 ‘I always think in terms of how can I best help a client today achieve their goals.’

After 28 years’ of practicing plaintiff litigation and having spent the majority of that time as a sole practitioner representing clients interests, I know what it takes to stand up against insurance companies and large corporations. I joined Shine Lawyers in 2012 to meet the changing and growing challenges in this area of law and couldn’t be happier.

Over the years, I believe it has been my tenacity and never say die approach to pursuing my clients’ rights that has seen many positive outcomes. Standing up against the government, insurers and the big end of town for ordinary mums and dads really is an honor and it’s a big motivator.

As a Solicitor and Special Counsel at Shine Lawyers in Newcastle, I want to continue to provide an outstanding legal service to the community. I believe the team in Newcastle has a wealth of experience and is focused on changing the lives of clients for the better. We provide a quality personal compensation legal service in New South Wales and can help you get the compensation you deserve.
