I’m Steve Jacobs.
I have specialised in all aspects of workers compensation law since my admission to practice in 1974.
I acted for various private insurers until the commencement of the WorkCare scheme in 1985, and I have continuously acted for the scheme regulator since then. I have also acted for numerous self insured employers and, currently, I principally manage fatality claims for WorkSafe.
I joined the partnership of WML in Jan 2003, when I transferred the WorkCover group from Middletons Lawyers to WM.
I particularly enjoy the relaxed informality and progressive flexibility of the firm, combined with a no nonsense and uncompromising commitment to achieving the best possible results for our clients.
I believe that optimum outcomes are achieved through a dedication to being disciplined, supremely organised, responsive, efficient and focused.
I still enjoy the professional and intellectual stimulation and challenges of an adversarial legal practice and my enthusiasm, combined with almost 45 years of experience, drives me to strive to achieve the best possible outcomes as quickly and cost effectively as possible.
