Solicitor

LLB, GDLP, BA

Tiffany has worked as a solicitor in a number of jurisdictions – Western Australia (Perth), Queensland (Brisbane) and South Australia. She is an extremely experienced solicitor, having worked for over 25 years representing injured persons and having handled some of the most complex and challenging cases: birth injuries, brain and spinal injuries and amputation injuries.

Tiffany appreciates that litigation can be stressful and the processes sometimes difficult for people to understand. She develops empathetic and trusting relationship with her clients and is committed to ensuring that they receive payment of fair compensation.

She enjoys challenging cases, specialising in medical negligence claims. Working in Perth enabled her to handle many serious mining accident claims. She also has extensive experience in motor vehicle accident, public liability, superannuation and workers compensation claims.

When she is not working, Tiffany is a keen overseas traveller, loves photography, perfecting her Spanish language skills, gardening and playing with her chocolate Labrador, Mocha.
