Experience
 

Admitted to practice in 2010, Jade gained broad litigation experience across the breadth of the Victorian jurisdiction while working as an in-house litigator at the Transport Accident Commission. Having run cases from issue to verdict, including multiple jury trials, Jade is familiar with the processes and procedures of litigation, and the unique sensitives and complexities that accompany government litigation. 

Jade has experience managing cases that involve multiple government agencies at State and local level, corporate third parties and self-represented litigants. Jade believes in developing a strategic approach to litigation, focusing on an overall objective that pays regards to broader business interests, while complying with model litigant obligations.

A proponent for the transition to paperless litigation, Jade was involved in the first fully- electronic serious injury hearing in the County Court in 2017.
