I had the best experience, was represented by an incredible Solicitor, Baiba Thomas. Baiba and her team worked extremely hard to ensure I would get the justice deserved.

I wish to thank immensely Baiba, Alexandra, Esra and top Knotch Barrister Mr J Trainer.

I highly recommend Hall Payne Lawyers.

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!
