No win, no fee
Help when you need it most without the added stress of upfront legal fees - engaging a no win, no fee lawyer.
When you need legal help, understandably, the first thing people often think is ‘can I afford it?’
To address this, our Senior Partner, Peter Gordon and Partner, Paul Henderson pioneered the ‘no win, no fee’ system to create greater access to the legal system.
What is No Win, No Fee?
Whether you are located in Melbourne, Sydney, or anywhere in regional NSW or Victoria, a No Win, No Fee agreement means that for eligible cases, you don’t have to worry about up-front legal fees. We run your case, and if the case is successful, the legal fee is deducted from your settlement. At Gordon Legal, we believe you should not be prevented from pursuing your rights because you can’t afford it.
Is my case eligible?
Gordon Legal will assess your case to determine whether it has reasonable prospects of success and therefore be eligible for a No Win, No Fee arrangement. Generally speaking, the kinds of cases that are eligible are personal injury law claims including:
