Slater and Gordon has promoted lawyer Jessica Mackenzie to Principal Lawyer - just four years after starting at the law firm.
Ms Mackenzie joined the Sydney team in 2013, promptly being promoted to Associate in 2014 - the same year she became a Law Society of NSW Accredited Specialist. She was then promoted to Senior Associate in 2015.
Ms Mackenzie said she was inspired to help her clients achieve the best possible result while they and their families dealt with what was a difficult and heartbreaking period in their lives.
“I never put any time pressure on a client – I allow hours when I first meet with them, to listen to their stories,” Ms Mackenzie said.
She also paid tribute to the firm for allowing her to pursue cases that she believed in.
“It’s great knowing the firm believes in me, they’ve put a lot of faith in me,” Ms Mackenzie said.
Slater and Gordon’s Joanne Wade said Ms Mackenzie’s commitment to her clients and their cases was second to none.
“Her client’s stories and bravery motivates her to help them achieve justice,” Ms Wade said.
“Her passion and commitment to them is proved in the way she handles each case and the results she achieves.”
