Farewell Annabel

Burke Headshots - Edited


It is with immense sadness that we inform you of the unexpected and tragic death of Annabel Viner, special counsel at Burke & Associates Lawyers.


Annabel practised as an environment and planning lawyer for over 25 years.


She grew up in Perth and studied both there and in Darwin until Annabel moved to Melbourne in 2000.


Annabel joined the Burke & Associates team in October 2019 and was widely admired by her colleagues as a passionate planning lawyer who was bright and energetic in everything she did. She was a highly valued member of our team.  


She will be missed by her colleagues, friends and associates in the industry. 


We send our sincere condolences to her family, particularly her parents Ngaire and the Hon Ian Viner AO. QC, and her daughters, Mia and Bridget.



Kristy Muhlhan, Meghan Warren & Rosy Roberts together with the team at Burke & Associates Lawyers
