Best Lawyers Award - Perth City Legal

James is an excellent solicitor and knows his stuff. He explained all the possible outcomes to me when we went to Workcover. When I called James and he wasn’t available he always promptly called me back and always kept me updated on my claim. He was always positive when I spoke to him and always willing to answer my questions.  I can’t express my gratitude enough to James. The result was more than I could have expected. Thanks James for your dedication and patience. I know its your job but your effort was really appreciated.

When it came time for my Workers’ Compensation informal conference, I was very nervous as I had never been in a situation like this before.

I was recommended to Perth City Legal, and particularly to Denise Chesworth. I now realise what a brilliant recommendation that was. Sensing my nervousness, Denise put me at ease by explaining the process we were about to undertake together.

Due to Denise’s expertise and extensive experience, we were able to reach a position that was acceptable to me. I was very pleased with the outcome and would therefore recommend Perth City Legal to anyone who is seeking redress under the workers’ compensation system.

I would recommend Perth City Legal to anyone who has a workers’ compensation claim. The team at Perth City Legal are very approachable. They understood how overwhelmed I felt dealing with the insurance company and different doctors.

I was told my claim was pended. I was sent to see a doctor by the insurance company. I waited ages before anyone from the insurance company contacted me again. I was without an income and needed treatment. I was then told the claim was declined as the insurance doctor said I did not injure myself at work.

I then contacted Perth City Legal and spoke to James. James filed an application at Workcover and had my claim listed for a conciliation conference. I really felt like James was on my side and fighting for me. James negotiated a lump sum payment of compensation for me at the conciliation conference.
