I was admitted as a solicitor in Australia in 2000 and in England and Wales in 2006.
I joined the Irwin Mitchell International Travel Litigation Group in 2004.
I specialise in personal injury claims involving a foreign element. This might include representing individuals who have sustained injuries abroad, on board planes or ships, or foreign nationals involved in accidents in the UK. I act on behalf of clients pursuing claims in this country as well as a vast array of other jurisdictions around the world. I have experience in acting for both claimants and defendants.
What Inspired You To Get Into Law?
As a child I experienced firsthand the litigation process when a family member suffered an unfortunate accident. This sparked an interest in the law and fostered a desire to help others in similar situations.
What Is The Most Rewarding Aspect Of Your Role?
I get a real buzz out of achieving good results for clients. It is particularly satisfying when you can make a real difference to someone's life.
What Do You Like About Working At Irwin Mitchell?
Working with a good team of people and resources.
What Do You Do Away From The Office?
Sport dominates my life away from the office. Rugby, cricket, football, Australian Rules, you name it, I'll follow it! I like to participate as well and keep very busy playing touch rugby and netball.
I also enjoy socialising and travelling.
