About Us

Cariad Legal understands that no two families are the same and that an Estate Plan is the final act of love and trust that we endow to our family members.

“Cariad” is a Welsh word which means ‘love’ or ‘beloved’ and Cariad Legal was established to continue Catherine’s desire to educate and assist the community and our loved ones with the ethos of love.

Our focus is on protecting your wishes for the future. We know that planning for your family’s future is too important to leave until another day. The transfer of your assets to the next generation requires careful planning and consideration to ensure your intentions are accurately reflected.

Catherine (Hopkin) Lynch

Catherine studied at UWA and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts majoring in French, Japanese and Linguistics, a Graduate Diploma in Education and a Bachelor of Law. After being admitted to the Supreme Court, Catherine gained experience in various areas including contract law and mining law.

Catherine soon chose to specialise in an area that would allow her to work one-on-one with individuals, helping them with an important aspect of the law which affects us all. Catherine has a love for languages and previously worked as a language teacher with both high school students and with adult migrants and refugees.

It is from this background of educating and assisting others that her unique approach to this area of the law has developed. Catherine regularly presents seminars to various groups in the community and also offers pro bono assistance to Cancer Council members.
