Jaz Goddard is an experienced work injury compensation Senior Associate in Maurice Blackburn’s Geelong office. She is a Law Institute of Victoria personal injury accredited specialist who helps clients throughout Greater Geelong and rural Victoria with WorkCover claims.
Jaz holds Bachelor of Arts and a Masters in Law. She was admitted to practice in 2010, and has helped hundreds of clients successfully access all their compensation rights and entitlements.
“I’m a compassionate people-person, with a genuine interest in who my clients are and how I can make their experience of the legal system a little better or easier,” says Jaz.
“For example, I represented a client who had a significant claim but hadn’t pursued it because he was terrified of the WorkCover system. He came to see me on a minor matter but was so pleased to be wrong about lawyers that he decided to pursue his WorkCover matter, and to date it remains the best result financially and emotionally I have ever obtained. I called him a year later to see how he was and he still thought that walking through my door changed his life forever!
“The most rewarding part of my work is seeing my clients’ faces after we speak and they understand so much more about their claim and feel like they have the tools and resources they need to move forward with their claims, their injuries, and their lives.
Jaz is very proud to live and work in in her adopted hometown of Geelong.
