Class actions



Jarrah has worked on a number of Maurice Blackburn’s successful class actions and social justice cases that have now concluded including:

Before becoming a lawyer, Jarrah worked in the community sector and gained a deep appreciation of the structural causes of inequality in Australia. She is passionate about fighting for just outcomes for her clients and appreciates the capacity of such outcomes to achieve lasting change in the broader community.

“Our clients and their family members have suffered through no fault of their own. Our job is to hold wrong-doers accountable for their actions and take some of the burden off our clients through paying compensation,” says Jarrah.

An energetic and empathic lawyer, Jarrah relishes the intellectual challenge of working in diverse areas of law, together with the sheer scale of the task of representing dozens to thousands of clients against multiple parties. Her capacity to see the big picture while paying close attention to details is a defining feature of her work. Jarrah particularly enjoys working closely with clients to ensure they understand and are comfortable with all aspects of their cases.
