With more than 15 years’ experience as a lawyer in the Toowoomba and surrounding regions, I feel inspired to provide assistance to rural landholders and stand up for their rights in a very challenging and imposing industry. My rural background and continued connection to the land is invaluable in understanding my client’s troubles, especially when it comes to coal seam gas, mining and other energy and resource matters.
The Energy Team at Shine Lawyers has a genuine commitment to helping rural landholders affected by the energy and resources industries. That commitment has been demonstrated over many years through strong advocacy for landholders, which combined with our legal experience, knowledge of property valuation theory and hands on rural knowledge, sets us apart from our competitors.
I believe it is very important to understand what landholders want to achieve and what they want but at the same time be able to provide solid guidance as to what is achievable for them. Each landholder is different, just like each case is different, and I believe it is vital to approach every situation with a fresh outlook to get the best possible outcome for the client. Nothing is more rewarding then to be able to see what it means to rural landholders when you achieve a great result for them.
In my role as an Associate in Shine Lawyers Toowoomba branch, I want to continue to be a valuable source of legal knowledge for rural landholder affected by the energy and resources industry and provide justice for them. Nothing is more important than standing up for everyday rural Australians and getting the best result possible.
