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.

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.

My last stage of Workers compensation claim was managed by Emma Perkins, Natasha Stojanovic, Rebecca Dunshea and Kelli Robinson at Garling and Co. Lawyers who went the extra mile with their service... from the beginning to the end of 3 years of my case. I have become very anxious with almost everything after a workplace injury and a lot of times I probably ask more questions than I need to, but Emma Perkins always finds clear answers to my questions in a short time and explains to me patiently even using her mealtime or between her meeting and make me feel that I have been very well take care and supported. I am so grateful and extremely satisfied. The excellent service, attitude, and culture of Metthew Garling and his team are second to none with a very high success rate. If you going to battle with your workplace injury for a short or long period, you are better off with Garling and Co. lawyers who are able back you up every step of the way. I strongly recommend it to anybody who needs their service like me. Julieread more

Work cover fund is GOVT’S money but insurer think that it is from their 14th generation. So only they can have it. Not only that, people from the work, IME doctor from insurer, back to work... coordinator from work, Rehab provider from any side push the worker as hard as possible that the worker (doesn’t matter how the workers mental or psychical condition) either go back to his pre injury duty or leave the job.More over on that very bumpy any difficult journey some of them only treat the worker as a MONEY MAKING MECHINE .in some point worker feels like, no rooms to breath. On that moment need someone to support legally, someone to care, someone to relive.On my case I believe that, somehow, I manage to make my God happy. That’s why God sends me to Matthew Gerling and his team Allison, Rebecca and Nathan, and all of GARLING & co Lawyers.I am not good enough in English, can’t express my gratitude.Matthew, Allison, Rebecca and Nathan, please accept my appreciation and pass it to more
