Bridget is a Senior Associate in Shine Lawyers’ Class Actions team who has broad ranging experience in high profile and complex claims including the DePuy Class Action for defective hip implants and ongoing litigation against Johnson & Johnson and American Medical Systems in relation to their pelvic mesh implants.

“I work in a unique area of practice and act for large groups of people who have been the subject of the wrongdoing of others. Working for people in these situations keeps you grounded and focused on securing the best outcome for them whilst operating in a complex and dynamic legal environment.”

Her expertise was integral in helping Australian women to achieve justice in the class action against Johnson & Johnson for defective mesh products. The large-scale action fought for compensation and acknowledgement for thousands of women who suffered unbearable pain and irreparable damage after they received implants that were not fit for use. 

Bridget completed a Bachelor of Laws / Bachelor of Psychology at Griffith University, before being admitted in 2011 to the Supreme Court of Queensland. Prior to joining Shine Lawyers in 2011, Bridget worked in a boutique criminal law firm where she gained experience on criminal law matters and enjoyed the spontaneity and challenges of court work.
