I commenced employment with the firm as a law clerk in 1998 and was admitted in 2001. I initially worked with the Plaintiff Personal Injury team before developing and eventually becoming the head of the Estate Law practice. I became a Principal in 2006. Throughout my time with McInnes Wilson Lawyers, I have enjoyed watching the firm grow from strength to strength. The firm offers excellent learning and clerkship opportunities, including a graduate program, internal mentoring program and fortnightly CLE workshops.
