Conveyancing Clerk

A recent addition to the Whyte Just and Moore team, Sam completed his Bachelor of Laws/Bachelor of International Studies (International Relations) with Distinction in 2020, despite the obstacles that year contained. Meticulous and dedicated, Sam has chosen the legal profession working to the adage, ‘choose a job you love and you will never have to work a day in your life’. Before starting at WJM, Sam made sure that the law sparked joy while interning at Deakin University’s Law Clinic and volunteering at the Villamanta Disability Rights Legal Service. Specialising in conveyancing, Sam is looking forward to bringing humour and a personal touch to each client’s transactions as he helps them navigate the processes of buying or selling property.

When he’s not preparing and lodging documents or overseeing settlement processes, Sam is on a mission to visit each and every one of Geelong’s great coffee and brunch spots, compiling a list of the best strong espressos along the way. A firm Geelong Cats fan, Sam is also passionate about soccer – you can find him playing it up with the Deakin Ducks or keeping up with the trials and triumphs of Liverpool FC.
