Juliana Nikolovski - a Campbelltown, NSW lawyer

Gerard Malouf & Partners

Qualifications: B Laws/B Communication (Journalism); Graduate Diploma in Legal Practice
Post admission experience: 3 years

My first recollection of having wanted to be a lawyer was when I was approximately 6 years old. I was in Grade 2 and we were having “show and tell”. When asked to comment on what I call my “stick drawings”, I had replied that my artwork represented that “when I grow up I want to be a lawyer and have a red Ford Capri convertible” (the car which was all the rage at the time).

I guess I have not changed much since then. I am still as determined as ever. My main focus is achieving justice for my clients.

Following University, I commenced work with a Personal Injury Defendant law firm, with Insurance Companies as my clients. I remained in that role for a year and a half. My role was litigation based and I would run various Notices of Motion against quite experienced barristers and be successful. Working for the other side of the fence, I now brief one of those barristers, whom I was successful against.

To avoid restricting myself, and to allow for further personal development, I then accepted a position of employment with a Banking and Finance law firm. I remained in that role for approximately 6 months.
From that time (approximately one year), I have been with the Plaintiff Personal Injury law firm, Gerard Malouf & Partners. I find having worked in the same area of law on the other side of the fence quite advantageous. I am aware of the complete “tricks of the trade”. As a lawyer, it also means that the experience and knowledge gained has enabled me to “think outside the square”.

Other facts about me are that I have had 9 years worth of experience at my local pharmacy. I enjoy watching soccer games. I have also had various articles published in my local paper and the Daily Telegraph.

Now that I am “grown up” I would eventually like to become a barrister. That has always been my intention. As for that car, that wish has also grown. I now wish for a Lotus Elise. As for those “stick drawings”, some things never change!
