We had such a Great experience dealing with Berrill & Watson, that I could not speak highly enough of them. Initially, I had reservations about out-sourcing this, thinking that I could manage it myself. 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. I was in the safe hands of Marissa and Joshua (and Tom), and their communication was always timely and clear. B&W took all of the stress of the process away. Thanks so much! - Matt S

Don't think twice, you will never regret to appoint Berrill & Watson Lawyers! My claim journey started 2015 ended 2020. it has been a long process as the insurer declined once but Michael & Josh made the claim success at the end. I would never think that I could get both of claims. I found Michael through google search and he gave me a impression that I can pursue the claim through him. Josh had been assisting and follow up my case he never delays respond or update the cases. Their team made a great result finally. I was very blessed to have them working on my cases. thank you guys, You are the Champ! - Jina R

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

I cannot thank Berrill & Watson Lawyers enough for their outstanding service, professionalism and support over a 12 month period dealing with a tricky administrative issue in relation to my Superannuation company. Their compassionate, consultative and thorough manner resulted in a positive experience and outcome in my case, exceeding all my expectations. Patrick Williamson-Hill and John Berrill listened carefully and paid attention to all the minute details that caused complexity in my case, acting on each accordingly and in regular consultation with me. I have no hesitation in recommending this law firm to anyone wanting legal representation by people who genuinely care about you and who have excellent professional knowledge, skills and capacity to help you reach a positive resolution. - Olivia D

When I came to Berrill & Watson, I had very little confidence - I had been injured at my work and was almost penniless. I was met with warmth and assurance by their principal lawyer, Michael Bates and later assigned an excellent lawyer, David Boothroyd. Through many supportive and friendly phone calls with David, he kept me involved and encouraged me to keep believing and- in my feeling - against the odds they won the claim for me. The gratitude I have is very deep for the level of professionalism, skill, care and diligence they exhibited - John R

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! Thank you all again! - Virginia D

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

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 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

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

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!
