Practising predominantly in the field of personal injury law, Julia specialises in motor vehicle accident, public liability and medical negligence claims. 

Julia was trained by and continues to work closely with the partners and senior practitioners in the Civil Litigation team, gaining essential skills to aid in complex litigation files and maximise her client’s entitlements to compensation.

For Julia, communication is paramount and her highly regarded ability to communicate in a clear, compassionate and efficient manner has proven invaluable in building relationships with her clients, communicating with the Courts, and negotiating successful outcomes for her clients with her opponents.  

Julia was most recently instructing solicitor in the matter of Crossley v State of South Australia [2020] which saw the District Court award her client more than $854,000.00 in damages after his leg was broken by police in the course of an arrest. The matter was subsequently appealed by the State of South Australia to the Supreme Court, where the original decision of the District Court was upheld. 

An active member of South Australia’s legal community, Julia is also a part of the Editorial Team of the Law Society of South Australia’s Journal, The Bulletin, which sees her advising, assisting, writing for and providing feedback to the Editor.
