Fleur Hawes


Shine Lawyers Brisbane


Passionate, dedicated and creative, Fleur puts her client’s experience at the core of every case.

Superannuation and disability insurance

“I intimately understand the courage and determination required to tell your truth and am committed to helping others draw their line between right and wrong and seek justice.”

Based in Brisbane, Fleur is a Solicitor in our Superannuation & Insurance Claims team with a particular focus on helping clients appeal declined decisions from their insurer or clients who have pre-existing medical conditions to secure their full entitlements.

Coming from a rural, low-income background, Fleur was the first in her family to attend university –

“I understand firsthand the barriers to justice, equity and equality in Australia. I am deeply aware of the privilege of being a member of the legal profession and strongly believe in my duty to give back to my community.”

It’s this determination and dedication to her craft that saw Fleur help her client to secure justice with a successful appeal after a 10-year legal battle during which her client’s claim was rejected twice.

“In every case we win, we help individuals shine; but each win also brings further development to the law and precedents for our whole community. For me, when one of us shines, we all shine.”

Fleur’s passion to give back to her community continues outside of work, where she is a regular blood donor, a respite foster carer and provides volunteer help to the elderly and homeless. She is also an advocate for mental health; previously speaking at Batyr events to help reduce the stigma surrounding getting mental health help.
