A few words from our founders...
“Law Partners represents so much more than just a law firm. It’s a place where people in need of assistance, guidance and representation can come and genuinely be looked after. We work hard to continually improve the already excellent service we provide to our clients – it’s the foundation of our practice and something we’re truly proud of.”
“I’m often asked which aspect of my role is the most satisfying and the answer is simple. There’s no more satisfying feeling than achieving an outstanding result for a client and helping them get life back on track. That’s why we’re here, and we work tirelessly to make sure our clients receive nothing less than excellent results in their cases.”
Meet our team of specialists.
After I completed my accounting degree at the University of New South Wales, I spent years learning the trade and honing my skills working at one of the big four accounting firms. My drive for continuous improvement and development quickly saw me become a chartered accountant. In the ensuing years I assisted many Australian businesses to achieve significant levels of growth, but it was my desire to make a real difference and help people on a more personal level that led me to join the Law Partners team.
As Managing Director, I’m responsible for the strategic and operational objectives of Law Partners.
I’m passionate about making sure Law Partners continues to stay ahead of the evolving legal industry and provide an unsurpassed client service experience that’s both accessible and affordable. What makes me so proud of the Law Partners team is that regardless of what we’re doing each day there’s always the same motive and desire – to work hard to achieve great outcomes for our clients.
After obtaining a double degree in Law and Commerce from Macquarie University, I was admitted as a solicitor of the Supreme Court in 2002 and subsequently of the High Court of Australia. I’m also a member of the Law Society.
Over the years I’ve gained a wealth of claims experience working for legal practices and also for insurance companies. I strongly believe that my experience working for insurers has given me a unique industry insight, that allows me to consistently negotiate maximum claim payouts for my clients.
I joined Law Partners as a claims solicitor in 2008 and I consider myself fortunate to be part of a team who passionately believe in delivering quality client service and who will genuinely do whatever it takes to ensure client expectations are constantly exceeded.
While my role can be challenging with hard work always required to produce the best outcomes for my clients, I enjoy going the extra mile. One of the most rewarding aspects of my role as a solicitor at Law Partners is the regular satisfaction that comes from fighting for the rights of my clients and recovering their claim entitlements. Knowing that I’ve given 100% of my effort to all of my clients and achieving great results for them is an extremely satisfying experience.
As a Principal of the firm, I’m also responsible for managing a team of dedicated claim lawyers, paralegals and support staff, whilst also managing my own portfolio of claims.
Accredited Specialist in Personal Injury Law
I’m a solicitor admitted in the Supreme Court and the High Court of Australia with a double degree in Law and Economics. I’m a member of the Law Society and I’m an Accredited Specialist in Personal Injury Law.
I joined Law Partners in 2004 and I’m a Principal of the firm. I supervise a team of lawyers who work closely with me on medium to large claims.
My day starts early due to the demands of my practice. My daily calendar is almost always filled with new client meetings, settlement conferences and court appearances. I also spend a lot of time every day speaking to my clients – I make myself as accessible as I can to answer questions or enquiries about my clients’ cases.
I’m very proud to be part of a firm with a fantastic reputation – both as an exceptional legal practice and also as a firm that supports volunteering in the community and providing free assistance to people in need of legal advice and direction.
My role has many interesting facets. I most enjoy engaging in strategic dialogue with my clients on how best to pursue and maximise the value of their claims. I also enjoy supervising a team of experienced lawyers with diverse backgrounds who excel in delivering legal services to our clients.
I take great pride in running my cases efficiently and achieving outstanding results for my clients.
With around fifteen years of legal and business experience across different firms and industries, and many thousands of matters across my desk, there’s hardly something I haven’t seen before – just like there would hardly be a type of personal injury claim that Law Partners haven’t successfully dealt with before.
My working relationship with Law Partners spans almost an entire decade, filled with countless instances of us all working together towards a common goal – achieving great outcomes for our clients. Having always been very close to the heartbeat of the firm, I’m intimately familiar with ways in which I can support the firm in its continued mission of providing only the best service and outcomes to its clients. Whilst the work and tasks I do are varied, they all have the same purpose – to allow my colleagues at the firm to focus on what they do best, which is to help their clients in difficult times of their lives and achieve best possible outcomes in their compensation claims.
Whilst being Australia’s largest specialist personal injury firm and delivering on its promise of unsurpassed client service and results to its clients are not easy tasks, this is where all the experience gained over the years is pulled together, both individually and collectively, enabling Law Partners to remain a leader in the ever complex arena that is compensation law.
I have a considerable amount of experience in other personal injury firms running significant and complicated matters in the District Court and the Supreme Court. It’s my knowledge and experience that allows me to understand our clients’ needs and concerns and identify the best possible solutions for them. I recognise that no one case is the same as the next case and it’s my ability to identify each client’s particular needs that makes me successful.
I joined Law Partners as a Solicitor and I consider myself extremely lucky to be part of a firm that’s professional and committed, like me, to achieving the best possible outcomes for our clients.
I enjoy the problem solving aspects of my work and I’ll always put in that extra mile to obtain the maximum result for each of our clients. My experience allows me to do this in the most effective way, which translates to as quick as possible resolution of our clients’ claims.
My day-to-day activities include frequent contact with my clients, liaising with various medical and other professionals and communicating with insurance companies, all aimed at preparing, maximising and resolving our clients’ compensation claims with no delay.
My journey in personal injury law began in 2016, where I worked as a legal assistant at a compensation firm before making the move to Law Partners in 2018. I’m currently in my fourth year studying a Bachelor of Arts/Laws majoring in political science at the University of New England.
As a paralegal at Law Partners, I love the fact that every time I walk through the doors in the morning, I know no two days will ever be the same. With client care at the forefront of everything we do, I’m often communicating with clients, liaising with legal and medical professionals, tracking down and compiling necessary documents and anything else that will help progress the claim.
It fills me with confidence knowing I have the support of my colleagues on a daily basis and work in a unified and motivated environment, where the emphasis and dedication to client service is second to none. It’s truly inspiring.
When I’m not at work or studying, my ideal day involves spending time with family and friends and taking part in a competitive game of backyard cricket. I love the outdoors and staying active, but I also love to wind down by getting stuck into an engaging TV series.
I completed a Bachelor of Laws combined with a Bachelor of Arts, majoring in Psychology at Western Sydney University in 2018. I also completed a Graduate Diploma in Legal Practice at the College of Law in 2019 before being admitted as a solicitor in the Supreme Court of New South Wales.
I have always had a passion for understanding and assisting those who are disadvantaged in our community and my job allows me to do that and so much more. It’s also very refreshing to work at firm with like-minded professionals that share this passion for client care.
When I’m not working, I love nothing more than exploring new places and keeping fit.
I completed a Bachelor of Law / Business and Commerce majoring in Human Resources at Western Sydney University and was admitted as a solicitor in 2019. I’ve been working in personal injury law since 2015 and I was thrilled to be accepted to join Law Partners in 2017.
My experience has taught me the value of maintaining excellent relationships with our clients and keeping them informed at all stages of their claim. Most of our clients come to us during the most uncertain and unsettling period of their lives and ensuring transparency with great client care is the best recipe for achieving the optimal outcome.
It’s so great to work at a firm that values client care above all else.
I completed a Bachelor of Arts majoring in English and History along with a Bachelor of Laws from Macquarie University. I was admitted as a solicitor in the Supreme Court of NSW in 2013 and then admitted in the High Court of Australia.
I’ve been working in personal injury law since 2012 and I’ve acted for clients from all different cultural backgrounds with a vast range of injuries. As an experienced personal injury law professional, I understand the importance of establishing a clear and open line of communication with clients throughout the life of their claim. Ensuring the client is informed and updated in a manner that is easy to comprehend, is essential to helping them realise their full compensation potential.
When I’m not working, you would probably find me at the beach spending time with my Golden Retriever, Shadow or hanging out with friends and family.
I’m currently studying a double degree, Bachelor of Laws and Arts (Majoring in Social Justice) at Macquarie University.
There’s so many rewarding aspects to this role, but the satisfaction that comes with delivering the news that we’ve succeeded in attaining the client all the compensation they’re entitled to is unmatched. It is truly a special feeling helping someone in need and making a difference.
When I’m not working, I love going to the beach and socialising with friends and family.
I’m very proud to be the first point of contact for our clients and it gives me great satisfaction to know that, once I’ve directed our clients’ enquiries to our team, they will be treated with the utmost respect, care and professionalism that our firm is renowned for.
Despite being a large firm, at Law Partners we’re a tightly knit group working closely together to help our clients, and achieve the best possible outcomes in their cases.
In my position, I’m often the first person to hear countless positive comments and feedback from our many happy clients, and that makes my career even more rewarding.
I completed a Certificate of Medical Terminology and Forensic Accident Investigation at Sydney University in 2009 and 2010 respectively.
I’ve worked in personal injury law, in multiple roles and areas, for over two decades. And my experience has taught me that no two clients are ever the same, which is why it’s essential to take the time to get to know each and every client in order to deliver the best possible outcome.
There are so many satisfying aspects to my role, but none more so than delivering a result that enables the client to financially move on from the injury.
I would definitely consider myself an outgoing person and when I’m not working, I love spending time with family and friends camping and attending V8 Supercars events.
I hold a Bachelor of Laws from the University of Sydney and was admitted as solicitor in 1987. I spent the early part of my career working as a solicitor for one of the major insurers, specialising in catastrophic claims. This experience gave me a very relevant insight into the tactics of insurers, which helps me to be proactive in resolving my clients’ claims in an efficient manner, and obtaining maximum compensation for them. I always maintain an open line of communication with my clients, keeping them regularly informed of the progress of their claims and discussing the compensation available to them and how we are able to maximise their claims. Clients are always my top priority, and it’s my job to inform them of the options available to them – whether it be an out of court settlement or going to a court hearing. I have extensive experience in running complicated matters in court and, where appropriate, will not hesitate to fight hard with an insurer to get the best result for my client. I’m also very well aware that a court hearing is not a path all clients wish to take and I will exhaust all settlement opportunities to ensure that I obtain the maximum compensation available for them.
Accredited Specialist in Personal Injury Law
I was admitted as a solicitor in 1996 and I’m a member of the Law Society and an Accredited Specialist in Personal Injury Law. Following my admission as a solicitor, I built experience and fine-tuned my legal skills in a smaller firm before my desire to help an even greater number of people in need of legal assistance led me to join Law Partners – a firm where we pride ourselves on doing whatever it takes for our clients.
Throughout my career I’ve always enjoyed helping people overcome obstacles in their lives and obtaining the best possible outcomes for my clients, and that’s something that still gives me the greatest sense of achievement and satisfaction.
Some claims are complex and my role requires me to carefully listen to my clients and patiently and completely explore all existing and potential issues before I can proceed with preparing my clients’ claims and pursuing the best possible outcomes for them. Being a people person and enjoying interactions with other people, I find these initial steps in claim preparation process not only very enjoyable, but also a great opportunity to establish a good and solid relationship with all my clients, which often helps to maximise the benefits to the clients and minimise the time required to successfully resolve my clients’ claims.
I pride myself on being an extremely thorough person and when working on my clients’ claims I give each matter my full and undivided attention and leave no stone unturned to ensure that every claim is prepared to the highest possible standard and that each and every client gets the best outcome possible, both financially and from a client service perspective. This not only results in happy and satisfied clients, but also makes my role and career as a whole highly rewarding.
Claims Support Manager
I joined Law Partners as part of the Claims Support Team, bringing over 15 years’ experience within the legal industry, across a number of different areas of law from Corporate to Disputes Resolution.
Having worked with large to boutique firms in different capacities such as Manager, Team Leader and Co-ordinator, I bring a unique range of skills, diversity and creativity.
I pride myself in ensuring a positive and successful partnership for both clients and Law Partners, understanding everyone is unique and not every box fits every client. I understand the importance of having the right people, right skills, right attitude and right personality to meet each client’s needs.
My experience ranges from customer care, project management, management, paralegal, human resources, networking and collaborating with all different stakeholders to achieve goals. My style is personable, honest and consultative. I’m passionate about diversity and believe that through driving positive change in the organisation, we can achieve a high performance workplace meeting goals and expectations
I completed a Bachelor of Business & Commerce majoring in Management at Western Sydney University in 2017 along with a Bachelor of Laws also at Western Sydney University. I was admitted as a solicitor in 2019.
Coming into work and being able to make a positive impact on the lives of clients who are going through a tough time is incredibly satisfying, and is my primary motivation for doing what I do. I also love the fact that at Law Partners I’m surrounded by colleagues who share my passion for the law and helping clients every step of the way to ultimately achieve the best possible outcome.
When I’m not working I love to throw on a jersey and play football alongside my good mates or catch a live game of footy.
Accredited Specialist in Personal Injury Law
I was admitted as a solicitor in 1986. I worked for a large insurer running Supreme Court claims and left that role to concentrate on acting on behalf of claimants. I‘ve worked at senior associate and partner level and, for a large part of my career, I was a sole practitioner running my own practice.
I’m an Accredited Specialist in Personal Injury law and I’m a member of the Australian Lawyers Alliance and the Law Society. My daily responsibilities can range from working with my lawyers to ensure their clients are given constant priority to participating in settlement conferences with insurance companies and achieving outstanding results for our clients.
What I enjoy most about my role is achieving results for our clients that well and truly exceed their expectations. There’s no better feeling than achieving outstanding results for deserving clients whose lives have been significantly affected by an injury. I’m fortunate that my team is comprised of dedicated and very experienced solicitors, paralegals and support staff all with a single minded focus – to deliver personalised, quality client service and achieve maximum possible payouts for our clients.
My work is both individual and team oriented. I individually manage many of the firm’s large claims and I work with my team to ensure all of the clients in their portfolio are receiving the quality legal representation they deserve and expect from our firm.
Lillian Crowther Gibson
I completed a Bachelor of Communications (majoring in Creative Writing) and a Bachelor of Law with Honours at the University of Technology Sydney in 2018. I was also very honoured to be the 2019 recipient of the Law Partners Personal Injury Award at the UTS Law Awards for the top performing student in Medicine and Law.
Laws as it pertains to personal injury, exist to protect people who suffer as a result of negligence or an unfortunate circumstance and as legal professionals it’s our job to ensure our clients receive everything they’re entitled to.
When I’m not working, I love nothing more than going out hiking, swimming and travelling to new and exciting places.
I’ve worked as a legal professional for over two decades now, working in various roles including legal secretary, workflow manager and paralegal. My extensive experience has taught me that no matter how big or small a case may be, the standard of client care should never waiver and always be at a consistently high level.
For a client, the compensation process can be complex and take a toll not only on their physical health but their mental health as well. So a big part of my job is to ease the burden by keeping the client informed throughout the claim process and explain the situation in a way that’s clear and easy to understand.
Outside the office, I consider myself a true lover of the outdoors. I enjoy camping and fishing and spending time with friends.
Yvette Dal Mas
Human Resources Manager
I began my human resources career over 10 years ago, following studies at the Australian College of Applied Psychology, and have since worked predominantly within the professional services industry, including in firms counting hundreds of staff members. During my career I’ve had many opportunities to proactively and constructively address and solve countless issues and situations. I’ve gained substantial HR experience, with a particular focus on coaching and mentoring managers and team leaders to ensure that their team members know what’s expected of them and deliver to those expectations.
My experience and qualifications not only enable me to assist members of our team here at Law Partners when a need arises, but also ensure that I understand the issues faced by many of our clients. I take great pride in assisting my colleagues at Law Partners to address those issues in ways that are second to none.
My role at Law Partners is very hands-on and includes, amongst other things, selecting and recruiting the very best people for our firm, ensuring continuous learning and development and maintaining high levels of employee engagement and performance leadership.
The ultimate goal behind everything I do is to ensure that my colleagues at Law Partners are supported in what they do and able to continue to deliver great outcomes for our clients. I work with all members of the Law Partners team at all levels of the firm, and I particularly enjoy seeing the common purpose of assisting our clients shining through all of our efforts. It’s this deeply shared vision and drive to go beyond ordinary for our clients that gives me the greatest satisfaction in my role.
I’ve always had a strong interest in personal injury law and providing a meaningful service to the community. I’ve worked in the legal profession since 2014 and was thrilled when the opportunity arose to join Law Partners in 2017. My education and past professional experience have provided me with a fantastic understanding of all the relevant processes in personal injury law.
My role involves liaising with clients directly, supporting our senior solicitors, briefing barristers on a daily basis, drafting and filing court documents and applications for claims. It’s this broad contribution to the firm that ensures no two days at Law Partners are the same. It’s so satisfying to be an integral part of a team from the opening of a file to the successful resolution of a case.
I’m studying for a Bachelor of Laws at the University of Notre Dame, and since 2014 I’ve been building my experience as a paralegal working on compensation claim cases. In 2017 I was thrilled to join Law Partners, to continue my career with Australia’s largest specialist personal injury firm.
In my role as a paralegal I work closely with the solicitors from the commencement of claims through until settlement or judgment. The key to getting the best possible result for our clients is thorough and meticulous preparation of their cases, so we leave no stone unturned to make sure we prepare well. It’s also important that we keep our clients well informed about their cases and their options, so that they understand where they stand at every stage of their claims.
I pride myself on my research and writing skills, and on being well organised and efficient. I also communicate with our clients frequently and in plain language, and do everything I can to make the claim process hassle free for them.
I’m currently studying a Bachelor of Laws and Bachelor of Arts at Sydney.
The overarching reason I decided to pursue a career in law is because I’m passionate about helping people who have been dealt some bad luck in life. And working at a client-first firm like Law Partners certainly gives me the opportunity to make a positive difference each and every day.
When I’m not working I love to get outdoors and get active – playing netball or going swimming with friends.
I’ve worked in the legal industry for the last 25 years and was thrilled to be offered a paralegal position at Law Partners. Over the last 25 years I’ve gained experience working across most areas of personal injury law including workers compensation, public liability, CTP and TPD. I’m really passionate about personal injury law and I get great satisfaction from achieving the best possible outcome for our clients.
A typical day for me involves liaising with clients, dealing with superannuation funds, drafting correspondence, preparing lodgement of TPD claims and scheduling medical appointments. I love that no two days are the same and that our work has a direct impact on the lives of our clients.
It’s paramount in my role that as well as supporting my team, I support our clients through their claims. Generally our clients come to us at a really difficult time in their lives. They’re just everyday Australians in difficult situations and it’s really important they understand what they’re entitled to.
I completed a Bachelor of Laws at the University of Notre Dame in 2018 before attaining a Graduate Diploma in Legal Practice at the College of Law. I was subsequently admitted as a solicitor in the Supreme Court of New South Wales in 2019.
Having worked in personal injury law in a number of areas since 2017, my experience has taught me the value of client care and how important it is to take the time to get to know your client, in order to achieve the best possible outcome. That’s also why I love working at Law Partners – each and every staff member understands this and it’s so great to be surrounded by like-minded professionals.
When I’m not working, I enjoy being active by going to the gym regularly and playing Oztag with friends
Bashir El Kheir
I’m currently studying a double degree Bachelor of Business (Finance) / Bachelor of Laws at the University of Technology Sydney. I have worked in personal injury law since 2016 and have been involved in matters across a number of practice areas including CTP, public liability and workers compensation.
In my experience, you can never underestimate just how physically and emotionally taxing an injury can be on an individual and their family – which is why it’s so important to take the time to truly get to know each and every client in order to really understand how the injury has impacted them. And no firm is more client-focused than Law Partners. Each and every staff member is dedicated to ensuring the client always comes first and I’m so proud to be part of this culture.
When I’m not working, I’m definitely keeping active whether it’s in the gym or playing football or boxing. I also love a good book, in particular thriller fiction or non-fiction history.
I have a Bachelor of Arts/Bachelor of Law from the University of Western Sydney and was admitted as a solicitor of the Supreme Court of NSW in 2013. Since then I have been dedicated to assisting people to get maximum compensation for their personal injury claims.
In my experience, the way to achieve the best results for our clients is to build trust and good rapport with them. In order to do that, I always carefully listen to our clients, meet and speak with them frequently and keep them up to date with what’s happening with their claims. These trusting relationships on one hand allow our clients to focus on getting better and, on the other hand, allow me to focus on fighting for their rights and entitlements, resulting in great outcomes for our clients.
My day-to-day activities are based around understanding our clients’ circumstances and needs, ensuring that they understand their rights and entitlements and building strong cases for their claims.
I pride myself on my ongoing commitment and dedication to my clients’ cases and ensuring they receive the maximum compensation they’re entitled to.
I enjoy working for Law Partners and interacting with people on a daily basis. I’m also a Justice of the Peace (JP) and part of my role for Law partners is to certify documents and witness statutory declarations as Law Partners kindly offers free JP services to clients and the general public. Throughout my career as a receptionist, I’ve found that an integral part of my role is to listen to and empathise with clients. Working as a receptionist for Law Partners allows me to build rapport with clients and reassure them they have called the right place. I look forward to meeting with you.
I’ve worked in the legal industry since 1993 and joined Law Partners in June 2010. After completing business studies at St Patrick’s Business College, I started my career as a legal secretary, then became a precedent and risk administrator and qualified workplace trainer.
As the ISO:9001 coordinator I take great pride in upholding the quality of our internal processes and ensuring that our clients receive unbridled levels of customer service. Personal injury is an area of law that is constantly changing and evolving. My role is to ensure that our systems and processes reflect the best industry practices while maintaining a high level of service.
I started working in the legal industry in 2006, after completing a Diploma of Business, and I completed my Associate Degree in Law (Paralegal Studies) in 2011.
I’m committed to building trusting relationships with our clients, assisting them as much as possible during the claim process and taking the hassle out of dealing with insurance companies. I find it rewarding to help clients to get access to much needed treatment, and assistance around the home when they find themselves in difficultly because of their injuries.
My role involves obtaining and reviewing evidence to support our clients’ claims, conducting research to reinforce claims, preparing complex legal documents and dealing with insurance companies and medical and legal professionals. I also constantly liaise with our clients about their needs and the status of their claims, and provide them with information and explanations about the claims process, which otherwise may seem complex and overwhelming during such stressful times.
I enjoy working in the supportive and professional environment that Law Partners has. Our team is committed to delivering excellent service and, by working as one, achieving the best possible outcomes for our clients.
I’m currently studying a Diploma of Law at Sydney University and have worked in personal injury law since 2018.
The best aspect of my job is dealing directly with the clients and getting a true understanding of what they’re going through and how the injury has affected their quality of life. It’s this level of communication and interaction that enables us to appreciate the client’s journey and current situation, which puts us in the best position to help them get things back on track.
When I’m not working I enjoy staying fit active, so you’ll often find me at the gym or spending time with friends.
I completed my Bachelor of Arts majoring in Politics and Sociology at Macquarie University – graduating with honours in 2000 before earning my Diploma in Law through Legal Profession Admission Board in 2007. I was admitted to the Supreme Court of NSW in 2009 and admitted as an Accredited Specialist in personal injury law in 2014.
My experience in personal injury compensation, which spans the best part of two decades, has taught me that paying attention to every detail of a claim and ensuring no stone is left unturned in the pursuit of evidence, is integral to achieving the best possible outcome. This thorough approach is shared by the entire staff here at Law Partners, which is a big reason why the firm consistently achieves great results for clients.
When I’m not working you’ll probably find me out running as part of my training routine or spending time with my family.
I’ve completed a Bachelor of Criminology/Bachelor of Laws in 2018 at the University of New England and a Graduate Diploma of Legal Practice through the College of Law in 2019. I was admitted as a solicitor in 2020 and I’ve worked as a legal professional since 2000 in a variety of roles across a number of different areas of law.
In my role it’s important for me to build long lasting relationships with my clients and provide constant support to them as they navigate a challenging time. It’s our shared commitment to the belief that we can make a difference to clients when they need it most that makes me proud to work at Law Partners.
When I’m not working, I love to bake and get stuck into a good book.
My years of experience in managing life insurance / superannuation insurance claims has taught me about the true value of client service. Our clients didn’t choose to be in this situation and it’s my responsibility to not only help them realise their full entitlements but also ensure they feel completely comfortable and informed throughout the claims process.
When I’m not working I love to spend most of my time with my family. I would consider us a foodie family and whenever I get the chance I love to cook different types of food and take my children out to restaurants to try new cuisines.
I completed a Bachelor of Laws at the University of Western Sydney before earning my Graduate Diploma in Legal Practice in 2018. I was admitted as a lawyer of the Supreme Court in 2019 and have accumulated a wealth of experience across many facets of personal injury law.
As a personal injury law specialist, I can’t stress enough the importance of establishing a solid line of communication with the client throughout the claims process. That is why I love working at Law Partners – the client is always at the centre of every decision to ensure full transparency on the way to achieving the optimal outcome.
When I’m not working and have some free time, I enjoy making candles, dining out with friends and of course shopping. I also practice yoga daily to keep a healthy mind, body and spirit.
I’m currently studying a double degree – Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Laws at the University of Western Sydney.
I’ve been working across various areas of personal injury law since 2015 and my experience has taught me the importance of client care. I really enjoy contributing on a daily basis to the service of clients who are at vulnerable points in their lives and in need of our legal expertise. It’s a key focus for our team to ensure our clients feel as informed and supported through the claims process as possible.
When I’m not working I enjoy Bikram Yoga and spending quality time with friends and family. I’m also a big foodie.
My years of experience in personal injury law have taught me that no detail is too small, which is why I consistently liaise with relevant parties and compile and actively review all the information in every claim to pre-empt any issues that may arise. At times, certain aspects of claims can become complex and difficult to process for clients, so a big part of my role is to work through this and explain the information to them in a way that’s easy to understand. I love going above and beyond for clients and I’m proud to say that that philosophy is not only encouraged, but shared by everyone here at Law Partners.
Just like no two cases are the same, no two clients are either, so I always take the time to understand who the client is and what their circumstances truly are in order to deliver the best possible outcome for them.
I’ve always considered myself a very creative person, and when I’m not in the office, costume and prop making occupies a lot of my time. I love working with a variety of materials such as foam, thermoplastics and recycled/repurposed household items. I’ve also dabbled in special effects makeup to expand my skillset.
I’ve worked in the legal profession since 2011 and I was excited to join the Law Partners team in 2015. I started my career as a legal assistant, where I learned valuable industry skills and was motivated to study a Bachelor of Legal and Justice at Southern Cross University.
A typical day for me as a paralegal involves taking a very hands-on approach to assisting with matters from start to finish. This includes liaising with clients directly, preparing court documents, legal research and supporting the wider team.
At Law Partners we help people when they’re at a vulnerable time in their lives. We offer support and assistance to alleviate some of the financial stress. Being part of this process is the most satisfying and rewarding part of my job.
After completing studies at Sydney University, I graduated with a Diploma in Law from the Legal Profession Admission Board. Before joining Law Partners, I worked for a large litigation law firm and for experienced, specialised barristers. I was admitted as a solicitor in the Supreme Court in 2010 and I’m a member of the Law Society.
I enjoy working in a client-focused, experienced and well respected claims team at Law Partners. We all make ourselves readily available to speak with our clients so that we can answer any legal questions and ease any concerns they may have about their claims.
My role includes taking initial client enquiries, offering expert legal advice on claim related issues, working with my clients to build strong cases and fighting for their rights. I take great care to ensure each and every one of my cases is investigated thoroughly, to maximise the value of my clients’ claims. The desire to provide excellent service, maintain great communication and continue achieving great results all motivate me to work hard. It’s this motivation that allows me to consistently dedicate 100% of my effort to all of my clients.
To be successful in my role, I must carefully listen to my clients and prepare their cases well. I always ensure my clients are well informed and that they understand exactly what their rights and entitlements are. Once they know where they stand legally, my clients are then able to focus on their rehabilitation and getting back on their feet.
I completed a Bachelor of Commerce (Economics) at Macquarie University in 2017 and I’m currently studying a Bachelor of Laws also at Macquarie University. I have worked in the personal injury and litigation space since 2014 and been involved in the settlement of matters in multiple jurisdictions across NSW, South Australia and Victoria.
My experience in personal injury law has helped me understand how essential establishing an honest and open relationship with the client is to achieving the optimal outcome. That’s why I love working at Law Partners – every staff member knows the importance of transparency and helping the client understand what they need to know, not what they want to hear.
When I’m not in the office and working, I love to sharpen my Brazilian jiu-jitsu skills. I am an avid follower and practitioner of that particular form of martial arts.
I completed my Bachelor of Arts/Bachelor of Laws from the University of Notre Dame before I was admitted as a solicitor of the Supreme Court of NSW in 2015. Since then I have built up my experience and worked in various areas of compensation law including Total Permanent Disability (TPD), public liability, CTP, medical negligence and workers compensation.
My experience in personal injury has helped me understand the true importance of client care – and in this regard, Law Partners is second to none. Most of our clients have never engaged a lawyer before, and so it’s my job to not only steer their claim but ensure they understand the process every step of the way – as we strive to achieve the best possible outcome.
Senior Law Clerk
I have a Bachelor of Arts and a Bachelor of Laws from Macquarie University. I’ve worked in personal injury law since 2001 andI have experience working on CTP, workers compensation, medical negligence and public liability claims. Working on such varied claims has given me a well-rounded education in personal injury law.
Since 2014 I’ve focused solely on the management of life insurance / superannuation insurance claims, particularly total and permanent disablement claims. Life insurance policies can be complicated and difficult for a claimant to understand. Many people are unaware they have TPD lump sum entitlements, let alone understand how to go about making a claim. I enjoy helping people through this process – from advising them of their entitlements, taking them through the claims process and ultimately achieving a great result for them. Calling a client to advise their claim is approved is the most satisfying call I can make!
I review my matters regularly to make sure the claims are proceeding as quickly as possible. I meet with my clients to complete claim documents and consistently have telephone conferences with them to provide them with updates on how their claims are progressing. I work hard to action tasks without delay in an effort to progress my clients’ claims in a timely manner. I liaise with third parties to obtain material relevant to my clients’ claims and contact the superannuation funds and insurers regularly requesting they expedite the assessment of my clients’ claims.
I’m currently studying a Bachelor of Psychology (Honours) and Law at Macquarie University.
Working as a professional in personal injury law, you learn very quickly that no two clients are the same, so the approach to every claim needs to be tailored to the specific needs of the individual. The only way to really ensure that the client achieves the best possible outcome is to go that extra step to really get to know the client and understand exactly how the accident or injury has impacted their life and the lives of their loved ones.
It’s so encouraging to come into work every day and know my colleagues here at Law Partners share this passion to go above and beyond for our clients.
When I’m not working, I like to sew, design clothes and play music – either piano or violin.
I have many years of claims experience, having joined Law Partners in 2006. I have a Diploma of Business (Legal Services) from TAFE.
A major part of my role is communicating with our clients. We pride ourselves on being readily accessible to our clients and providing advice to them in an easy to understand manner. It’s very important to me that our clients know they can ask us as many questions as they like, any time.
Other aspects of my role include explaining the legal process to clients, as well as providing them with an understanding of their entitlements. I also review files and carry out research to support arguments our solicitors wish to use against the insurer, draft correspondence and follow up on the progress of claims to ensure they are resolved quickly.
I’m currently studying a double degree Bachelor of Laws and Business at the University of Technology Sydney.
The most satisfying part of my job is being able to help clients at a particularly vulnerable stage in their lives. At Law Partners, the clients always come first. It’s satisfying knowing that every piece of work you do is going to have a genuine impact.
In personal injury law, client care is absolutely vital throughout the life of the claim, and in that respect, Law Partners is second to none.
When I’m not working, I like nothing more than spending time with family and friends.
I completed a Bachelor of Laws and Bachelor of Arts (International and Global Studies) at the University of Sydney and attained a Graduate Diploma of Legal Practice at College of Law. In terms of experience, I’ve worked in the legal department of a major insurer specialising in permanent impairment and liability, before transitioning into a Technical Specialist role as a workers compensation subject matter expert.
In terms of job satisfaction, it’s always a special feeling to be able to deliver news of a great compensation outcome to a client – but for me, it goes beyond that. I get the most satisfaction in seeing my clients get their life back on track and knowing that I played a part in facilitating that.
When I’m not working, I love nothing more than spending time with family, friends and my pet cat Coco.
Accredited Specialist in Personal Injury Law
I’ve worked in the legal industry for over 10 years and was admitted as a solicitor of the Supreme Court in 2008. I’m an Accredited Specialist in Personal Injury Law, and I’ve appeared in various courts as well as tribunals. This experience means that I’m able to listen to my clients’ needs, prepare their cases thoroughly and maximise their compensation payouts.
I understand that my clients have been wrongfully injured which can pose physical and emotional challenges, so I aim to make the claims process as easy and stress-free as possible. I believe in building and maintaining a strong and trusting relationship with my clients, so communication is very important to me. I’m dedicated to tailoring my work to the individual needs of my clients, and I provide advice and guidance to my clients on a regular basis.
I work hard to conduct cases efficiently and effectively to get the best results for my clients.
I completed a double degree – Bachelor of Laws and International Studies at the University of Western Sydney and was admitted as a solicitor by the Supreme Court of NSW in 2006.
I have worked as a compensation law professional for over 14 years and my experience has taught me the importance of taking the time to familiarise yourself with the client and their circumstances in order to properly assess exactly how their life has been impacted by their injury. That is why I love working here at Law Partners – the emphasis on delivering premium client service is second to none and everyone understands the true value of client service in ultimately achieving the best possible outcome.
When I’m not working I do my best to spend as much time with my family and friends as possible. I also enjoy travelling and seeing new places.
I thoroughly enjoy the face to face contact with clients and I pride myself in showing empathy and understanding at all times. To be given the opportunity to work alongside such a dedicated team of professionals at Law Partners is an honour. I especially look forward to greeting and assisting our valued clients.
I completed my Bachelor of Arts / Law with major in philosophy at Sydney University along with a Bachelor of Medicine / Bachelor of Surgery at the University of Notre Dame and Graduate Diploma of Legal Practice at College of Law.
My extensive experience across medicine and law have taught me the importance of being extremely thorough when examining all the evidence and always establishing a clear line of communication with the client.
For me, transparency is the key component in delivering superior client care – a value that is certainly shared across the firm which is a big reason why I love working at Law Partners.
When I’m not working I’m probably spending quality time with my family. I also love bushwalking, gardening and relaxing with a good book.
I’m currently studying a double degree Bachelor of Laws and Arts (majoring in International Relations) at Macquarie University.
To me, it’s important that I feel as though I am making a difference, which is why I decided to pursue a career in personal injury law. There are so many people suffering as a result of an accident and are in desperate need of professional legal assistance in order to help them get their life back on track. And it’s so satisfying to be able to provide assistance to those in need every day.
When I’m not working, I really enjoy music – either playing guitar or singing. I also like to socialise with friends and watching movies when I can.
I’m currently studying a Bachelor of Laws and Commerce (Majoring in Economics) at Macquarie University. During my studies, I achieved first place in Contract Law and a place on the Dean’s Merit List for 2017 and 2018.
I have worked as a legal professional in personal injury law since 2017 across a number of practice areas including workers compensation, public liability and TPD. My experience has taught me the importance of client care and establishing a trusting bond with the client from the outset in order to properly understand their situation to achieve the best possible outcome.
When I’m not working, I’m usually spending time outdoors – playing netball, going on walks or finding new lookouts.
Prior to pursuing a career in the legal industry, I completed a Bachelor of Nursing at Western Sydney University in 2009 and worked as a Registered Nurse both in the private and public sector. I then went on to attain a Master of Juris Doctor from the University of Technology Sydney in 2015, and was admitted as a Solicitor at the Supreme Court of NSW as well as a member of the Law Society of NSW.
It is genuinely quite refreshing to work for a law firm that focuses on taking a holistic approach towards their clients’ needs. We choose ’empathy’ because we truly care about the plight each individual client experiences and the service we provide is second to none.
We are renowned as being Australia’s largest ‘specialist’ personal injury law firm – simply for our difference in approach and the outcomes we achieve.
Outside of work I love nothing more than to travel and explore different regions of the world. I also enjoy playing piano.
I completed a Diploma of Law, Legal Practitioners Admission Board and was admitted to the NSW Supreme Court in 1998. I’ve notched up over 22 years experience working as a legal professional in personal injury law – specialising in workers compensation and public liability claims.
Many of the clients we work with are in an extremely vulnerable position both mentally and physically, and my experience in compensation law has taught me that it’s imperative to take the time to get to know each client personally in order to achieve an outcome that will help them get their lives back on track. It’s great to know that I work at a firm that shares this client-first philosophy.
When I’m not working, I love to head out to the beach and surf or work up a sweat playing tennis or golf.
I’m a solicitor admitted in the Supreme Court and have over five years’ experience working within the legal industry and in compensation law. Our clients require our services at one of the most difficult times in their lives. It’s my role to lift the burden of them having to deal with the complexities of the legal system by themselves.
My working day involves speaking with clients, both in person and over the phone, and ensuring that they’re aware of their rights and obligations, explaining the claims process, drafting letters and legal documents and attending various tribunals to ensure that each and every client gets what they’re rightfully entitled to.
I’m motivated by going above and beyond for my clients and exceeding their expectations. I pride myself on being readily available to answer all claim-related questions for my clients. Clear communication helps ensure the smooth running of the claim process and great results. By listening to my clients, I can ensure I’ve considered every aspect of their cases and that they have understood all the advice I’ve provided.
I’m currently studying a Bachelor of Laws at the University of New England and I’ve worked in personal injury law across a number of practice areas since 2016.
Sudden injury affects people in so many ways – physically, emotionally and financially. When our clients come to us, it’s so important that I do what I can to make them feel at ease that they’re in the right hands and with a firm who will do all they can to achieve the best possible outcome, so they can focus on getting better.
When I’m not working I love to socialise with friends and family, get in a game of tennis or take my dog on hikes.
As a receptionist I take pride in our customer service. We’re the first point of contact for our clients and it’s important they don’t feel overwhelmed or intimated by the process ahead of them. It’s important to me that they understand we’re here to help and direct their inquiry to the best person. I always take the time to listen to the individual needs of our clients. I understand that no two claims are the same, and it’s important we give each client the attention and care they deserve.
The team at Law Partners are genuinely caring, warm, compassionate and honest people. I love being part of a team of people who have the same set of professional values no matter the job title. I think this is the key to creating a positive, authentic and caring work environment and I’m very proud to work here.
I studied at the University of Western Sydney and obtained a Bachelors degree in Law and Social Sciences, majoring in Criminology in 2016. But I began my workers compensation journey in 2014, working as a paralegal at personal injury law firm. In 2017, I completed the Graduate Diploma of Legal Practice and was admitted as a Lawyer in the Supreme Court of NSW.
I often think it’s important to realise that no client intends or sets out to get injured and navigating the workers compensation system can take its toll on an injured person. That’s why I specifically set out to understand exactly what each client is going through, which in turn, gives me the best possible chance to help them realise their compensation potential.
What I love about working at Law Partners is that I’m surrounded by people who share my passion for achieving the best possible outcome for each and every client.
When I’m not working you’ll probably find me watching the V8 Supercars or taking part in a performance car cruise. I also love to watch the NRL and I like to stay fit by playing competitive soccer.
I’m a solicitor admitted to the Supreme Court, having obtained a law degree from the University of Western Sydney and an arts degree and a diploma in education from the University of Newcastle. I’m also an Accredited Specialist in Personal Injury Law and a member of the Law Society.
I have more than a decade of experience dealing with complex claims. Throughout my entire career I’ve been motivated and driven by a strong desire to provide assistance to those who require it the most. It’s this desire to help people in need that pushes me every day to achieve great results for my clients and exceed their expectations in the process.
Being a calm-natured and patient person, I find that the best way to help my clients with their claims is to first focus on listening to them and understanding their needs, and then to set about fulfilling and exceeding those needs.
Whether it’s obtaining my clients’ instructions, completing various forms, gathering evidence or dealing and negotiating with insurance companies, I’m always equally meticulous in my work. I patiently give every client my undivided attention to ensure that nothing is missed and that my clients receive maximum payout of their entitlements.
Team Leader - Client Care
I’ve worked in personal injury law since 1995. I had a small two-year break in 1997 where I gained some experience in property law, however I returned to personal injury law because I like being able to help people when they need it most. Client service really is an integral part of this process.
Embarking on the claim process can be intimidating, so it’s my number one priority to assist our clients through this step by step. I help people understand exactly what they need to do and what they can expect from Law Partners in return. As a Client Services Coordinator, I book clients in for their initial appointment after they’ve spoken to a solicitor. It’s important to me to establish trust and a good rapport with our clients so they feel at ease and not overwhelmed. We go to great lengths to ensure they understand what to expect from their first meeting with a solicitor so there are no surprises.
We talk to our clients multiple times through the claims process to make sure they’re happy with the progress and the way their case is being handled. It’s reassuring to work in a firm like Law Partners and feel confident that the feedback we receive will be positive.
My day consists of a lot of time on the phone, which I really enjoy, helping people through the initial steps of making a claim and registering the files in our system.
I’m currently studying a Bachelor of Laws majoring in International Law and and Global Governance at Macquarie University.
As a paralegal, meeting tight deadlines and completing time sensitive tasks is all part of the job, but I enjoy working in a fast-paced environment and feel as though I produce my best work under pressure. On a typical day I often draft important correspondence and applications, liaise with clients, prepare settlement documents and arrange medical appointments.
When I’m not working, I try to head down to the beach any chance I get. I love swimming, surfing, diving – pretty much any water activity.
I started working in the legal industry and dealing with claims in 1993. I commenced as a legal secretary and, after completing a legal secretarial course with the Law Society, I continued to further develop my knowledge and skills and progressed to the role of claims paralegal. After more than two decades of experience dealing with claims, I’ve become completely immersed in my work. As a result of my desire to help our clients with as many aspects of their claims as possible, I also became a Justice of the Peace.
I find dealing with claims particularly rewarding as it provides me with an ongoing opportunity to assist our clients on the most personal level, something that I pride myself on, and that makes my career satisfying. My role is built around guiding our clients through various steps and processes and making the entire journey as easy and stress free as possible for them.
Everyone in our team works closely together, motivated and driven by a shared desire to deliver exceptional client service and the best possible outcomes for our clients. At Law Partners that desire is shared within every team across the entire firm, and that’s what makes a real difference and enables us to achieve great results for our clients.
My role involves many different tasks, including continuous and proactive communication with clients aimed at keeping them fully informed of the status and progress of their claims, gathering various materials and evidence to support their claims, preparing numerous legal documents and liaising with insurance companies to ensure that our clients’ rights and entitlements are protected and enforced.
Client Care Specialist
I’ve worked in client services since 2005, and I developed an early appreciation of the importance of good client service. Through my role as client services coordinator at Law Partners I’m able to apply and build on my experience, to make sure we provide outstanding service to all of our clients.
As a firm, caring for our clients drives everything we do, so I have a big responsibility to make sure we maintain that focus. My role involves constant communication with our clients from the very first steps of booking appointments with our solicitors to the successful resolutions of their claims.
This continuous and open communication with our clients means we get to really understand their needs. We do everything we can to address their needs and provide a level of client service that is without a match in the industry. This gives me enormous satisfaction and a sense pride in what I do, and fuels my desire to continue to find new ways to help our clients.
Following my admission as a solicitor in 1980 and as a barrister in 1986, I worked both as a Crown Prosecutor for a period of seven years and as a solicitor for the remainder of my ongoing legal career.
Over a period of more than thirty years since my admission as a solicitor, I’ve worked on more legal cases than one’s memory could recall and have found my career extremely rewarding, both in terms of the wealth of experience I’ve gained and the large number of people that I’ve had privilege to help in protecting and enforcing their rights.
It‘s this desire of mine to go beyond average efforts to help people in need of legal advice and assistance that saw me join Law Partners – a team of people with goals aligned with my own. With decades of experience behind me, including experience in work place and other civil claims, I focus on and practice in the area of superannuation claims. I love my work as a whole, but one of the most rewarding aspects of my role is ensuring that my clients get the maximum benefits they’re entitled to.
Whilst my work involves a large number of varied tasks, I could describe it as being divided into two main categories of activities. Firstly, taking time to explain to my clients about superannuation claims and entitlements, and secondly, setting out on a path to pursue and enforce their rights and entitlements, and help them to make successful superannuation claims. Bridging this gap between the lack of awareness and understanding of superannuation claims and people’s rights and potential entitlements under the superannuation scheme is exactly where my role starts.
The area of superannuation and the relevant laws governing it are often not sufficiently understood. Many people are either completely unaware of their rights and entitlements under the superannuation scheme and relevant laws, or are inadequately informed in relation to any such rights and entitlements.
I completed a Bachelor of Law and Bachelor of Arts (majoring in Criminology) with Honours at Macquarie University in 2017 before completing a Graduate Diploma of Legal Practice a year later. I was then admitted as a lawyer in the Supreme Court of NSW.
I feel as though it’s impossible to work as an effective personal injury law solicitor and not have a strong sense of empathy and a real passion for helping people in need. Every day I step into the office I strive to not only obtain the best possible result for my clients but also do all I can to assist them through what is always an extremely difficult time in their lives.
When I’m not working, I love to spend time with family and friends. I also enjoy hiking and visiting new places.
I’ve spent the best part of 20 years working in the legal industry in a number of different roles and areas. My experience has certainly taught me about the importance of client service and how critical it is to establish a strong rapport with the client in order to achieve the best outcome possible.
The way Law Partners operates as a firm really aligns with my professional values. It’s so important to us that we really get to know our clients so we can support them through the distressing time they’re often in. The most rewarding part of my role is definitely taking some of the burden and stress off our clients as we help them navigate their compensation claims.
When I’m not working, I love nothing more than to spend time outdoors whether it’s out boating, going on long hikes or swimming at the beach.
I was born in Ukraine and grew up in New Zealand where I completed a Bachelor of Laws and a Bachelor of Commerce (Accounting and Taxation) from the University of Canterbury. Following the completion of my studies, I was admitted to the High Court of New Zealand before relocating to Sydney where I went on to work in the areas of medical negligence, motor vehicle accidents and public and product liability litigation.
As an experienced legal professional, I know there is nothing more important than ensuring the client and their needs come first. This mantra is not enforced everywhere else, but I’m proud to say that at Law Partners, we all take great pride in making sure our clients are at the forefront of everything we do.
My experience has also taught me that it is essential to find a way to best liaise and work with other professionals who may be involved in a case, in order to achieve the ideal resolution for our clients.
When I’m not working I love to play guitar and stay active through a number of different activities, including surfing and Muay Thai training.
Team Leader - Support Staff
I completed a Bachelor of Social Science majoring in Criminology and Criminal Justice at the University of Western Sydney in 2014, Certificate of Workforce Essentials at Charles Sturt University in 2017 and bring over a decade of experience in the legal industry across personal injury law. I was thrilled to join Law Partners in 2018 having worked in the capacity of Paralegal, now Team Leader – Support Staff.
I take great pride in my standard of work and the culture of our team at Law Partners. My ultimate motivation behind everything that I do is to mentor and guide our support staff using the most effective tools and technology to ensure we maintain a positive and successful relationship with our clients and stakeholders.
When I am not busy working I enjoy winding down at the gym and spending some quality time with family and friends.
I’ve completed a Bachelor of Laws/Bachelor of Business and Commerce (Management) at Western Sydney University in 2019 and I was also a Member of the International Golden Keys Honour Society (top 15 percent of university students worldwide).
There are so many things I love about working as a solicitor at Law Partners – everyone is enthusiastic and client-focused, all the staff members are approachable, but most importantly, the firm gives me a chance to positively impact the life of someone going through a difficult period every day.
When I’m not working, I love to powerlift and spend quality time with friends and family.
I’m currently studying a Bachelor of Law and International Studies at Macquarie University.
For me, the best part of my job is getting the chance to communicate with many of our clients. Our client base is so culturally diverse and it’s so important to establish a strong line of communication in order to properly understand exactly how the injury has impacted not only their life but the lives of those closest to them.
When I’m not working, I’m either playing AFL or soccer with my mates. I am also a passionate supporter of the Geelong Cats and Liverpool F.C.
I’ve completed a Graduate Diploma in Paralegal Studies and I’m currently studying a Bachelor of Law at the University of New England. I’ve proudly worked as a legal professional in personal injury law since 2017 across a number of areas including public liability, CTP and workers compensation.
Continuous and open communication with our clients gives me and us as a firm a great opportunity to completely understand our clients’ needs. We do everything we can to address their needs and provide a level of client care that is without a match in the industry.
When I’m not working, I love playing netball with friends and taking my dog for long walks.
I’ve worked at Law Partners since 2010 and genuinely enjoy being a part of such a fun, hard-working and energetic team who are an incredible group of people.
My role as a paralegal involves completing court applications and a number of other tasks that help support the wider legal team. To be successful in my role, I must be extremely organised and understand the needs of both the solicitors and the clients. Throughout my day I take the time to understand each matter and prepare the best application for each individual client.
It’s really important that each client clearly understands what they are entitled to, and that this information is communicated to them in a way that makes sense at a stressful time in their lives. We’re committed to supporting our clients through this process with excellent service, and ensuring they receive the best outcome.
I have a Bachelor of Law and a Bachelor of Arts majoring in Psychology from the University of Western Sydney. I’ve worked in personal injury law since 2014 across multiple practice areas including CTP and workers compensation. This experience across multiple areas of personal injury law has given me well-rounded knowledge and expertise, which I apply to my clients’ cases.
My day is spent understanding and critically reviewing every client and case individually. I invest a lot of my time in the process as I truly believe that building a trusting relationship with the client will allow me to better understand their circumstances and therefore ensure they receive maximum compensation for their injury. I speak to all of my clients on a regular basis to make sure they understand the status of their case and feel comfortable with the options available to them and the overall progress of their case. I also want them to feel confident in our expertise and comfortable in the knowledge that we’re doing everything we can for them.
My day is also spent working with my team to review our matters and ensure everything’s on track and all claims are being progressed. I systematically problem solve any legal issues I come across, and I love that whatever we do at Law Partners we always have the best interest of the client in mind. I can see this value mirrored in every task that’s carried out by every staff member.
I’ve worked in personal injury law since 2006, starting my career as a legal secretary and transitioning to paralegal when I joined the Law Partners team in 2016. My wide range of experience in personal injury law means that I have an extensive understanding of the legal process and can help explain this to our clients. I can prioritise the information that clients need to know to simplify the process and ensure they don’t feel overwhelmed with information. This is a key part of my role and the bit I enjoy the most. I love hearing people’s stories and working through to a solution that will directly impact their day to day lives.
A typical day for me is very busy – it’s non-stop. I really enjoy this fast-paced environment, but it does mean that I have to be extremely organised to ensure all my deadlines are met. My day consists of speaking to clients directly, preparing documents, lodging court documents and preparing matters for hearings.
I’ve completed a Bachelor of Laws at the University of Canberra and was admitted as a solicitor in 2020. I’ve also worked as a professional in compensation law since 2015.
For as long as I can remember, I’ve always wanted to be an advocate for those in need. That is why Law Partners is such a great fit for me – the client always comes first and the firm consistently encourages its staff to embrace the chance to help a client get their life back on track.
When I’m not working I love spending time with friends and family and I try to make the most of any beautiful sunny day by getting out to the beach.
I completed a Bachelor of Laws from the University of Wollongong along with a Graduate Diploma of Legal Practice from the Australian National University before being admitted as a solicitor in July 2015. My experience in personal injury law is quite extensive having worked across a number of areas as a solicitor including medical negligence, workers compensation, motor vehicle accidents and public liability.
The main reason I love working as a compensation solicitor, aside from helping people in need, is being able to witness first hand the sheer courage displayed by clients to want to get their life back on track when they’ve endured extreme hardship. Their strength inspires me to go above and beyond to deliver them the best outcome possible.
When I’m not working I’m either doing yoga, enjoying a picnic outside in the sun or visiting new and exciting places.
I’m a solicitor admitted to the Supreme Court and I’m also a member of the Law Society. I have over 12 years of relevant experience working in personal injury compensation, now specialising in motor accident claims.
I’m determined to pursue my passion for helping clients in need. I believe that giving clients time, respect and compassion is vital to being a personal injury lawyer. I genuinely care about people and take seriously the fact that people rely on me when they are at their most vulnerable. I understand that the claims process can appear to be daunting and stressful. I take that burden from our clients so they can concentrate on their recovery and getting their lives back on track.
I’m proud to be working with Law Partners who are dedicated to delivering the best client service possible. There’s a strong team spirit at the firm – everyone’s common goal is to ensure client satisfaction and excellent results.
I am currently studying a Bachelor of Business Administration and Bachelor of Laws at Macquarie University. I’ve successfully completed a Laws Honours Program with a thesis analysing the interplay between artificial intelligence and copyright law.
It’s so incredibly important to really attain a thorough understanding of how the injury/accident has impacted each and every client in order to provide the best service possible, and ultimately, deliver the outcome they deserve. That’s why I love working at Law Partners, this attention to detail and commitment to client service is encouraged and supported on a daily basis – which I believe gives us the best chance of success.
When I’m not working, I enjoy playing golf and spending time with friends.
I’m currently studying a double degree of Arts/Laws at the University of New South Wales.
It’s really satisfying to let a client know that we will do everything in our power to ensure they achieve the best possible outcome with their claim. It becomes one less thing for them to worry about, because it means they have more time to focus on what matters most – getting their life back on track.
When I’m not working I love collecting, playing and recommending board games.
