I engaged Hall Payne Lawyers to represent me in my employment dispute. Ellie Bassingthwaite was faultless in her advice, her patience and her genuine care and concern for me as her client. I would have no hesitation in recommending Hall Payne or in using them again if I find myself in a similar situation.

This firm represented my partner after an accident. Cale is not only great at what he does, but a down to earth good guy. If the need ever arises I would definitely use their services again. Highly recommend.

Thankyou to both Cale Fryer and Jaclyn Green for their thorough diligence and professional work. They both consulted with me on the specifics of what is to be expected and guided me through an ordeal that was not a comfortable experience, by doing this it made the ordeal manageable. I found them to be educational but approachable. Direct but kind. Driven but tolerant and patient through my hard times. I would recommend both Cale and Jaclyn to other individuals who are having Social Injustice matters or that may be in need of a genuinely professional Solicitor. Thankyou very much Kerri
