Empathy is such an integral value for every successful personal injury solicitor because it enables you to truly understand the client’s circumstances and build a connection with them. And a strong solicitor/client connection is the foundation of a successful claim.
Growing up, I always wanted to pursue an occupation where I could make a difference and help people through a time of difficulty. This desire, coupled with the fact that I was always interested in the law at school, ultimately paved the way for me to become a personal injury solicitor.
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 lives back on track and knowing that I played a part in facilitating that.
The standout moment in my career thus far has to be getting admitted as a solicitor. It was a surreal feeling and reward for years of hard work.
In my own time:
Away from work, I love watching and playing sport, in particular, basketball and rugby league.
Qualifications and accreditations:
- Admitted, Supreme Court of NSW
- Bachelor of Laws and Commerce
My husband and I spoke with James David. He patiently listened to our situation and was very understanding, asked the right questions and gave us various options to consider.
Thankfully, with James’ advice and support I was able to come to a financial settlement with the concerned party without the need to pursue it legally.
James still supported us through that process even though we hadn’t formally engaged law partners.
James was very responsive the whole time and communicated clearly and empathetically. I wouldn’t hesitate engaging James in future should the need arise and would recommend law partners. If you think you have a claim it’s certainly worth giving them a call.
