Congratulations Julianne Carroll - Hear them Roar

Congratulations to the brilliant Julianne Carroll, Solicitor Director at Commins Hendriks, who has been selected to feature in the Women in Business HEAR THEM ROAR video series. The video series will celebrate the success of women who have achieved outstanding outcomes while living and working locally.

Julianne joined Commins Hendriks as a Law Graduate in 2002 after completing her studies at the University of Canberra. She was admitted to practice as a Solicitor in October 2003 and in 2012 became a Director of Commins Hendriks, the second female board member - an outstanding achievement.

Julianne specialises in litigious disputes, with particular emphasis on public risk insurance, damage from defective products, property damage, debt recovery actions, employment-related disputes, Family Provision claims under the Succession Act, personal injury claims and professional indemnity.

Julianne represents many rural clients, employers, company entities and property owners in a wide range of litigation matters. She is an advocate who has conducted matters in most Australian jurisdictions, including the High Court, Federal Court, New South Wales Court of Appeal, Supreme Court, District Court, Local Court, Fair Work Commission and Consumer, Trader and Tenancy Tribunal. As a consequence of that work she spends large proportion of her professional time in Sydney and Canberra commuting from Wagga.

Julianne enjoys working within the community in which she was schooled and raised. She is a member of the Law Society of New South Wales, Women in Business Wagga Wagga, and is the honorary solicitor for the Wagga Wagga Amateur Picnics, Wollundry Club, Tarcutta RSL and Group Nine Rugby League. Julianne is also the secretary of the St Joseph’s School Board.

Julianne is really passionate about women having opportunities to work in their chosen profession in this wonderful region and views providing opportunities for school leavers and women of all ages as important.

Mayfly Media Productions will produce Julianne's story in coming months. Stay tuned for more announcements about the inspiring women who have been selected to feature in this fantastic series.

Thanks to our sponsors Wagga Wagga City Council, NSW Government, Commonwealth Bank and Commins Hendriks.
