Allie started at FGD in 2015 having been a star witness in a case we acted in. At paragraph 187 of that case, Watts J said in respect of Allie, “I did not find her evidence to be in any way unreliable.” We’d extend that sentiment to her work but would add that she is thorough, sensitive, intelligent and a great problem solver. Allie has worked in various roles during her time at FGD, but is now a senior paralegal. Don’t let her affable personality and general good nature fool you; when required Allie is tenacious and assertive and clients have regularly commented on how dependable she was in a crisis. Allie is passionate about using creative thinking to work smarter and help her clients. You will be stoked to have her on your team, as are we.
In a previous life Allie worked as an optical dispenser so if you need advice as to eyewear (function or fashion) she is an obvious go-to. She is currently completing a Bachelor of Art History (we haven’t quite convinced her to transfer to law) so is also our go-to for any advice about art. On a Friday night you’ll find her with a glass of red watching the footy (winter) or a G & T watching Grand Designs (summer). Her weekend routine often consists of trying to cram too much in, including markets, brunch, gardening, bush walks with her partner and their Staffordshire Bull Terrier George, and spending time at her family’s “bush block” in country NSW. She believes yoga and good quality food are the cure for just about anything.
