Tamara Wright is a work injuries and road accident Associate in Maurice Blackburn’s Dandenong office. She helps people in the Greater Dandenong area with WorkCover and TAC compensation claims.
Tamara is driven and energised by the opportunity to assist people in our community who need a hand and someone to stand with them. She has strong communication skills and pays attention to detail. Tamara is also skilled in clearly and concisely explaining complicated legal concepts in everyday language.
“We all need someone to be on our side in times of need. When those times come for my clients, I’m always ready to fight hard for them,” says Tamara.
“I am lucky to have the opportunity to assist my clients during an important time of transition in their lives. Accessing compensation can involve complex and confusing steps and I enjoy being able to provide clarity and a clear plan of action that can provide some level of comfort to my clients.
“I believe that it is important for me to be able to take as much of the worry and complication out of the hands of my clients as possible so that they can focus on recovering. I often find that there are many benefits that injured people do not know about that can ease some of their burdens.
“The strength and courage of my clients is inspiring. There is nothing as rewarding as seeing the emotion, relief and peace that comes over a client’s face when I’ve fought hard for them and achieved a great result.”
Tamara has been working in the legal industry since 2011. In addition to her work at Maurice Blackburn, Tamara has volunteered at a number of community organisations with a focus on human rights, refugees and young people’s legal rights. She holds a Bachelor of Laws with First Class Honours and a Bachelor of Commerce from Monash University and is a High Distinction Student in the Golden Key International Honour Society.
