Chloe joined the SCB Legal family, at the beginning of January 2020. Being the youngest member of the team leaves her at no disadvantage, as she is extremely passionate in all that she does.
She brings a wealth of talent and experience, having joined SCB Legal after spending 5 years in customer service. Her remarkable communication skills enable her to communicate with people of all ages and backgrounds.
Her passion for equality before the Courts is what prompted her to want to make a change. Chloe comments that she was eager to be given the opportunity by Ms Breust to gain exposure in the many areas of law SCB Legal covers. Of particular importance was being able to see how SCB Legal aims to help every individual, regardless of their background.
Chloe is currently studying a double degree in Business and Law and said:
“I was thrilled to work amongst the SCB Legal team that genuinely cares for all their clients. They work extremely hard to ensure clients receive the outcome they deserve.”
After becoming the dux of Cambridge Park High school, Ms Breust completed 2 Bachelor degrees at the University of Western Sydney, Bachelor of laws and Social science, majoring in criminology. Reflective of her immense passion for the law, Ms Breust returned to University to complete her masters degree. In 2018, she received a Master of Laws in Criminal Prosecutions.
While at University, she began giving back to the Aboriginal community, completing 2 internships. Urbis, focusing on people who were economically disadvantaged and Aboriginal legal service, care and protection, drafting a solicitor’s manual about care and protection matters.
Ms Breust completed a Graduate diploma in legal practice at the college of law and did her practical legal training solely in care and protection. Most clients were on legal aid, in keeping with her dedication and commitment to helping those less fortunate. After being admitted to the Supreme Court of NSW and high court she worked at legal aid as an Aboriginal law graduate. While being involved in all areas of the law, her primary areas of focus were family law and care and protection, civil law and criminal law. She entered private practice and worked in a general law firm doing all matters from criminal, family, commercial, conveyancing, personal injury, civil law and appeared in the Supreme Court, district court, local court, children’s court and tribunals.
In 2016, she began SCB Legal as a sole practitioner but support of the law firm was overwhelming and within 12 months, the staff grew to its current team of 5. It’s Ms Breust’s passion and single-minded determination that is the driving force behind the successful boutique law firm. Ms Breust remarked that her goal:
is to help those in need regardless of their financial position. It’s imperative to obtain the best possible outcome without the client incurring unnecessary legal fees.
The future looks bright for SCB Legal with the firm’s continued expansion and plans for its Sydney CBD location.
