Wendy Nixson

Practice Leader - Medical Law


Wendy will take the time to listen, understand your story, and give you the confidence and strength to move forward with your case. 

Medical negligence

Wendy’s dedication to her clients has been a hallmark of her decades of experience. She refuses to allow injustice to go unpunished and has been hailed for her sensitive approach to client care.  

Wendy has spent more than two decades standing up for clients who were injured by negligent health professionals. 

In 2022, she blew the lid off the Mackay Hospital health service scandal in Queensland, after the State government tried to offer compensation in exchange for the silence of mothers left with physical and psychological injuries at the hands of the hospital’s gynaecology and obstetrics department. 

Wendy has been recognised by the prestigious Doyle's Guide seven years in a row and is one of the most fearsome litigators you could hope to have on your side.
