Five minutes with Jo Austin, one of our 30 year firm veterans!

Joanne (Jo) Austin first joined the firm in 1987, straight out of school and looking for work. Initially just a small business with six people operating out of an East Perth house, Jo has been with the firm for 30 years and has seen it grow from six people to close to 100; from East Perth, to Osborne Park, and finally into the Perth CBD. We caught up with Jo on her 30th anniversary to ask her a few questions about her time with the firm.
