Cathy Fon – Lawyer
Cathy Fon has been working as a lawyer since 2005. After a year as His Honour Justice Cullinane’s Associate (2003) Cathy completed her Articles, was Admitted and then commenced working as a lawyer on a part-time basis, while raising two children with her husband Peter.
Cathy is a true Townsville soul. She grew up in Rowes Bay, went to St Margaret Mary’s High School and after working for over a decade in Business Management at the ATO and for Qld Health, she enrolled at James Cook University to do her Law Degree. Cathy is teased in the halls of O’Shea & Dyer. She has a first-class honours degree… a rare and revered award - and the true hallmark of the conscientious ‘mature-aged’ student.
We know Cathy to be professional, clever and extremely organised. More than that, she is kind, insightful and committed to providing quality, affordable legal services for people in Townsville.
Cathy is a prolific reader; a wonderful cook and she offers a private travel agent service to her family that is second to none (she can organise a European vacation or a trip to Sydney with tickets to a show at the drop of a hat). If not at the airport, you might see Cathy out on her bike or walking the Strand. Cathy is married to Peter. They have two very busy high-school aged kids, Luka and Helena, who love sport, music, chess and all things Harry Potter!
