Bachelor of Laws, Graduate Diploma of Legal Practice, Graduate Diploma in Economics.
CAREER TO DATE:
I was admitted to practice in 2007 in South Australia, while working for a small Adelaide firm focused on high-volume debt recovery. The nature of the work meant that I was able to appear in Court on contested matters several times per week since prior to my admission.
Since 2008 I have worked at Gall Standfield & Smith, focusing primarily on commercial litigation and debt recovery, but also practicing in other areas including general commercial, employment law (for both employers and employees) and criminal/traffic law.
Commercial litigation, employment law, criminal law.
MEMBERSHIP TO PROFESSIONAL ASSOCIATIONS AND / OR COMMUNITY GROUPS:
Queensland Law Society
Brisbane Racing Club
MOST REWARDING EXPERIENCE AT WORK:
Anytime I am able to get a good result for a client, particularly a conclusively good result in a litigation mater; that is always very satisfying.
THE BEST PIECE OF ADVICE I’VE BEEN GIVEN:
Trust your own judgment and be careful about blindly accepting the advice of others.
AFTER HOURS I LIKE TO:
Go to the gym, walk the dog, cook and otherwise be a homebody.
WHAT I WOULD BE DOING IF I WASN’T A LAWYER…
Perhaps a political journalist, or doing something in economics.
