"As a lawyer, I get to be a part of something bigger than myself, and it is my job to make sure my clients feel heard, appreciated and as supported as possible throughout their legal journey.”

Abuse law

“Witnessing the difference abuse law claims can make in our clients’ lives and how much it means to them to have a voice and to have someone believe and fight for them is very powerful.”

After growing up in a country where she was surrounded by injustice and the feeling of helplessness, Rushka was inspired to become a lawyer to help people.

Based in the Shine Lawyers Brisbane office, Rushka is a Solicitor within our Abuse Law Department who is driven to secure the acknowledgement, restitution and justice that survivors of abuse deserve.

Rushka and our team of dedicated Abuse Law experts represent survivors of sexual abuse all across Australia and overseas in claims against government institutions, schools, sporting clubs and churches.

She treats each client with empathy and compassion; understanding that many have experienced extreme hardships as a result of the lifelong injury that has been inflicted upon them and that because of this injury, her clients have not always been heard, acknowledged or understood by others.

Prior to completing her studies, Rushka worked as a Disability Support Worker, helping clients who had mental and physical disabilities.
