Senior Associate, Brisbane at Shine Lawyers Ltd

Specialising in Plaintiff Litigation, I have spent many years fighting against insurance companies and other large organisations to obtain justice for my clients. I was delighted to join Shine Lawyers and to be given the opportunity to lead this fight in my department. Like myself, the team here is focused on getting the best outcomes for clients, whom we treat like family.

I have seen what many of our clients go through; I have stood shoulder to shoulder with them and been there during some of their darkest times. To be able to restore some of their dignity and self-respect that insurers have taken from them, is a great honor and privilege.

My role as Senior Associate in the Superannuation and Life Insurance Team is a challenging but rewarding one. To be able to witness the courage of our clients and to be able to fight for them is a huge motivator and is definitely what keeps me going.

It’s my hope that our team here in Brisbane continues with their great work in really going that extra mile. I promise that we will do everything possible to make sure you are well looked after and able to move on with your life.
