Rita Di Stefano – Director

A proud native of Ascoli Piceno, Le Marche, Italy who migrated to Australia in 1957 with my family. After enjoying a career in the legal industry as a paralegal I decided I wanted to advance my skillset and became a Solicitor in December 2005. I specialise in the conveyancing of real estate and businesses, commercial leasing, Agreements, Wills, Powers of Attorney, appointment of guardianship, liquidation of estates and contesting of wills or claims against deceased estates. Still a full-time practising solicitor, I am also a member of the Rooty Hill St Vincent de Paul Society and of the parish council at St Aidan’s Catholic Church.
I’m passionate about the rule of law, my family, as well as my Italian heritage and I’m excited to be involved in the CSI Club to help it grow and prosper. Being a mum to two Australian born children and a Nonna to two cheeky grandchildren, I want to ensure that they, and future generations, have the opportunity to learn about and experience our rich Italian culture through the Club.
