Nina Smart is a personal injuries lawyer at Maurice Blackburn’s Mildura office. Nina grew up in Mildura and started working at the firm as a legal assistant in 2010. She completed a law degree whilst working full-time and raising a young family. She was admitted to practice in March 2019.

“I’ve always been passionate about helping people injured at work and on the state’s roads to navigate their rights and entitlements under compensation schemes that can seem daunting and confusing.”

Nina has been involved in the trade union movement for most of her life; her father was an organiser with the AWU. Because she believes regional people should not be disadvantaged when seeking justice because of where they live, Nina provides an outreach service to the townships of Swan Hill and Kerang to ensure that people living near those areas can receive legal advice and support. When she is not fighting for the rights and entitlements of her clients, Nina is helping her husband and children run the family farm. She is also heavily involved in her local community, sporting organisations and is passionate about agriculture.
