Spectrum Lawyers & Consultants

Having worked in private practice and as an in-house general counsel for both commercial builders and residential builders, Donna Abu-Elias founded Spectrum Lawyers & Consultants as she was passionate about the building and construction industry, but as a mother of a child on the Spectrum she needed to design a practice that was flexible for busy builders and Owners. Flexibility allows all parties to think outside the normal restrictions, and ensure that the primary focus is on completing the building works as efficiently and without defect, but still having the flexibility to work remotely, over the internet, or in your office/home.

Donna was admitted as a lawyer in April 2004, and before that time was working as a paralegal since 1999. Donna has worked for some of the major volume builders in Australia including Burbank Group, Carlisle Homes and Simonds Group. Donna was also a member of the Housing Industry Association (HIA) IR & Legal Committee from 2013 to 2018. Donna has completed her Bachelor of Law\Commerce (with Honours) (LaTrobe University), Diploma in Construction Law (Melbourne University) and Foundations of Directorship course (AICD). 

Spectrum Lawyers & Consultants focuses on Building and construction law – to protect Owners when constructing or maintaining their homes; to assist Builders and/or Owners efficiently resolve building disputes, and work with Builders to develop streamline documented procedures and training to better manage the spectrum of challenges in today’s market.
