Montana is currently studying her Bachelor of Laws and Bachelor of Arts (Psychology) at Wollongong University. She has been awarded the Dean’s Merit Award issued by the Faculty of Law in 2022 (ranking in the top 5% of the school of law in 2021 academic year) as well as the Thomson Reuters Prize, issued by the Faculty of Law in 2022 (highest mark in LLB1160 in 2021).
Montana completed her high school work experience in 2018 at Foye Legal and then commenced with the firm in January 2021 after completing her HSC. She is now a law clerk in the Personal Injury Division.
Montana’s passion for law has grown after seeing how accidents have affected people close to her. She understands how an injury can make a person struggle with living a new reality. Montana believes that while compensation is the ultimate outcome to alleviate any financial burden, support and reassurance is just as important. This inspires her work in personal injury law and gives her the opportunity to speak to clients regularly throughout their matters as they navigate this difficult period in their lives.
Having had the opportunity to work in various areas of criminal and personal injury law, particularly historical child sexual institutional abuse claims, Montana is always open to listen to the stories of each client and their unique circumstances. She believes that understanding the best way in which each client can be personally supported during their legal matters can be challenging but highly gratifying, particularly when you are able to also achieve the best legal outcome possible for the client.
