Rita is an Accredited Specialist in Personal Injury Law. She joined Carroll & O’Dea Lawyers in June 2023 and is part of our compensation law practice. She handles a variety of claims including those arising out of motor vehicle accidents, travel accidents, medical negligence, and work injuries, as well as public liability claims.

Rita’s career has included vast experience in legal publishing, commercial management, product development and strategy roles through LexisNexis.

She has contributed to publications such as the Personal Injury Law Manual, Comparable Verdicts in Personal Injury Claims, Elite Agent, Precedent and the Law Society Journal.

Rita has also participated in several media interviews regarding the White Island volcano disaster. This includes media outlets in Australia and overseas, such as Four Corners (ABC) and Radio NZ.

“While money will never fully take away the effects of an injury and bring back what is lost, compensation can be a vital part of healing and moving on. I strive to achieve practical outcomes for my clients and to help them reach a point of closure.”
