"I believe that it's important for me to take as much of the worry and complication away from my clients as possible so they can focus on recovering."

“Accessing compensation can be complex and confusing – I value providing clarity, a clear plan of action and hopefully some comfort to my clients during what is often the most difficult time in their lives.”
Tamara is a Senior Associate with Shine Lawyers Melbourne, helping clients with Motor Vehicle Accident and Workers Compensation claims. She chose to pursue law as a career due to her passion for working with vulnerable people, whether due to injury or circumstance.
Straightforward communication is key to Tamara, and she knows how important it is for her clients to feel confident in making fully informed choices throughout their claims. Unnecessarily prolonged claims cause added stress for clients, so Tamara does her best to ensure her clients’ claims are progressed efficiently, while maximising the outcome.
Tamara is vocal when it comes to important issues, particularly around road safety. She has presented seminars and co-authored academic pieces around driverless cars and accident compensation. On topics like driver distraction and road quality, she has raised awareness through her expert commentary to media outlets.
In the community, Tamara has volunteered with the Youth Referral and Independent Persons Program (YRIPP), as well as at the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre. She’s also been involved as a prison legal educator and presenter at the Prison Legal Education & Assistance Project.

"Everyone at Shine was super helpful. The whole team is very pleasant and good at what they do. Very professional. Tamara and Pru were excellent and won a case that in the beginning I thought could not be won."
"I had a car accident & employed Shine Lawyers Dandenong to act for me with a claim against TAC. I would just like to say how very happy I was with their professional services given to me. I would like to thank Tamara and all my team for getting me a good outcome and for persisting with this case. I could never have done this without them. I’m forever grateful for how hard you all worked."
