We specialise in Compensation Law

Our Aim

Our aim is simple; to obtain the best possible settlement we can for our clients. We appreciate that our clients want to get their lives back on track, as soon as possible and that is exactly what we do. We support our clients through these major life decisions with outstanding levels of communication and customer service. We believe we are here to help.

Our History

Our founder, Matthew Garling, is an NSW Law Society Accredited Specialise in Personal Injury Law. He and his family have a long history in the law, dating back to 1815, with Frederick Garling being the first lawyer in Australia. Justice is in our DNA!

Matthew and his team have a proven track record of delivering outstanding results in all matters relating to Compensation Law. Visit our testimonial page or Google reviews to see what our past clients have to say about Garling and Co.

Our Point of Difference

At Garling & Co, our primary aim is to provide outstanding service to our clients; we do this by utilising the most current technology and by ensuring our clients are fully informed of their rights throughout the claim. This is done with simple courtesy and manners, promptly responding to our clients needs.

We take pride in providing affordable legal advice. We have available “no win no fee” costs agreements in certain matters and have developed a fair method of value billing (lump sum billing) to our clients rather than charging hourly rates for our work.

We believe charging an hourly rate is in direct conflict with our client’s interests and needs. Our clients want their matter finalised as quickly and efficiently as possible for the right result. Charging an hourly gives no incentive for the lawyer to resolve the claim quickly, just the opposite in fact, the lawyer wants the claim to go for as long as possible and be as complex as possible so they are paid more. The outcome for the client is not aligned with the lawyers interests. We believe this is unacceptable yet it is the normal method for charging legal costs.

We have developed our legal costs system so as to align both our and our client’s interests, so we are both working towards the same goal which is the best possible outcome as quickly as we reasonably can resolve the claim.

I would like to thank the entire team at Garling and Co for being in my corner throughout the worst years I've experienced in my life.I chose Garling and Co in the end after being seriously injured... at work and needing representation, something I should have done years prior.I met with over 12 other legal firms in Sydney. Large,medium, small and all in between. Some were friends, some family, some were sharks, many were pressuring, many promised the world, Matthew was not like that.Matthew was the benchmark as he was one of the first I spoke with and ultimately he stood out in the end as I felt he was the most genuine.From the outset to the conclusion, I found Matthew to be very polite, easy to communicate with and extremely down to earth.He explained everything simply, he had answers for any questions along the way. He told me it how it was, not just what I wanted to hear.Matthew is a genuine nice guy that runs a very efficient and professional law firm. I made the correct choice engaging him in my claims and would not hesitate in recommending him.Renee was also terrific in handling my TPD claim which was literally finalised faster then international postage.Allison, Rebecca and Kelli were all great, always.Thanks again Garling and Co.read more

When you work for an employer for a number of decades and suffer a debilitating injury, you expect compassion, support and belief that you are genuine. When you don’t get that and then also have to... deal with Workers Compensation Insurers it slowly breaks you.That's when you need amazing support like Matthew Garling and his team. From my first meeting with Matthew I was confident I was referred to the right guy. I couldn’t be more pleased with my outcome. Matthew is the Guru of workers compensation, he is professional, easy to work with, nothings a bother and most importantly he gets great results. Do not think twice about using Garling and Co Lawyers.Thank you Matthew, Renee, Allison and Kelli for your invaluable support.read more

I am grateful to have had Matthew represent me on my motor vehicle compensation claim.After meeting with two lawyers previous to deciding on Garling and co, I was left unsure and confused as to... where I stood regarding my claim. Matthew and Allison were incredibly helpful, put my mind at ease, and took the worry and stress out of an already difficult situation.Through the settlement process they would always keep me informed and made time to answer all of my questions. I am really pleased with the outcome of the settlement.Thank you to the team at Garling and Coread more
