Biography

I am the Director of Joplin Lawyers. I practice family law predominantly, and my firm handles a wide range of matters, from criminal to conveyance. I am a strong and vocal advocate for victims of domestic violence. After a decade of working in the tourism and marketing professions, I enrolled in James Cook University where I earned a law degree and graduated in 2007. I became a lawyer because I believes that the law is the most effective and powerful tool society possesses. I have a strong desire to assist people in need and am well equipped to do this from my position as lawyer and firm director. I am an active and engaged member of my local community and the greater hunter valley region. I am extremely passionate about my profession and take great pride in my firm's accomplishments and reputation. I believe that education on all parameters of domestic violence is crucial to eliminating its pervasive and destructive presence in our communities. I will be using my Fellowship to learn more about domestic violence programs focusing on perpetrators.
