I can't speak highly enough of Lily at the Hobart office. She was super helpful and informative when I was having a tough time with a workers compensation issue. 100% recommend.

Going through the Workers Compensation process is really awful. It is soul destroying. I could not be more thankful for my lawyer Indi Gunadasa and his team. Without him I am sure I would not have had as good of a result. It is a battle in which you want people both proficient and kind to be on your side. Thankyou

After having a workplace injury, and then having workers compensation insurance reject my claim, Henry acted on my behalf and successfully won my case through meditation.
Couldn't recommend him more!
