Tegan is the Director and Principal Lawyer of Martens Legal.
After close to 10 years working in traditional law firms, Tegan felt an overwhelming desire to make a change in her life. Why? Because, put simply, her values and approach never quite aligned.
So, after plenty of research and fact checking (typical lawyer!), in 2017 she opened Martens Legal and has not looked back since.
It always has been and always will be Tegan’s passion to help people. That is what drew her to, and has kept her in, family law.
Guiding someone through some of the most difficult times and decisions of their life with care and sincerity is her primary goal in everything she does at Martens Legal.
Tegan prides herself on her people-focused approach to law, and it is an ethos that she ensures is shared by her entire team.
Her particular interest in family law matters is property settlement negotiations. Her experience in these matters is wide-ranging. From the common asset divisions involving the family home and superannuation to more complex asset divisions involving businesses and corporate entity structures such as trusts. Tegan’s aim is to also keep even the most complicated asset division matters as simple as possible.
Outside of the law Tegan, in her own words, “loves anything to do with property renovation and design” and realestate.com.au is easily her favourite website.
Tegan spends weeknights on the court, playing both Netball and Basketball. She is also an avid Kayo subscriber, following the NBA, Suncorp Super Netball and Formula 1.
On weekends, being the ambivert she is, Tegan usually enjoys a mixture of quality time with the important people in her life (including her beautiful husky, Ruby) and down time at home to rest and recharge!
