Sexual And Institutional Abuse, Personal Injury
Anna is an experienced personal injury lawyer with more than 10 years of personal injury experience. She is passionate about obtaining fair and commensurate compensation for injured and abused clients. She has experience in Abuse law compensation, WorkCover, TAC claims, injury in public places and medical negligence.
Anna welcomes the opportunity to help vulnerable clients navigate the injury compensation process. Changes to Victorian legislation in recent years have made it easier for survivors of child and institutional abuse to seek and secure compensation with the guidance of an experienced lawyer. Anna finds it particularly rewarding to assist clients who have suffered institutional and sexual abuse and have in the past been forgotten.
Anna draws on her multicultural background and experiences to better understand vulnerable clients to optimise claim outcomes. This positively impacts her practise when focusing on sensitive and complex sexual and institutional abuse matters. Clients appreciate Anna’s commitment to empathetic client engagement, building strong relationships with relevant stakeholders, and strong advocacy.
Admitted as an Australian Lawyer in March 2009, Anna has private practice experience as a Plaintiff Lawyer and has also worked as in-house Defence Counsel in a large corporate entity.
Anna is fluent in Bahasa Malaysia and speaks Malayalam, as she has Indian origins and was brought up in Malaysia. Having started her practise in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, Anna settled in Australia in 1995 and has also lived, worked and studied in the UK and the US.
Her qualifications include: LLB (Hons) Kings College, University of London; Bar Finals (Lincoln’s Inn) - London UK; and MBA Melbourne Business School, University of Melbourne.
Anna also thoroughly enjoys being the mother of twins, international travel, cooking, music and singing.
