Megan Stanley

Senior Associate

My clients are deserving and honest. They come to me to help prove wrongdoing.

Megan Stanley brings extensive experience in personal compensation law to Hall Payne’s Brisbane office. She initially worked in regional Queensland before obtaining a position in a large UK legal practice. 

In the UK she gained exposure to a range of legal matters, including personal compensation litigation.

Since returning home, Megan has continued to practice solely in personal compensation law; an area of litigation about which she remains passionate.

“My clients are deserving and honest,” she says.

“They come to me to help prove wrongdoing.”

Megan is committed to achieving the best outcome for her clients. In many cases, this requires strong negotiation to settle a matter out of court.

“My goal is to obtain an appropriate settlement so my clients can take control of their lives, and make the choices that are right for them.”

Megan is admitted as a solicitor of the Supreme Court of Queensland, the Supreme Court of England and Wales, and the High Court of Australia.  She is a member of the Queensland Law Society and Australian Lawyers Alliance.

In Megan’s free time, the outdoors beckons. She loves motorcycle riding, climbing, hiking and camping and also enjoys socialising with friends over great food and wine.
