“The legal processes can be complex and overwhelming for many individuals to navigate, particularly while also living with life-changing injuries sustained through no fault of their own. I work hard to ensure that clients are well supported when accessing their entitlement to compensation. I am driven to achieve positive outcomes for my clients and consider it a privilege to be able to assist them through what is often a very challenging time in their lives.”

Paula assists clients with claims relating to delayed diagnosis and treatment, surgical errors, birth trauma, as well as psychological injuries resulting from the loss of a loved one due to negligent medical treatment.
