Jed McNamara is a highly experienced personal injuries compensation Associate in Maurice Blackburn’s Maroochydore office on the Sunshine Coast. He also sees clients in our visiting office in Gympie.

Jed helps clients with a range of compensation claims. He also a senior member of the firm’s national sexual and institutional compensation team and has a particular interest in bringing claims for the survivors of childhood sexual abuse. Jed is specially trained in trauma informed practice which ensures he works with clients to access justice in a way that recognises the complex trauma they have suffered.

Jed holds a Bachelor of Laws and has been practicing in personal injury compensation law for more than 20 years but he describes himself as “not your typical lawyer; I try not to take life too seriously”.

“I find it rewarding to know I’ve been able to make a difference, especially when I’m fighting for the ‘small guy’ against insurance companies and the like,” says Jed.

“People come to me when their lives have been profoundly changed for the worse. These changes often impact their immediate family and other friends, too.

“I know all my clients would rather not be injured in the first place, and it’s frustrating that they can’t turn back time.

“My job is to help them get back on track and take control of their lives again, so they can set a new path for their future.”
