Emily Forbes is an abuse lawyer based in our Melbourne office. Emily was admitted to practice in 2020 and joined our abuse team in the same year.

Emily is a passionate advocate for her clients and brings a trauma-informed and empathetic approach to her work. She is committed to removing barriers survivors of abuse face when bringing civil claims.

LLB (Hons), BIntIst, GDLP

Emily graduated from Deakin University with a Bachelor of Laws (First Class Honours) and Bachelor of International Studies. Emily is currently studying a Master of Laws at the University of Melbourne. Part of her studies have focused on institutional abuse law.

“For far too long at-fault institutions have held the balance of power in abuse claims and my work focuses on rewriting that narrative. Through my work, I help my clients tell their story and achieve meaningful compensation to move forward with their lives,” says Emily.
