Amy is renowned for her trauma-informed approach to building trust with her clients, and her steely resolve to take on the hard cases other firms won’t. 

Abuse law

“For survivors of abuse, often the process is about more than just compensation – it can be about being heard, about ensuring abuse doesn’t occur to future children and about supporting people who are in similar situations.”

Amy has spent more than a decade helping abuse survivors seek justice against their perpetrators, and the institutions which failed to protect them. 

Whether the predators lurk in church organisations, educational institutions, or medical facilities, Amy stands ready to take the fight to those who commit these unspeakable acts. 

As one of the leaders of Shine’s abuse law practice in Victoria, Amy is a vocal advocate for survivors, having pushed for a parliamentary inquiry into sexual abuse at government run schools. 

She is extremely well regarded in abuse law having represented survivors at Royal Commission public hearings, as well as speaking with hundreds of people impacted by physical and sexual abuse. 

Amy’s is driven by her desire to try to bring light into the darkest of places. She is a trusted, compassionate lawyer who has spent her career winning compensation for some of society’s most vulnerable people.
