She ensures her clients receive all the support they need to achieve the best outcome.

It was a pleasure to deal with Hall Payne Lawyers for our personal wills.

In particular Mr. Ian Kelly who made it easy to navigate through the documents and interacted with us to suit our needs.

In my late 30’s self employed professional, I fell from grace, bankrupt, lost my health, my career and my marriage. Hall Payne was the shining light for me through these very dark times, the better part of 5 years in which they took the helm and left no stone unturned.

The result: three successful claims (2TPD & 1IP) the best possible outcome and an absolutely outstanding law firm to deal with. Special thanks to Leanne: Her diligence to handle all the complexities that occurred along the way was infallible and I am forever grateful for her support. Highly Recommend ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
