Catie is a Senior Associate and Legal Practice Manager with over a decade of experience in the legal industry. She 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 Motor Vehicle and TAC Claims as well as WorkCover and Workers 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 understands that, for most people, the legal process can be complex and difficult to understand. She feels it is important to help people navigate this process, breaking it down and explaining in clear, simple terms. Catie works hard to form relationships with clients and learn about their lives beyond their injuries, 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.
“Seeing the positive impact that I can make on my clients’ lives drive me, as does the desire to ensure that even the most vulnerable people have the ability to access their entitlements.”
Catie lives and works in Melbourne’s south-western corridor where she is the Legal Practice Manager of our Sunshine, Geelong and Werribee offices. In addition to her work with Shine, Catie also volunteers her time as a committee member for the Sunshine Business Association, a group who supports and advocates for local businesses.
