Jasmine Opdam

Jasmine Opdam is a consumer credit lawyer in the community legal sector who is passionate about using the law to improve women’s financial security and combat the hidden epidemic of financial abuse. She currently leads Redfern Legal Centre’s Financial Abuse Service NSW, a free legal service which assists victim survivors of financial abuse in intimate partner relationships to remedy coerced debt and achieve financial independence.

Jasmine coordinates the Economic Abuse Reference Group, a national network of over 50 community organisations which identify systemic issues and work to improve government and industry responses to this widespread but under-reported form of domestic abuse.

Prior to joining the community sector, Jasmine worked in commercial regulatory litigation in the financial services sector and in human rights and international criminal law.

Jasmine was awarded the 2021 Lawyers Weekly 30 under 30 Award in the Community Legal Centre category and was a finalist for Community Lawyer of the Year in the 2023 Women Lawyers Association of NSW Achievement Awards.
