I could not recommend Zac at Schreuders enough. After dealing with an extremely difficult injury, the outlook of my case was not looking promising. Zac persevered and as a result I was fairly compensated. He cared about my situation and had a great deal of empathy. Thank you again!

After a serious pedestrian v. car incident, I learned that the NSW Third Party Insurance system is heavily skewed in favour of insurers. In spite of serious life changing injuries, compensation looked unattainable for even a sophisticated claimant. Even help with the basics such as in home support is a battle.Schreuders methodically built my case and guided me through the assembly of evidence that resulted in a fair settlement in an unfair system.If you think you are getting through the system without a lawyer in your corner, think again. Shout out to Zac Mackic, Kim Wiles and Hayley Bonica. Schreuders know their stuff.

I recently had a TPD claim through my superannuation and they were dragging their feet, Umrah handled the entire thing fantastically and made everything so much easier for me. Umrah was up front with everything such as the process and costs involved and kept me up to date every step of the way. Paul became involved with the case and was also extremently transparent about the process involved and steps to take etc.I would 100% recommend Schreuders , Umrah and Paul to anyone who needs to make a claim through their superannuation.

If you think you have been injured due to negligence , then I recommend the team at Schreuders Lawyers should be the legal representatives you choose.This organisation took me on board when others would not. The first step was to investigate whether I had a case worth fighting for in the eyes of the law. When this was established that I did have a case , then the legal team went straight to work on my behalf. The case was settled to my satisfaction without having to go to court , promptly and without costs. The team displayed a high level of professionalism , skill and judgement on all that they did. At all times I was kept informed of developments and thus this was a far less stressful journey than it otherwise may have been. Therefore , I suggest you try Schreuders first. I don't believe you 'll be disappointed.
