Simon sees it as an honour and a great privilege to be able to use his skills and expertise in legal and management functions to help get the best outcomes for our clients.
Simon started with Shine Lawyers as an articled clerk in 1988, back when the firm was just a small country practice operating in Toowoomba, Queensland. Right from the beginning, he believed in the firm’s capability to provide justice to everyday Australians who had been wronged.
Having spent over 30 years at Shine Lawyers helping an ever-increasing number of clients nationwide, Simon feels fortunate to have been involved in many areas of the business and to have undertaken a variety of roles as the firm continued to grow. Throughout this time, and in his current role as Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, he can honestly say that his passion for helping clients to seek justice has never wavered.
Simon is a former National President of the Australian Lawyers Alliance (ALA), chaired the ALA's National Workers Compensation Special Interest Group and sits on the Board of Governors of the American Association of Justice.
Simon has particular expertise in and is an acknowledged leader in workers' compensation and is a Queensland Law Society Accredited Specialist in personal injury law. He has given evidence at numerous government inquiries, has assisted in drafting legislation and is a regular speaker at national and state conferences.
Simon is excited to be responsible for the strategic and operational objectives at Shine Lawyers and looks forward to seeing our company reach out globally and Right Wrongs wherever and whenever they occur.
