Thankyou to both Cale Fryer and Jaclyn Green for their thorough diligence and professional work. They both consulted with me on the specifics of what is to be expected and guided me through an ordeal that was not a comfortable experience, by doing this it made the ordeal manageable. I found them to be educational but approachable. Direct but kind. Driven but tolerant and patient through my hard times. I would recommend both Cale and Jaclyn to other individuals who are having Social Injustice matters or that may be in need of a genuinely professional Solicitor. Thankyou very much Kerri

I would like to give Kris Birch and Sarah Cavanagh a '5 star review' based on their promptness and due diligence. Kris Birch’s performance in court was outstanding and supplied me with the best outcome, if I could give a 12/10 I would.

What an amazing experience, with not only an amazing team but a sensational Lawyer. The Hall Payne Lawyers and especially Kalina were knowledgeable, informing and most importantly supportive. The response to my questions, and retrospectively nervous queries provided my with the ability to feel positive during this time. Highly recommended team.

I engaged Hall Payne to provide advice on some questions I had regarding a contract and their service was prompt and helpful. Ellie was able to explain the scenarios and provide helpful advice to allow me to make an informed decision. Overall a very good experience. Would recommend to other people looking for support regarding employment contract advice.
