Roberta is the Principal Solicitor at Consumer Credit Legal Service (WA) Inc. (CCLSWA), a specialist community legal centre based in Perth.  She studied at the University of Sydney, the National University of Ireland, Galway, and the University of Western Australia.  She holds a Bachelor of Commerce and a Bachelor of Law degree. She has also completed professional practice courses at the Law Society of Ireland and the College of Law Western Australia.

 Roberta worked in private practice in Ireland, specialising in property and banking before relocating to Perth. Following admission to practice in WA, she worked for a commercial law firm before jumping at the opportunity to join CCLSWA and “sit on the other side of the table” to voice the risks of unaffordable lending from the consumer perspective. Since joining the team at CCLSWA she has assisted many vulnerable consumers successfully pursue responsible lending claims against big banks and payday lenders.  Roberta takes a lead role in CCLSWA’s law reform submissions andstakeholder engagements in the belief that it is the role of consumer advocates to speak up for those who do not have the knowledge, resources, or capacity to advocate for themselves. She is a regular presenter at the FCAWA annual conference and joined the FCAWA Board in 2021.
