Rebecca has helped hundreds of people injured in motor vehicle and workplace accidents to pursue their legal entitlements in and out of court. She always ensures her clients understand the legal process and make informed decisions about their legal rights.

Rebecca’s empathetic values and strong drive to help people in need is what led her to becoming a personal injury lawyer.

“I enjoy assisting people who have been injured in traumatic circumstances to move forward with their lives,” says Rebecca.

“I am highly motivated and passionate about helping my clients to get the best outcome possible, and as quickly as possible, to allow them to move on from their accident.

“It’s my utmost priority that my clients get the compensation they require to provide certainty for their future and for their family’s future.

“I help enable real and positive outcomes that change injured people's lives – whether it be by fighting for compensation, ensuring that their treatment is being funded, or that my clients receive the appropriate assistance to live independent and fulfilling lives after suffering injuries in a transport accident.

“My clients inspire me, particularly when they overcome challenges such as injury to reach their goals. It's a privilege to be able to assist my clients through what can be very challenging times.”
