- successful multi-party negotiations involving local and state government departments
- issuing penalty infringements to companies for breaches of consumer laws
- successful civil proceedings in the Federal Court of Australia regarding misconduct by companies providing financial products to vulnerable consumers, and

Jessica joined our class actions team because she is passionate about achieving justice for everyday Australians.
“I have a desire to ensure corporations abide by the law. I enjoy achieving tangible outcomes for people affected by corporate wrongdoing,” says Jessica.
“My varied legal background enables me to comprehensively represent my clients, because I bring experience to the table from regulatory environments as well as private practice. “
“I am driven by the many and varied clients and groups I have acted for, and an inherent sense that fairness should not be bought, but fought for.”
Jessica also places a high value on physical and mental health, and has been an accredited yoga teacher since 2013.
Jessica is currently on parental leave.
