From his first role in a large CBD law firm, Angus has worked in the areas of personal injury and workers compensation. Today his personal injury clients include those claiming as a result of injuries through medical negligence and motor accidents. Working with his clients following trauma and accidents, Angus ensures they understand the legal issues; their entitlements and that they are involved in the claims and settlement process, at every stage.
As an experienced court advocate, Angus also acts in a variety of matters including criminal proceedings, building disputes, insurance disputes, estate litigation and general litigation. He regularly appears in the Local, District and Supreme Courts, Family Courts, the Workers Compensation Commission and the Motor Accident Authority Claims Assessment and Resolution Service.
'The justice system as a whole is in place to protect the community's civil liberties and rights and it is the solicitors who champion and enforce these freedoms. This system requires a balance between the different parties and interests and solicitors play a vital role in ensuring this balance continues,' says Angus.
