Jasmin commenced practicing as a lawyer at Johnston Withers in 2019, after completing her Graduate Diploma in Legal Practice (GDLP) placement and working here as a clerk in 2018.

Coming from a union background and being passionate about social justice, Jasmin decided to become a lawyer so that she could assist those in need to access legal advice and representation. Jasmin approaches her work with empathy, attention to detail, and critical thinking.

Jasmin works primarily in the employment and industrial law and criminal law teams. She has worked for a number of unions and has experience with industrial disputes and employment matters, including unfair dismissals and disciplinary proceedings. She has also worked with counsel on criminal trials in the District and Supreme Courts and advocated for clients in sentencing matters in the Magistrates Courts.

Jasmin volunteered for several non-government organisations in the legal and education fields, including Aboriginal Legal Rights Movement Inc., The Smith Family and the Australian Refugee Association, prior to joining Johnston Withers.
