Isabelle Russell


Albany Office
Family Matters


Isabelle joined McVeagh Fleming as a Research Clerk in 2015 while studying towards a BA/LLB (Majoring in Spanish) at the University of Auckland and became a graduate Law Clerk after finishing her studies in 2016.  Isabelle is a Solicitor in the Family Team as of August 2017.

Starting, building, maintaining, protecting, repairing, and even ending, relationships at every stage of life is Isabelle's priority.  She can assist with family law matters across the "cradle to grave" spectrum, working closely with Alissa Bell, Anna Norcross and Richard Lyttelton.

Outside interests

Isabelle loves to spend time with family and friends, and get active via the gym, yoga, sport and as many other ways as possible.  Otherwise, she can be found experimenting in the kitchen, keeping up her Spanish, enjoying art and literature, and, more often than not, dreaming about her next travel adventure.
