I first started at Slater and Gordon in 2015 as a paralegal on the Manus Island Class Action during my final two years at university. For a long time, I have been passionate about the right of every person to access justice. With its No Win No Fee model, Slater and Gordon was my perfect fit.
I got a graduate role in asbestos litigation at Slater and Gordon in 2016 before moving into medical law in 2017. Both roles developed my understanding of complex medical concepts, which I use to help people injured through medical negligence.
In May 2018 I was honoured to be a finalist in the Rising Star Award from the Law Institute of Victoria.
One of my proudest achievements was being part of a team that won a great outcome for a family who’d lost their mother due to a failed breast cancer diagnosis.
At Slater and Gordon I’ve been fortunate to work in a number of different areas in the firm, so I give back wherever possible. In 2017-18 I have been co-running the National Disability Insurance Scheme practice pro bono, including running appeals through the Administrative Appeals Tribunal.
