Michaela Bartonkova is an enthusiastic and approachable Senior Associate at Maurice Blackburn. She has almost a decade of legal experience and is a Senior Associate who manages our Strathpine office.

“I became a lawyer to give a voice to workers and seek just compensation. I enjoy fighting for the underdog and getting fair outcomes for clients.”

Michaela has significant skills in civil litigation and dispute resolution.

“Despite the constant threat by politicians to change the compensation laws in Queensland, I am inspired to achieve fair and just outcomes for my clients.”

“I have a thorough understanding of my clients' issues. It’s important that people can deal with their lawyer face-to-face. And while I live locally, I also have the backup and support of our lawyers in Queensland and throughout Australia, so it’s a win-win for clients.”

Michaela joined Maurice Blackburn in 2005 and established our Ipswich office in 2011. She moved to our Strathpine office in 2014.
