Jed McNamara is a highly experienced Special Counsel in Maurice Blackburn’s Maroochydore office on the Sunshine Coast. Jed holds a Bachelor of Laws and has been practicing law since 1993.

Practice Area

Childhood abuse



Jed is the Queensland Practice Group Leader of the firm’s national sexual, physical and institutional abuse compensation team, bringing claims for those who were subjected to abuse within organisations including churches, church-and state-run institutions, public and private schools, youth and sporting clubs, foster homes, reformatory schools and prisons. Jed is specially trained in trauma informed practice which ensures he works with clients to access justice in a way that recognises the complex trauma they have suffered.

Jed is a passionate advocate for survivors of abuse seeking compensation from at-fault institutions and perpetrators.

“Monetary compensation can never and will never erase the wrongs and hurt of the past. It does bring with it a form of closure. It is a direct acknowledgment also of the hurt and pain caused by those past wrongs. It goes some way to ensuring a more comfortable future.”

“Maurice Blackburn is the leading firm in this area. I’m proud of the work we do and the way we do it.”
