Chrissy Psevdos spent the first 11 years of her career representing insurers in personal injury claims, before a health scare led to a change of perspective and a new level of empathy for injured people.
When Chrissy was diagnosed with cancer following the birth of her second child, it turned her life upside down. She was immediately faced with immense challenges, both physical and psychological.
During the two year recovery process, Chrissy realised that what she was going through was not unlike the battle faced by many people who have been injured in an accident. She truly understands what it is like to have your life changed in an instant, and the impact on all aspects of a person’s life and also their loved ones.
It gave Chrissy a greater sense of empathy and a stronger desire to focus on people, which meant moving on from representing the insurer and into the role of a personal injury lawyer.
That experience of working on the other side is now a significant advantage for her clients at TGB. It means that she is one step ahead; she knows the process that will be taken by the insurer’s team and can pre-empt potential issues and areas of dispute.
It gives Chrissy the ability to provide accurate advice about what outcomes are achievable and the expected timeframes, which is comforting for clients who are seeking a quick resolution to their matter.
Chrissy’s sought-after mix of technical skills, compassion and life experience ensures that she will always see both the legal and human side of every challenge.
