Without wanting to divulge too much personal information we had some unfortunate circumstances earlier this year which left me unable to work. Berrill & Watson were extremely helpful providing sound advice and advocating on my behalf. They are knowledgeable, trustworthy and most importantly they are compassionate. I cannot recommend Berrill & Watson Lawyers highly enough. - Claire G

A big thank you to the team at Berrill and Watson. I was getting nowhere with my legitimate claim for trauma protection and these guys persevered, kept me informed during the journey, charged a fair amount for their services and got the 100% outcome that I was entitled to. They were very professional and understanding of my circumstances. Thanks so much to Patrick for his constant updates. I highly recommend these guys. - Martin B

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

To Tom, John and associates

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

Couldn't fault Berrill & Watson (Moonee Ponds) in what they have solved for my family members Insurance claim. The claim went for two years. As soon as they went too Berrill & Watson it was solved in a matter of months with a great result.

***** 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!
