About Us

Industry Awards

Doyles Guide and Three Best Rated have consistently awarded Garling and Co as a leading compensation law firm in Sydney. Doyles Guide has recognised Garling and Co in both the Recommended and Leading categories for Accident Compensation Law Firm and Personal Injury Law Firm since 2015.

Our senior lawyer Matthew Garling has received individual recognition as Leading Accident Compensation Lawyer (NSW). This award is voted on by peers in the legal and insurance industries and only recognises lawyers who provide exceptional service to their clients and achieve the very best results.

Most of our clients are referred to us by colleagues in the legal and medical professions where we are trusted to achieve the best outcome for their family and friends. We are also often asked to take over cases from other law firms who hand over cases to junior lawyers, who are not specialists in personal injury law. When things go wrong, you need an expert on your side.

Until Matthew and Allison stepped in as my Legal Representatives I was bullied, harassed, and treated unjustly by my insurance company along with their legal team. I was lied to, had false reports... written about me but when Garling and Co stepped in that all changed. For the amount of work and dedication both Matthew and Allison put in I will forever be grateful. They dealt with my matter swiftly and professionally. From getting the correct reports done to help my case to retrieving witness statements, they did it all. I’d like to thank the both of you from the bottom of my heart for helping end such a tormenting legal process and giving me more than I could ever imagine. Not just financially, but most importantly my freedom back. I hope that my review can make a difference in people knowing and believing that your legal firm truly does stand for what it does, help the people whom have been treated unjustly.read more

I was involved in a not at fault motor vehicle accident that left me with chronic pain and PTSD. At first, the insurance company of the driver at fault made me feel as if they were there to help... me. After some time, it became apparent this was not the case. Not taking my injuries seriously was an awful and frustrating experience. When I could no longer deal with the deceit, I sought out the help of Garling & Co Lawyers, and I'm so glad I did!From the first conversation I had with Matthew Garling I felt at ease. His genuine concern and excellent communication skills stood out. Throughout the whole process, Matthew patiently took the time to clarify things until I understood. His professional and personable approach, together with his strong work ethic was exceptional.I could not have asked for a better person to represent me, and I honestly don't know where I'd be if I had continued to deal with the insurance company myself.Matthew and his team at Garling & Co Lawyers are outstanding. They are of the highest calibre and receive my highest recommendation.read more

Through absolute frustration in trying to deal directly with insurance companies following a life-changing accident I decided to contact a lawyer. Initially I tried one of the big guys and also... Garling & Co, the initial engagement was light years apart and after my first conversation with Matthew I decided to engage him and Garling and CO. It has been a long and challenging process however the team at Garling and Co Layers have been there all the way to explain the how and why of the process. Thankfully it is all over now and I am extremely happy with the outcome. I would not hesitate in recommending Garling and CO to anyone in the unfortunate position of needing a lawyer. Integrity and professionalism is how I would describe them.read more
