As a Principal Lawyer at Slater and Gordon, I’m dedicated to giving injured people the best possible advice for a successful transport accident claim.
I manage the Ballarat office and the Motor Vehicle Accident department in both the Ballarat and Bendigo offices. I live in Ballarat, the town in which I was born and bred and love, and I travel weekly to fortnightly to see clients at the Bendigo office.
I’m an accredited specialist in personal injury law and have handled a wide range of personal injury claims since 2007. I really love coming to work each day to help others, especially people going through tough times. It is my job—and a great source of personal satisfaction—to maximise my client's compensation entitlements and to make a difference for the better to their lives.
I pride myself on my compassion and ability to connect with people and explain the law in plain English. My priority is to keep you up to date and fully informed about your rights and obligations, so you feel supported throughout your claim.
Sue was shortlisted as a finalist in the Regional Lawyer of the Year category for the 15th Victorian Legal Awards.

Feedback from our clients
My experience with Slater and Gordon has been great, very helpful and very knowledgeable about the whole process. I would not hesitate to refer anyone to use their services. Again thank you very much.
Sue Emery along with her team were a pleasure to deal with. Always sympathetic and understanding. Always in touch with us with updates and progress I would without hesitation use them again and highly recommend Sue and her team at Ballarat Slater and Gordon 👍
I was very apprehensive about seeing a solicitor after my accident. A friend suggested I see Sue Emery at Slater and Gordon. Sue and her entire team have been absolutely amazing to deal with from the initial interview right through to my settlement. I can not express how grateful I am for all of her efforts throughout this journey. If you need assistance after an accident look no further than Sue.
Slater Gordon Ballarat (especially Sue & Courtney, my lawyer) are very courteous, helpful and most importantly superb efficient. I got the maximum compensation. I am very much happy to work with them. I wish all the best to Slater Gordon Ballarat. moreover, they also help all other matters outside the compensation.
