Rossana joined Wendy Blacker Lawyers in May 2019, bringing with her over 30 years of experience as a legal assistant, personal assistant and paralegal. Rossana has also worked in Chambers as a personal assistant to Counsel and in the last two years as an Associate to a Supreme Court Judge.
Rossana has strong organisational and problem solving skills, works well under pressure and in a team environment. During her career she has worked in small and large firms in the CBD allowing her to assist in litigated and un-litigated matters in the areas of personal injury, insurance law, victims’ compensation claims, professional indemnity and, early in her career, criminal law.
With her recent experience as an Associate, Rossana has the added knowledge of court processes inside and outside the Court room.
Her work as a paralegal has allowed her to deal with matters from instruction to settlement processes; Rossana is familiar with all the necessary steps to efficiently take a matter to completion in order to ensure timely completion and to comply with the requisite statutory requirements.
Rossana’s experience allows her to work independently commensurate with her role and she is confident dealing with government and insurer clients, counsel, court representatives, witnesses, medical professionals, agents and statutory bodies.
Rossana is passionate about her work and her goal is to ensure that clients receive the best possible level of service while at the same time providing the best support and assistance to her team.
