Leanne recently helped me settle a matter I would never have been able to deal with on my own, due to multiple medical conditions. She was professional, gentle, helpful, supportive and explained the process clearly. The time frame was realistic and was actually over more quickly than expected.

I would recommend their services highly.

I cannot recommend Hall Payne Lawyers highly enough.

Throughout my case, Alexandra was incredibly responsive, always available to answer my questions and provide updates. She took the time to explain complex legal concepts in a way that was easy to understand, ensuring I felt comfortable and informed every step of the way.

Hall Payne Lawyers has been fantastic to work with when needing specialist advice on contracts of employment and award interpretations in the industries in which we supply labour across New South Wales.
As a not-for-profit, cooperative of members employing over 400 workers each year, it's imperative to our customers that we have a comprehensive understanding of our industrial arrangements and ensure they are correctly applied to our workforce.

Joe Kennedy is a great asset for Hall Payne Lawyers, quick to understand the brief, responsive and able to answer the questions we need at Labourco to continue to operate without any industrial disputation.

Having Joe and the team available when our business needs advice is the perfect solution and provides Labourco with confidence in our tendering process and contract execution.

Thanks to all the Hall Payne staff, we look forward to many more happy years of working together.

Very highly recommend !

Jaclyn Green and Cale Fryer were very understanding and supportive. They showed empathy and compassion and I felt very comfortable opening up to them about my case and how I was feeling at different stages throughout my case.

Cale was very personal and I knew that he genuinely cared about my health first and foremost. Very professional approach to my case and very reassuring. After every conversation I had with Cale I felt more and more confident that my case was going to have a good outcome which in the end it did.

I have told many people about my experience and the satisfaction I felt at the end of my case after working with the team at Hall Payne Lawyers. I highly recommend the professional team at Hall Payne Lawyers.

I’d just like thank Kris Birch from Hall Payne lawyers in Brisbane for the outstanding service she provided on a couple of matters for me and my children.

Firstly on my daughters DV matter, I believe she went over and above what any other person would have done, I appreciate her treating my daughter with decency and respect and for being there for her when her mother should of been, for this I have so much respect for you and I know Chloe does too, and achieving a fantastic outcome was a bonus.

What can I say about mine and my son’s case? Without you in our corner I know we would have been victims too this unjust world we live in, thanks for believing in us and standing up for us.

And I’d also like to thank you for all your support, advice, messages and numerous phone calls with me whilst dealing with my marriage separation, it’s been a rough few years but I’m nearly on the other side, without you I never would have got there, you mean more to me and my children than just our lawyer, you are an inspiration a friend and sorry to tell you but you are part of our family 💚,

So thanks again for everything you’ve done for us and for being the best lawyer in Brisbane.

Leanne's expertise and professionalism were evident from the start, guiding me through every step of the process with patience and clarity. Her personalized approach and attention to detail made a daunting process feel manageable and even straightforward.

We are totally impressed with and thankful for Leanne Taylor, and the excellent advice, hard work and dedication she brought to task to expeditiously secure Australian citizenship for my brother and his two children.

At the dawn of 2023, my New Zealand brother and his family had lived in Australia for ten years, but their situation was dire and their future uncertain. My brother’s son is autistic, permanently and totally disabled, and my brother is the primary caregiver. His hopes and the dreams for his family were bleak -- eclipsed by no access to the disability assistance afforded citizens and permanent residents and no pathway to permanent residency or citizenship.

I live in the United States, and would talk with my brother multiple times a week. In early 2023 he paid close attention to the new government’s efforts to help Kiwis in Australia, and there was renewed hope when the expanded pathway to Australian citizenship was announced effective 1 July 2023.

Life was stressful enough for my brother, and we knew we wanted to secure help with the application process. On 2 July 2023, I read an online article Leanne Taylor had just written about the new law, and was impressed when I checked her Hall Payne biography. With my brother’s approval, I immediately sent Leanne an unsolicited e-mail outlining my brother's saga, and his hopes and dreams. Leanne was aboard quickly, and within weeks she had worked with my brother and lodged the joint citizenship application.

Leanne then provided advice on how to potentially expedite the application. My brother secured letters from medical professionals, teachers and counselors highlighting the dire family situation. The letters and Member of Parliament support sealed ministerial intervention and expedited consideration.

On Australia Day 2024 my brother took the oath of citizenship, and his son and daughter became Australian citizens. I have to marvel at how quickly it all came together, and very much appreciate all Leanne did to forever change the lives of my brother and his family.

It could not have been done so well, and so quickly, without Leanne. We are forever grateful. Thank you to Leanne and her support team at Hall Payne.

From the very beginning, Hall Payne Lawyers demonstrated their commitment to understanding my unique situation. They took the time to patiently listen to my concerns, asking questions to gain a comprehensive understanding of the matter at hand. With this information, they provided me with an initial opinion and transparent cost estimates, allowing me to assess my options with clarity and confidence.

As soon as I enlisted their services, I felt an immense sense of relief knowing that I had entrusted my case to a team of highly experienced professionals. Their expertise and professionalism were evident in every interaction and decision they made on my behalf.

Thanks to their exceptional negotiation skills and understanding of the legal landscape, Hall Payne Lawyers successfully achieved the outcome I had hoped for. Their strategic approach, combined with their commitment to my best interests, proved to be a winning combination.

I cannot express enough gratitude to the entire team at Hall Payne Lawyers. I wholeheartedly recommend their services to anyone seeking legal representation. With Hall Payne Lawyers you are in the hands of true professionals who will fight relentlessly to protect your rights and achieve the best possible outcome for your case.

I recently requested legal advice and representation from Hall Payne Lawyers and was fortunate to have Philip Anthony representing my case. The whole experience with HPL was very positive, incl. good communication, competitive legal fees and overall a very good result after proceedings were completed.

Going through the Workers Compensation process is really awful. It is soul destroying. I could not be more thankful for my lawyer Indi Gunadasa and his team.

I am very impressed with Hall Payne Lawyers performance and qualifications. They have helped me in two cases.

First one was a serious issue at work, which may have been resulted in redundancy. It was overruled in a proper way.

Second time I asked for assistance with the Workplace COVID Vaxx mandates, holding a legitimate vaccine exemption. I am still not fully vaccinated (one dose only) and yet I maintained my employment in a Healthcare setting visiting and servicing labs and hospitals as a service engineer across QLD.

Hall Payne lawyers are not the cheapest ones but I am very happy with the outcomes and it is totally worth it! Highly recommend and appreciate their legal advice. Thanks a lot.

Our experience with Leanne Taylor of Hall Payne Lawyers in achieving a TPD insurance payout was a well supported and successful journey.

Right from the start her manner was kind and reassuring in our difficult personal circumstances. She was very knowledgeable and explained the whole process to us clearly from start to finish.

She was very responsive to all our questions and always answered emails and phone calls quickly, it was never too much trouble when we needed advice and reassurance.

I can honestly say we would not have been able to achieve this successful result without her help.

Thank you Leanne!

To Joe and Brooke 

After suffering a work place injury with my employer, one of the largest multi national companies in the world, didn’t waste time in making life very difficult for me, started to attack my workplace rights as well as given me unreasonable directions. 

This is when I meet Joe Kennedy from Hall Payne. 

Joe was understanding and compassionate about my position but most importantly he was absolutely honest on where I was at. 

Over the next 3 years Joe helped me manoeuvre the many legal and industrial mine fields that was laid out before me. He always offered the best options. Joe  listened to my concerns and desired outcomes and set about achieving those for me. 

Personally I can’t thank Joe enough for all the hard work he has done, no matter what time of day or night Joe would always reply to my messages, emails and calls and delivering the best possible outcome given the circumstances. 

Without Joe I wouldn’t have stood a chance against the Goliath I worked for. Joe is most definitely the man to have in your corner. 

Thank you Brooke for all your help over the last few years too such a amazing firm.

Kind regards, Nadine

I would highly recommend Indi Gunadasa from Hall and Payne. His knowledge and skills in workplace law are exceptional. He was honest, trustworthy,  compassionate and reliable.

Indi's legal advice was correct from the beginning to the end of this process and he achieved a great outcome.

If you have been treated unfairly, unjustly or illegally in the workplace, my advice would be to ring Indi immediately and take his legal advice and if needed employ him to defend you. Not only was Indi amazing in the process all the way through, his legal skills in the mediation were impressive and a very positive outcome for me as his client.

I highly recommend Indi and Hall and Payne Lawyers. Exceptional service, skills and professionalism form early stages to completion. Thank you, Indi!

I want to thank Indi at Hall Payne lawyers for helping me during a very emotional and stressful time. Indi's compassion, expertise and experience guided me through my worker's compensation claim and I could concentrate on my recovery.

Being an 'older' worker had challenges of it's own but Indi was reassuring as I was just ready to waIk away.

The Insurance Company requested an 'Independent' doctors report which was completely negative even though all medical MRI's etc confirmed the injury was ongoing - all weekly payments was abruptly stopped. He assured me my case was good, gave me time frames, explained the process and that he would walk the road with me. True to his word all went according to how Indi explained the process.

As I had to survive financially on Holiday pay, long service leave and built up sick leave I was concerned about payment for services but Indi said Hall Payne Lawyers offer 'NO win NO pay' and the fees were so affordable contrary to what people say. 

I would urge anyone to not be 'scared off' by the Insurance Companies or their 'Independent Doctors' and get in touch with Indi Gunadasa at Hall Payne Lawyers.

Thank you again Indi and your team for making my journey less stressful.

Thankyou Indi At Hall Payne lawyers. Indi helped me settle my worker’s compensation claim for a shoulder injury that happened at my place of work. I am in Launceston so never actually got to meet Indi in person but all contact was through phone and emails due to covid as well as distance.

Indi listened to me and at no time did I feel I was not going to settle my claim without a good outcome. We settled last month and it was a huge weight lifted .

He also gave me advice for the future. My biggest regret was not meeting Indi in person but maybe one day that may happen. I recommend Indi and his team for the service I received. He was Awesome 👏

I can’t thank Shirley and her wonderful team at Hall Payne Lawyers Ipswich enough for the constant guidance, support and the eventual outcome of my court hearing. Shirley you can now take a bow… You presented my case to the barrister in such a professional, cut to the chase way that even the barrister couldn’t fault it!!!

You kept me focused on the end result in what was a very difficult case and it paid off. You went over and above in the level of effort, care and concern for over 2 stressful years. Such a mighty effort. I can highly recommend this team. An outcome I had only ever dared dream of. 🙏🙏🙏

In my late 30’s self employed professional, I fell from grace, bankrupt, lost my health, my career and my marriage. Hall Payne was the shining light for me through these very dark times, the better part of 5 years in which they took the helm and left no stone unturned.

The result: three successful claims (2TPD & 1IP) the best possible outcome and an absolutely outstanding law firm to deal with. Special thanks to Leanne: Her diligence to handle all the complexities that occurred along the way was infallible and I am forever grateful for her support. Highly Recommend ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

The most amazing law firm !! I can’t reccomend highly enough ! 👏🏻👏🏻

Indie constantly phoned me and chatted away giving full explanations and options and reassurance. Honest and reliable service. Everything done for me was to the utmost professionalism with friendly staff, my incredible lawyer Indie and also my wonderful barrister and constant call backs if I had an enquiry .

They supported me every step of the way with a personalised experience and never rushed a phone call but took the time to make sure I was personally going ok and understood everything at each stage and In between. I felt I was cared for and that my case and more importantly myself was also important and understood . I was not just a number.

There was nothing hidden it was all upfront and explained and proved by my end result that they are a genuine and significant law firm.

Everything was made easy for me and easy to understand. I cannot thank them enough for their guidance professionalism and kindness. Even after my case was finalised I still received a call from Indie making sure things were ok and good and offering some more options and advice to help me along after settlement had happened.

I truly cannot thank them enough. I am forever grateful.

When I injured my wrist at work it was a battle from the start with the insurance company. I was incapacitated for about 3 months doing physiotherapy and exercise to try and strengthen my wrist. I was finally able to start a graduated return to work, when suddenly the insurance company decided that my injury was not a work related injury! I was horrified at this total lie, so I contacted Indi Gunadasa at Hall Payne Lawyers.

The whole team at Hall Payne were very helpful, offering a 'No win, No fee' package without having to find any money made it so much easier for me!! Not having worked for some time, I was pretty well broke.

Indi Gunadasa guided me through the legal minefield until we came to the tribunal hearing. The Hall Payne team were right beside me at the hearing and Indi hired a fantastic barrister to fight our case. Within 3 hours he put the insurance company in their place along with their lawyer and secured me a substantial payout!!

I would recommend Hall Payne Lawyers to anyone in a similar situation. DO NOT be intimidated by the antics of insurance companies, as they will do anything to rid themselves of a claim. Indi and the whole team at Hall Payne Hobart made the situation easy for me!!

THANKYOU Indi Gunadasa And Hall Payne.

I am so pleased that Kris was kind enough to take my matter, it was a stressful time for me but Kris took control and handled it all so professionally. And I would like to add she was well worth the fee.

I had a tough case against opponents with much deeper pockets than myself. I contacted other law firms that you see advertising. They all said my case was either two difficult or I did not have a case at all. By chance Megan Stanley of Hall Payne solicitors was recommended. Megan looked at my case and said she would be happy to act for me. In the end I was awarded a favourable settlement. Megan and her team make you feel from the outset that she is a top level solicitor with a very capable team backing her. I would not hesitate to recommend Hall Payne to anyone.

I had the pleasure of working with Craig Joshua to help me with my fairly complicated workers compensation matter, and I do not think I could have found better support during this difficult time for me. Craig not only put together a watertight case, but he was always there when I had a question and took me patiently through the whole process from start to finish. On top of that, he went above and beyond by giving me advice how my claim would affect other proceedings and vice versa, which I am grateful for. The icing on the cake was of course the big win at the end!

After injuring my back at work, Hall Payne Lawyers helped me to lodge two TPD claims with two different insurers; both claims were accepted and paid. Without their assistance, I do not believe either claim would have been successful.

When making a TPD claim, there are many pitfalls and traps for the uninitiated to fall into. Simple mistakes can lead to a claim being delayed or rejected. In my opinion, it really is worth paying for the assistance of an experienced professional (especially when their services are offered on a "no win, no fee" basis). Also, in light of the amount of work they put into my claims, I believe Hall Payne's professional fees were very reasonable.

I am highly satisfied with the assistance I received from Hall Payne Lawyers. I have no hesitation in recommending their services to anyone ill or injured who is considering lodging a TPD claim.

I am very grateful to Leanne [Taylor] for helping me to acquire Australian Citizenship;  I needed to apply for the Ministers Discretion due to the complexity of my case.  Leanne guided me through the various processes I needed to follow and the identification of all the (about 40) documents I needed to submit.  I found Leanne's knowledge of Immigration Law to be excellent and I am very grateful to her for her assistance.  Mine was a complex case and Leanne was very helpful in putting my case to the Immigration Department.

If requested I would have no hesitation in referring Hall and Payne's Immigration Services to anyone who came to me for such advice.

Yours sincerely, Lynda F

In 2018, following a workplace accident and excess pressures from my workplace and their insurer, I was referred to Hall Payne Lawyers by representatives at the CEPU (Communications, Electrical and Plumbers Union) to guide me through the pitfalls of the Workers' Compensation system. During this process, which involved a lot of scrutiny of my injury by the Employer/Insurer, Hall Payne, in particular Indi Gunadasa and his team were invaluable with their guidance, empathy and encouragement, which lead to a successful outcome.

Henry and his team worked tirelessly to achieve a fair result for me, this being for a claim against the Insurance Company and Employer. After suffering a head injury onsite, my claim was dismissed by a very one sided Neurologist. Hall Payne Lawyers were recommended by the ETU. Henry Pill was able to assemble the Subject Matter Experts who ruled in favour of me. Henry achieved a fair settlement for me allowing me to move on and get my health back in order. They were reasonable with costs, and also their experience was valuable in negotiations. Highly recommended.

Kris Birch was my Lawyer from Hall Payne Lawyers and she was absolutely brilliant. I found Kris to be very personable and realistic in how she approached my case individually and she left no stone unturned to get me the best possible outcome with my legal matter. Kris has a lot of knowledge over many facets of law areas which is quite evident after talking to her and has a lot of networking contacts that she can call on at any given time if required. Kris will always give the worst case scenario and is very transparent of what she can and can't achieve with your individual situation. I honestly can't recommend Kris highly enough and have already spoken about her to other colleagues and friends and won't hesitate in referring her to others as I know she was there during a very scary time in my life and without her professional guidance I can only wonder where I'd be now instead of remaining gainfully employed with respect from my peers and management.

I would personally like to thank you, M/s Baiba Thomas, Mr Craig Joshua & M/s Alex Rogers [Hall Payne Sydney office] for their Continued Support over the last 12 months.

As you are all aware I had my Court case on July, 1, 2020.

The Arbitrator made a decision without any doubts in our favour. This was because M/s Thomas had ORGANISED, SUPPLIED all the right information & Documents, covered all her bases, including having lengthy conversations with my barrister Mr Jon TRAINOR, who spoke very well on the day.

M/s Thomas had undoubtedly made it very hard for the Arbitrator to say NO, granting us Approval. The arbitrator said on the day that they would normally take  2-3 weeks to give an answer, this is why we got the approval in 7 days not 3 weeks

This will change my life, my wife and my children. Financially & mental wellbeing.

Even my Parents may speak to me again once I give them back their money.

From the bottom of my heart, it’s been a very difficult year, now I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. THANKS for fighting for me & my Family, you have saved us in so many directions.

Yours Sincerely, Mark G

Before we started our immigration journey to acquire permanent residency in Australia for my American husband, we were tentative and cautious about the heavy administrative load ahead of us. However, Leanne Taylor supported us in such a confident and professional manner every step of the way. We contacted Leanne while we were still residing in the States and asked her to represent us in our spousal visa application. Leanne very capably had the majority of the paperwork organised in a timely manner on our arrival in Australia.  Leanne adopts a fine balance that seems to work between demonstrating enthusiasm for our cause along with a measured, pragmatic approach to each task. It all appears seamless but we appreciate she worked tirelessly to advance our process. We would recommend her to anyone that needs an immigration service in Australia as she always responds promptly in every correspondence with a cheerful, efficient attitude. We are very pleased that Leanne represented us.

Dear Sir/Madam,

I would like to share my experience with Hall Payne Lawyers I have had over the past 12 months or more.

I was injured at work and through my Union (Australian Maritime Officers Union), I was advised to contact Hall Payne Lawyers.

I was first introduced to a Lawyer in Sydney, and it was obvious as my injury occurred in the Northern Territory, a Lawyer with expertise in N.T. legislation was required.

Andrew Smith (from Hall Payne Lawyers – Darwin) was the Lawyer who was assigned to me to navigated me through this minefield of facts and language which I did not know a thing about, I could not say enough about his patience and knowledge of my compensation case.

I felt very comfortable with Andrew as he explained in detail all the relevant issues which would come up during this sometimes frustrating time in my life.

And in the end, he was just about spot-on in his assessment of what the financial outcome would be.

Hopefully, I will not need legal representation in the future, but if I was to need it, I would not hesitate but to be in touch with Hall Payne Lawyers.

It has been an experience that I never expected to have to go through,  but there has been some benefits of this situation.  I reflect daily on my nursing decisions and the potential implications of same.

Really wanted to give a very loud shout out to Leanne and the Firm for all done and accomplished in seeing my wife and two children successfully granted Australian PR. In early 2016 I was given Leanne’s details and advised that she would be the right person to assist me in this somewhat daunting process. Well, it happened, but not without her patience, guidance,persistence & professionalism every step of the way. Ours was not the easiest of cases & at times proved somewhat frustrating to say the least, however Leanne successfully pulled the family over the finishing line..........Next stop, Citizenship......good thing there’s a years break Leanne, your not rid of us yet....Thanks so much for ALL you’ve done for all of us. Have a great Festive Season, catch up early/mid 2020.

My opponent was the Minister for Health and I needed the best representation that exists. I was fighting against corruption, dishonesty and unfair dismissal. Under cross examination of the Ministers’ ‘star witness’ I observed Mr. Gunadasa take command of the domain. Like a French swordsman who struck an ill-equipped amateur, it was a performance I will never forget. My opponent underestimated Indi and was unable to survive the scrutiny and psychological superiority that Mr. Gunadasa displayed.

Mr Gunadasa turned a ‘he said/she said’ into a ‘she said/he bled’. Indi exhibited such skill and expertise in the art of cross examination that what was to be my opponents time in the spotlight, quickly turned into a mesmerizing spectacle of humiliation. After Indi completed his cross examination, the silence was so deafening, the only sound you could hear was the loud hustle of the disgraced ‘star witness’ as his trousers loudly hustled out of the room. It was brutal, it was humiliating, it was art. Mr Indi Gunadasa has always been by my side as my legal counsel when I needed representation. He is a hardworking legal genius who gave excellent advice. He proved that I was telling the truth.

People believed me, and knew that I was an honest hardworking health professional and that I had indeed come up against something very nasty. I felt vindicated by Mr. Gunadasa exposing those who had lied. Don’t risk substandard representation with inferior faulty advice. Go nuclear with Hall Payne Lawyers. The best in Tasmania.
