Emily has experienced first-hand the impact that injuries can have on entire families. As a child, she saw her grandfather take his own WorkCover claim all the way to the Supreme Court. Now practicing in WorkCover and Motor Vehicle Law, Emily is grateful for the opportunity to help others during particularly difficult times in their lives.
Emily always knew that she wanted to work with people and have a career that challenges her. She studied at Deakin University and graduated with a Bachelor of Laws (Honours) in 2017. Throughout her degree she did a major sequence in journalism. For two and a half years she worked as a journalist for various Geelong-based publications while completing her Law degree. The interviewing and relationship-building skills she developed during that time helped her to better prepare for a career in Law.
Other career-building experiences followed: internships at Barwon Community Legal Centre and a conveyancing firm plus volunteering at Villamanta Disability Rights Legal Service and clerkships with other law firms prior to joining Shine Lawyers. The opportunity to engage with people from all walks of life, as well as the challenges of litigation, drew Emily to Personal Injury Law.
