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 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.
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.
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.
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.
Greg is our Founder and Principal Lawyer, based on the Gold Coast. He has worked exclusively in compensation law since opening Smith’s Lawyers in 1996.For the past 25 years, Greg has run this firm with the kind of care and attention clients need – because he’s experienced the compensation system first-hand after a life-changing injury at 18.

I would highly recommend Smith’s Lawyers. The work they put into my case was exceptional, even with such a busy working life and at most times being unreachable. They went above and beyond to ensure the best possible outcome. I am very pleased with their work and the result.
"I highly recommend Smith’s Lawyers! They are very easy to deal with, all staff from the reception ladies through to the lawyers are friendly and action emails and phone messages promptly. I couldn’t have asked more from any of the team. I’ll certainly use Smith’s again in the future if I need to"
"Greg, Luke and the team at Smiths Lawyers were absolutely amazing in the handling of my cases from day one they were so proactive right through to finalisation of my claim. It’s true what they say no win no fee ( A broad statement) we won my claim and the cost associated with the claim was as such after deductions."
"People cringe at the thought of dealing with lawyers but my experience so far has been an absolute pleasure."
