After receiving a degree in psychology in 1998 from the University of Sydney Christine went on to successfully complete a Bachelor of Law, graduating in 2001. Studying human behaviour has given Christine a greater sense of empathy when working with her clients. She understands the pain associated with loss and importance of communicating effectively with her clients. Seeing her clients being compensated gives Christine a great sense of satisfaction as she continues to deal with each case in a personal and determined manner.
Christine’s strengths are her ability to listen to her client’s needs and wants and then realistically analyse what can be achieved within the constraints of the legal process and convey this in a way that can be understood by her clients.
A member of the Law Society of NSW, Christine’s clients are largely those who have suffered harm to their reputation as a result of a defamatory publication or verbal comment. Christine has been practising in Defamation Law matters for over three years and enjoys proceeding against newspapers, TV programs, internet hosts and various other publishers and information providers who have incorrectly and/or negligently published material which brings her clients name and reputation in disrepute. Christine has been successful in 99% of her defamation claims and regularly obtains apologies and compensation for the harm caused.
Christine also represents people who find themselves injured as a consequence of accidents in public places, motor vehicle accidents and medical negligence claims.
Christine enjoys the diversity of her work as well as the problem solving nature of her practice. Christine regularly attends intensive and on-going training in her areas of experience to ensure she is up to date with all legislative changes and case law.
Fluent in both English and Arabic, in her spare time Christine loves participating in tae bo, going to the gym and spending time with family and friends.
