Amanda commenced her legal career in a personal injury firm whilst undertaking her studies in Toowoomba, Queensland. She graduated with a Bachelor of Laws in 2018 and was admitted to practise in the Supreme Court of Queensland and the High Court of Australia in 2019.

Since commencing her legal career, Amanda has gained a wide range of experience across a number of different matter types; such as motor vehicle accident claims, workers’ compensation and public liability claims.

Although she has worked in other areas of law for brief periods of time, including commercial law, Amanda was drawn to plaintiff personal injury law by her strong desire to achieve just outcomes for everyday people in what is often the most difficult times in their lives.

Through her work, Amanda has helped clients from different backgrounds and industries, to regain control over their lives after what is often a daunting, confusing and exhausting experience. When clients are uncertain about their future after an injury or accident, Amanda prides herself on delivering compassionate advice to lead the way.

For Amanda, the most rewarding part of her role as a personal injury lawyer is interacting with clients. She is empathetic and caring and takes pride in her client service; delivering her clients positive outcomes whilst supporting them along the way. She always takes the time to check in on her clients and ensure they are fully informed every step of the way until the finalisation of their claim.

Outside of work, Amanda is interested in wrongful conviction cases, true crime and enjoys learning about history. She is an avid video gamer, but also enjoys playing golf, practising piano, and spending time with her fiancé and two dogs, a White German Shepherd, and a Maltese cross.

It was a pleasure to deal with Hall Payne Lawyers for our personal wills.

In particular Mr. Ian Kelly who made it easy to navigate through the documents and interacted with us to suit our needs.

In my late 30’s self employed professional, I fell from grace, bankrupt, lost my health, my career and my marriage. Hall Payne was the shining light for me through these very dark times, the better part of 5 years in which they took the helm and left no stone unturned.

The result: three successful claims (2TPD & 1IP) the best possible outcome and an absolutely outstanding law firm to deal with. Special thanks to Leanne: Her diligence to handle all the complexities that occurred along the way was infallible and I am forever grateful for her support. Highly Recommend ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
