Having all worked at the largest of national personal injury law firms in various senior roles, we decided that we wanted to focus our energies on making a difference and delivering what our regional clients want, and this is our promise to you:

  • We will provide personalised services in regional offices staffed by locals;
  • We will come to you when it’s hard for you to get to us;
  • Wherever possible, we will make the big city Defendants come to your town, not the other way around;
  • Your questions or concerns will never be trivial or unimportant to us, ever, and we will always take the time required to answer them;
  • When you call us, you will never be put through to a call centre in some unknown location;
  • We will communicate with you regularly in any way that suits you best;
  • We will do our best for you, at all times, no matter what;
  • We will still be there for you after your case is finished because we understand that for you, some challenges will continue.
