My situation.

I am 65 years of age and to many employers this marks the beginning of retirement whether you like it or not. I had worked for this company for over a decade and going to work every day was no longer just about the money. I was good at what I did and found joy in going to work. That being said, soon after I passed the retirement age it became increasingly more obvious my employer believed it was time for me to step down. According to the employer, someone of my age is expected to spend more time with family.

I felt humiliated and undervalued. I was told to draft up a succession plan yet I had never tendered a resignation nor did I intend on doing so. I was eventually forced into accepting a demotion before they decided to terminate me.

What McDonald Murholme did for me.

I knew exactly what I wanted and decided to leave. When I finally decided to turn to McDonald Murholme I was pleasantly surprised to receive so much more than I had expected. My lawyer dealt with my situation swiftly and kept me up to date throughout the process. He was able to negotiate an exit for me which consisted of my ex-employer paying not only compensation but also my legal fees on top of that.

Most importantly, my former employer agreed to change my termination of employment to a resignation and with this my reputation had been restored.

Our clients' satisfaction is pivotal to our own success.

    I couldn't recommend the team from McDonald Murholme more. Mr Sam Nottle was efficient, professional and achieved a wonderful result. If you are questioning whether to go ahead with an employment matter legally, I would urge you to do so. The team at McDonald Murholme made the process easy & reduced all of my anxiety and stress. Thank you again, Mr Nottle & team, I can't express my appreciation enough.

    I found Arthur Hambas & Katherine Boyles extremely professional & compassionate in my dealings with them. After telling Arthur that I felt the details surrounding my redundancy felt wrong he took on my case & secured me a better payout from my employer. I would not hesitate to recommend Mcdonald Murholme to anyone that has a feeling that something isn't quite right. I greatly appreciate everything you did.
