Turner Freeman Partner and Aviation law expert Terry Goldberg assembles global legal team to assist families affected by the Malaysian Airlines flight MH370 incident.


Together with Stewarts Law, aviation lawyers of London and Wisner Law Firm, aviation lawyers of Chicago we have formed an advisory and legal group to assist all of the families of the passengers tragically lost on Malaysian Airlines Flight MH370.

It is more than likely that the rights of the families of the passengers at law extend well beyond the boarders of Australia, Malaysia, and China. The majority of litigation claims arising from airline accidents take place in Europe and the United States and together with these lawyers we have been at the cutting edge of this litigation over the last few years.

We have represented Australian passengers, families of Australian passengers and crew in respect of airline accidents in recent years in Cuba, Indonesia, Africa, South Australia, Virginia and throughout Australia and the Australasian region.

Together with Stewarts and Wisner Law Firm we have an internationally focused group of lawyers who can assist all of the passengers’ families.

No Win No Fee

Together with Stewarts Law and Wisner Law Firm we will accept retainers in the matter on a no win no fee basis to explore and pursue all causes of action arising out of this tragedy.

Initial pro bono advice – advance payment rights that may be invoked in respect of passengers on Flight MH370.

Under article 28 of the Montreal Convention the airline and its insurer is required to contact you and provide an advance payment. We have resolved, without obligation to advise you pro bono when that occurs. It is important to obtain advice on every issue arising out of this tragedy.
