Based in Sydney, Alex is an experienced personal injury claims lawyer who helps clients that have been injured while on the road, while at work or in a public place to seek the compensation they deserve.
Within this area of law, Alex has a particular focus on catastrophic injury claims, CTP claims and federal jurisdiction issues.
Alex’s life goal is to play a part in making the world a better place:
“I believe that by actively listening to my clients’ needs and obtaining them excellent results as quickly as possible, I am changing their lives and helping to make the world a better place for them.”
Alex is an Accredited Specialist in Personal Injury Law with over 6 years of experience and a proven track record of excellent compensation results for his clients. He constantly strives to find ways of improving legal processes and drive changes to legislation to ensure the best possible outcomes for his clients.
This was evidenced by Alex’s leading role in the landmark case Ritchie v Nominal Defendant which involved a complex dispute around jurisdiction of the Personal Injury Commission in a case bought by an interstate resident (Alex’s client). Alex was instrumental in securing the outcome (that the District Court retains jurisdiction rather than the Personal Injury Commission) which clarifies the claims process for future claimants.
Alex is passionate about equal access to justice for everyone; specifically ensuring that language is not a barrier to accessing legal advice. Fluent in Portuguese as well as a moderate speaking level of Spanish, Alex has helped numerous clients who don’t speak English to navigate the legal system by ensuring they understand their rights and giving them a voice.
