My career in law has spanned nearly 40 years. As Special Counsel in Slater and Gordon’s personal injury compensation team, I’m driven by strong ethics and a desire to contribute positively to individuals, families and communities.
I specialise in personal injury law, which means I help people who have been injured through no fault of their own get access to the financial and medical support the need and deserve. I work hard to improve their situations and get them access to their full entitlements.
Maintaining clear communication with my clients is important to me. I ensure they know I genuinely care about their situation, supporting them through the claims process as I work to get them the best possible outcome.
I have successfully represented many catastrophically injured clients during my long career, and have also run a number of landmark cases, including:
- a motor vehicle accident claims case that led to legislative change and also resulted in a large damages sum of $3.4 million.
- a case in the Dust Diseases Tribunal, which resulted in one of the largest damages awards at the time and involved an asthma condition contracted in the course of employment.
