Luke Tiley sought first to understand. He was thorough and considered in his approach to my matters and provided options, carefully detailing potential advantages and disadvantages of options. This was done without fuss and with a refreshing honesty. He maintained a professional, style with a respectful approach. I appreciated his frank authenticity and his expedient efficient way of dealing with complexity.

Luke understood me as a person and the situation I found myself in, leading me ultimately to a positive resolve in relation to the matters I faced. His interventions made a difficult situation resolvable. If you are seeking efficient, client focussed authentic counsel and support in relation to employment issues, I highly recommend Luke Tiley whose experience, efficiency and commitment to my cause, was abundantly apparent.

Kris Birch handled an unfair dismissal case for me through my union. Kris was retained only a few days before the case went to conciliation. I was very impressed by Kris' ability to have a full and complete understanding of my case with only a few days to prepare. Kris took the time to explain the intricacy's of the legal process to me and answer any questions I had. The eventual settlement was much better than I had expected. I truly believe that I would not have received such a good outcome had Kris not been representing me. If anyone I knew were in need of an employment law specialist, I would strongly recommend they use Hall and Payne lawyers.
