Denise’s legal career began in 1987 and after Articles of Clerkship was admitted as a solicitor in 1989. For nearly 30 years, Denise has enjoyed a legal career covering diverse areas, all including a commitment to looking after the interests of the individual client. Those areas have included criminal law, negligence and damages, compensation and business law.

Denise’s early career was interspersed with family responsibilities, but with those responsibilities now largely fulfilled, Denise is able to devote more time to her clients.

As Team Leader here at QLD Law Group, Denise ensures her clients are provided with the highest quality legal representation, and that claims are handled in a timely and efficient manner, tailored to suit individual circumstances.

Outside work hours, Denise enjoys her alpaca farm, a ‘garden to table’ lifestyle and sharing her fresh produce with family and friends.
