Michael Lau is a Senior Solicitor in our Abuse Law department. As part of the Abuse Law team, Michael provides legal advice to survivors of abuse as well as acting as a voice for clients.  

The resilience and strength of my clients, who have overcome insurmountable obstacles in their search for justice, inspires me.

Michael assisted in the landmark historical sexual abuse case MC v Morris, in which the plaintiff was awarded a record $3.5 million dollars in compensation. In addition to his knowledge of abuse law, Michael has practised across personal injury and commercial litigation.     Michael studied law and arts at the University of Sydney, graduating in 2016. He was admitted as a lawyer the following year. He is fluent in Cantonese.  

The highlight of my role is advising clients throughout the process of their claim and seeing their satisfaction when they receive a favourable outcome knowing they can finally move on.
