We specialise in Compensation Law

Our Aim

Our aim is simple; to obtain the best possible settlement we can for our clients. We appreciate that our clients want to get their lives back on track, as soon as possible and that is exactly what we do. We support our clients through these major life decisions with outstanding levels of communication and customer service. We believe we are here to help.

Our History

Our founder, Matthew Garling, is an NSW Law Society Accredited Specialise in Personal Injury Law. He and his family have a long history in the law, dating back to 1815, with Frederick Garling being the first lawyer in Australia. Justice is in our DNA!

Matthew and his team have a proven track record of delivering outstanding results in all matters relating to Compensation Law. Visit our testimonial page or Google reviews to see what our past clients have to say about Garling and Co.

Our Point of Difference

At Garling & Co, our primary aim is to provide outstanding service to our clients; we do this by utilising the most current technology and by ensuring our clients are fully informed of their rights throughout the claim. This is done with simple courtesy and manners, promptly responding to our clients needs.

We take pride in providing affordable legal advice. We have available “no win no fee” costs agreements in certain matters and have developed a fair method of value billing (lump sum billing) to our clients rather than charging hourly rates for our work.

We believe charging an hourly rate is in direct conflict with our client’s interests and needs. Our clients want their matter finalised as quickly and efficiently as possible for the right result. Charging an hourly gives no incentive for the lawyer to resolve the claim quickly, just the opposite in fact, the lawyer wants the claim to go for as long as possible and be as complex as possible so they are paid more. The outcome for the client is not aligned with the lawyers interests. We believe this is unacceptable yet it is the normal method for charging legal costs.

We have developed our legal costs system so as to align both our and our client’s interests, so we are both working towards the same goal which is the best possible outcome as quickly as we reasonably can resolve the claim.
