A  Fellow and Council member of the Australia College of Strata Lawyers, Amanda is a leading strata professional and fierce advocate for strata owners 

Michael Teys

Welcome to my home town!

My family and I moved from Bondi to Mudgee in May 2021. I’ve been lucky enough to lead my Sydney strata law practice from this beautiful part of our country since then.

Wide open spaces, fresh country air, a thriving food and wine scene: Mudgee does not disappoint. I’m thrilled to be able to bring my fellow strata professionals to Mudgee for a day of learning and connection. 

I have carefully curated the CPD education I know you’ll love. If you’ve ever experienced my teaching style, you’ll know it’s about as far from “conservative lawyer” as you can get. Demystifying the legal complexities of strata living is at the heart of everything I do, and I’ve made it my mission to empower our strata managers with practical skills and up-to-date knowledge, because I know it is through YOU that the experience of strata owners is improved. 

I’ve had so much fun choosing the venues, food and wine that we’re going to share together. I absolutely can’t wait to welcome you to Mudgee!
