After being diagnosed with mesothelioma I was in contact with Slater and Gordon to ascertain and establish my legal rights.
The questions asked of me included work history, employers, other employees I worked with as witnesses, years of practice of using asbestos and of situations where the asbestos was regarded as dangerous to my health.
Slater and Gordon walked me through the process and showed genuine concern and support during the whole process. I didn’t need to leave Perth or attend any inconvient meetings, even though the work related event, and solicitors practiced out of Sydney.
I am extremely happy with the result achieved by Slater and Gordon and do recommend their highly professional, patient and friendly manner as Asbestos Claim Lawyers.

SO UNPROFESSIONAL & UNRELIABLE... I made an enquiry with this law firm to represent my claim... I received an email to confirm they are looking into it... a few weeks passed & I heard nothing so I emailed & Laura Sampson (solicitor) responded that she will need to look over it with her law partner... time passed & after several emails from me, I still got no reply... it took them 3 months to send me a copy & paste letter stating they see my claim as being little in dollar value to represent me... worst of all in that letter they stated some other company name as oppose to who I was making my claim against... I had a traumatic fall & have broken teeth, back, leg & knee injuries... Ive found my new law firm who state I gave a very strong case... your loss slater & Gordon

Marin helps me so much. He is very kind and very good at what he does. He gives my insurance company big headache. If you need a lawyer ask for Marin and his assistant Nicole. I'm so happy I have someone to listen to my problems, I have no family here so this means a lot.

It seems one hand does not know what the other is doing. Conflicting correspondence shows that assistant is not communicating with case lawyer and when pointed out she accuses me of being rude and just hangs up. Talking to the case layer is completely.blocked.

Awesome, at the start. Now I have to chase them to return my calls. I am sick of leaving messages to which no one responds for my TPD claim. I was even told that my representative was at a climate change strike. For one day, yes but not for the 3 days that my messages have been ignored. I would not recommend them unless you enjoy talking to crickets. It would appear that money comes before their clients that their business at the end of the day relies upon.

I was a victim of a brutal beating in Melbourne's Dame Phyllis Frost Centre in 1999. I ended up being deported back to New Zealand and as a result my law suit took 8 years, (if not more!) I ended up with frontal lobe dysfunction. (Short term and long term memory loss, and my balance is slightly out.) For this, I got $7,000 NZD. Which ended up to be 5,000 AUD.
It wasn't my fault. Australian government has a duty of care, I told the officers it was going to happen! They did nothing and I was told by Slater and Gordon I was lucky to get anything because it all took so long! Not my fault either! DON'T DO IT! CHOOSE SOMEONE ELSE!

They Don’t fight on your behalf as they should. I gave them 4 months to come up with a some sort of movement on my case and in that time they did very little to represent me and I felt alone and not Represented dealing with the case on my own and had to let them go to find a law firm that was willing to fight on my behalf

I used Slater and Gordon to help me put up a case for a Permanent Impairment claim. I only spoke to the Case Lawyer on the phone for 10 mins and submitted all the past medical reports to them. A few weeks later I was asked to see medical examiners to assess me. I had been seeing neurologists for my condition and for some reason I was sent to an ENT specialist who in the end had no idea how to assess me. My condition was exacerbated by flickering lights which made me very dizzy. I told the lawyers about this assessment and they just asked me to accept the 10% impairment claim which as minimal. When I had a meeting with S&G to sign the claim I had another Case Lawyer who was surprised I had not even had a meeting with them. At the end she just said that based on the file thickness the fees charged were normal. A very unprofessional firm and no empathy. Don't believe any of the TV ads and am happy that bad karma is affecting their share price especially with their UK venture. Don't use them. Maurice Blackburn much better!

A few months before my case was going to court, I was asked to come into the Ballarat office to discuss the ‘possibility’ of settling out of court. I arrived to find I had to settle out of court or I had to pay the barrister telling me this, within 7 days and the office would take me to court for costs. When I complained they denied it and said I was happy with what they did.

My first meeting over 6 years ago was concluded by the agreement that ,I had a predisposed anxiety problem and that a quick resolution would be in my best interest. now six years on with some well documented failures i.e three years and four month to gain Police report ?
four years to provide A.T.O statement to N.R.M.A ?.
Two settlement meetings exhausted without the above information or a job description of what my employment involved.
over this prolonged period I have conducted my self with in the bounds of our contractual agreement and advanced my concerns at every level . I am a destroyed individual ! as predicted in my first address to this law firm a quick resolve would be in my best interest.

They took my case injured at work I became distant from friends and family became absolutely depressed filled with stress and anger plagued with so much undesirable uncertainty in my life , totally bodged my case I dare say any other firm would have represented me way better ,I got so depressed after the second person was appointed to my case I just gave up then restarted the case again just to find out a new person had being issued my case and I had to go through it all again, recollections of the incident details dates and what not ,i would have being better of representing myself,they gotta make their money somehow after that big loss overseas and we're the ones getting ripped off,I'm left with my left hand, my fore and middle fingers injured probability for the rest of my life

I would like to give the worst possible rating for Slater and Gordon Brisbane office. They have dealt with my TPD claim for over 2 years.
I have had to talk to office clerks and assistants the entire time, no lawyers are ever available for the client to communicate with. Over the course of my claim more than 5 employees that dealt with my claim have left the firm. I have not been informed about their departures neither have I been given names as to who would be taken over my claim. Communication was absolutely appalling. No updates on the claim without chasing after people. No responds to emails or phone calls.
The communication that took place was unreasonably rude and unprofessional. Questions have not been answered and no direction has been given.
Furthermore absolutely no compassion has been shown at any stage of the claim. Instead of feeling well represented I have been countered with arrogance and a level of non-professional business dealings that have been unheard of.
Do not engage Slater and Gordon under any circumstances.

Been dealing with Nowicki Carbone and then S/G Melbourne for over three years now over a WorkCover claim. what a horrible experience.
they could not give a stuff. They will just refuse to be accountable and refuse to get back to you about Queries.Absolutly derelict behaviour. Would not recommend them to my enemies
Review by Ossaio Leilani1 year ago
The whole team at Slater and Gordon were extremely helpful and listened me. Unlike other lawyers they show that they cared. Slater and Gordon went above and beyond. A law firm like no other, A law firm with heart and feelings. The lawyers here put my mind at ease by always providing me with updates on the case. They were always available and always offered to help me. I highly recommend contacting them when you need any legal help. Thank you so much Abe!!

Do not use Slater and Gordon if you are trying to get out of an abusive marriage ladies. They are as supportive as a slab of marble. I experienced secondary abuse. Unexpected from a female lawyer. Have not recovered and always use male lawyers since.

Wow LoL!! Jasmina finally responses!! Wow? I am speechless!!
When did you explain anything?? Huh?? We only had 5mins meeting at your office room didn't we? I cryed 3mins and you were saying "pretty much not worth it" "seek help from family or centrelink"!!!
I called jasmina so many times and she ignored all my calls and messages.. Thomas(her assistant) surely passed my messages to her..
I only want to get my file back that I am totally entitled to legally but Jasmina and Matte paterson refused to release my file.. lack of law knowledge made me confused and did not know what I could not do anything further..
I still have voice recording file of phone conversation with Matte Paterson ( Salter & gordon customer care director). she was raising her voice saying " why you want to get your file?? If you did not pay anything what is to you?? why you care??"
I can attached this voice file here but I will pause at this stage..
Hi Jasmina.. you only can talk to me here! Since you refused to answering my call? You won't get any calls from me anymore!
I have to let the public know slater&Gordon dirty business behind victim's back!!
Ps, I am the victim of held-up while I was closing bar shift..( my life threatening experience by the thief with ski mask,hammer and a long screw driver) I am suffering PTSD and severe depressions since....----

Excellent legal advice. Friendly professional service. Always happy to answer questions or explain legal processes and concepts. Knowledgeable and informative legal staff that made a very stressful situation and process as straight forward and stress free as possible. Very happy with how my case was handled and also my final result. I would definitely recommend them to friends and family who needed legal advice.
Review by ShMcL Valkyries1 year ago
From the onset, I was apprehensive about challenging my claim with the insurance commission, but I trusted the Slater and Gordon Team from the beginning based on their poise and confidence and my own intuition.
In my line of work, I manage teams of professional consultants and deal with engineers, builders, developers, and government agencies on a constant basis. I only mention this because I believe it makes me particularly capable of assessing the competency of the Slater and Gordon team.
Through every step of the process, they provided the most professional advice and service I have ever encountered. Their attitude was excellent (even when mine was not) and their knowledge, confidence, and ability to explain every nuance of the legal system (often multiple times) was flawless. They balanced the fine line of managing my expectations while also giving me confidence in the prospective outcome with particular finesse. I am very grateful that they were the ones helping me through this very difficult process.
Thank you Slater and Gordon so much for all of your hard work and efforts.
