Jodi Austin

Legal Secretary

Jodi began her legal career in 2009 on the Gold Coast of Australia and is a budding solicitor and current legal secretary at BELAW. Having recently relocated to Cairns from the Mid North Coast of New South Wales, Jodi has brought her young family to Tropical FNQ to finish her Graduate Diploma in Legal Practice and pursue her dream career as a lawyer.

Jodi provides administrative support for the Stolen Wages class action, which seeks the recovery of wages withheld by the State of Queensland prior to 1972. Additionally, she puts her considerable experience to good use providing assistance to two other solicitors at BELAW. This varied work rotation is good news for Jodi, who isn’t quite sure what area of law she would like to practice when she becomes a fully-fledged solicitor.

Jodi is a total health nut and enjoys a variety of activities including netball, yoga, and tennis – she’s also an enthusiastic vegan, though we don’t hold that against her! Not content to stretch her legal mind at work, Jodi enjoys a bit (a lot) of true crime in her downtime and has big plans to travel the globe with her family.
