5 Star Google Review - 

B&W Lawyers, Josh and the team have been professional, diligent and supportive throughout my entire experience with trying to negotiate my way through what at times has been emotionally difficult; dealing with insurance companies, IME’s and psychological examinations particularly when the circumstances are sensitive and personal in nature.
I have had TPD insurance and Income Protection for 10 years+ and further to Covid and Job keeper (which meant disappointingly and frustratingly that my actual IP payment was significantly less than my agreed insured amount.)

I originally applied by myself for IP in February 2021 (which was finally successful) and TPD in December 2021, further to ongoing interpersonal conflict in the workplace and an ongoing psychological injury coming to a head in February 2021, spanning over 7 years; but the TPD was eventually rejected towards the end of 2022 further to an IME, hence me contacting B&W.

From the moment I contacted the office and was referred to ‘Josh’, I instantly felt heard and understood. The regular communication, prompt responses and clear information has been second to none. Josh was thorough and personable, and was very respectful at all times.

Josh gave me wonderful advice and nothing was too much trouble nor did he ever make me feel uncomfortable nor anxious. His approach and manner was refreshing and reassuring, not egotistical nor pushy.
He is a wonderful asset to B&W, and my husband agrees, he has also been extremely impressed as I have communicated the process over the journey to him and what has been required of me.

The whole process is mostly arduous as usual when dealing with insurance companies (personally it took 2.5 years from the time of initiation of the TPD claim to successfully receiving the insurance payment, thanks to B&W; however; I cannot recommend Josh and the team highly enough to help the process easier to endure. I can’t thank them enough except to pass on and share my experience and gratitude!

The ‘no-win no-fee’ is exactly that, with no hidden nasties. I had to understandably pay for a couple of reports but that was clearly articulated to me prior to me signing up. If the claim is successful, then it is simply just short term financial sacrifice for long term gain.

I had so much confidence in Josh that I also engaged him and B&W services to investigate my Income Protection insurance also. Josh was successful in retrieving outstanding back payments plus the interest, and including all future payments to be increased. I could never have achieved this either on my own.

Thanks again B&W, amazing 10/10⭐️ - Abi H

The first instance I spoke to John Berrill I knew I was in good hands. Other lawyers didn’t show much interest to help me and quickly turned me down. I accidentally discovered Berrill and Watson Lawyers by a receptionist from another firm. I wish I remember that girl. I was going through a lot at that time losing my parents, back injury, losing my job etc… and not even for a second I was mistreated by John and his team.

I was dealing a lot with Daniel Rafferty and later when he left, Dellina took over. Both of them were always kind, respectful, supportive and most of all updating me regularly with the process of my TPD claim and also my Income protection claim. I have never met these people in person. I am based in Geelong and regardless their hard work and dedication to me personally was outstanding and I will forever be grateful to John, Daniel, Dellina and the team behind them.

What I was impressed that they always treated me as human being not just a number. I will recommend them not 100 percent but 200 percent to anyone. I am just a simple person that John took me on board after I spoke to him only for 30 minutes and trusted me with my case and assured me that I have a good chance to win this fight that he put so much effort into. He has a great team working with him which is hard to find especially nowadays.

I wish John and his team all the success and best for his/their future. - Viki K

We were affected by a very sophisticated financial scam so we contacted Berrill and Watson. With the free advice Paul Watson gave on how to handle the situation effectively we had the full amount returned.

He showed empathy in his dealings and was very knowledgeable and showed a full understanding of the situation. Also, he and his staff were very pleasant.

We can’t thank him enough for his support to achieve a successful outcome. We have no hesitation in recommending him to assist if people are caught similar situation. Peter and Angela

I highly recommend Berrill and Watson for TPD claims. Hunter and the team were awesome through the whole process. I was frustrated at times but Hunter always followed up with me and put me at ease.

I don’t think I would have been able to do this without the help of Hunter as I already had a lot going on.

Thank you to everyone at Berrill and Watson and I will be recommending them to anyone who needs help with insurance / superannuation claims.

I reside in Sydney. I was looking for a TPD lawyer online and fortunately decided to ring Berrill and Watson out of all the TPD lawyers listed on Google page. Explained my situation to Theodora and here I am, I have my TPD claim approved. Paid their fee after getting my funds transferred into my account.

I think from beginning of filing my TPD claim to the end when my claim got approved and funds were in my savings account, all I spent was a medical fee of $ 200. Now they are handing my wife’s claim as well.

I never have even stepped in their office in Melbourne, never met a lawyer from their firm. All the claim’s process was done by emails and phone calls with a great team of Simmon and Leanne. This team is very polite, helpful and approachable on every single phone call. Thanks Simmon, thanks Leanne, thanks Theodora and thanks to all the lawyers of the firm.

Whoever is in need due to their or their loved one’s permanent disability, MUST contact Berrill and Watson. The whole team are good people. - Varinda S

I reside in Tasmania and I was unable to get a lawyer to help me. A friend saw an advertisement for Berrill and Watson and suggested I send them through my details to see if they could assist me in anyway.

An appointment was made over the phone and everything went from there. They were amazing, so helpful and communication was fantastic. I had two claims that they were handling for me and we won both.

I would highly recommend this lawyer. I know if I need help in the future I wouldn’t deal with anyone else. Thank you Berrill and Watson for all your hard work⭐️ - Lesley S

I have been client of the Berrill and Watson Melbourne office. I had a preconceived ideas about lawyers but this law firm has changed my perception altogether.I found the lawyers also staff have social conscience .

Due to my Multiple Sclerosis I had brain fog , difficulty understanding certain legal term but both Theodora also Pinar have explained the process of TPD and income protection Insurance in plain language without any Jargon . I felt confident , I was in their capable hands . I found the staff are client focus and patient, professional, also down to earth to deal with.

I have no hesitation to recommend this firm to future clients. Im sure you will not regret with your decision to go with them.

I’m feeling very relieved for my future with the outcome I have received.thank you Berril and Watson staff and lawyers, Melbourne branch, you’re a good value for money! - M.T

I reached out to Paul Watson and the team at Berrill and Watson to seek legal advice on my Total and Permanent Disability (TPD) Policy after I experienced an accident at work. I was given his details from a friend who works in the personal injury/insurance field who spoke very highly of him and his team.

From the outset, I found him to be a wealth of knowledge in this area of law as well as being very approachable and a good listener. This was all so reassuring during a very anxious period of my life.

Paul and Hunter took the time to explain the process in order to seek the best possible financial outcome for me and my family. What resulted was a full payout on my claim in a little under 12 months from my injury.

I am so fortunate to have found Paul and the team at Berrill and Watson! I cannot recommend them highly enough on TPD claims. Thank you!! - Paul W

Absolutely amazing experience when applying for my TPD claim. My solicitor Hunter was always available to answer my questions and calm my anxiety.

One of the best choices I have made was picking up the phone and engaging with Berrell & Watson. In particular Hunter and his team made the entire process of an income protection claim simple and efficient for me. Everyone in the law firm was exceptionally diligent, kind and patient and I felt the communication between them was always impeccable.

Hunter fought my case with professionalism, whilst voicing my concerns and providing me with excellent legal advice. I was very lucky to have a positive outcome with my claim being accepted, something I not sure would have happened had I not had the support of Berrell and Watson. their representation took a huge weight off my shoulders during a difficult time and enabled me to concentrate on getting better.

I would like to acknowledge his team again for being there for me and cannot recommend them enough to anyone. - Natasha O

Anyone going through mental health issues and need to navigate a TPD claim could not recommend the team at BW more highly. Don't worry if you are not in Melbourne, they look after nationwide.

The process is complex and long and many times frustrating and sometimes you wonder if it is worthwhile. Having a good treatment team also helps you heading in the right direction.

Don't expect quick fast results from your insurer...it can and most likely will drag and drag with many obstacles to overcome. Whilst you may think that the many years of premiums you pay...in times of need that the insurance (super) company is there to help. That changes when you have a 'grey' area claim like TPD...for what it is worth don't try and do it yourself, leave it to Berrill & Watson.

Josh was my primary go to, assisted by Jessica (and the bosses) . They will keep you in the loop, respond to your calls and emails and be empathetic to your situation. - Tony O

Words can't express my gratitude to the efforts of John, Pat, Amy and Jessica over the past 7 years in not only investigating but following through with what I now call "a life changing event", stemming from a very unfortunate business event in 2015, in which my only thoughts were around "not worth being on this earth anymore....".

I have ME/CFS, & other chronic illnesses, & felt terrified & too sick to take on my insurance company on my own for a TPD claim. After 13 years of not being able to work due to my illness, I contacted Berrill & Watson because I saw they specifically deal with ME/CFS Claims.

I feel completely blessed to have had Hunter Thompson represent me. He & his team were able to accomplish what I felt was totally beyond me medico-legally. Equally important though, he is a truly patient, compassionate & kind soul, & he really does understand this illness, & all the complexities of it.

I feel like Hunter went above & beyond for me, & that thank you doesn't suffice. He is very passionate about his work & the area of ME/CFS, & I wish him nothing but the very best in his future.

I highly recommend Hunter Thompson, & Berrill & Watson Lawyers, they've been fantastic. - Jodi A

I recently had the pleasure of working with Daniel from Berrill and Watson in regards to my TPD claim. From the beginning of our communication, Daniel was nothing short of exceptional. He was always prompt with his responses, professional in his mannerism, and highly knowledgeable about the process.

Daniel took the time to explain every step of the process to me and answer all of my questions thoroughly, which helped me to feel confident and less stressed throughout the entire process. He was always available to reassure me and provide guidance when I needed it most.

I am extremely grateful for all of Daniel's dedication and hard work when it came to my TPD claim. His persistence, professionalism, and calm demeanor provided reassurance and made the process so much smoother than I ever expected.

He is a true asset to the firm and I will forever be grateful for all of his help. Thank you, Daniel! - Paul P

Jessica, Joshua and John assisted me with two quite complex insurance matters recently (February to April 2023). At every step I found all members of the Berrill & Watson team to be knowledgeable, efficient and helpful. Their thoroughness and knowledge of the insurance matters with which I was dealing, led to expeditious results. Regular communication from the legal team to me assured me of their diligence and that they remained on top of the matters I sought them to assist with.

I highly recommend Berrill & Watson if you want to have a well resourced, caring and thorough team on your side when you need legal assistance in your Life or Super Insurance matters. - Jason C

I have no hesitation in recommending Hunter Thompson, who managed our case and the Berrill &Watson team. From our first conversation they were dedicated to achieving a positive outcome quickly and with the minimum fuss or stress to us.

I was expecting a lengthy process but instead the matter was resolved very quickly and efficiently. Their success based remuneration model not only reduced our risk but also gave us confidence in their abilities in this potentially difficult area.

In short we were delighted. - Rob B

After I received a rather grim cancer diagnosis six months ago, I was positively blessed to be introduced to Paul Watson.

In dealing with two distinct insurance claims relating to my predicament, Paul and his team at Berrill & Watson were informative, collegiate, responsive, strategically sure and tactically right in all their counsel along the way.

Thank you Paul for getting us two from two successful results and for the kindness & calm consideration your brought at every step. I was honoured to be represented by you and am forever in your debt regarding the relief you’ve achieved for my family and me. - Peter C. Sydney

I have an enormous level of gratitude for Paul and the team at Berrill & Watson. During the most challenging time of our lives, Paul handled our two major claims for us with grace and calmness, quiet confidence, sage advice and great empathy. He was pro-active, highly responsive and consistent throughout.

Thanks to Paul and with great relief, both of our claims were approved with ease and speed. The entire process was a case study in quality, professionalism and emotional intelligence under extremely sensitive circumstances.

We highly recommend Berrill & Watson. In fact not long after we engaged their services ourselves, we recommended the business to a close friend and we’ve just learned that Hunter has also won our friend’s complex case for him. - Harksta

I really can’t express how grateful I am to Hunter for making the TPD claim (and IP claim) process as smooth as possible and really took away a lot of the stress. Hunter was always incredibly responsive to my emails and questions. I also really appreciated his kindness and tact when talking about something as emotional as not being able to return to work.

Their fees are extremely reasonable. I can’t recommend this firm highly enough. Also being able to do everything via phone appointments was so incredibly helpful when you are experiencing debilitating fatigue. - Kate G

- Kept me fully informed in a clear and friendly manner.
- Achieved an outcome beyond my most optimistic expectations held six months prior.

The team at Berrill & Watson Lawyers were helpful to me from the very beginning, meeting with me, treating me with respect, answering many questions, guiding me through all the processes and providing helpful information which clarified things, and made decisions easier. They listened very well, and responded intellegently, they were patient, and were willing to persevere even when the process became challenging on my end with gathering necessary requirements from third party participants.

They successfully won two rather significant health insurance claims for me, for a very reasonable fee. This has allowed me to be able to now afford the much needed financial support to access medical services for diagnosis and treatment of my physical condition.

If it wasn't for their help, I would have had no hope winning the claims, and would have ended up in quite a bad way medically/physically. I highly reccommend the Berrill & Watson Lawyers team. - Amos A

I honestly don't know where to start with all the praise I have for Berrill & Watson. I truly believe I would not have gotten my TPD and Income Protection payouts without them, as my Super fund was incredibly difficult to deal with and I would have given up.

Berrill & Watson keep in close contact and were always there to explain where the process was at. Their fees were so reasonable especially for how much time and effort they put in. I didn't even know that at the time of my date of disablement I had a second fund open! Berrill & Watson do all those checks to make sure you get everything you are entitled to.

I am on the disability pension and was about to run out of savings and have to move in with strangers which is very upsetting for me. Thanks to Berrill & Watson, what was a horrible traumatic way for me to end my working career, at least ended with housing security. Berrill & Watson were able to get my TPD and Income Protection payments approved from both funds. I cannot recommend them enough.

Thank you B&W. - Esther G

I can't recommend the services of Michael and the Berrill & Watson team highly enough, and would like to extend my sincere gratitude for his assistance.

Having contacted several law firms who were unwilling or unable to help, I contacted Berrill & Watson to assist with issues relating to an ongoing travel insurance claim that was causing a high level of stress and anxiety.

Michael was not only professional, but also empathetic and personable. His expertise and experience helped succesfully navigate the situation, put me at ease and assisted me in getting through the claims process to reach a satisfactory outcome.

Insurance claims, and insurance companies, can be extremely difficult to deal with and I am so thankful to have had Michael in my corner. I would have no hesitation in recommending Berrill & Watson. - Chad B

Hunter and Paul were professional, helpful, patient and timely in in their communication. My claim took approximately 14 months to complete, they were successful in securing me over $2 million dollars in settlement funds.

They then sought interest on the settlement sum, on my behalf, handling my complaint and determination with AFCA. They were successful in achieving an outcome that provided me with approximately $70,000 interest on top of the settled sum.

I recently engaged Berrill & Watson in Brisbane to assist with a Salary Continuance claim. Although I worked in a related industry to Insurance and had a reasonable understanding of the product, I knew I would need assistance with all of the work and the "know how" on Navigating the claim process.

I didn't have an existing relationship with the firm, but made contact following review of many websites. I decided to only contact Berrill & Watson based on the level and quality of educational content on their website which gave me confidence about their knowledge and experience but also their concern for their clients.

After a detailed initial consultation over the phone, I was provided with a comprehensive engagement proposal which enabled me to fully understand how they could help, and also how much their fees would be.

The claim did take some time due to issues on the side of the Insurer, but Hunter of Berrill & Watson kept me fully up to date with progress and was always available and responsive to any questions I had.

Happily, the claim was approved and Hunter even gained an additional interest payment from the Insurer due to their processing delays. I couldn't be happier with the outcome and know that I would not have been able to achieve this outcome if I attempted this on my own. Engaging Berrill and Watson was a great decision for me and has provided a great result for me and my family, removing financial worries during a difficult time. - Shaylene & John

Every team member at Berill & Watson from lawyers, associates to partners who I have dealt with over the last year was very passionate, knowledgable, patient & thorough. It’s clear this firm is all about getting the right & fair outcome for its clients!! My questions were always answered, I was consistently updated with the progress of my claims, my emails and calls returned in a timely manner, and nothing at all was too difficult - I can’t thank you all enough for the ongoing support & help.

Before contacting the team of professionals at Berrill and Watson I had already consulted with two other law firms. I wanted to find the Law firm that would best suit my needs. After consulting with Berrill and Watson I decided that they were undoubtedly the best choice.
Not only were the team professional, warm, friendly, helpful and thoroughly diligent but kind and caring.

I had signed an initial cost agreement which was perfectly reasonable. After proceedings went smoothly and the desired outcome was achieved in much less time then anticipated I was charged a significantly less ammount then what I had agreed to.

I came to Berrill and Watson after being referred to Michael Bates. After going through 24 months using a different firm and not getting even close to getting a resolution or receiving communication, it became stressful and frustrating. I didn’t know what to do or where to go to next. A client of mine referred Michael and said he will offer me a free consultation and guide me in the right direction.

At first I was scared by the last 24 month’s. Instantly Michael made me feel comfortable feeling like I could already see that I was in good hands. Michael helped me fully understand the process and gave me the truth good and bad. This communication really put me at ease.

Only 3 months went by and Michael called to tell me that he had fantastic news and we got the result we were looking for.

A 5 star review and commenting on support I received fin Michael bates can’t be expressed in just words. Even after the matter was resolved I still speak with Michael to find out how we are. Thank you again Michael and the team at Berrill and Watson. Highly recommend- David L

5 Star Google Review - 

Do not hesitate to explore your options with B&W if you are looking for legal representation with insurance claims.

The team at B&W Lawyers helped us with two successful insurance claims for two different individuals in the family. One was TPD and one was IP & TPD. The first claim pertained to a mental illness and the second claim pertained to a rare disease called Idiopathic Intracranial Hypertension (IIH), both of which there is no cure for. Both claims were complicated.

Dealing with the team was easy as the communication was top notch. Joanne from B&W helped with both claims and we have nothing but praise for her kindness, empathy, patience, and professionalism; and this extends to the team.

The fees were reasonable without eroding the recipient’s payout which is fair and ethical, which I believe is reflected in their process in our experience. Previous experience with bigger law firms who provide all inclusive service also charge higher fees. With B&W, we provided the major documents such as primary medical reports for submission, and they deal with the rest. While there were some leg work on our part, delegating communication with the insurer to B&W made the claims process much less stressful so that you can focus on other things. - M.C

I would like to thank the team at Berrill & Watson, with special mention to Joshua Saunders.

Josh you should be extremely proud of the person you are. The patience and professionalism you displayed in our conversations was above and beyond. I sit here still blown away by the care and understanding you have shown me; I would not have made it this far without you. Thank you.

To Michael and John. You both should be extremely proud of the work you do and the firm you have built. I wish you every success in the future. Keep up fighting for the little guy.

On reflection I realise I brought along a lot of mistrust of the insures and law firms, I am both sorry and embarrassed by how I acted at times because of this, I caused a lot of extra unneeded stress and I cannot apologise enough for that. I will gladly recommend you to anyone.

Thank you all for working so hard on securing my future. - D.P

I want to express my deepest gratitude to Michael Bates of Berrill and Watson, who conducted my case with great patience, understanding, compassion and great results.

I didn’t realise at all that I had the opportunity to claim my income protection and trauma insurance compensation, because I was in such a condition that I had lost all hope for justice in this world.

The Financial Counsellor Bernie Meehan, whom I turned to for advice, recommended to me Berrill and Watson as leading plaintiff superannuation and insurance law firm in Australia.

Thanks to my discussions with Berrill and Watson I was made aware that I had an opportunity to claim compensation from my insurance company.

I was very fortunate to have Michael Bates assigned to my case. Michael is a specialist with a capital letter S. I met Michael at a very difficult and stressful time in my life. He was always available to answer any of my many questions and provide me with guidance and direction beyond the call of duty. Michael himself is a congenial and friendly person. He's easy to talk and has been a pillar of strength throughout my case.

His passion and dedicated to me as his client insured that I received the outcome I desired. I am very, very happy with what Michael did for me, and would gladly recommend him to anyone.
I want to express again my deep respect and the greatest of gratitude to Michael Bates and his team. - Natalia Z

I have been amazed from the initial meeting with these lawyers, all the way through 2 years of my matter and right up to the end at the caring, respectful, empathetic and yet always professional approach of all of their staff!

I have extreme anxiety and yet a phone call from this company often had us all laughing: usually the calls were a bright spot in my day!

They made a 'heads up' phone call before sending out emails and explained what would be in the email. They guided me, reassured me and made the progress of my legal matter a smooth and painless process. I am saddened to lose a team who have been a great support for 2 years. My thanks to all at Berrill & Watson Lawyers: particularly Tom, Matt and formerly also Emily and Kaytlan. Your kindness and patience will be long remembered. - Kaye W

What a relief !! We made a TPD claim, and after going it alone for a year, day after day head to head with the insurance company, enough was enough. The level of stress Insurance companies apply while trying to not honor their obligation is high and relentless. They used every trick in the book to deter us, and when they run out of tricks they rolled out a Highly paid independent medical examiners in attempt to override actual medical evidence. They paid a IME$ 2152.00 for a 30 minute appointment to write a report that suited them, he did and there is nothing independent about that. That was the final straw for us.

We contacted Hunter at Berrill and Watson who took over and we never looked back, Hunter achieved settlement in a few months, his experience and understanding of how the insurance companies processes work are priceless. Without Hunter we may have never had a result, best decision we ever made. Dont go it alone, call Berrill and Watson. - Tony H

Wow! I was very fortunate to have these guys with me, in particular, Hunter for what I thought would be an impossible battle.

Not only did they fast track my TPD claim in 3-4 months (I thought it would be no less than 12+ months) but also fought to get funds back to me in an IP overpayment dispute that was clearly due to my funds incompetence and mismanagement.

On top of their amazing legal skills all the staff, particularly the receptionists, were so caring friendly and compassionate. I am truly grateful guys for all your hard work. Thank you thank you thank you. - Haiz

Starting with very little information at my end they were there with me to navigate my obligations and get the ball rolling (I was clueless). Did all the work for me. They have been a great team. There skills are impressive and they really do care.

Nothing to be scared of at all. Glad to have had the experience. I won a lump sum. Thank You - Jason B

John and Patrick were amazing! Unlike other large corporate law firms these guys listened to me carefully and compassionately, they treated me as a real person as opposed to just another case number in an automated claim system. They really thought about my claim and carefully considered my individual case before proposing a well thought out legal plan of action.

On top of this, their fee structure was very reasonable and John made a particular point of saying he didn’t want to charge me anything if they didn’t get a result for me.

Throughout the process I was kept informed at every step and Patrick was never too busy to take my calls even after hours when I was overseas. In the end, even though the case had already been won, Patrick went above and beyond by lodging and winning an extra claim for an interest payment, despite not earning any additional fees for that additional claim. I cannot thank them enough or recommend them more highly. Thank you guys 🙏 - Mark F

When I took up my TPD policy, in addition to the one I had with my super fund (and was not even aware that I had it), I never imagined that I would ever have to use it… That is where Berrill and Watson Lawyers fit into the frame… they came highly recommended, but exceeded my expectations and then some.

Pretty much every aspect of my case, handled by Marissa and John, was carried out with utmost professionalism, businesslike manner and, what is very important to me, a person of ill health, with great empathy, tact and personal touch. They organised the payout of the smaller policy (super fund one) first which allowed for some relief and settled my nerves a bit. Then onto the bigger case… it took a long time and a lot of effort from Marissa and John but the insurer finally came through. Marissa was with me every step of the way, she followed up with the insurer with amazing regularity with zero need for prompting or hassling. John made sure I was updated on the bigger picture always providing me with possible options and various strategies to employ depending on how the situation could develop.

Thanks to both Marissa and John I was always prepared in advance for that next crucial move. Last but not least, the Fees. There is a lot of hearsay about the exorbitant fees lawyers charge… not Berrill and Watson, though. Their fees were fair and very reasonable and I can safely say that they were definitely deserved. I have no hesitation in recommending services of Berrill and Watson to anyone unlucky enough to be in need of claiming on their TPD policy. - Rom L

Paul Watson and Hunter Thompson of Berill Watson lawyers provided successful representation and professional support in my wife’s TPD claim. We had previously pursued an insurer in an income protection claim and this was an extremely drawn-out and difficult experience. Hence we decided that legal representation would strengthen my wife’s TPD claim.

Unfortunately reviewing legal firms specialising in compensation claims was a lengthy and complicated process. Most operators’ promise of ’No Win, No Fee’ arrangements fail to accurately describe the truth behind their cost agreements and lack transparency regarding legal costs in relation to a received compensation award. In comparison, Berrill & Watson provided a detailed and comprehensible fixed fee proposal and immediately responded to all our queries prior to their formal engagement.

It is essential to be able to clearly communicate with your lawyer and for your lawyer to be able to promptly convey case-related matters well. We felt Paul and Hunter were approachable, actively listened to our concerns, and promptly acted on our requests. Information they conveyed and instructions for action were clear and easy to understand. Their assertive interaction and correspondence with the insurer confirmed that we made the right decision which, including our well-preparedness, contributed to a positive claim outcome within a reasonable time frame. Our thanks to Berrill & Watson, we would recommend them to others requiring similar assistance. - Stefan K

They are so friendly kind and easy to communicate with, I couldn’t recommend them more highly. - Andrew & Sue

I would and will recommend The team at Berrill and Watson to anyone looking at submitting a claim or who like me submitted a claim but was getting the run around.

However, the team at Berrill & Watson were supportive, tireless & efficient throughout the entire journey. In addition, Berrill & Watson are experts in this particular field of law and can be congratulated on achieving a successful outcome for BOTH of my claims.

Whilst that was likely possible, once I committed to B&W, their professionalism and knowledge of the intricacies took away all of the frustrations and emotions.

My family and I are so thankful for Berrill & Watson Lawyers. From the first phone call the wonderful staff made arrangements for Norm McMurray to come to my house. Thank you, Norm, for your understanding and explaining the process. It made me feel at ease. I had previously seek advised at another lawyer’s firm and was greeted very rudely and looked down upon. It was an awful experience. Thank you, Shannon and Joanne for keeping me up to date and your understanding. My illness is quite rare to be deemed a clinical illness by some medical specialists or not by others. The entire process of claiming my insurance from beginning to end was an emotional journey that Berrill & Watson Lawyers understood. Emotionally issues may be not covered in any legal documents, but I can’t begin to describe the help I received. If any reader does have any concerns with insurance claims, please do not hesitate to get in contact with Berrill & Watson Lawyers. You will not regret such decision. - Jose C

I can not praise enough the experience of my family in dealing with Berrill & Watson and in particular Michael Bates. Following a tragedy in the family, the life insurer, not so surprisingly started to look for reasons to not pay out. We sought advice through word of mouth as to who were the best lawyers to work with. Berrill and Watson were referred to from a few people I trust in the know. As a legal practice they were impressive, maintaining a light, guiding touch early on as the threat of claim refusal was being played out. In our dealing we experienced a high level of integrity. They did not seek excessive fees for service and never underplayed what was at stake for the family. We highly recommend them as a legal practice around any potentially life changing insurance disputes. They know what they are doing. - George H

We’d give “Berrill & Watson” branch in Melbourne not 5, but ‘10’ stars if we could! As my TPD claim was very complexed, old and not straight forward, I was told by other law firms that I would not be successful in my numerous claims.......the Melbourne staff through their knowledge, experience, determination and professionalism were able to successfully promptly receive 100% results in not one, but all of my claims! Not only did I receive my full TPD payment, they also successfully made the insurance companies pay me interest! Tom and also his Fantastic staff Mary, Rhiana and Patrick continuously assisted me from start to finish. They made a very complex and difficult time for me less stressful and a lot easier to cope with! This is especially important when you have a serious chronic illness like me.....the less stress the better! Even though I’m located in Sydney this was never an issue. They would keep me constantly updated during the whole process, meaning I never had to chase them up, which is unlike many other law firms. I found this Amazing! Also I knew upfront exactly what their fees were, meaning no unexpected costs unlike others firms who were very vague! I have never met or dealt with a legal firm as good as this one! I very, very ‘Highly’ recommend the Melbourne office of “Berrill & Watson” to everyone!!! I’d like to Sincerely Thank all of the staff there. Their overall Professionalism, Service, Compassion and Understanding was ‘Outstanding’, and also for getting me the best results possible, for which I am extremely grateful for!

I can't speak highly enough of the team at Berrill & Watson. I have had a very complicated case and prior to B & W had two other legal firms represent me. The first well known firm dragged my claim on for 5yrs with no result, the 2nd after a few months told me my claim was complicated and recommended that Berrill and Watson would be the firm to help me. So true!! In a few short months Berrill and Watson had secured me a successful outcome (which was not without it challenges) and they did so without causing my already heightened anxiety to increase. To David, Christina and the team. THANKYOU - Kim W

The process of applying for a Superannuation Disabilty Claim raises all sorts of daunting issues and the paralegal staff were both efficient, capable and gentle throughout. I am most appreciative of all the efforts and consistent clear communication. This outcome has made life less stressed financially and allowed me to focus on my health and wellbeing that was not available to me by financial constraints. Many thanks for the patience and kindness of the staff at Berrill & Watson Lawyers without whom I would not have known I could make a claim and much gratitude that this has been a successful outcome. I will continue to refer friends and acquaintances in the hope that they too can achieve a successful outcome. - Pia S

Honest, reliable and personable are the three best words I can use to describe Berrill and Watson. My experience with Paul initially was very reassuring as he knew so much information off the top of his head that other law firms were taking days to find out. Dealing with Tess has been amazing. Her caring and attention nature leaves you knowing she’s doing everything in her power to move things along. There were no surprises with costs, everything was as expected! I highly recommend this team to get you results in a timely manner. - Steve G

I highly recommend Berrill & Watson Lawyers. I was dealing with Michael and he is fantastic to deal with, he will give you an honest opinion and is highly knowledgeable in all superannuation issues. My TPD claim went on for many years with another law firm and then I went to the SCT for help, both were unable to get me an outcome. Once I engaged Berrill Watson I was very surprised how quickly they were able to get things done. My claim was successfully granted approximately 9 months after I first contacted Michael. In the context of how long I was waiting from previous avenues this was quite quick. I thank the team at Berrill & Watson Lawyers and if you are having trouble with your claim you should definitely contact them. - Joseph C

Hunter is a life saver. Its with much gratitude and sincere thanks to the team at Berrill & Watson that I can now heal after a work place caused the decline in my mental health, so much so I was suicidal. Hunter organised my income protection claim, professionally managed with sincere care. I have since learnt that one in five Australians have reported that their workplace caused their mental illness conditions. If this can happen to me it can happen to anyone, If you find yourself in this situation Berrill & Watson are the team to turn to. - Fiona C

I was fortunate enough to meet Tom at the outset, his manner and approach was reassuring. From there on this mindset seems to flow through the business. They come across as genuine in their efforts. From the outset I was kept informed and despite being overseas for a while everything was handled confidently and with minimum fuss. Despite my lack of understanding and confusion on my part, Josh showed admirable patience and empathy. Dealing with these matters can be daunting.offputting and confusing however I was always reassured and helped when needed. A really great experience and highly recommended. Thank you all. - James D

My experience was amazing, not once did I feel uncertain or left wondering along the way. From my first meeting with Paul Watson, I knew that this was a law firm truly cared about my circumstances and was committed to seeing my case through to the very end. Tessa my paralegal was so lovely and kind and never once did I feel I was taking up her time with my calls and emails. Tessa was quick to return my call and email. So grateful as right from the beginning I was informed of costs etc.. other law firms were not up front in the first conversation . Berril and Watson are the very best. - Hanna d.

Dear Tom,

I know the decision was not what we were looking for but I feel we won!

This fight has lasted ten years now and I am glad we saw this to the end; maybe next time if there is a similar complaint the Tribunial will look at things differently.

I just want to say thank you for taking my case on, it was such a relief. When we first talked i could tell you were a gun....then i realised not only did you protected me from the vultures, you listened compassionately and judged the right moments to tell me things which were not in my favour. I had been bullied for so long I forgot what human decency felt like.

I would also like to pass on my sincere thanks to your assistant Mark. At first I thought I would need to relay my story again but to my surprise he was up to date with my situation and showed the same professionalism and a dose of compassion. Several times he just called to clarify a response which in turn made me feel we were all on the same page. Thank you as sometimes I was not in a good space mentally and would ramble about the injustice taking place.

Finally, if anyone i hear needs help with these matters.... I will certainly without any hesitation pass your number on with high praise. There is nothing I can fault about your company.

Thank you for helping me regain trust back in humanity.

With much respect Helen

I would like to thank Tom Cobbin and all of the wonderful staff at Berrill & Watson for not only providing a very successful outcome with my TPD case in record time, but also for taking the stress out of the process. After wasting three long years with two previous lawyers that got me nowhere, I turned to Tom Cobbin at Berrill & Watson. Tom is honest, diligent and knows his stuff.

I would have to say that they may be the best TPD lawyers in the country. If you have a TPD Claim through your Super, the biggest mistake you might ever make, is not showing to Beril & Watson first. Highly Recomended!

Kind Regards David Kennedy

We would like to thank you all for your assistance in regards to achieving a positive outcome with our insurance company MLC. I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in 2000 and since then my health has deteriorated. We previously put in a claim to MLC without success and we feel that without your assistance this time the outcome would have been the same.

The degree of professionalism and support we received from you and your company was outstanding and we will be forever grateful. The difference this will make to our lives is huge and without your help we feel this would never had happened. Once again thank you very much Robert and Yvonne

***** HIGHLY RECOMMENDED ***** My husband had a claim for TPI which we fought ourselves for a year before seeking help from Paul Watson. He was compassionate, thoughtful and cared about us as people. He really went the extra mile to achieve the desired outcome for us and we are thrilled with the results he achieved. Paul was always contactable, thoughtful in his responses and really considerate. He is calm, fair, assertive and everything you would want in someone acting on your behalf in such a stressful situation. I strongly recommend his service. - Elisa Kovacs

The team at Berrill & Watson are fantastic, they always ensured I was informed of every process and took the extra time to ensure all of my needs were looked after. I strongly believe their knowledge and experience in the field of superannuation / insurance is the reason why we won such a high profile case. A big thank you to Michael and his team, for making this experience so comfortable through out the process and showing genuine interest in my outcome. They are highly recommended and I continue to refer friends who unfortunately in the need of a lawyer who have resulted in positive successful cases.

Michael Bates from Berrill & Watson was absolutely amazing in assisting me with a life insurance claim!

He went above and beyond to ensure that we received our claim in full. A wonderfully approachable, friendly man who was exactly the kind person you would want in your corner throughout an extended dispute with a large corporation during a very difficult point in your life.

Would recommend a million times over.

I almost gave up on my insurance claim on my stolen tools multiple times but thanks to the non stop professional advice and support and time from Berrill & Watson Lawyers I kept following their advice and couldn't believe it when my insurer replied to an email i sent on Berrill & Watson's behalf saying they accept my claim (after 3 months of trying to do it myself) I can't thank them enough and would highly recommend anyone with insurance issues to allow Berrill & Watson lawyers to put their immense knowledge to good use!
