After seven years practising law across a broad range of areas, I joined Slater and Gordon in 2016 to focus on WorkCover cases. I’m committed to getting my clients the best possible outcome in the shortest time, so they can focus on treatment, recovery and wellbeing.
You can trust that, as your lawyer, I will communicate clearly and sensitively with you and keep you updated on every step of your case. I fight hard to stand up to insurance companies so that my clients receive all of their WorkCover entitlements.
I’m also experienced in helping people with Transport Accident Commission (TAC) claims and victims of crime claims. As an active Country Fire Authority (CFA) volunteer (for 15 years and counting), I also have a special interest in CFA compensation claims.
I’m based in Slater and Gordon’s Ballarat office and have strong family connections to the local community. Helping my friends and neighbours access tailored legal advice during difficult times is incredibly important to me and I take pride in handling every case with skill, care and commitment.
