Melanie is passionate about the law because it affords justice and aid to people in need. She finds it rewarding knowing that every day she is able to use her legal skills to help give each of her clients a voice and get back in control of their lives.
Primarily practising in Abuse Law and compensation claims, Melanie also has expertise in Personal Injury Law and Wills and Estate Law. Prior to starting at Shine, her professional background was mostly focused on commercial law, succession planning and property, which has helped her to understand how vulnerable some clients can be and the importance of helping them whilst they are going through what is often one of the most difficult times of their lives.
Melanie is distinguished by her commitment to take the time to get to know each client and understand their situation to provide them with frank, sensible and tailored advice.
While studying her Bachelor of Laws (Honours) at Griffith University, Melanie participated in the Innocence Project, which aims to exonerate wrongfully convicted people. This was one of the reasons she wanted to join the Shine Lawyers team, as she is passionate about righting wrong.
