Cale Fryer is a Principal at Hall Payne, working in the personal compensation, disability and superannuation teams. Cale works from our Brisbane office and is admitted to practice in Queensland and the High Court of Australia.
“My clients are down-to-earth hard-working people whose livelihoods have been adversely impacted due to another’s negligence,” says Cale.
“I wanted to become a lawyer to fight injustice and make a real difference to peoples’ lives.”
Cale regularly appears in the Queensland Industrial Relations Commission and the Supreme and District Courts of Queensland. He is a member of the Australian Lawyers Alliance and the Queensland Law Society.
Cale’s most satisfying cases were Martin v Andrews and Anor (2016) QSC 20 and McGuigan v Workers’ Compensation Regulator (2017) QIRC 036.
In McGuigan v Workers’ Compensation Regulator, the Queensland Industrial Relations Commission (QIRC) found that inaccurate training and directions provided to Mr McGuigan, an underground miner, caused his psychological injury. They rejected arguments from the Workers’ Compensation Regulator that those directions amounted to reasonable management action undertaken in a reasonable way.
In Martin v Andrews, the Queensland Supreme Court awarded a former electrician in excess of $1.28 million in damages for injuries sustained in a motor vehicle accident on 1 July 2011. The judgment by Justice Duncan McMeekin was, at the time, considered to be the highest compensation in any jurisdiction in Australia for a non-catastrophically injured electrician.
Reviews for Hall Payne Brisbane
Excellent lawyers, would recommend these lawyers to anyone and everyone. Great communication between them and their clients. Excellent work 👏 thank you for working with us 😊
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.
It was a great pleasure for me to have Jennifer and dear Ms Virne as my Lawyers in this process.
I would like to express my most sincere gratitude to you and dear Juliana as my esteemed lawyers.
I wish all the best for you.
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 👍 👏
