Thankyou Indi At Hall Payne lawyers. Indi helped me settle my worker’s compensation claim for a shoulder injury that happened at my place of work. I am in Launceston so never actually got to meet Indi in person but all contact was through phone and emails due to covid as well as distance.

Indi listened to me and at no time did I feel I was not going to settle my claim without a good outcome. We settled last month and it was a huge weight lifted .

He also gave me advice for the future. My biggest regret was not meeting Indi in person but maybe one day that may happen. I recommend Indi and his team for the service I received. He was Awesome 👏

I have just been through a traumatic experience with a work related compensation injury and Hall Payne lawyers and staff helped tremendously with explaining procedures and process of my claim.

They kept me informed about the situation and kept me from loosing my mind over the two year process. Thank you SO much

The most amazing law firm !! I can’t reccomend highly enough ! 👏🏻👏🏻

Indie constantly phoned me and chatted away giving full explanations and options and reassurance. Honest and reliable service. Everything done for me was to the utmost professionalism with friendly staff, my incredible lawyer Indie and also my wonderful barrister and constant call backs if I had an enquiry .

They supported me every step of the way with a personalised experience and never rushed a phone call but took the time to make sure I was personally going ok and understood everything at each stage and In between. I felt I was cared for and that my case and more importantly myself was also important and understood . I was not just a number.

There was nothing hidden it was all upfront and explained and proved by my end result that they are a genuine and significant law firm.

Everything was made easy for me and easy to understand. I cannot thank them enough for their guidance professionalism and kindness. Even after my case was finalised I still received a call from Indie making sure things were ok and good and offering some more options and advice to help me along after settlement had happened.

I truly cannot thank them enough. I am forever grateful.

I was recommended to Hall Payne Lawyers by my sister in law who found their services invaluable. Henry was compassionate and understanding from the very first phone call. His professionalism and work saw me through a very tough 3 weeks, and thankfully we won the case. I could not recommend Henry and the team enough, very professional and affordable.

I would just like to thank Hall Payne Lawyers in Hobart and a big special thankyou to Indi Gunadasa my legal representative for assisting me to obtain my long service leave that I was entitled to but was consistently told I was not entitled to pro rata, Indi worked along with me to obtain this.

My husband Mark and myself would not hesitate to use this company should we ever need further legal advise.

Denise and Mark
