Staff at The Personal Injury Lawyers

As a Personal Injury Law firm, we have offices in Brisbane, The Gold Coast, and we service all of Queensland.

We offer our services with a 'No Win, No Fee Guarantee' which means we work extra hard to make sure you get your maximum compensation due, because if we don't win for you, we don't get paid.

Below are just some of the key staff you may likely encounter across our offices, but you may also speak to many of our people behind the scenes such as Paralegals, other Law Clerks, or our very helpful receptionists, and other support staff who all play a big part in making your experience with us matter.

Our staff work hard, and we look after them well to make sure you get the best people to interact with, because clients just like you are incredibly important to us, make no mistake.

NOTE: We'd love to share you more about our excellent and highly accredited & award winning staff but unfortunately Queensland law makes it illegal for Personal Injury Law firms to have photographs of staff and limits how much we can share with you. Once you contact us however, legally we can share lots more information with you, so feel free to get in touch with any questions.
