Helping clients feel optimistic and empowered while navigating their personal injury claim is one of the key drivers of satisfaction for our newly appointed senior lawyer, Stephen Hughes. 

Stephen, who has been a Personal Injury Accredited Specialist since 1998, brings rich experience in making a difference in the lives of those struggling through personal adversity. 

Apart from achieving optimal financial settlements for his clients, what Stephen loves about our work is helping vulnerable people feel listened to, included and hopeful as they manoeuvre the legal process together. 

Stephen’s appointment comes as our almost 40-strong team increases in breadth and value for our clients.  

Securing someone with so much experience in both personal injury and workplace relations law is a real credit to our firm’s reputation for being a great place to work. I’m sure our clients and everyone at our firm, especially our rising stars, will benefit from having Stephen aboard. 

As well as being genuinely enthusiastic about compensation law, Stephen is a warm and generous person who clearly aligns with our guiding values of fairness, respect and compassion. We are thrilled to welcome him to our fast-growing team. 

Since being admitted to the Queensland Supreme Court in 1991, Stephen has enjoyed a diverse career in compensation law and employment law, most recently as a Principal Lawyer with an award winning and nationally recognised specialist workplace relations firm. 

Last year he was awarded an Honorary Fellowship of national peak body the Australian Society of Rehabilitation Counsellors, having served as an Honorary Board Member and Legal Counsel since 1993.  

Other service roles include 10 years as Director and Secretary of Volunteering Gold Coast Inc, and current membership of the LAWASIA Executive Committee on Employment and Labour Law. 

When not at work, Stephen likes spending time with his daughter and indulging in art collecting, travel and bushwalking. 

Our firm was founded in 2018 with the aim of doing compensation law differently, offering cutting edge expertise, without the price tag. We now have the expertise of six Queensland Law Society (QLS) Accredited Specialists working from offices in Brisbane, the Gold Coast, the Sunshine Coast and Cairns.
