I am a Principal Lawyer in the Medical Law Team at Slater and Gordon Lawyers.

I have more than 25 years experience assisting injured people and their families to recover fair and reasonable compensation for injuries arising from negligent medical treatment, dental treatment, and hospital treatment.

I have significant experience in claims arising from birth injury, in representing catastrophically injured people and their families, and in personal injury claims involving complex issues of liability and damages.

I have represented families at coronial inquests in the Coroner’s Court of Western Australia, and I have pursued claims on behalf of injured people in the District Court and Supreme Court of Western Australia and in the High Court of Australia.

I am passionate about the pursuit of personal injury law and I am well known in the Western Australian legal profession for my tenacity, diligence, and attention to detail.

To progress claims expeditiously and efficiently, and to enhance client communication, I make extensive use of legal technology.

I have appeared on various radio talk-back programs and television programs explaining various aspects of the law of negligence and I am a regular presenter at legal professional development seminars and other legal training events in Western Australia.

I head up the medical law team in Western Australia and I look forward to assisting injured people and their families with personal injury claims.
