A positively unjust settlement



Dear Brendan and Steve, It has been just over 6 months since the abuse I suffered was finally acknowledged by the entity responsible for the employment of my abuser. Without your involvement in bringing this acknowledgement to a head I would still be facing anxiety and depression issues. Today I am in a significantly better place and have genuine joy again. Thankyou. Your handling of my case was outstanding. It was clear when I appointed you that my best interest and personal wellbeing was your primary focus. Your integrity and professionalism was only surpassed by your genuine empathy and support. At all times your communication was concise and well considered. To Brendan's absolute credit he always addressed any of my concerns in a very empathetic, respectful, understanding and concise manner in a non-legalistic way. Your combined expertise and knowledge of the law afforded me the confidence in accepting what was and is an extremely fair and balanced outcome. Individually, your empathy and approach is best summed in the words of Theodore Roosevelt … "People don't care how much you know until they know how much you care".


I just want to thank you for everything, this has gone so much more smoothly than I thought it would. Safe to say I have been impressed with how you guys do things at Fisher Dore.

I had a work accident and I had Steve Herd manage my case. It was very complicated and I was quite sick and the caring specialists including Brendan Ezzy were empathetic and thoughtful in how I was treated. They worked extremely hard on my case and gave me sound advice throughout. I couldn’t t have asked for a better outcome and I got my life back. Thank you Steve, Brendan and the team.

My experience with the firm relates to a common law claim for compensation, in which I was represented by Brendan and Steve and their associates. They did an absolutely amazing job and it was right in the very deepest of the pandemic that they assisted me. There was a fantastic result for me and the work done by the team was "above and beyond". In the very height of the unusual circumstances of the pandemic, these lawyers continued to provide the absolute highest standard of representation. My claim for compensation was related to circumstances of a sensitive nature. And the ability of the team to be compassionate, yet professional and focused on the details pertaining to a result was again "above and beyond". Brendan, especially stands out as a lawyer who not only understands the workings of law relating to compensation but also has the ability to relate and understand and act accordingly and appropriately to ensure a good result and at the same time providing a comfortable environment for a client like myself who has a claim relating to sensitive issues. Thanks so much Brendan. And thank you Fisher Dore lawyers.
