Formally my name is Manmeet Kaur Verma but mostly I am known as Mannie Kaur Verma.
Who am I, really?
I am an Indian-born-Australian. A Lawyer. An Advocate. A Wife. And the most rewarding title – A Mother to two beautiful children.
As the Principal Solicitor at Regal Lawyers, I empower my clientele, majority migrants, to fight for their rights. This may include demanding a respectful relationship, employee entitlements or justice in a dispute. I place intersectionality at the core of my practice.
As a Co-Founder of the non-profit organisation, Veera - Brave Girl, I am
committed to educating and empowering migrant women to break the cycle of abuse.
As the former Labor candidate for Rowville, I am committed to the Labor movement and the local community.

I pay my deep respects to elders past, present and emerging, whose cultures are among the oldest continuing cultures in human history. I commit myself to resisting systems of oppression that have dispossessed Aboriginal people of their lands and denied them of their rights to self-determination.
