Important Turner Freeman Victories

Turner Freeman has the largest, most experienced and leading dust diseases practice in Australia. For over 65 years we have represented thousands of victims affected by asbestos related diseases.

Since 1952 our team has achieved countless victories for our clients and fought for changes to compensation reforms across the nation.

Did you know?

New South Wales Managing Partner Armando Gardiman ran his first asbestos compensation claim in 1982. He successfully prosecuted the first product liability claim in Australia against James Hardie & Coy Pty Ltd, in 1987.

In South Australia, Turner Freeman Lawyers has represented more asbestos victims than any other law firm, and our Partner Annie Hoffman has run more successful dust diseases cases to trial in South Australia than any other lawyer.
