My name is Rachel Rooney and I am a lawyer in the WorkCover department defending Serious Injury Applications and Common Law damages proceedings in the County and Supreme Courts of Victoria.
Prior to commencing with Wisewould Mahony I worked at a plaintiff personal injury law firm whilst completing my law degree. I graduated from Victoria University in 2013, completed my traineeship in 2014 and was admitted to practice in March 2015. Following my admission I continued work as a plaintiff personal injury lawyer specialising in WorkCover and Public Liability.
After arriving at Wisewould Mahony it didn’t take long to realise that I am surrounded by exceptionally bright people with a down to earth attitude that makes coming to work everyday a pleasure. My position offers challenges on a daily basis which require me to be innovative, attentive, persistent and organised!
I am currently completing my Masters in Laws at Melbourne University which is a regular reminder of how the law is constantly evolving, and how much I love that.
