Brisbane-based Tuskeen Jacobs, a Rostron Carlyle Rojas Lawyers Partner and head of the family law department, has been appointed as a Judge of the Federal Circuit and Family Court of Australia (Division 2).

Tuskeen has been appointed to the Brisbane Registry and will start in the position on 8 July 2024.

RCR Partner Greg Rostron said, on behalf of the partners: “We are incredibly proud of Tuskeen’s appointment. In the 13 years that Tuskeen has been with Rostron Carlyle Rojas Lawyers, she has been, and continues to be, an inspiration to all of us.

“Not only has Tuskeen been an integral part of the growth and culture of the firm, she has led by example in her diligence and hard work, her attention to detail, and most importantly in her ethics and desire for justice and fairness for her clients and staff alike.

“These qualities will guide her judgments over the coming years. We couldn’t think of a better person to reflect those values on the bench.”

The Chief Justice of the Federal Circuit and Family Court of Australia, the Honourable William Alstergren AO, said he was delighted with the announcement.


“Ms Jacobs is a highly experienced solicitor who has worked exclusively in family law throughout her career. Her reputation as an incredibly capable lawyer with a professional and pragmatic approach to helping separating families resolve their disputes will be a very welcome addition to the Court,” Chief Justice Alstergren said.

Tuskeen graduated from James Cook University with a Bachelor of Arts in 1997 and then completed a Bachelor of Laws in 2001, also from James Cook University.

She has exclusively practised in the family law sector since 2001 and is a Queensland Law Society Accredited Family Law Specialist.

Tuskeen has been recognised as a Recommended Family Lawyer in the Doyle’s Guide to the Australian Legal Profession since 2017.
