Connie Smith is a Superannuation and Insurance Litigation Lawyer based in Maurice Blackburn’s Sydney office. She has worked in the Superannuation and Insurance team since 2019 and during this time has received exposure to a wide range of claims, including Total and Permanent Disablement, Income Protection, Death Benefits, Home & Contents, and Business Interruption insurance claims.

“I feel extremely privileged to be provided the opportunity to assist our clients to access their legal rights and entitlements owed to them. Every day I’m driven by the courage our clients show day in and day out, and the fight they bring with them. I never lose sight of the fact someone is placing their trust in my hands to guide them through a complex legal system.”

When deciding to practice law, the most significant driving factor for Connie was having the opportunity to give a voice to those in a legal system who may otherwise go unheard. She strongly values the right individuals have to access to justice, and has a particular interest in the intersection between mental health and the law.
