I strive to empower individuals to seek justice when they need it. Justice can play a crucial role in transforming both an individual’s life and their wider community.

Growing up in a regional community, I was instilled with a strong sense of altruism. My passion lies in justice, civil litigation, and social change. Being a personal injury lawyer allows me to explore those passions while giving back to my community.

I like to be approachable and accessible to answer my client’s questions. I understand litigation is an anxious time, so being available is important to me. I also take a very detail oriented and staunch approach to advocacy, leaving no stone unturned and ensuring defendants are held accountable.

Career highlight:

My career highlight has been securing compensation for a 26-year-old who sustained injuries while at work, and assisting a family in seeking compensation for their young boy who was bullied at school.

In my own time:

In my spare time, I like to keep fit and healthy, travel, read and get outside.
