Stephanie Francis is a personal injury Associate at Maurice Blackburn and regional leader of our Ipswich office. She is admitted to practice in Queensland, and helps people with workers’ compensation, motor vehicle accident and public liability claims.

“I have always had a strong sense of social responsibility, and a desire to improve access to justice for everyone. It’s critical to ensure that people do not simply fall through the cracks because of an absence of quality legal advice or lack of information about their rights,” says Stephanie.

Compassionate and hardworking, Stephanie understands that her clients face many challenges on a daily basis. She strives to provide successful outcomes to legal issues in order to help make her clients' lives easier and assist their road to recovery.

“As a personal injuries lawyer, I often see people whose lives, as well as those of their family, have been changed forever due to injuries sustained in a motor vehicle accident or in a workplace. It is inspiring to watch clients go through the rehabilitation process in order to try and put their lives back together, and I am proud to help them through the process.”

Stephanie is committed to social justice and is active in her local community. As a law undergraduate, she was a student volunteer for the Welfare Rights Centre and the Refugee and Immigration Legal Services (RAILS). She has also tutored students completing their Bachelor of Laws degree in James Cook University’s Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander program.
