Founder & Principal
I was born on the Croatian Island of Korcula and immigrated with my family to Australia, growing up in a migrant bilingual working-class family where I learnt the importance of hard work and loyalty to one’s family and community.
I graduated from the University of Western Australia and was admitted to practice as a lawyer in 1985. I was fortunate to start my legal career in a busy personal injury practice representing injured workers and road accident victims, fighting hard in court and negotiating against insurance companies, employers and large corporations.
I quickly found I was naturally attracted to and passionate about working for injured plaintiff’s. So, I threw myself into learning as much as I could and thrived on winning claims and negotiating excellent lump sum settlements for my clients.
At a relatively young age in the profession, I became a partner in the legal practice Prause Mohen Separovic and then in 1990 took the plunge to start my own legal practice Separovic Injury Lawyers.
In 1993 Separovic Injury Lawyers moved to 453 Beaufort Street, Highgate and from those same heritage premises until the present day, the practice has continued to evolve and significantly grow into one of Perth’s longest standing and trusted specialist Plaintiff injury legal practices, specialising in car accident and industrial work accident claims.
In over 30 years of practice in Western Australia, Separovic Injury Lawyers have successfully negotiated and settled thousands of compensation claims and over this period of time the practice has developed a strong reputation in WA for being experienced litigators and tough negotiators, who are really passionate about putting their client’s interests first and doing everything possible to secure the best result in every claim.
I genuinely feel very grateful and honoured to have had the opportunity to serve the Western Australian community and help so many people in their claims at what is often a very difficult time in their lives. It has been such a rewarding experience and journey from a professional point of view and it has also allowed me to, connect with so many people on a personal and meaningful level.
I can also honestly say that I still love the work! In fact, I enjoy so many aspects of the job from dealing with clients; to preparing and building each case with the necessary evidence; negotiating settlements and mentoring a really terrific and dedicated legal team of lawyers; paralegals and support staff. I can proudly and safely say that the legal team here at Separovic injury lawyers are at the top of their game!
Outside of work, I have many interests but most importantly I love spending time with my family. I am a passionate surfer and lover of the ocean; I love cooking, especially Mediterranean cuisine and I enjoy staying fit and healthy with regular daily exercise and mindfulness practices.
Separovic Injury Lawyers Partners
Tony Separovic, Aimee Schmidt and Veronica Lam
Growing up on Victoria’s surf coast and later Geelong, Aimee completed her double degree in Law/Commerce at Deakin University, graduating with honours.
Before starting work in legal practice, Aimee worked as a professional lifeguard and in private wealth management for Goldman Sachs JB Were.
Aimee started her legal career in Queensland and was admitted in 2013. Upon relocating to Perth, Aimee commenced employment with Separovic Injury Lawyers in 2014, from which time she has continued to work exclusively in the personal injury field.
After taking some time off to start a family, she rejoined the practice in 2021 and in 2023 was appointed Partner at Separovic Injury Lawyers.
Aimee is a passionate plaintiff injury lawyer who is very caring and empathetic with her clients. She thoroughly enjoys the challenge of making a difference in the lives of real people and striving to get the best possible results in the processing and finalisation of their compensation claims.
Aimee is also an excellent team leader and mentor of staff and over her career has worked across the spectrum of personal injury claims, including catastrophic injury claims, fatal accident dependency claims, motor vehicle accident claims, workers’ compensation claims, public liability claims, aircraft accident claims, dog attack claims, superannuation claims and criminal injury compensation claims.
When she’s not at work, Aimee enjoys spending time outdoors and on or around the water with her family, as well as good food and catching up with friends.
Veronica was awarded a double degree in Bachelor of Laws and Bachelor of Commerce from the University of Western Australia in 2016. She went on to work in areas of law which allowed her to serve clients on a deeper personal level – including migration law, family law, and property law, before ultimately deciding to work exclusively in personal injury law, fighting exclusively for injured claimants.
Growing up in a working-class family taught Veronica the importance of hard work and resilience, even when times are tough. From a young age she learnt that when an obstacle presents itself, you need to work hard to find a way to overcome it, even if it means you need to break the norm and challenge authorities. For this reason, she chose to practise exclusively in plaintiff personal injury law to fight insurers for the little guy, and to be constantly challenged to find a way, even when it may seem tough.
Veronica joined Separovic Injury Lawyers in 2017 as a curious law graduate looking to make a difference and since that time she has developed into a very competent and technically astute personal injury lawyer.
She has gone on to achieve a number of milestones in the profession at a relatively young age and in 2023 Veronica was appointed a Partner at Separovic Injury Lawyers.
She is proud to lead a team of passionate compensation specialists focussed on fighting for every dollar of compensation her clients deserve and specialising in representing clients injured at work, in a car accident, in a public place, victims of criminal offences, and dependents of victims of fatal accidents.
Veronica speaks Cantonese and says that she finds it even more rewarding when she has the opportunity to assist those with language barriers and feels honoured to serve her community in such a meaningful way.
When Veronica is not fighting insurers, she enjoys Muay Thai, tennis, cycling, and hiking trips around WA.
