I’m the solicitor for Slater and Gordon’s Workers’ Compensation Hub for the Illawarra and South Coast region. I was drawn to a career in law because I have a genuine interest in helping people get through a difficult time following a work injury.
I have expertise in personal injury law and have worked across many areas, including:
• workers’ compensation
• public liability
• motor vehicle accident
• medical negligence
It’s natural to feel daunted and overwhelmed as you navigate the legal process after suffering an injury, but you can feel comfortable talking to me about your concerns. Clear and open communication is key, so I give you a step-by-step explanation of the workers’ compensation process. I don’t give you unrealistic expectations and I work with you to achieve the best possible outcome.
I do what’s best for you, however long it takes. In two major catastrophic motor vehicle accident claims, I held the files for eight to 10 years until my clients had finished school so that I could fully assess how they would manage in the workforce after leaving the protected school environment. One of these claims settled for $2.3 million—an outstanding result from my team. The client has stayed in touch with me and sends me a Christmas card every year.
