Emma was a solicitor on a compensation case on my behalf. Emma’s communication skills, professional approach and honesty was very reassuring through my claim. She was always positive, and forward thinking, looking at options and following through. Her reassurance was always comforting for me.
We have reached the end of the road at last, and we have been so fortunate to have you advocating on our behalf. I have really appreciated your hard work, and that you kept me informed every step of the way. You made it so easy for us, and we always felt confident that we were in safe and competent hands. Without your encouragement and assurance of success, we probably would not have considered pursuing compensation. I wish you every success and bright future.

Dad was very apprehensive about going through the compensation claim process due to the bad experience he had with another solicitor and firm previously. The way Emma handled the case with compassion and empathy mattered so much and more than I can put into words. Emma was on the ball the entire time, having able to finalise the claim in 4 weeks. I would highly recommend Turner Freeman and Emma to anyone who’s looking for a law firm.

I’d like to thank you and the team at Turner Freeman Lawyers for all your hard work and support during this trying time in my and my father’s life. I am pleased to hear that the claim was successful and that the process seemed fairly hassle free and straightforward on our part.
On behalf of Dad, Michelle and myself, we would just like to extend a big thank you for handling Dad’s compensation case. When you start this journey, you do not know what to expect and I can honestly say that throughout this whole lengthy process, we have found you to have honest and open communication and this has been very much appreciated. We recognize the empathy and patience that you have shown to our Dad during this difficult time and your professionalism in the whole process. We are grateful for the knowledge and expertise that you have in this area and obviously with a favourable outcome.
Once again, we thank you and your staff for handling Dad’s case and we would not have any hesitation in recommending your firm to other applicants.

Emma was fantastic! My father was diagosed with asbestos related cancer (mesothelioma) in February this year. Emma submitted his claim for compensation which was approved and paid within 3 weeks. Her experience and knowledge meant that the process went smoothly with very little stress. All throughout, the processes were carefully explained ensuring full understanding by the family. Emma treated my father with the utmost respect and a genuine concern for his deteriorating health. I would highly recommend Emma Jahnke to anyone seeking asbestos related compensation.
