I believe in helping others in their time of need, as well as on their road to success. I was admitted as a solicitor in New South Wales in 1998 followed by Queensland shortly thereafter. My career started out in a boutique insolvency firm on the Gold Coast.

However, in 2005 my mother had a stroke, and my parents were faced with having to sell their house. I needed to find a nursing home for my mother and a retirement village for my father. For the first time I understood from a personal perspective how important it is to have your affairs in order. I also realised how daunting the transition from the comfort of your own home to the right seniors accommodation can be. Therefore, shortly after my parents settled into their new lifestyle, I began work at the Seniors Legal and Support Service in Hervey Bay.

My experiences

As part of my work I advised other solicitors, general practitioners and health care providers on the important issues that face the elderly. I have also participated in activities that would change the way we care for our retired community at a government level. I attended QCAT hearings, and provided community education to the public on issues around elder abuse, decision making capacity and enduring powers of attorney.

After more than five years, I wanted to further broaden the scope in which I could provide my help, and so decided to re-enter private practice. However, I do not believe in fancy offices and billing by the minute – just easy to understand legal solutions – and so I decided to start Swift Legal Solutions. So whatever life may throw at you, problems big or small, just give me a call. I’m here to help.
