Amy Johnstone is a Senior Associate in Maurice Blackburn’s medical negligence department in Melbourne.

Practice Area
Medical injury

BSW, MSocSci, JD

Amy graduated with a Bachelor Degree in Social Work in 2004, and went on to attain her Masters of Social Science (Policy and Human Services) in 2007, before completing her Juris Doctor in 2012.

Since joining Maurice Blackburn, Amy has worked principally with clients who have suffered life-changing injuries, including birth trauma, delayed diagnosis and surgical error. She finds it particularly rewarding to engage with her clients throughout their entire claim and assist them in receiving their lawful entitlements and compensation, and her empathetic social work approach is often useful for her clients.

“Working as a social worker before completing my law degree, I knew I wanted to practice law in an area that would allow me to make a difference,” says Amy.

“I had long been a follower of the work of Maurice Blackburn Lawyers and understood that the firm was committed to justice and supporting disadvantaged communities.

“I am passionate about providing clear, practical legal advice and assisting clients to navigating the legal process to obtain compensation.”

In addition to her work with clients, Amy actively supports women’s rights.
