Solicitor

Tim Grellman is a lawyer in Hall Payne’s employment and industrial relations team. He works in our Sydney office.

After graduating from Macquarie University, Tim worked as an Associate to Vice President Catanzariti AM of the Fair Work Commission. Working on some of Australia’s largest industrial disputes at the Fair Work Commission triggered a passion for employment law and industrial relations.

Before joining Hall Payne, Tim practiced employment and industrial relations law at a law firm in Sydney for three years.

Practicing employment law has exposed me to the inherent power imbalance that exists in industrial relations in Australia. I am committed to doing my bit to address this imbalance.

I’m passionate about advocating for the rights of working Australians, striving for social justice and achieving a fair and successful outcome for my clients.

Tim is a member of the New South Wales Law Society and the Workplace and Safety Law Committee of the New South Wales Young Lawyers. He volunteers for and raises money for the Public Education Foundation of Australia by competing in charity runs.

Outside work, Tim continues to captain Macquarie University’s 5th grade Sydney Shires cricket team. He also enjoys supporting the South Sydney Rabbitohs, going to the beach and travelling.

Many thanks to Craig Joshua of Hall Payne Lawyers and their professional services regarding my Workers Compensation Claim dispute.  My questions were responded to immediately with explanations that I fully understood.  I really appreciate the support that was provided and I am overwhelmed by the positive outcome.

Just a “short” note to thank you and your team for getting me a positive result from my claim with “ICare”.

Although I had a genuine work-place accident I really didn’t know what to do next after it was disputed.  Your explanation of the process, follow up, and prompt replies to my questions were excellent.  Both myself and my wife Annie (whose health isn’t the best) are very grateful for your diligence and things, I hope, will be a lot better for us, all thanks to your team at Hall Payne and Charmaine (C.F.M.E.U.) Townsville Qld) recommending your legal firm.  Please pass on my heartfelt thanks to all concerned.

I will keep you informed of my progress.

With Kindest Regards

Wow thank you so much. I wasn’t expecting this amount. I thought you would get some of this. You did so much work. This is amazing. I cannot tell you how much having them pay anything means to me. I really appreciate all your hard work. Thank you

We had a complex workplace personal injury matter which required the team to learn some highly specialised information in a particular field. They took the case on and learnt all the technical components with much enthusiasm. They secured the Total and Permanent Disability (TPD) claim for us, which was also quite complex. We also were able to settle Work Injury Damages (WID) with the former employer and were very pleased with our settlement amount which the team had worked hard to secure on our behalf. From start to finish, they were always on hand to discuss any of our questions and honestly treated us like part of the family. We would highly recommend working with Hall Payne.
