To Joe and Brooke 

After suffering a work place injury with my employer, one of the largest multi national companies in the world, didn’t waste time in making life very difficult for me, started to attack my workplace rights as well as given me unreasonable directions. 

This is when I meet Joe Kennedy from Hall Payne. 

Joe was understanding and compassionate about my position but most importantly he was absolutely honest on where I was at. 

Over the next 3 years Joe helped me manoeuvre the many legal and industrial mine fields that was laid out before me. He always offered the best options. Joe  listened to my concerns and desired outcomes and set about achieving those for me. 

Personally I can’t thank Joe enough for all the hard work he has done, no matter what time of day or night Joe would always reply to my messages, emails and calls and delivering the best possible outcome given the circumstances. 

Without Joe I wouldn’t have stood a chance against the Goliath I worked for. Joe is most definitely the man to have in your corner. 

Thank you Brooke for all your help over the last few years too such a amazing firm.

Kind regards, Nadine

I would highly recommend Tim and Luke at Hall Payne. Not only did they provide expert advice and representation, but were understanding of the emotional stress of the situation and showed genuine care and compassion.

I highly recommend Hall and Payne. Tim gave me sound, expert legal advice and the matter was settled very quickly with a positive outcome. The professional approach of all of the staff helped to expedite the outcome and to avoid the stress of a protracted process. Thank you to all involved.

I would highly recommend the team at Hall Payne Lawyers to support you and deal with those unreasonable non compete enforcement orders from the previous employer. Luke, Tim and the team are very thorough in their approach to keep you calm and optimistic of a favourable process. My advice is to be prepared to do some detailed work yourself to assist the team put together a rock solid case against these orders.

Hall Payne were referred to me after some serious searching....quoting "you want these guys in your corner" for these matters.

Very happy with their work and the outcome.

Hi; I was issued with a Court Attendance notice; so through my Union traffic fund was contacted with Hall Payne Lawyers to take over my case and had Time Grellman to represent me and take to Court;

From beginning Tim gave me confidence in communicating via email, phone calls and lately in person; all this communications were very satisfactory and answers professionally and right away, then the day in Court he look after me,

I am very happy with his professionalism and personality not to mention the outcome. Thanks Tim and Hall Payne Lawyers
