Melissa wants to help people who through no fault of their own have been injured or suffered illness. She realises that often lawyers are their last resort and a voice that reassures them that when they don’t feel strong enough to take on the big guys, someone else is on their side.
Upon leaving high school, Melissa commenced a Bachelor of Legal Studies degree at Murdoch University. She has worked for Shine Lawyers for more than 11 years, in Western Australia, Victoria and now in Queensland. While her main line of work is personal injury, she has been fortunate enough to work in a variety of areas including criminal, commercial, family, banking and finance and wills and probate. She’s also enthusiastic about volunteer work both in and out of the legal field. She spent two years volunteering with the Red Cross in their mobile soup kitchen and helping out at the Brimbank Melton Legal Centre.
Melissa brings passion and heart into her job and won’t give up until she can provide her clients with positive outcomes and closure. To add another arrow in the quiver, Melissa became a Justice of the Peace in 2017.
