The Appointment of a Senior Associate & Two New Solicitors!
Posted on 18 Oct 2019

Cronin Miller Litigation has announced the appointment of three new staff members. We are pleased to welcome senior associate Andrea Joyce, solicitor Rachel Hamada and solicitor Chelsey Grbcic to our litigation team.


Senior Associate | Andrea Joyce

Andrea returns to the litigation team as a senior associate after a year working with a large national firm in Brisbane.  Andrea has advanced skills and experience in advising and acting for clients in all areas of corporate insolvency and commercial disputes.

Her experience ranges from acting for secured and unsecured creditors in navigating a clear path through the recoveries process, to advising insolvency practitioners on the appropriate action in external administrations, and resolving disputes arising from difficult business relationships.  

Andrea recognises the importance of assisting those that are disadvantaged in the community, in any capacity, and is passionate about advocating the position of those to bring about equality in dispute resolution.

The law can be a minefield.  Andrea delivers when it comes to explaining the law in a clear and concise way that clients can grasp. This gives her clients the greatest confidence that they are making the right decisions.


Solicitor | Rachel Hamada

Following her admission in 2014, Rachel began her journey based in Brisbane, practicing across Australia in the areas of commercial litigation, debt recovery, corporate insolvency and internal and external dispute resolution. Her experience extends from working with large publicly listed companies and government organisations, to small businesses, liquidators, trustees and individuals.

Rachel puts value in building strong and lasting relationships with her clients, and providing tailored and commercial advice.  

Having set down roots on the sunny Gold Coast, Rachel enjoys picnics with her family on weekends and a spot of yoga given the chance.


Solicitor | Chelsey Grbcic

Chelsey joined the team at Cronin Miller Litigation in September 2019 and has practiced exclusively in the areas of commercial litigation, debt recovery, contractual disputes and dispute resolution on the Gold Coast since 2015.

Chelsey has a particular expertise in industrial and employment related litigation including dismissals, discrimination, adverse action complaints, workplace investigations and disciplinary proceedings.

Chelsey is known for her professionalism and steely determination to provide a high-quality service paired with a strategic and commercially driven outcome. When it comes to her clients, Chelsey is very much relationship driven as opposed to transactional.

Born and raised in South Africa, Chelsey immigrated to the Gold Coast and fell in love with all that this city has to offer. Having completed most of her schooling and further studies on the Gold Coast, Chelsey has developed strong, professional ties and is very much a part of the Gold Coast business community.
