Elena Arifin
Associate Lawyer

Elena loves helping people. Whether you are buying, selling, entering into a business deal, planning ahead to provide for your family or dealing with the loss of a loved one, Elena will calmly and confidently walk you through the legal nitty gritty.

Elena understands that the law can be daunting, but with her sunny disposition, clear communication and common sense approach she will make your experience as pleasant as possible.

Elena has a Bachelor of Laws and a Bachelor of International Studies (fun fact: she learnt Mandarin Chinese at uni! Just don’t test her on it too closely as she’s a little rusty …)

Having previously practised as a lawyer in a boutique firm in Sydney, Elena recently made the move to the nation’s capital with her young family. She is thoroughly enjoying the lack of traffic and is finding the weather so inviting that she regrets not making the move years ago. Elena simply cannot get enough of Canberra’s wide outdoors … you may just bump into her hiking a mountain, complete with toddler in tow!

Kylee Batchelor
Conveyancer

Kylee is approachable and loves to meet new people. She has almost finished an Associate Degree in Law with a Conveyancing major and has been accepted to study a Bachelor of Laws.

Before journeying to “the dark side,” Kylee wanted to be a journalist. She attained a Certificate IV in Communication and Media and remains interested in advertising and writing.

Kylee loves being creative, is a grammar nerd and wishes crochet was an extreme sport so she’d sound more interesting.

While Kylee describes herself as dedicated, persistent and sensible, at Namadgi Legal we prefer to think of her as kind, funny and vivacious. She is always happy to have a chat. Not much stresses her out and she is totally chill with chaos, probably because she has four small children who have taught her the art of patience.

Accounts Coordinator

Social Responsibility

We minimise our paper waste, use technology to improve efficiency, recycle and purchase recycled products.

Canberra is Ngunnawal Country

We acknowledge the Ngunnawal people as traditional custodians of the Australian Capital Territory and pay our respects to their Elders past, present and emerging.

We celebrate the living culture and connection of the Ngunnawal people to this land, on which they have performed ceremonies of celebration, initiation and renewal for many centuries.

We wholeheartedly support reconciliation and look forward to genuine and meaningful recognition of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people as the First Australians.
