I'm the General Manager of Slater and Gordon's Victorian Motor Vehicle Accident group, as well as the Victorian Workers' Compensation practice. I'm an accredited specialist in personal injury law, I have worked solely in this area of law since 2001.

I do what I do because it makes a difference to people at what is often the most challenging and stressful time of their lives. Over my years of practice, I've seen the difference that expert advice and representation makes, not only in terms of the case outcome but also because a great lawyer can be an important source of support for their client along their journey.

One of the most rewarding parts of my job is working with our many partners in the industry, including the Transport Accident Commission, medical and allied health professionals and road trauma interest groups, to fight for law reform that protects the rights of injured Victorians. Our achievements include a successful law reform campaign to reverse changes to the law introduced in 2013 that severely impacted clients' rights and entitlements, especially clients suffering from psychiatric illnesses.
