With a passion for helping those in need, I was drawn to personal injury law so I could be a voice for injured workers. I practise in Slater and Gordon’s Comcare department, where we are committed to ensuring injured employees of the Commonwealth Government and a number of Australia-wide businesses get access to fair workers’ compensation.
Injured workers often require medical support, income assistance and compensation to help get their lives back on track. As your lawyer, my goal is to ensure you get a fair and just outcome, so you can focus on recovery and rehabilitation.
I am committed, caring and accessible, working closely with you to make sure you fully understand your case and to help you achieve the best possible outcome.
I have extensive experience with cases in the Administrative Appeals Tribunal and have also worked on appeals in the Federal Court of Australia.
One of my top career achievements to date is successfully taking on a psychological injury claim that Comcare had initially rejected. Our challenge resulted in my client being fairly compensated for time off work as a result of the injury and his associated medical expenses, giving him peace of mind to focus on his recovery.

Feedback from our clients
After failing to find a legal firm in my home state with the qualification to take on my complicated AAT case, I made one last attempt to find a solicitor by contacting Slater & Gordon interstate. Gabriella accepted the case with excellent attention to detail and strategy to repair damage caused by me not knowing the comcare process and fighting the battle alone until then. My case was messy and drawn out by the time Gabriella took over. Amazingly, through the height of a glabal pandemic with most of the country working from home and locked down, my case was resolved really quickly with a positive outcome for me. Gabriella made the end of my battle easy, feedback about progress during the case was instant, all my queries were responded to promptly by Gabriella and Michelle. I have no doubt I wouldn't have won this battle if I hadn't found this team to finish it for me. I'm so greatfull for their hard work.
After having a workplace injury in 2019 I found myself in a situation where I needed to engage the services of a lawyer specializing in workplace injuries. Gabriella from Slater and Gordon Sydney Branch was recommended to me by a work colleague. After speaking to Gabriella she very much put me at ease and I decided to proceed with the claim . Gabriella explained everything very clearly in a way that was easily understood. All the way through the processes Gabriella has always kept me informed either by phone or emails. Gabriella was always available and happy to address any questions and concerns I had which made the whole process less stressful. Along with the Barrister, Gabriella and her assistant Michelle, it all made for a very pleasing result. My only regret was that I did not get to meet Gabriella and Michelle to thank them for an excellent outcome and would not hesitate to recommend Gabriella to anyone who needs help in a workplace injury claim. With kind regards Trevor
Gabriella handled my injury claim from start to end and gained a successful outcome. She always kept me up to date with every step of the way throughout my claim. She is very professional and extremely knowledgeable of the law and was a an absolute pleasure dealing with her. I trusted her right from the beginning and I highly recommend her! Gabriella, you have delivered me a desired outcome and have provided me with peace and mind to not only myself but to my family so thank you! Nicholas
