I am a hard-working Litigation Lawyer at Slater and Gordon with more than 20 years’ experience in compensation law both in the UK and Australia. I provide informed legal advice to clients Queensland wide from our locations in Brisbane, Sunshine Coast, Gold Coast, Townsville, Toowoomba & Darwin
From an early age I had a strong sense of right and wrong. Now I am invested in standing up for the rights of everyday people who are facing challenging circumstances through no fault of their own. Every day I feel motivated by the unique stories of my clients and I work diligently to help them achieve a fair and just outcome.
I began my legal career as a personal injury claims manager in the UK in 1999 and progressed to leading a team of claimant lawyers and paralegals for a large compensation law firm. During this time, I worked in both Plaintiff and Defendant law firms. This experience gave me a unique insight to the key legal issues arising in litigation law and the skills to tackle and solve complex legal problems.
After moving to Australia to join my wife, I studied and graduated from Bond University with a Graduate Diploma of Legal Practice, and a Bachelor of Laws from CQU. I found I could add more value assisting people with complex litigation legal cases understand their legal rights. Assisting people who have little knowledge of the law or limited resources available to them due to their circumstances, is my passion.
Where possible, my preference is to meet with my clients in person wherever they are in Queensland or the Northern Territory. When I meet with you, I will seek to gain a comprehensive understanding of your circumstances. I will listen to your story and take the time to explore all avenues of your case, helping you gain more understanding of sometimes complex legal processes, so you can make an informed decision about your options. I seek to give you the most effective path to the outcome you desire, so you can care for yourself and your loved ones during a challenging time.
When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my family and appreciating the Queensland lifestyle including fishing, day trips, bushwalking, golf and helping at our local football club.
