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!

I recently engaged Hall Payne Lawyers to run my workers compensation case and was impressed from the very start. From those initial words of reassurance right through to the final stages of reaching a successful outcome the HPL team was amazing. Craig Joshua, solicitor, was professional in every respect. He was thorough and always kept me informed of what was going on. Nothing was too much trouble. Alexandra Rogers did an amazing job providing paralegal support. With this journey now behind me I can highly recommend Hall Payne Lawyers.
