Tim Grellman

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.

I recently engaged Hall Payne Lawyers to run my workers compensation case and was impressed from the very start. From those initial words of reassurance right through to the final stages of reaching a successful outcome the HPL team was amazing. Craig Joshua, solicitor, was professional in every respect. He was thorough and always kept me informed of what was going on. Nothing was too much trouble. Alexandra Rogers did an amazing job providing paralegal support. With this journey now behind me I can highly recommend Hall Payne Lawyers.

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
