Born and raised in Beachport, Tess was admitted as a Barrister and Solicitor in the Supreme Court of South Australia and the High Court of Australia in 2011. Tess is passionate about access to justice and has substantial experience as both an advocate and solicitor in complex matters, predominantly in criminal law, in both South Australia and Victoria. Most recently Tess was working at Victoria Legal Aid in Melbourne and practiced exclusively in matters before the Criminal Division of the County Court. Tess handled many complex criminal matters, and her strategic thinking can be applied to any legal situation.
