“I don’t have enough words to express, how grateful I am to Turner Freeman Lawyers entire team. Turner Freeman Lawyers not only helped me with a physical injury claim being accepted by the insurance company but also helped me to achieve my psychological/ bully and harassment injury claim accepted by the same insurance company at the same time.
Turner Freeman lawyers delivered exactly what they had anticipated in the very first meeting with me. This confirms their client commitment and reliability.
From my whole work cover experience, I found Turner Freeman Lawyers to be highly qualified, highly experienced and extremely professional. Their communication with me has been beyond excellent. They have kept me up to date with claim process in an efficient manner. I will highly recommend Turner Freeman Lawyers to anyone who is suffering in silence with a work related injury or a non work related injury.
I believe if Luke Power and Thomas Schembri plus their whole team can get both my claims accepted at the same time, then they have the full capacity to help anyone who is in need of help out there Once again Thank You Turner Freeman!”
“I would highly recommend Luke, Thomas and Georgia’s work in all workcover related issues. They are hands down a fab team.”

“Everyone at Turner and Freeman have been wonderful during my long process. Thomas has been excellent. He always comes straight back to me and provides me with information I need. Thank you so much for all of your help and support during a very difficult time.”
“I would like to take this opportunity to express my sincere gratitude towards the team at Turner & Freeman Parramatta, in particular Luke Power & Thomas Schembri for the success of my TPD claim. One thing I’d like to point out is that when I approached other law firms advertised on TV, they were quick to turn me away because I was told I had a complex case. Luke was highly recommended and since the initial consultation he made me feel comfortable, explaining the whole process and remained positive about pursuing legal action against an insurance company in relation to a not-at-fault motor vehicle accident. Even in times of despair, he remained optimistic and assured me everything will be fine. I would highly recommend Luke for Personal Injury cases and I am forever grateful for the successful outcome.”
