After 45 years formerly as a senior employment and media lawyer, I am now a registered industrial agent offering fast and specialist employment advice and representation for a fraction of lawyers’ fees and with a minimum of fuss and formality. My rates for providing fair work advice and representation* are widely rated as the best value in Western Australia. I can provide a free diagnosis for unfair and unlawful dismissal cases.

I also work on Sundays when it is often convenient for people, especially busy small business employers and sole traders, to talk to me about confidential workplace issues. My general method of working is by telephone consultation which allows me to keep my rates well below those of my colleagues such as legal practitioners and it is also favoured by almost all of my clients for value and convenience.


* Upon payment of standard telephone consultation fee https://fairworklegaladvice.com.au/fees/

*** I do not provide advice or representation about or for workers compensation
****Pro bono; I allocate a proportion of my professional time to pro bono advice and representation. The budget for that for calendar 2021 has already been exhausted which I attribute to the effects of the pandemic upon employment security.
