In August 2017, Tanya was named Queensland’s Emergent Woman Lawyer of the Year.
This award is judged by senior representatives of the legal profession in Queensland and recognises women who have been admitted as a legal practitioner for five years or less. It is conferred by the Women Lawyers Association of Queensland (WLAQ), recognising the professional achievements of outstanding young lawyers in Queensland.
The calibre of the shortlisted candidates was outstanding, with significant efforts and accomplishments by all. In this light, Tanya’s achievements in her first 5 years of practice are recognised as extraordinary.
Additionally, the Women Lawyers Association of Queensland then also named Tanya in their “2018 Inspo List” which is a collection of women who inspire others, stating for Tanya “The current Emergent Woman Lawyer of the Year for WLAQ. She has achieved so much for such a young age. One to watch”
