What she does
Colleen is gaining experience in our personal injury team by assisting in handling matters involving clients who have suffered physical or psychological injuries due to a workplace accident, medical negligence, public liability, motor vehicle accident and negligence generally.
“I am extremely passionate about assisting people who have suffered injury to achieve the best outcome that the legal system can provide. Clients approach us at a difficult time in their lives. I provide them with support and ensure I understand each individual’s story so I can be the best advocate for them and their interests.”

Life Outside Kells
When not studying or working, Colleen is enthusiastic about being outdoors – from bush walking to sky diving. She enjoys spending quality time with family and friends and loves teaching herself new songs on the piano.
