What our clients say

'My experience with Maddens was a positive one. If I wanted to ask Gary a question I just did. I felt comfortable asking him. No question was too silly. He gave really good feedback. Anytime there was an update he would ring and let me know. The team also saved me a trip to Melbourne by setting up a Zoom conference at their office.'

‘Gary is straight to the point, so you know where you stand. He explains everything in laymen’s terms, is very sensitive to your situation, and takes that into account when speaking to you. He provides options, and advises you on how to make decisions weighing up the pro and cons. After all my dealings with Gary, and what he’s done for me, I would recommend him to anyone who’s suffered an injury.’

Frequently asked questions
Why are legal documents sometimes so hard to read and understand?

Many legal documents can be complex. Maddens Lawyers have a policy of using "plain English" and minimising legal jargon. Whenever possible we attempt to use language and expressions that will be understood by the client. If you do not understand any document or words, Maddens Lawyers will be pleased to clarify the matter. Contact us if you have any questions about legal processes, documents or requirements.

Do you keep and store my legal files at the completion of my case?

Unless specifically requested, we are not obliged to store files after the completion of a matter. Our terms of engagement enable us to destroy files after seven (7) years from completion.

How do you accept or reject a client?

The first decision a Lawyer must make is whether they are able to accept a client's matter. A practising Lawyer is not obliged to act for a client in a particular matter - unless you he or she wants to. Some of the considerations that are taken into account before accepting a matter include whether there are any potential conflicts of interest, whether the client's instructions involve potential fraud, illegality or other impropriety, and whether the Lawyer is experienced to handle the particular matter. All potential clients should be reassured that any matters raised are held in the strictest confidence. Contact us to discuss your individual case and how we can help.
