Senior Associate

Andrew is a seasoned personal injury lawyer based in our Brisbane CBD office, with extensive experience in worker’s compensation, public liability, motor vehicle accidents, intentional tort, and institutional abuse matters across multiple Australian jurisdictions.

He has broad expertise across an extensive range of matters, including those involving complex liability issues and catastrophic injuries, regularly appearing or instructing in the Supreme Court of Queensland.

Andrew has been dedicated to supporting the rights of injured people and advocating for fair outcomes throughout his career and has years of experience collaborating with trade unions, victim support groups, and other advocacy bodies to promote justice for those who need it most.

He has advocated strongly for the rights of claimants within Queensland’s many statutory compensation schemes, such as the Worker’s Compensation Scheme and National Injury Insurance Scheme Queensland (NIISQ). Andrew is often passionately involved in lobbying for further protections for those who are unable to work because of their injuries.

“It doesn’t sit well with me that some who are incredible contributors to our society are sometimes forgotten when they need our support the most – like Solomon Islands man, Eric Vavaki, catastrophically injured in a road accident in south east Queensland.”

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. 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 👍 👏
