Maggie graduated in 1984 from the UTS Sydney, receiving a degree in Law and began working with George Sten & Co in 1985. With a family heritage of lawyers, Maggie decided to work in Criminal Law only after having visited a Women’s refuge and decided that she wanted to help make a difference in people’s lives.
She has an appreciation for the diversity of backgrounds that people come from, which can result in a lack of understanding of the Law. This is where she demonstrates attributes of benevolence and patience, as she explains the Law in detail, helping people to understand what is acceptable and non-acceptable behaviour.
Maggie’s father, both grandfathers and great grandfather were all lawyers. Maggie has a deep knowledge and understanding of the law and the court system and can use this to your advantage.
Maggie is also passionate about seeing people rehabilitated where they are able to progress with their lives in a successful and satisfying manner. Maggie speaks fluent Polish.
