Sarah has over 25 years of experience representing injured people in compensation claims both in the UK and in Queensland and has the expertise to deal with the most complex and serious of cases. She has particular expertise in brain injuries and catastrophic injuries and has negotiated many multi-million dollar settlements, including several over $10 million.

Sarah provides comprehensive and compassionate advice and is an excellent negotiator. She prides herself on achieving outstanding results for clients, particularly in difficult and complex cases.

“It’s a privilege to represent injured clients to the best of my ability and to guide them through the legal and medical complexities of their cases. I don’t shy away from a fight but I am also a good negotiator and I find that combination helps to achieve good results,” says Sarah.

Sarah is part of our complex litigation team – a specialised team of legal experts who have decades of experience supporting seriously injured clients and their families.

Sarah also enjoys using her experience to assist other lawyers and to advocate for changes in the law when it is needed. She is a particular advocate for the rights of women and was awarded an Outstanding Achievement Award by the Queensland Law Society in 2015 for her contributions to the legal profession and the community, particularly in relation to women’s rights.

Sarah has spoken at several professional conferences on topics such as expedited claims for shortened life expectancy, extensions of the limitation period, expert reports and equity in the legal profession.

When not working Sarah enjoys spending time with her husband and teenage daughters, walking and travel.
