Cathy Collins

Cathy from the Slater and Gordon Dubbo office is recognised by her colleagues for her outstanding record as a conveyancing paralegal and most of all for her collaboration with others.

This seems all the more remarkable considering she is the only staff member at the firm in Dubbo and the surrounding areas who practises conveyancing.

Cathy has deep roots in the area. She grew up in the nearby town of Nyngan before relocating to Dubbo where she has lived for the past 20 years. Three years ago she joined Slater and Gordon with the merger of Adams Leyland, and in total she has worked in conveyancing for the past six years.

The property market in Dubbo and surrounding areas has been strong, says Cathy. The opening of mines in the area has bought new workers and families as well as investors who are looking to buy residential properties and build large subdivision complexes.

At any chance she gets, Cathy enjoys promoting the firm’s conveyancing service to the local community as well as fellow colleagues at the firm. She is always on the phone to staff in the surrounding Slater and Gordon offices such as Tamworth and Broken Hill. She is not one to ever let distance be an obstacle.

James Hardie and the fight for future asbestos victims

L-R in the above image: Greg Combet (former ACTU Secretary), Bernie Banton, Ken Fowlie For many decades, the deadly legacy of asbestos dust has been claiming innocent victims in Australia. From the early days of asbestos mining at Wittenoom to the more recent saga of building-product manufacturer James Hardie, the legal ramifications continue, as does the suffering. Since the 1980s, Slater and Gordon has played a lead role in the battle for compensation on behalf of many of the nation’s asbestos victims. Having won landmark cases on behalf of Wittenoom workers, Slater and Gordon again took up the asbestos compensation fight in the early 2000s. In 2001, finally acknowledging its role in...

Christian Brothers - a betrayal of trust

In 1987, a horror story of institutionalised child abuse was revealed to the Australian public. Former residents of Christian Brothers boys’ homes had bravely broken their silence, recounting to the media all manner of hellish abuse in the West Australian Catholic institutions. By 1993 Bruce Blythe, a former school principal, publisher and advocate for survivors of abuse at the hands of Christian Brothers, had heard enough. He contacted Slater and Gordon. Bruce knew of Slater and Gordon’s success in the Wittenoom asbestos cases. Would they dare take on the mighty Catholic Church? Hell, yes. Slater and Gordon immediately sent a team to Perth to take statements from potential plaintiffs...
