Thank you Jessica Hodge! What a superstar! My experience with Jessica and Hall Payne was at all times one of dealing with consummate professionals.

Jessica over delivered at every turn. She provided solid, pragmatic advice and is sharp as a tack! She saw me through to the Qld Industrial Relations Commission and with her impeccable guidance I received a positive outcome. More importantly to me, I felt validated and vindicated.

I had a complex employment matter that had to go initially to the Fair Work Commission. My lawyer Luke Tiley was in every sense awesome in his advocacy, swift & incisive in his response, professional and incredibly talented as an employment lawyer.

I would definitely recommend this firm, and especially Luke Tiley for any employment matter you may have. 5 stars plus.

I had a tough case against opponents with much deeper pockets than myself. I contacted other law firms that you see advertising. They all said my case was either two difficult or I did not have a case at all. By chance Megan Stanley of Hall Payne solicitors was recommended. Megan looked at my case and said she would be happy to act for me. In the end I was awarded a favourable settlement. Megan and her team make you feel from the outset that she is a top level solicitor with a very capable team backing her. I would not hesitate to recommend Hall Payne to anyone. Thanks again for everything, job well done. Jason.

When I had some difficulty with a work issue I had to use a Lawyer for the first time and was recommended Kris Birch was wonderful. She was honest and gave me the advice and spent time talking me through all the finer details of the issue.

Kris helped me get the best result and would definitely recommend Kris and if I need to, I would definitely use her legal brain again. Thank You Kris

Leanne has helped my family and me through the AAT review. She has displayed professionalism in her work and always offered true and genuine advices. Her experiences with the AAT has also helped and guided us in many possible ways that you can imagine. It would be daunting without her assistance along the way. Great thank you to Leanne and her firm.
