Successful legal action both in a solicitor and barrister context requires a strong relationship between you and your lawyer, which is based on mutual trust and confidence. This can only be gained by finding out if your lawyer has the knowledge and experience to handle your case or legal matter and that he or she relates to you as a person, not just as another client. It also involves your lawyer obtaining all relevant and necessary information and documentation in order to properly advise you as to whether you have a strong case or defence, as the case may be, or a reasonable chance of success or not. Accordingly, at HAJDUK GIBBS LLP the normal process is to conduct a detailed initial interview to obtain as much of the relevant information and documentation as possible.
HAJDUK GIBBS LLP has a stellar reputation in the area of litigation. Our office has experience in litigating matters in the sectors of Civil Litigation, Personal Injury, Commercial Litigation and Aboriginal Litigation. In many instances when matters get to the point of litigation we have assumed conduct of litigation files on referral from other law firms who do not have the litigation experience and strategy that we offer.
