Craig Parrish is a superannuation and insurance Associate practising in Maurice Blackburn’s Melbourne office.

Craig graduated from La Trobe University in 2010 with a Bachelor of Laws(Hons) and Bachelor of Psychological Science. Craig joined Maurice Blackburn in 2011, and spent the first five years of legal practice representing injured workers in claims for statutory and common law compensation under the Victorian WorkCover scheme.

Craig now helps people who are unable to work due to an injury or illness by assisting them in challenging the rejection of their superannuation and insurance claims. He is passionate about getting a fair outcome for his clients by pursuing all possible legal entitlements, while providing clear and honest advice at all stages throughout the process.

“I was attracted to practicing law because I knew it would enable me to advocate on behalf of those who really needed it; those who had been poorly treated and now find themselves caught up in a complicated scheme, and to actually make a tangible difference to their lives,” says Craig.

“The most rewarding aspect of working in this area of law is knowing that my clients are placing their trust in me as I help them to understand and navigate the complex legal system towards the best possible outcome.”

Craig has previously volunteered at the Mental Health Legal Centre, the Whittlesea Community Legal Centre, the Diamond Valley Legal Service and Victoria Legal Aid.

He is also a passionate supporter of the Melbourne Football Club.
