Kelevi received his Bachelor of Laws from Southern Cross University after receiving his Bachelor of Economics from the University of Queensland. He was admitted to practice in Queensland after completing his legal clerkship on the Gold Coast. He is also admitted to practice as a solicitor in New South Wales and the High Court of Australia.
Working in both Queensland and New South Wales has given Kelevi a wide range of experience in legal procedure and the workings of the different legal systems in those states. He has worked predominantly in civil litigation but also has experience in property law, minor criminal matters, traffic and family law, wills and estates, debt collection, employment matters, and the law of bankruptcy and insolvency.
Having experience in all levels of court processes, state and federal, from the Magistrates Court through to the Court of Appeal, allows Kelevi to deal with nearly any type of matter in the court system with confidence and integrity. He has also appeared before various tribunals including the Queensland Civil and Administrative Tribunal (QCAT) and the Fair Work Commission.
As a professional, working solicitor, Kelevi has always taken pride in being able to ‘think outside the square’ and find resolutions to disputes which are both time and cost effective. He strongly believes that regular communication and attention to detail in service are the keys to providing quality legal services.
Kelevi is a native of Fiji who now lives in Australia. He is deeply involved with rugby union at all levels of the game, having formerly been an active player, and is now involved with coaching at Premier Grade. Kelevi is also a dedicated family man who loves spending time with his close and extended family.
