Sherlene Heng

Swaab Attorneys

Sherlene Heng was admitted in 2009 and has practised exclusively in family law.  She completed a Masters of Law (Family Law) in 2014, and in addition to her Bachelor of Laws also has a Bachelor of Commerce which adds depth to her understanding of and ability to resolve complex financial matters.


Sherlene takes a practical approach to assist clients in finalising their property and parenting disputes as smoothly and efficiently as possible.  It is all about the people, and she is acutely aware that separation represents one of the most difficult periods in a person’s life. Her goal is to provide clarity and structure to clients to resolve their legal issues. 


Sherlene is upfront and realistic about the prospects of a client’s case and encourages settlement where appropriate. Her range of experience has also taken her from the office to Court on many occasions, and she is prepared to act assertively on behalf of a client should litigation be necessary.


Sherlene has experience in matters ranging from property and financial matters, parenting arrangements, financial agreements to divorce and at all times will focus on adding value in all services to clients.

Away from the office, Sherlene volunteers at the Inner City Legal Centre and has previously served on volunteer Rotaract committees. Sherlene also speaks Chinese (Mandarin).


Sherlene will be discussing Parenting Orders, parental responsibility and various family law case studies.
