An approachable and hard-working lawyer who is dedicated to her clients, Leah works closely with sufferers of asbestos-related diseases and their families in order to obtain compensation.

Leah joined Maurice Blackburn as a trainee lawyer in 2014, and was admitted to practice in 2015. She holds a Masters in Laws (Juris Doctor) and a Bachelor of Arts with majors in Indonesian and International Studies from Monash University.

“I am proud of Maurice Blackburn’s commitment to excellence and delivering assistance to people who are in need,” says Leah.

“The asbestos diseases department is able to provide some financial assurance for clients suffering from devastating asbestos-related diseases, and their families. I was drawn to the department because of the tangible help that can be provided, usually in a relatively short period of time.”

Leah is fluent in Bahasa Indonesia as well as English, and she finds great reward in developing relationships with diverse clients, as well as being given the opportunity to understand a small part of her client’s lives and their stories.

“I am inspired by the people that I am able to assist. Facing an asbestos-related disease is devastating for our clients and their families. To be able to provide meaningful assistance to that person during a very difficult time is enormously fulfilling.”
