Reviews for Hall Payne Hobart
In 2018, following a workplace accident and excess pressures from my workplace and their insurer, I was referred to Hall Payne Lawyers by representatives at the CEPU (Communications, Electrical and Plumbers Union) to guide me through the pitfalls of the Workers' Compensation system. During this process, which involved a lot of scrutiny of my injury by the Employer/Insurer, Hall Payne, in particular Indi Gunadasa and his team were invaluable with their guidance, empathy and encouragement, which lead to a successful outcome.
Henry and his team worked tirelessly to achieve a fair result for me, this being for a claim against the Insurance Company and Employer. After suffering a head injury onsite, my claim was dismissed by a very one sided Neurologist. Hall Payne Lawyers were recommended by the ETU. Henry Pill was able to assemble the Subject Matter Experts who ruled in favour of me. Henry achieved a fair settlement for me allowing me to move on and get my health back in order. They were reasonable with costs, and also their experience was valuable in negotiations. Highly recommended.
Thank-you Indi. Your professional service and compassion is second to none. We would have no apprehension in recommending Indi's service for work-place injury compensation to anyone in need. He provided good quality service, was responsive to our concerns. All this quality service at a very reasonable price. Jen & Garry
Indi and the team recently provided me with support and advice on a complex matter. Indi's ability to understand the key issues and considerations and communicate these in a straight forward, practical and fit for purpose manner proved to be most useful. His personable yet professional approach was most welcome. I would highly recommend Indi and Hall Payne.
Indi Gundasa from Hall Payne helped me settle a workers compensation claim. At every step he was helpful in explaining the process clearly and what needed to be done (and how long it would take). I found Indi friendly and professional, and the charges to settle the matter reasonable. Would recommend.
I was very pleased to be introduced to Hall Payne Lawyers Hobart through my Union for my Workers Compensation claim . Indi ,Henri and Leonie are true professionals in the legal field all my questions and concerns where explained to me in language I could understand and I was more than pleased with my claim outcome. To me this company is my go to company should I need further legal advise.
I had a phone conference with Indi after suffering injuries in a bike accident. Indi was personable, professional and honest with his advice. He explained the legal position clearly and offered a number of actions as well as further assistance should I need it. I was going to seek a second opinion but after speaking with Indi, I decided I didn't need to.
