LLB (First Class Hons).
Grad Dip. Legal Practice.
Adv. Certificate in Mediation, Arbitration & Dispute Resolution (Germany).
Joseph holds a Bachelor of Laws with first class honours and has completed courses in mediation, arbitration and dispute resolution. Joseph has long held the view that marginalized members of the community, such as those who are subjected to family violence, suffer from addictions, or mental illnesses are afforded appropriate access to justice.
Moreover, Joseph has a strong sense of social justice and firmly believes
that with the privilege of being an Australian Lawyer comes the inherent
responsibility to not only maintain and preserve relationships in the
broader community but to also show empathy and responsiveness to members of the community who need it most and to ensure that their rights and responsibilities are justly upheld.
Joseph's clients can take comfort in the fact that he is non-judgemental and that they will be afforded access to accessible, efficient and appropriate legal advice.
Outside of the law Joseph is a self confessed foodie, who loves to travel with his partner exploring new places and enjoys wetting a line fishing.
