Director and Principal
I am the Director and Principal of RTLegal Pty Ltd which was incorporated in 2014. I operated as Rosetta Traficante Barrister and Solicitor from 2005 to 2010 and as RTLegal from 2010 and 2014.
I have a Bachelor of Arts degree and a Bachelor of Laws degree from La Trobe University. Prior to this I enjoyed working as a hairdresser in the beauty industry.
I was admitted into practice in 2003. I first practised in Family Law in Northcote and then in Melbourne. Over the years I have developed a practice in:
- Family Law
- Wills and Probate
- Conveyancing and
- Victims of crime.
In Family Law matters I seek to help my clients work through the issues of their separation and divorce in a dignified manner. When families separate there are numerous legal and non-legal issues. I am able to direct clients to relevant professionals who can assist them with various issues and problems.
My focus is to ensure that my client’s achieve a just and equitable outcome as soon as possible and that in matters involving children the care and living arrangements made are in their best interests.
I seek to assist my clients to avoid litigation wherever possible. I practise Collaborative Law and I encourage clients to attend mediation with or without their lawyers.
I have extensive court experience in the Family Court, Federal Circuit Court and Magistrates Court.
Outside of work I am a caring wife and mother and friend and a very keen shopper.
