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

I cannot speak highly enough of the services provided by Berrill & Watson Lawyers Melbourne. The TPD process can be long and lonely, which makes it especially important to select a firm with integrity, compassion and responsiveness. In each of these areas, Berrill & Watson excel: providing the necessary motivation and encouragement to ensure your claim reaches a just outcome.

Special thanks to Marissa and her predecessor Mary, who were both tenacious in arguing my case when it mattered, and supportive and understanding in guiding me through a long and sometimes uncertain process. I recommend Berrill & Watson to anyone wanting the winning combination of professional excellence and a personal touch. Thanks all - Anne L

I was introduced through a very helpful Anglicare financial adviser to Berrill and Watson. Way back in 2018. They assured me that I had a very good chance of success. With the peace of mind of no win no fee.

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

5 Star Google Review - ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

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

Special and a big thank you to Patrick. What an amazing individual you are, your firm is lucky to have you. You are a professional, caring, empathetic and considerate person.

You not only helped me, you went above and beyond when I was in between a rock and a hard place for standing up to corruption in the medical industry.

I have been recommended by staff at Monash Health for a role as a peer support worker, even in my current position I speak highly of you and will continue to recommend patient’s to you and your firm in the medical industry, who are in need of an honest lawyer to represent them in mental health tribunal’s.

I cannot thank Tom Cobban at Berrill & Watson enough for his outstanding service & professionalism. I had a very complex issue in relation to my Superannuation company and Tom was so helpful and took away all the stress and pressure I encountered.

From the moment I spoke to him I knew I was in good capable hands and I went with my gut feeling knowing he was knowledgeable and experienced. Tom resolved my issue and not once I had to follow him up as he was so responsive. That's what you call great service with a positive outcome. Thanks once again Tom!!.... - Lisa I

August 2021 I very highly recommend Berrill and Watson Lawyers Brisbane, Tessa was my lawyer throughout my claim along with Paul. I can not recommend this firm enough.

The experience of my claim was nothing short of highly professional, very affordable, responsive straight away to any concerns and questions. Tessa took the stress away from me during my claim and made the experience so easy to deal with. Tessa is simply the most amazing person. Nothing was ever a problem, I was made to feel like I do count and was made to feel exceptionally comfortable throughout the whole process of my claim. I'm claim always felt like it was top priority and and each time I would call or email, responses were so promp.

I wholeheartedly thank both Tessa and Paul from Berrill and Watson for all thier hard consistent work on my claim. Again very very highly recommended this firm for any of your claim needs. Simply the best! - Sheralee M

I would like to share and recommend Berrill & Watson lawyers, my case was fortune designated to Ms Joanne O'Neill, throughout her professionalism and attention to detail, my TPD case was a successful claimed in 2.5 months, her service is excellent and fees are fair and right ratio to your my claim, B & B lawyers were the 2nd firm I used, my first firm I’m not sure their level of service by but their fee is way more expensive …..

I strongly recommend B & W‘s service and their fee policies. - Colin T

5 Star Google Review - ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

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

I recently had need to make a claim on my insurance within super. I spoke to a couple of other larger law firms before settling on Berrill & Watson. I made this decision based on my initial conversations with Tess and how incredibly responsive she was to my various questions (one of the other big firms only followed up after claim was already settled!).

Tess and Paul were generous with their time and took all the stress out of making such a claim. They gave me excellent advice and kept me up to date throughout the claim process which was successfully completed in a short time. I cannot recommend their services enough for anyone needing to deal with such an insurance claim. They are great people to have by your side. - David W

Luckily we contacted Berrill and Wastson Lawyers. They helped us to claim the insurance money. Without their help, I don't think we were able to claim anything from the insurance company. Sadly my wife passed away one month before the settlement of the insurance claim. Special thanks to Joanne O'Neill to handle my case. - Me O

Berrill & Watson were recommended to me through a friend after I had spent almost a year of getting cast aside by the insurer & public health system. Hunter was able to get things done quickly and thoroughly.

What was an extremely stressful time and process for me was made a lot easier and the entire team were always very helpful and quick to respond. As their policy (currently) is no win no fee you really have nothing to lose. I only wish I had of contacted them a year sooner instead of trying to go it alone. - Bec C

Berrill & Watson Lawyers were highly recommended to me via a reputable Lawyer for my TPD claim process. Recently my TPD claim was approved! Like most people I thought I'd never, ever need this TPD compensation but I did. I have a workplace Psychological injury. Feeling so overwhelmed, I first spoke to Norm, and then Gabrielle and David who really supported me from there on. They both held my hand the whole way through the process and I was able to proceed at my pace. They are all so kind, professional, genuine, caring, and supportive and was always treated with respect.

Later when I spoke to my Financial Councillor he said he refers clients that need this support to Berrill & Watson Lawyers also and only ever receives positive feedback about their service and outcomes also.

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

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

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!

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.

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.

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

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!
