the donaldson law difference.

we’re focused on you.

Taking the step to talk to a lawyer can be difficult. We are easy to talk to and understanding. We judge ourselves not only on the results we deliver for you, but also how we have made you feel.

We keep the number of claims every solicitor handles low, so they have time to focus on you and achieve the best results in as short a time frame as possible. We also know everyone’s story is unique, we take the time to listen to you and always advise the best path forward for your circumstances.

we work towards out of court solutions.

We are not an aggressive or adversarial law firm. The more lawyers fight, the more it costs you. In our experience clients don’t want their day in court. They want a matter resolved as quickly and cost-effectively as possible, whilst achieving a positive outcome.

“I was surrounded by people who understood me, my case and the process I was going through”

I first came to know Lisa after a very difficult time in my life when I had made the overwhelming decision to speak of my abuse within the Australian Defence Force. I was in an extremely fragile state suffering from PTSD, Depression and Anxiety alongside having to face debilitating physical conditions that caused me chronic pain and hospitalisation.
