Practice Group Leader
Julie conducts Compensation law matters for individuals, specialising in Medical Negligence claims. Prior to commencing with Stacks in 1993, she worked in a Canberra law firm. A knowledgeable and respected medical negligence solicitor, Julie is a member of the NSW Law Society and NSW Law Society Accredited Specialist in Personal Injury. She has been practising law for 37 years.
Julie has run a wide variety of medical negligence and dental negligence cases. These range from cases for babies who are catastrophically injured as a result of bad care by medical staff at the time of their birth, through to matters involving a delay in diagnosis and treatment resulting in a worse outcome, as well as injuries sustained in hospital (often due to underfunding and understaffing), and mistakes made during operative procedures.
In all these medical negligence matters Julie displays a warm and empathetic approach towards her clients, who often describe her as a “straight shooter”. She is a very good communicator and has the ability to make quite complex legal issues easily understood.
As the mother of four children and with wide experience in the practice of law, Julie brings maturity to the task. She understands how stressful bringing a personal injury claim can be, and strives to make it as easy, and stress free as possible. This quality is of great value in all areas of practice, and none more so than in Medical Negligence claims.
