Heather joined the Commins Hendriks team in 2017 as a senior litigator to open the new Canberra Office. She is a leading ACT based litigator with extensive experience in personal injury, commercial and property development litigation.
She has been lucky enough to have had a very diverse career working with both individuals and large corporate organisations.
Heather's professional career began as a plaintiff litigation lawyer in Darwin in 2003, predominantly in the area of personal injuries, before being recruited by Minter Ellison Lawyers as a commercial litigant.
In 2009, she relocated to Canberra to take up a senior litigation role with Bradley Allen Lawyers, before moving to Porter Lawyers, where she acted principally for clients in the difficult area of institutional child sexual abuse claims.
Heather's passion for the law, her compassion for clients and her determination to get the best outcome possible for them makes her an exceptional addition to our team.
