Huia Azimi


Huia Azimi is an Associate at Hall Payne Lawyers, heading the Sydney personal injury team. Huia completed her Arts and Law degrees at Macquarie University (Macq) in 2002 and is admitted to both the Supreme Court of NSW and the High Court of Australia.

Huia speaks fluent Dari (which is Persian or synonymously Farsi, a variation of the Persian language) and spent many years working as a Registered Migration Agent.

Huia has a wealth of experience advising workers who have injured themselves at work and helping people navigate the everchanging NSW workers compensation scheme. She also has experience in claims involving public liability, motor vehicle accidents, superannuation law and matters involving medical negligence.

Before joining Hall Payne, Huia worked at a private compensation law firm in Sydney. Prior to that, she also ran her own business as a sole practitioner predominately specialising in litigation, family law, personal injury and migration law. Huia spent many years on the Family Law and Civil Law Legal Aid Panel of NSW.

“I am passionate about helping those that cannot help themselves, using my knowledge and experience of the law in an honourable way. I like to keep my clients constantly informed and empowered throughout the process of their matter and to achieve results.”

Huia especially enjoys helping clients obtain the threshold of 15% Whole Person Impairment, (“WPI”) in workers compensation matters by combining impairment from differing body systems. She has advocacy experience in most New South Wales courts and tribunals.

Huia is an approved legal service provider for the Workers Compensation Independent Review Office (WIRO) and a member of the NSW Law Society and Amnesty International.

Huia has volunteered at the Mount Druitt Legal Centre (domestic violence and victims’ compensation) and in her spare time enjoys playing the piano and taking her four children to the beach.
