Experienced, trustworthy, empathetic and tactful – my goal is to deeply understand my clients’ industries, processes, priorities and people. From that foundation, I offer clear-sighted legal advice and tailored solutions.

I support my clients to resolve legal disputes on appropriate terms whilst preserving their reputations and the relationships important to their continued success.

I have acted for:

  • Queensland’s primary workers’ compensation insurer and hundreds of insured employers;
  • Self-insured employers;
  • Corporations managing under-deductible property and injury disputes, including public liability claims;
  • Healthcare, educational and religious institutions;
  • Law enforcement, emergency services and custodial correction entities;
  • Individual professionals faced with civil or disciplinary action;
  • Businesses faced with workplace health and safety investigations and prosecutions;
  • General and professional indemnity insurers and their insureds; and
  • Compulsory third-party motor accident insurers.

I have nearly twenty years’ experience managing psychiatric injury and bullying claims in addition to significant recent experience managing historical institutional abuse claims.

I am a dedicated supervisor and mentor of other lawyers, am a member of a committee responsible for dental regulation in Queensland and for many years have volunteered with community legal services.
