Workers Compensation, Senior Associate

03 5215 6549
Geelong, Victoria
English

Simone specialises in personal injury claims with more than a decade experience practising law. She is a highly driven and organised person who excels at being able to explain to clients highly complex issues and help them understand what it means for them.

“Achieving excellent results for clients is always rewarding but I find it is the little things – like being able to set a client’s mind at ease about a letter they received from an insurer – which count the most.” 

Having worked as a solicitor with Transport Accident Commission has given Simone a unique insight into insurance law policies and processes. This means she is very well placed to advise clients of their rights and entitlements.

“We often see people at their worst; injured, out of work and out of money.  Being able to assure client that I am just a phone call away gives me a sense of purpose and achievement.”
