Police Officer “Sgt Rick Flori” talks about Renee ;-

 

??????????

It is with great pleasure that I am able to provide some insight into the person known as Renee Eaves. Over the last couple of years Renee has provided both me and my family with an exceptional level of support through very trying times. The exceptional part is that she asks for nothing, her willingness to support those in need whilst from time to time concurrently dealing with her own personal commitments  demonstrates her depth of character. Renee is ever reliable with high moral and ethical standards. Her intuitive nature places her in a unique position when dealing with people from all walks of life. Renee is one of those rare people that do and mean what they say.

Renee has supported me on complex legal matters involving intense negotiations and liaisons with the courts and a number of government bodies. Her skills and knowledge have not been gained through study at any university but through her life experiences. Renee has been a consummate professional in all of our dealing, she has the tenacity to remain focussed on the task at hand and yet as a broad thinker is not easily blind sided.

I could not think of any other person that does so much for so many and my life is the better for having Renee Eaves in it.

Lawyer and Politician “Peter Russo” talks about Renee :-

 

 

When the nation’s media put the spotlight on Peter Russo at the height of the Dr Haneef case, the comparison was quickly made between him and the shambolic lawyer Dennis Denuto in the classic Australian film The Castle.

Russo good-naturedly accepts part of the Denuto persona, and even sheepishly admits to having kicked the odd photocopying machine to make it work, just as Denuto did in the The Castle.

As the Haneef investigation unfolded, and it became apparent that this was a David-Goliath battle between an individual and the might of a government, Russo held his nerve. He let the facts, contested in a hothouse of political and police speculation, speak for themselves.

Fondly known for his big heart, it is possibly this that drew this seemingly unlikely pair to cross paths.

In Renee’s opening statement at the beginning of her trial against the Qld Police service the judge had explained that basically this was not going to be easy on Eaves as she was in the Lawyers playground so to speak, and that somebody was going to win, and somebody was going to lose.

Renee’s response – down to Earth from the heart and straight to the point likened her to Erin Brocovich played by Julia Roberts in the Hollywood blockbuster.  –  “ I would never treat a fellow human being the way I have been treated so I feel as if I’ve already won” .

Russo good-naturedly accepts part of the Denuto persona, and even sheepishly admits to having kicked the odd photocopying machine to make it work, just as Denuto did in the The Castle.

Fondly known for his big heart, it is possibly this that drew this seemingly unlikely pair to cross paths.

The judge then asked her if she thought she could do this, and not unlike Russo’s Aussie spirit – she announced “Im going to give it my best shot that’s for sure your honour”.  Renee gave those with some 30 years experience what can only be described as the International finger from the fast lane, able to think on her feet, she proved she is not just a pretty face, she cross examined seasoned pro’s, firing difficult questions hard and fast that ultimately led her to be the first women to self represent and a win a case of it’s kind in Australia.

Peter Says Renee is a great medium between the complexities of the law and the person on the street.  She conducted her trial as a lay person with courage and wisdom, thus has become a voice for the underdog.

Renee receives a lot of enquires from really desperate people that are overwhelmed with what they are against and I think it is her attitude that makes for success.
That can be summed up when you listen to her message bank on her mobile, most messages you get off the phone thinking geez – after hearing an abrupt message  ‘leave your name and number thanks’ … beep… but you leave one on Renee’s phone, and she speaks with a warm voice ‘I hope you have a really good day’, and you think to yourself yes, yes I will.

She cares deeply about people, and it’s apparent that is who she is. Legally as a formally unqualified person, Renee has great insight into complex legal issues, It is commendable the way she navigates her way through the twists and turns and the ups and downs.

She understands the nature of the beast when it comes to litigation and the agendas of all parties involved, as was in her own case, she played the role of both the plaintiff and the defence.

There is no doubt in my mind with her experience she will continue to bring to the table insight that will assist the Noa Begic case greatly.

 

 

Victim of Police Brutality ‘Noa Begic’  speaks about Renee

Renee with Noa Begicrenee noa court and social

Since being assaulted badly by members of the QLD Police service, Renee has been the guiding light I needed. She makes all the complications of dealing with the Law and Lawyers simplified in a way that I understand it all. It’s almost as if she is a translator for us normal people out here, she keeps up with Lawyers that are at the top of their field, then is able to explain it all back to me in Laymans terms. When Renee is in the room and the situation starts to feel overwhelming, confusing or intimidating, she has a magical way of making me feel as if she has the strength to rip through the whole room like a warrior if it were needed. Put simply, she makes me feel safe. Her eye for detail means she does not miss a thing, not to mention a memory like an elephant! She has the ability to see clearly what is going on in a room at a very different level too.

I tell my mates Renee is what I call a Hybrid – it’s seriously like she is part lawyer that is not a lawyer and part kindred spirit – She is a guardian angel for those that are suffering injustice.  Renee has dealt with the media on my behalf and been able to convey to them an accurate account of how I’m feeling and what is happening with my matter. Without Renee I don’t know how I would have had the strength to fight back.
