In my role as an associate with Slater and Gordon’s Newcastle branch, I’m committed to putting my clients first and getting them the best possible results from their personal injury claim. I draw on my strong experience in workers’ compensation, motor vehicle accidents and public liability claims to ensure my clients get access to justice.

I have expertise in public liability claims across a diverse range of circumstances, from slips and falls in supermarkets, to council cases, to complex cases involving multiple defendants and unusual circumstances. This means that whatever your legal challenge, I give you reliable and practical advice to help you access fair compensation and get your life back on track.

I come from a background in the public service, having worked for the Commonwealth taxation and education departments and also running a TAB agency before turning to the law. This mixed background allows me to provide frank advice to my clients in an easy-to-understand way.

As your lawyer, I provide objective, practical advice about your case, but I’m also compassionate to people suffering from injuries through no fault of their own and ensure I support you throughout the entire claims process
