I came to work at Shine Lawyers as a result of the company buying out the Somerville & Co practice in 2010. Having worked in Plaintiff Litigation for many years and joining Shine in 2010, I am excited to be part of a client focused company that gives me the opportunity to make a difference in society.

As Special Counsel with Shine Lawyers Newcastle, I enjoy helping clients achieve what they thought might not be possible. I understand that the legal process to them is often confusing and overwhelming, which is why I like to explain things in an easy to understand manner. I have a reputation for putting my all into what I do and preparing each case thoroughly.

It is my hope that me and my team of personal compensation experts in New South Wales can continue to make a big difference in clients’ lives and get the positive outcomes that they deserve. It really is an honor that they put so much trust and faith in me and I will do everything I can to make sure that faith is repaid.
