Research Clerk

Raul is currently completing his dual Bachelor of Arts/Laws Degree (majoring in philosophy and international relations) at the University of Queensland.

Raul is passionate about helping people navigate the complexities of personal injury law, whether that be related to:

  • worker’s compensation claims;
  • road accident compensation claims;
  • abuse claims;
  • medical negligence; or
  • public liability claims.

He is dedicated to ensuring his clients are fairly compensated.

“I have heard numerous stories from individuals who were injured but unaware of their rights until it was too late. Injuries can be life-changing, and although compensation will rarely reverse the impact of one’s injury, it is important to achieve justice and restore dignity to those that were negligently injured.

Similarly, it is also important to hold employers and institutions accountable for their duties of care. I am very lucky to be working with one of Australia’s premier personal injury teams and to be helping some of Australia’s most vulnerable workers.”

Outside of work, Raul enjoys reading philosophy and theology, watching football, and baking pizzas in his portable pizza oven!

I cannot recommend Hall Payne Lawyers highly enough.

Throughout my case, Alexandra was incredibly responsive, always available to answer my questions and provide updates. She took the time to explain complex legal concepts in a way that was easy to understand, ensuring I felt comfortable and informed every step of the way.

Alexandra’s professionalism, attention to detail, and strategic thinking were key in achieving a favorable outcome for my case.

Ellie and her team at Hall Payne Lawyers were an absolute lifeline during a challenging legal process. From the moment they started working, I felt understood and supported.

Ellie's sensitivity to my feelings made all the difference as she guided me through every step of the journey.

Hall Payne Lawyers expertise and dedication ensured that I felt empowered and informed throughout. I can't thank Ellie and her team enough for their professionalism, empathy, and unwavering support.

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 😊
