Karmilla Chenia is a compensation lawyer in our Strathpine office. Karmilla was drawn to practice in this area by her desire to fight against injustice and make a real difference in people's lives. She is passionate about securing positive outcomes for those who have suffered harm through no fault of their own.

"Navigating the legal system can be overwhelming for many and I am motivated to help my clients through this. It’s rewarding to use my skills to advocate on the behalf of those most vulnerable. Seeing the impact we can have on a client's life, in helping them get back on track, is a driving factor for me in my work. It always comes back to my clients and their stories – and how we can use the law to make a real difference in their lives."

Karmilla spent her traineeship year in regional Townsville, where she is now based as a lawyer. Her experience in a regional setting has given her an insight into the unique barriers to justice that regional Queenslanders experience. She is committed to helping all clients access justice – regardless of their financial, social or geographic status.
