Biography

I became a lawyer because I love solving problems and talking to people.

I was admitted to practise as a lawyer in 1993 and have since worked across Queensland in private practice, local government, state government and statutory authorities.

As an experienced and skilled workplace lawyer I can assist with any employment, work health and safety, workers compensation, industrial relations and discrimination issues you have.

I am passionate about assisting employers manage their workforce in a way that drives business success. I like to partner with clients ensuring I know and understand their business and priorities.

By providing practical and strategic advice focused on best achieving the desired outcome whilst minimising the risks, I get results.

Human capital is a crucial part of any business and needs to be carefully managed. I can assist with all things workplace from navigating the minefield of negotiating enterprise agreements, managing underperformance, award interpretation, workers compensation claims, investigating complaints and minimising your work health and safety risks.

I look forward to assisting you resolve your workplace issues and implement sound frameworks and practices to move your workforce forward.
