Karen Jarman is a Brisbane-based solicitor with over 12 years’ experience in the legal profession. Bilingual and dual-qualified, Karen is able to apply her breadth of knowledge to the intricacies and complexities of medical negligence claims.

Karen studied law at Durham University in the United Kingdom, graduating in 2000. After completing her university studies, Karen worked with homeless youths in a direct access hostel before being admitted as a solicitor. Upon arrival in Australia, Karen undertook a conversion course at the University of Sydney, and was admitted to practice in Australia in 2014.

Karen uncovered her love for the combination of medicine and law after studying Health Law at university. She made a resolute decision that this was the only area of law she wanted to practice, and stuck to her commitment.

“I enjoy the combination of law and medicine, and being able to make a real difference to the lives of my clients.”

Prior to joining Shine Lawyers, Karen accumulated a wealth of legal experience and expertise in the United Kingdom. First working with a small legal aid firm on the south coast of England, she went on to work in the medical negligence department of one of the largest plaintiff law firms in the United Kingdom, where she gained invaluable experience in catastrophic injury claims.

Karen thrives on the complexity of the medical negligence claims she runs, and the ability to make a difference in her clients’ lives. Compassionate and sincere, Karen builds strong relationships with those she represents, enabling her to obtain the outcomes that truly matter to her clients.
