Catie finds it extremely rewarding to help people when they’re facing one of the most difficult times of their lives. Practicing in the areas of WorkCover and Worker’s Compensation, Catie enjoys having day to day contact with clients and being hands-on in terms of running files from the initial interview all the way to the hearing.
Catie completed a Bachelor of Laws (Honours) at Deakin University, graduating in 2008. She then completed articles at Arnold Thomas and Becker, was admitted to practice in 2010 and obtained employment with the Child Protection Litigation Office. After moving to London she worked as a contract attorney for various magic circle law firms. Upon returning to Australia she spent time working a number of prominent law firms before finding employment with Shine Lawyers.
Catie works hard to ensure she knows more about her clients than just their injuries. She’s interested in forming relationships and learning all about client’s lives in order to make more accurate assessments of their post-injury losses. When preparing matters, she puts herself in the shoes of defendants and looks at the cases from their perspectives in order to cover all bases.
