Genna Upson is an Associate at Maurice Blackburn’s Greensborough office who specialises in NDIS matters and holding the NDIA to account.
“I believe that to be a successful disability advocate it is essential to first fully understand the individual needs and preferences of the person I am assisting. I use my detailed knowledge and experience of the NDIS to strive for outcomes that meet those needs.”
Genna joined Maurice Blackburn in 2011 where she practiced in motor vehicle accident injury claims for several years. She returned to the firm in 2020 after spending a number of years working in the mental health sector in a role that included disability advocacy for NDIS participants. She has both personal and professional experience in the NDIS field and knows how challenging and overwhelming navigating the scheme can be for participants and those that care for them. That experience drives her to maximise the NDIS supports available to her clients. She is committed to promoting and protecting the rights of people with disability.
