Lisa joined Henry Carus + Associates in June 2019 where she came to us initially as a PLT intern via Leo Cussen. From there we retained Lisa as a Legal Assistant where she worked on a variety of TAC, WorkCover and Public Liability matters in a mixture of administration and paralegal functions.

Prior to coming to us Lisa completed a Bachelor of Science at The University of Melbourne and a Bachelor of Laws at La Trobe University. Lisa has always been passionate about helping others and this is what inspired her to start her legal career in personal injury law.

Lisa was admitted as a lawyer in September 2019 and now works in this capacity at our firm under the supervision of our Principal, Henry Carus and mentorship of Senior Associate, Dino Beslagic.

Lisa prides herself in her ability to think practically and offer compassion when providing assistance to clients during difficult times.
