Rebecca Tidswell has over 18 years experience in litigation focusing specifically on complex medical law issues. She has been listed as a leading Plaintiff Medical Negligence Lawyer in Doyle’s Guide to the Australian Legal Profession for her expertise and ability in the area, as recognised by NSW defendant insurance solicitors.

Rebecca developed her skills working at a top tier firm in the UK as a medical law specialist. Since moving to Australia in 2004, she has built a medical law practice, which rests on significant professional knowledge, effective communication with client and counsel alike, and strong empathy with people.

After the successful resolution of a difficult case, a client of Rebecca’s wrote to the firm saying, “Honestly, thank you for everything you have done. You have been really truthful, real and patient with us and your knowledge, time and dedication to our case means more to us than you know. Thank you for taking Dad’s case so seriously and treating us like a family and not a number. Acknowledging Dad’s life was worth something, worth the fight”.

Rebecca has extensive experience in Civil claims, Coronial Inquests, Health Care Complaints, Family Provision actions, and Statutory Wills. Moreover Rebecca has a diverse experience in working with clients of all ages and backgrounds who have suffered brain injuries, spinal injuries, general medical problems and mental health issues.  

The emphasis Rebecca places on the relationship between solicitor, client, expert and counsel has been instrumental in her many successful outcomes.

“Learning more about medicine and working with lots of different people, who all have something interesting and new to teach, inspire my professional life. This is all encouraged at Carroll & O’Dea Lawyers.”
