Reviews for Hall Payne Brisbane
Very professional and supportive law firm. Responsive and courteous, highly recommend their services.
My lawyer Kris and her team - was exactly what my case needed. Kris is beyond knowledgeable and is a strong and confident personality that I would not like to be up against in a court room - and because of that she was able to find success at conciliation instead.
I am very grateful to Leanne [Taylor] for helping me to acquire Australian Citizenship; I needed to apply for the Ministers Discretion due to the complexity of my case. Leanne guided me through the various processes I needed to follow and the identification of all the (about 40) documents I needed to submit. I found Leanne's knowledge of Immigration Law to be excellent and I am very grateful to her for her assistance. Mine was a complex case and Leanne was very helpful in putting my case to the Immigration Department.
If requested I would have no hesitation in referring Hall and Payne's Immigration Services to anyone who came to me for such advice.
Yours sincerely, Lynda F
It was a absolute pleasure to deal with and watch such professionals at work. Our experience was very top class and very highly recommended.
Ellie Bassingthwaighte from Hall Payne Lawyers was sensational. She provided excellent support and diligently worked during the proceedings. She supplied exemplary advice, let alone, her maturity and calm was Zen-like, which in times of stress is extremely valuable. Ellie and her team were always helpful and appear to work tirelessly, maintaining an unwavering purpose of getting the best outcome for you, their client. I would also like to thank John Payne and Joe Kennedy for providing me with an effective, driven professional such as Ellie. Cheers Steve
I can't speak highly enough of not only Cameron an Cale but especially Cale who has worked so hard to obtain the best outcome ever possible for me. But also for the whole of Hall/Payne who have shown nothing but complete professinalism throughout my entire case. I would have no hesitation to recommend anyone needing legal help to do them self's a favour an Call them . They are the best.
Alexander Williams was my lawyer from Hall Payne lawyer’s, and he was excellent, from my first free consolation to the moment we stepped in the court room, as it was a stressful situation for myself Alex always seemed calm through the whole process, very knowledgeable and professional in the way he approached my case, would have no dramas recommending Alex or his firm to represent anybody. I can’t thank Alex enough and his firm as now I can move on from this stressful and scary time in my life. Thank you Alex and Hall and Payne
Kris Birch was my Lawyer from Hall Payne Lawyers and she was absolutely brilliant. I found Kris to be very personable and realistic in how she approached my case individually and she left no stone unturned to get me the best possible outcome with my legal matter. Kris has a lot of knowledge over many facets of law areas which is quite evident after talking to her and has a lot of networking contacts that she can call on at any given time if required. Kris will always give the worst case scenario and is very transparent of what she can and can't achieve with your individual situation. I honestly can't recommend Kris highly enough and have already spoken about her to other colleagues and friends and won't hesitate in referring her to others as I know she was there during a very scary time in my life and without her professional guidance I can only wonder where I'd be now instead of remaining gainfully employed with respect from my peers and management.
