Medical Law, Practice Group Leader

Sydney, New South Wales

According to Ms Williams, "the application of law to medical liability requires me to have both sensitivity and extensive knowledge of the legal process and its requirements. I realise this can be a distressing process and it is important that the client understands the essence of the process, the opportunity and the risks - then my clients can make informed decisions."

“Medical liability is a very complex area of law and I always am pleased when the client is completely satisfied with the advice they have received, especially at the settlement of the matter.”
