted in late 2014.

Family and criminal law have been my practice areas since my admission.  I am passionate about these areas of law.  I often meet clients during the most stressful and confronting time of their lives.  I am empathetic and listen carefully to my client’s situation and their concerns.  I am upfront in my advice to ensure my clients have a thorough knowledge of the process and the likely outcome.  This helps my clients in making an informed decision about their matter.

I have appeared in the Family Court, the Federal Circuit Court, the Magistrates Court, the District Court, the Supreme Court and the Coroner’s Court on a regular basis throughout my career.  I am a confident advocate for my clients and I enjoy the unique challenges of appearing at Court.

Outside of work, I play netball competitively.  I am a member of Galaxy Netball Club, a supportive and friendly club in Mackay.  I enjoy hiking and have completed several long distance hiking trips.  If I am not at netball or hiking, you will generally find me baking or trying (this far unsuccessfully) to grow vegetables in my garden.

Cassandra Adorni-Braccesi provided not only an exceptional level of service but also provided her time, knowledge and expertise in a particularly complex case. She is an extremely skilled solicitor and I would highly recommend her for any legal matters. I would certainly use Wallace & Wallace for any legal services in the future.


I consider Cassandra Adorni-Braccesi as being an excellent lawyer and extremely good when it comes to representing a client in court.  I had confidence in her ability right from the first meeting.


I have seen other lawyers about this matter previously but I felt the service I got from Lara and Cassandra was outstanding. They both understood my position and understood where I was willing to be negotiable. I could not have asked for a better outcome or better legal representation.


I would like to say that the confidence that Cassandra gave me in my case was of the highest level. I felt secure that she would give me the best possible outcome and she delivered it. Thank you so much. Cassandra you are very professional.


Very professional and precise and a pleasing result.


Throughout extremely distressing encounters and phone calls, I was always treated with compassion and spoken to with respect. Thank you.


There is no word in the English language I can use to describe how satisfied I have been with Cassandra from Wallace & Wallace. Cassandra has been a pleasure to have on my side. Always knowledgeable and inspires confidence in her clients. I could not recommend highly enough.




Cassandra was amazing, she made a very stressful situation as easy as possible.


I have recommended Cassandra a number of times over the years and will continue to recommend Wallace & Wallace Lawyers in the future.  Thank you.
