Colleen has recently joined Potts Lawyers in March 2021 and is mentoring with one of our Directors and Accredited Criminal Law Specialists, Cameron Browne, while she undertakes to complete her practical legal training. Colleen eagerly anticipates being admitted as a Solicitor in Queensland in late 2021. Colleen is currently based out of our Brisbane office; however, Colleen travels to our Southport office on occasion.
Colleen has a passion for criminal law. She briefly volunteered with the Innocence Project during her time at Griffith University because she recognises the significant implications a criminal charge can cause on and individual’s life.
Colleen also understands the importance of increasing access to justice and helping vulnerable members of the community. She volunteered with My Community Legal, a legal centre based on the Gold Coast, for approximately two years and was recently awarded Volunteer of the Quarter in April 2021 for her contributions to the legal centre.
