Our Story

The year was 1996. It was a time vastly different from that of today with DVDs still dominating the shelves and Google yet to be invented. Our Founder and Principal Lawyer Greg Smith opened the doors to our first Smith's Lawyers office. It was his own experience with the complex compensation system after a car accident at 18 that motivated Greg to ensure others didn't face it alone. He knows all too well the feelings of anger, confusion and loss.

Since then, and over the past 25 years, our firm has been there right alongside thousands of clients in similar boats. In the past financial year alone our team of compassionate and experienced lawyers and paralegals have helped recover $28 million in settlements for our clients. We're proud to stand up for our clients, making sure they understand their rights and can seek the justice they deserve.

We’re with you every step

We know that navigating the system can be overwhelming and complex. Our team will take the time to explain every step to you, so you feel empowered to move forward.

We genuinely care

At Smith's Lawyers, you'll never feel like a number to us. Each of our expert staff is committed to helping you through this challenging period in your life.

No Win. No Fee. No Catch®

Our ‘No Win. No Fee. No Catch’® promise provides access to risk-free compensation. What differentiates our promise is that many other law firms require you to pay the other side’s legal fees and expenses if your case loses in court. Unless we win your case, you won’t pay us or anyone else a cent.

Our results speak for themselves

In 25 years, we've never had a single client out of pocket. Last financial year, we recovered over $28 million in compensation for our clients. We get the results our clients deserve.

Absolutely fantastic service from the team at Smith’s from start to finish. Emily was amazing in communicating everything, making sure I was aware of everything and was well informed before making decisions.
