I am a lawyer specialising in civil liability litigation (medical litigation and intentional torts) with Carroll & O'Dea Lawyers. My medical law practice includes matters arising from birth trauma, brain injury, delayed cancer diagnosis and wrongful birth. My intentional tort practice includes institutional child sexual abuse matters.
I also hold accreditation as a Mediator through the Law Society of New South Wales.
In addition to my private practice, I have adjunct roles at Western Sydney University (Law + Medical schools), Queensland University of Technology (Australian Centre for Health Law Research) and the University of Melbourne (Melbourne Law Masters). I am also a Fellow of the Australian Academy of Law.
With Tina Cockburn, Janine McIlwraith, Ruanne Brell and Benjamin Madden, I am a co-author of four books:
- Institutional abuse of children: Legal remedies and redress in Australia (Lexis Nexis)
- Australian Medical Liability, 4th edition (Lexis Nexis)
- Health Care & the Law, 6th edition (Thomson Reuters)
- The National Disability Scheme Handbook (Lexis Nexis)
