Leanne Schilf

leanne-schilf Leanne Schilf (C. Dec.) is Groom & Lavers’ conveyancing manager.

With over 30 years of legal experience, Leanne has extensive knowledge on all fields of commercial and residential conveyancing. She has the day-to-day oversight of our conveyancing team and the responsibility for ensuring that our clients’ property transactions proceed with a minimum of fuss.

Leanne currently lives in Oakey with her husband, Noel, and as a result she knows the Oakey area, people, and property market better than any other conveyancer on the Darling Downs.


Leanne commenced employment as a legal secretary in 1984 with a South Burnett law firm. Her keen attention to detail was quickly recognised by the partners of the firm who moved her into a senior conveyancing position. She was later heavily involved in conveyancing properties for the firm as an incidence of the “Tarong Coal Housing Project”.

Subsequently, Leanne worked in a number of large law firms in and around Brisbane where she gained “top tier” conveyancing experience, later returning to the South Burnett law firm “Hawthorn Cuppaidge & Badgery” (“HC&B“). Again, her attention to detail and extensive conveyancing knowledge was quickly recognised by the partners of the firm and as a result she took up position as the firm’s Conveyancing & Estates Manager.

After spending 13 years with HC&B, Leanne later spent a number of years in legal offices throughout North Queensland where her husband Noel was then working. She settled in Toowoomba in 2000 and commenced working with Groom & Lavers in 2004.
