Charmaine Bastin joined the team at Shine Lawyers in 2010 and is the Acting Branch Manager of their Caboolture office. With the help of Shine’s team of legal experts, Charmaine works to make a difference in her clients’ lives, granting them the ability to seek justice through the legal system.
Charmaine is passionate about representing members of the local community, having lived in the Sunshine Coast locality for over 20 years. She obtained her Bachelor of Laws from the University of Southern Queensland while working for Shine’s Maroochydore branch. Since then, she has become a leader in her chosen field of expertise, winning the first purely psychiatric bullying case in Queensland.
“Lawyers are about making and changing the law. We can’t do this if we don’t stand up for our clients and believe in their case.”
Charmaine maintains an active presence among the local community and has a proud history of volunteer work. She initiated a relationship with Sunshine Coast school Unity College, where she acted as a mentor for young students. She has also been heavily involved in fundraising initiatives for charity Listen for Lucy and domestic violence causes.
A fierce advocate for all she represents, Charmaine will be with her client every step of the way to ensure they achieve the just results they are entitled to under Queensland’s legal system.
