Rebecca Shaw


Rebecca (or Bec as she likes to be called) has been on the Fraser Coast since birth. Sure, she has travelled beyond to discover herself, however the Fraser Coast is her life.

Bec cut her teeth in a prominent Maryborough law firm, before seeing the opportunity to grow with Law Essentials, working in both our Hervey Bay and Maryborough offices.

Bec brings a wealth of experience in commercial law, litigation and family law and has slotted into the friendly and fun team easily.

She loves nothing more than sitting down to watch the NRL with a glass of milk and a few cookies.
