Get to know Joanne

I’m Joanne, a Senior Associate in the Medical Negligence team. I have worked within the legal profession for over 20 years: in both Australia and the UK, as an administrator and a lawyer.

Since 2010, I have worked exclusively in Medical Negligence. I began as an administrator, before pursuing a law degree. I was admitted as a lawyer in 2016, and returned to university in 2017, undertaking Honours with a particular focus on Medical Negligence legislation in Queensland.

I understand that Medical Negligence claims are complex and challenging, with no two cases being the same. Clients often come to me after a traumatic, life-changing event. I approach all cases with empathy, compassion and understanding, personally guiding each client through their claim process in plain English.

My approach to claims is client-focused, with an aim to turn a negative experience into a positive outcome. I am invested in every case that my team and I investigate, and always ensure that my clients receive the best possible advice, experience, and result.
