I have worked in the area of Industrial and Employment Law since I was admitted as a lawyer. Before joining Slater and Gordon I worked as a Legal/Industrial officer at Unions NSW where I ran industrial disputes in the NSW public sector and represented workers before parliamentary inquiries. I've also worked in a commercial firm that primarily represented employers, which fueled my fire to use my skills to benefit workers and unions.
Having always had a genuine interest in people and justice, it made sense to study law to equip myself with the skills and knowledge to make a positive difference for workers. Ensuring people know their rights and entitlements is the first and most vital step towards change, particularly in the employment environment.
I joined Slater and Gordon’s Industrial and Employment practice in 2021 and continue to work closely with the union movement. I am very aware of the impact a person’s working conditions can have on every part of their life and I aim to give my clients honest and practical advice throughout their dispute. I enjoy working with my clients to understand their issue and reach a positive resolution.

Her ability to really listen and understand my position meant that she immediately gained my full confidence and provided hope during a time of great turmoil. Her professionalism and knowledge of her craft gave me reassurance and helped me remain calm through some very difficult times.Her communication is exceptional. El was highly responsive to any queries or instructions I had contacting me either by email or phone daily if necessary. She kept me updated throughout the whole process and clearly explained options and strategies for moving the case forward. El provided clear direction and great judgement with the utmost care and compassion at all times. In saying this, I was also impressed with her determination and back bone when communicating with other parties involved in the case.I highly recommend El Leverington at Slater and Gordon without reservation.
