I can't speak highly enough of Lily at the Hobart office. She was super helpful and informative when I was having a tough time with a workers compensation issue. 100% recommend.

Going through the Workers Compensation process is really awful. It is soul destroying. I could not be more thankful for my lawyer Indi Gunadasa and his team. Without him I am sure I would not have had as good of a result. It is a battle in which you want people both proficient and kind to be on your side. Thankyou

After having a workplace injury, and then having workers compensation insurance reject my claim, Henry acted on my behalf and successfully won my case through meditation.
Couldn't recommend him more!

I would highly recommend Indi Gunadasa from Hall and Payne. His knowledge and skills in workplace law are exceptional. He was honest, trustworthy,  compassionate and reliable.

Indi's legal advice was correct from the beginning to the end of this process and he achieved a great outcome.

If you have been treated unfairly, unjustly or illegally in the workplace, my advice would be to ring Indi immediately and take his legal advice and if needed employ him to defend you. Not only was Indi amazing in the process all the way through, his legal skills in the mediation were impressive and a very positive outcome for me as his client.

I highly recommend Indi and Hall and Payne Lawyers. Exceptional service, skills and professionalism form early stages to completion. Thank you, Indi!

I want to thank Indi at Hall Payne lawyers for helping me during a very emotional and stressful time. Indi's compassion, expertise and experience guided me through my worker's compensation claim and I could concentrate on my recovery.

Being an 'older' worker had challenges of it's own but Indi was reassuring as I was just ready to waIk away.

The Insurance Company requested an 'Independent' doctors report which was completely negative even though all medical MRI's etc confirmed the injury was ongoing - all weekly payments was abruptly stopped. He assured me my case was good, gave me time frames, explained the process and that he would walk the road with me. True to his word all went according to how Indi explained the process.

As I had to survive financially on Holiday pay, long service leave and built up sick leave I was concerned about payment for services but Indi said Hall Payne Lawyers offer 'NO win NO pay' and the fees were so affordable contrary to what people say. 

I would urge anyone to not be 'scared off' by the Insurance Companies or their 'Independent Doctors' and get in touch with Indi Gunadasa at Hall Payne Lawyers.

Thank you again Indi and your team for making my journey less stressful.
