Hall Payne Lawyers are a guiding light when you have to deal with a difficult situation such as the loss of a loved one. Philip and Tammy did an amazing job organising our late father's estate for us.

Thank you so much for all of your hard work. We highly recommend Hall Payne Lawyers.

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

Philip Anthony is a professional and highly experienced solicitor and is a valuable member of the HPL team. I am confident in recommending him, without hesitation.

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.

Kris Birch and the team at Hall Payne Lawyers were amazing when I required their services for a stressfull employment matter recently.

Kris and Maddy were down to earth, a wealth of knowlege and very attentive to the details that gave me the trust and confidence in Kris that ultimately ended with her dominating the proceedings in impressive fashion.

Thanks again Kris and the team at Hall Payne Lawyers for the great result ๐Ÿ‘ ๐Ÿ‘
