Google Rating
4.9

We are not flashy marketers, spending big dollars on TV marketing campaigns where all the effort goes into winning your business and often does not translate to achieving the best result. We are a boutique practice of lawyers that are Accredited Specialists in Personal Injury Law.

We do not take on every case, only those we know we can make a difference in.

We are proud of our 5-star Google rating and work hard to provide exceptional service to our clients to maintain this. 20% of our clients start their claims with other firms and are unhappy with the quality of work and service they receive. See our 5-star reviews from Google here.

Our clients talk about how moving to Garling and Co has changed their lives. If you need a change and are not getting the support you need, contact us today!

No Win No Fee Guarantee

Our “No Win, No Fee Guarantee” means that you do not pay any professional fees, barrister fees or disbursements to our firm if your claim for compensation is unsuccessful.

If we do not win your case and you do not receive any compensation, you will not pay us any legal costs.

We make this guarantee because we WIN 99% of our client’s claims.

Maximum Fee Guarantee

If your claim resolves prior to a Court hearing, we will cap our professional fees to no more then 35% (not including GST) of your settlement amount. This means that if the result is not as good as we hoped, not all your compensation will be paid in legal costs. There are no surprises when your claim is resolved.

This does not mean we charge 35% of what you receive, rather it means that if our professional fees are more than 35% of your settlement amount, you will be charged the lesser amount.

We guarantee our professional fees will not exceed 35% (exclusive of GST) of your total settlement amount if your claim settles at least 30 days prior to a Court hearing.

So very impressed with the professional team who looked after me throughout the last 4 and 1/2 years. A special mention to Kerry and Nathan who navigated each request to fight for my right to gain... access to further treatments and physio and to ensure medical treatment would be covered moving forward. I was so grateful I could hand it all over to you and not have to go through this very challenging time without your support.I thank you for the compassion you have provided to me, from the first contact with Matthew and Natasha, to finalisation with Kerry and Nathan.I highly recommend the team at Garling and Co for any third party compensation claims. You are in good hands with them all.read more

Emma, Rebecca and the team at Garling and Co have worked diligently throughout my workers compensation claim. The level of professionalism, support and communication has been faultless. Of particular... note has been the sensitivity displayed to me throughout the lengthy process. Worker’s compensation claims are complex and not easy to navigate, particularly when you are unwell. I do not hesitate to recommend Garling and Co to help you find a way through this otherwise unfathomable system.read more

I want to thank Garling & Co so much for all the help they have given me and helped with my claim. We got the win last week and it was the best news I have gotten considering how much my life has... been turned upside down the past 2 years. Emma and Rebecca have been incredible to work with and explained everything from the start even when I had hesitation to go ahead regarding how much everything would cost or how fair it could go or even if I had a chance, but they explained everything thoroughly, so I understood it all. Thank you for making this process seamlessly easy and helping me get the win it will make things a little easy for me that's for sure financial thank you for all your help I cannot recommend you and your services enough. Thank you again.read more

Have had a rollercoaster ride with Garling and Co over the several years we have been battling the system that injured workers are faced with. The wheels of progress are slow within this system.... However Garling and co have always stood by me. Calls are returned and matters are always followed up in a timely manner.read more
