Finding yourself in sudden need of legal support can be a confronting experience. Whether you’re recovering from a personal injury, experiencing family upheaval or are in the midst of a commercial dispute, the last thing you need is additional stress when trying to find a lawyer.

If you need help with personal injury or compensation claims, a commercial dispute or family lawyers, our team of Reservoir lawyers can provide you with highly qualified legal advice. Peter Gordon and the team believe in telling it straight, so you’ll know exactly what to expect and what your legal options and responsibilities are at every stage of your case.
There are a few factors to consider when trying to decide on the best Reservoir lawyers.
Communication is key. It’s important that your lawyers take the time to communicate with you in a professional manner that is friendly and respectful, allowing you to gain a clear understanding of the legal work they are doing on your case.
At Gordon Legal, we believe in telling it straight. We’ll walk you through your case step by step, so you know your legal rights and can make informed decisions.
Experience in the necessary area of law is also crucial. This will save time and money and increase your chances of a successful outcome - particularly if it’s a complex case. Peter Gordon and the team are highly qualified lawyers and solicitors with decades of experience helping everyday Victorians with quality legal advice for everything from family legal support to high profile class action suits.
One of the first concerns people who find themselves in need of legal representation have is whether they can afford to pay for a lawyer. Getting an estimate for your case ahead of time is difficult, as it will depend on the complexity of legal support required from your local Reservoir lawyers. This can include anything from the number of documents requiring preparation, multiple team members, and ongoing court representation.
Some lawyers bill in minutes. Others charge by the hour or at fixed rates. Rates ought to correlate with the knowledge and experience of the lawyer in a specific practice area and can range from a couple of hundred dollars per hour to a few thousand for highly qualified experts.
Gordon Legal believes everyone should have the ability to pursue justice and compensation - not just those with access to money and resources. That’s why we offer a ‘no win, no fee’ system for a number of law practice areas, including WorkCover, Road Accidents, Public Liability and Medical Negligence claims.
If you’ve suffered a personal injury, our Reservoir lawyers will help you with your case and provide free legal support until a successful outcome is achieved. Our legal team will focus on getting the best claims compensation outcome for you, so you can focus on recovery instead of worrying about upfront legal fees.
If we win, we’ll simply deduct the legal fees from your settlement. This will account for all consultations, document preparation and court representation required for your case, along with any other legal services provided like mediation and arbitration.
Much like the cost, how long your case takes to reach settlement will depend on its complexity and, if it’s a personal injury compensation claim, the severity of your injuries or illness. Sometimes, this can mean years.
Settlement for injuries which require multiple surgeries or prolonged treatment will take longer as a result of the time required for the long term impact of the injury or illness to be understood.
We understand that waiting for settlement can be frustrating, particularly if you are experiencing financial hardship as a result of loss of wages and medical expenses. Rest assured that your Reservoir lawyers will be working as hard as they can to achieve a successful and substantial settlement as early as possible.
Because of this, it’s important that you reach out for legal advice as soon as possible if you’ve suffered a personal injury. Not only are there legal ramifications for the delayed pursuit of an injury claim, but the earlier we’re aware of your situation, the more high-quality information we can gather to support your compensation claim.
