Very highly recommend !

Jaclyn Green and Cale Fryer were very understanding and supportive. They showed empathy and compassion and I felt very comfortable opening up to them about my case and how I was feeling at different stages throughout my case.

Cale was very personal and I knew that he genuinely cared about my health first and foremost. Very professional approach to my case and very reassuring. After every conversation I had with Cale I felt more and more confident that my case was going to have a good outcome which in the end it did.

I have told many people about my experience and the satisfaction I felt at the end of my case after working with the team at Hall Payne Lawyers. I highly recommend the professional team at Hall Payne Lawyers.

Leanne Taylor was of great assistance and instrumental in the successful sponsorship and employment of our newest team member.

I highly recommend Leanne for guidance and assistance during this process and will utilise her services should we pursue sponsorship of future employees.

We had a very pleasing experience with Cale from Hall Payne Lawyers. Going through a personal injury matter is stressful but I always felt confident with Hall Payne. They were extremely informative, supportive and reassured us when we needed it.

Over all I highly recommend them for any matter. Thankyou Cale and Jaclyn

I had reached out to the team at Hall Payne and was so lucky to have Jessie help me. She was professional and amiable but more importantly got the job done effectively and kept me in the loop along the way.

Making a crappy situation with a dodgy car yard a much easier situation to deal with! Thank you 😊

I’d just like thank Kris Birch from Hall Payne lawyers in Brisbane for the outstanding service she provided on a couple of matters for me and my children.

Firstly on my daughters DV matter, I believe she went over and above what any other person would have done, I appreciate her treating my daughter with decency and respect and for being there for her when her mother should of been, for this I have so much respect for you and I know Chloe does too, and achieving a fantastic outcome was a bonus.

What can I say about mine and my son’s case? Without you in our corner I know we would have been victims too this unjust world we live in, thanks for believing in us and standing up for us.

And I’d also like to thank you for all your support, advice, messages and numerous phone calls with me whilst dealing with my marriage separation, it’s been a rough few years but I’m nearly on the other side, without you I never would have got there, you mean more to me and my children than just our lawyer, you are an inspiration a friend and sorry to tell you but you are part of our family 💚,

So thanks again for everything you’ve done for us and for being the best lawyer in Brisbane.
