When I had some difficulty with a work issue I had to use a Lawyer for the first time and was recommended Kris Birch was wonderful. She was honest and gave me the advice and spent time talking me through all the finer details of the issue.

Kris helped me get the best result and would definitely recommend Kris and if I need to, I would definitely use her legal brain again. Thank You Kris

Leanne has helped my family and me through the AAT review. She has displayed professionalism in her work and always offered true and genuine advices. Her experiences with the AAT has also helped and guided us in many possible ways that you can imagine. It would be daunting without her assistance along the way. Great thank you to Leanne and her firm.

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 engaged Hall Payne Lawyers to represent me in my employment dispute. Ellie Bassingthwaite was faultless in her advice, her patience and her genuine care and concern for me as her client. I would have no hesitation in recommending Hall Payne or in using them again if I find myself in a similar situation.
