"Lawyers have a professional and moral duty to represent the underrepresented in our society, to ensure that justice exists for all, both legal and economic justice” – Sonia Sotomayor
Marina completed her undergraduate degree with honours, a Bachelor of Social Science majoring in Criminal Justice and Justice Studies, at Charles Sturt University in 2013. Afterwards she decided to pursue her interest in law and completed the Juris Doctor with a specialisation in Corporate and Commercial Law at Macquarie University in 2017.
While undertaking the subject Equity and Trusts at Macquarie University, Marina began to develop a sincere fascination with Contesting Wills as well as a desire to seek justice for the individuals involved in these matters.
On securing a position with Gerard Malouf and Partners as a graduate solicitor Marina was delighted when she was given the opportunity to work within the area of Contesting Wills.
At present, Marina is under the guidance of two excellent lawyers, Rita Furfaro and Richele Nelsen. Under the guidance of Richele she is currently working in the area of Contesting Wills and is successfully expanding her knowledge, skills and experience in this area of law and aims to be an expert in the field within the next 5 years.
She understands the importance of truly listening to clients in order to achieve the best possible outcome for the client as well as one that is meaningful to them. This coupled with her sincere empathy towards people and desire to go over and beyond leaves clients feeling very satisfied with their experience at Gerard Malouf and Partners.
When Marina is not working she enjoys trips to Bathurst to see her family and undertaking her favourite pastime of painting and drawing.
