Zoe is a class actions lawyer in Maurice Blackburn's Brisbane office. She is currently working on the Queensland floods class action.
Zoe is a dedicated, diligent and compassionate lawyer driven by a commitment to social justice and equality under the law. She graduated with Honours in Laws and with Distinction in her Bachelor of Behavioural Science (Psychology) degree, and was admitted to practice law in 2015.
Zoe joined the firm as a legal assistant in employment and industrial law while completing her studies, and also undertook legal training in compensation law.
“I have a genuine passion for social justice and am dedicated to achieving the best result for my clients. I am proud to work in an area that enables our clients to access justice in very complex areas of litigation where it would otherwise be impractical to do so individually,” says Zoe.
Zoe is a dedicated and hardworking professional who takes a profound interest in the case at hand. Her decision to take a dual degree in law and behavioural science is based in her desire to further empathise with and understand the position of her clients, so she can achieve the best possible result for each client.
“I find that I am continually inspired by my clients. Despite the challenges they have been through, they remain resilient. I feel privileged to be a part of a team that makes a difference in their lives and helps them to achieve a fair result.
“It is very rewarding knowing that I can make a genuine difference in people’s lives and at the same time improve access to justice for the community as a whole. Class actions provide a mechanism of accountability and forces positive changes in the systems of powerful corporate and governmental wrongdoers to ensure that the same event cannot occur again.”
