Jessica Thomas

Associate at Burke Mead Lawyers

Jessica has been practicing in the area of Personal Injury Law for over ten years. She has had the very unique opportunity of experiencing this area of the law from both the Plaintiff’s and the Defendant’s point of view.

This has given Jessica the opportunity to know how the claims process works from both sides, ensuring that she is able to achieve the best outcome for her clients in the most time and cost effective way possible.

It has also confirmed that her passion for the profession comes from her ability to help those who have been injured or hurt through no fault of their own and need assistance navigating their claim and gaining access to compensation.

In addition to her commerce and law degree, Jessica has obtained a Diploma in counselling and psychology. She has worked closely in previous roles with the NSW Nurses and Midwives Association, Electrical Trades Union and NSW Teachers Federation, providing advice to members regarding their rights under the NSW workers compensation scheme.

  • Workers Compensation;
  • Work Injury Damages;
  • Emergency Service Workers;
  • Motor Vehicle Accidents;
  • Public Liability;
  • Common Law;
  • Sexual abuse claims (including historical);
