I pursued a career in law to equip myself with the skills and understandings required to affect positive social change. Empowering the average person to access their legal entitlements is essential to ensuring fairness in our community. I am passionate about employment and industrial law because practising in this area allows me to help these people and assist the union movement in representing their rights.
Prior to working at Slater and Gordon I worked at the Young Workers Centre, an employment community Legal Centre where I gained valuable experience in 'wage theft' matters.
I am also an experienced legal policy adviser having worked with government on occupational health and safety and industrial relations reform including Workplace Manslaughter and Wage Theft.
During my time at Slater and Gordon I have primarily been involved in the Industrial and Employment practice, assisting individuals with workplace investigations, unfair dismissals and the negotiation of exit packages. I have also used my previous experience as a Teacher to more effectively assist Teachers with any issues they may have with their school, the Department of Education and/or the Victorian Institute of Teaching.
When working with clients to resolve their issues, I take a careful approach and take the time to develop a complete understanding of the issue. I am conscious of resolving matters in a cost effective manner, and enjoy the benefit of working alongside a team of highly experienced litigators.
