Simone Ellis is an experienced workplace injury Associate in Maurice Blackburn’s Greensborough office. She assists people in the northern suburbs with WorkCover compensation claims.
Joining the firm in 2010, whilst studying law at La Trobe University, Simone worked in our Superannuation and Insurance compensation department before relocating to our Wangaratta office in 2014 to commence her traineeship working in Personal Injury compensation. Simone was admitted to practice in 2015 where she worked as a Lawyer in our Geelong office before relocating to our Greensborough office in 2021.
Simone is passionate about fighting for the rights of injured workers. She is a determined lawyer that takes the time to explain the complex WorkCover system to her clients, to not only educate them and build their confidence navigating the system, but to also alleviate unnecessary stress allowing them to focus solely on what is most important – their recovery.
“Every day I am motivated by the strength of my clients, this makes me determined to facilitate and achieve the best outcome for them. I pride myself on providing support and guidance in what is, most certainly, the most difficult time in their lives”
In her spare time, Simone enjoys camping with her family, dancing to the Wiggles with her son and snuggling with her dog Judge.
