Margot has been committed to a career in Law since high school, when she chose the elective ‘Legal Studies’ on a whim. By her second class, she had decided that she would be a lawyer. She arranged to do some work experience with the associate to the Honourable Justice Alan Wilson in the District Planning and Environment Court over the summer holidays and has been focused on Law ever since.
Margot graduated from a Bachelor of Laws at QUT in 2015 and was admitted to practice Law in 2017. Throughout her degree she worked at Gadens Lawyers, beginning with a summer clerkship and eventually entering the graduate program. As a graduate she spent time in the Litigation team in 2016 and the Property team in 2017.
After joining Shine Lawyers in the Insolvency and Litigation team in Brisbane, Margot has relocated to Toowoomba to join the Abuse Law team. Margot is passionate about assisting survivors of Abuse to receive compensation and therefore a way to continue their lives.
