I began at DeRusha Law Firm as an LPP candidate completing my work experience practicum, and continued with the Firm as Barrister & Solicitor after being Called to the Bar June 2022.
I practice in a variety of areas of law, including: criminal law, family law, civil litigation, estate law and small claims court. I have a client-focused approach and find it very rewarding to help others during difficult times.
Outside of my legal career, I have several years of customer service experience.
On my downtime, I enjoy staying active, reading and solving puzzles (jigsaw, sudoku and crosswords), travelling to new places, and indulging in the occasional Netflix binge.
