Born and raised in Australia, Julianne left the Outback and her Vegemite to continue her legal studies in New Brunswick. Captivated by the Canadian climate, Julianne decided to make the Great White North her permanent home. But don’t let her bright smile fool you: like most native Australian species, Julianne is lethal.

Clients appreciate that Julianne gets straight to the point. Her litigation style is direct and matter of fact, which makes Julianne well suited for claims involving fraud and misrepresentation. Julianne is trusted by insurance clients to investigate accident benefits and property claims by way of EUO and represents insurers in ensuing disputes. Julianne is no stranger to the Licence Appeal Tribunal with many successful accident benefits decisions. She represents insurers in priority and loss transfer disputes including appeals to the Superior Court and Ontario Court of Appeal.

Julianne keeps fit and has fun playing ultimate Frisbee, baking cupcakes, and spoiling her cat, Charlotte.
