Jessica King

Passionate about making a difference to people’s lives, Jessica King has extensive experience in personal injury law obtained across three jurisdictions.

This experience has highlighted to Jessica just how confusing personal injury law can be for clients who are not familiar with the Victorian compensation system.

She is therefore committed to ensuring each client has a clear understanding of their rights in a language they can relate to.

Jessica also has a keen interest in aviation law and helping clients who have been injured during an airline flight.
