We have won landmark judgements in workplace injury and road accident cases, set the standard in sexual abuse compensation payouts and fought against discrimination, unfair dismissals and illegal working conditions. We have pioneered asbestos litigation, helped our clients gain just settlements in family and relationship law, and been successful in upholding the legal rights of thousands of clients in many other areas of the law.
When you need to make a stand for your rights, we stand with you.
Under our No Win No Fee OR Expenses* policy on fees and out of pocket expenses, we will waive our fees if you don’t win a case that we have agreed to fund and pick up the tab on your out of pocket expenses.
We have served workers and their families for over 40 years. We can help by providing expert, affordable and accountable legal advice. Our values are reflected in our long-standing support for workers, personalised service and understanding our clients' personal needs, and our ambition to make the legal system work for them.
For when you're at work, we have a team of lawyers who are experts in helping you with matters such as workplace accidents and WorkCover injury claims, employment contracts and disputes, unsatisfactory work conditions and discrimination or bullying in the workplace.
For matters affecting your life outside of work, we have lawyers who are experts in compensation claims for injuries and accidents encountered on the road or in public, claims against superannuation and other types of insurance, sexual and institutional abuse compensation, family and relationship law settlements, asbestos exposure, buying and selling property, and other general areas of the law.
We believe the law should be explained in plain language and legal help should be accessible close to where our clients live and work. Ryan Carlisle Thomas provides expert local legal advice at 22 locations throughout Victoria.
Senior partner, Jodie Harris, explains what makes a law firm great, and how a culture of care, respect and the personal involvement of senior lawyers leads to superior results for clients.
During an extremely stressful period, I have found my WorkCover lawyer to be incredibly supportive, understanding and professional. This gave me the reassurance and confidence I needed to get through it!
