Jessica McCrohan was admitted by the Supreme Court of Victoria as a Lawyer in 2018 after completing her law degree and working full time as assistant to the Principal, Stephen Schembri since 2015. Her success in that role displayed her dedication and commitment to our firm and while Stephen was reluctant to lose her as his “right arm” he is proud to support her and mentor her as a young lawyer.
Jessica is eager to gain experience as a lawyer in all areas of the law and has therefore worked on many different matters and cases within our firm, however, her passion is Family Law and Criminal Law. She has a positive attitude and is predisposed to being pragmatic which is of great value to her clients and our firm.
MAIN AREAS OF PRACTICE
- Criminal Defence
- Family Law including divorce, property and children’s matters.
- Wills and Powers of Attorney
- Intervention Order Applications and breaches of Intervention Orders
- Debt recovery matters for individuals and corporations
- Workers Compensation claims
The skills and knowledge I gained working as a Law Clerk prior to be admitted as a solicitor and the volunteering work I do as a solicitor at WestJustice (night service) assisting those less fortunate.
