11 years ago, Julia Gillard introduced the fair work act to radically improve workers rights and swing the balance of power their way. No workplace law firm has done more than McDonald Murholme to make that law work for employees, whatever their income, whatever their status, whatever their problem.

McDonald Murholme provides strategies to make the law work effectively for employees as it is intended to do so by the lawmakers. McDonald Murholme has successfully supported employees exercising their rights over the long-term since the Keating government completely changed the landscape, creating a raft of rights for employees outside of the union movement.

    I wouldn't hesitate to recommend McDonald Murholme. From the initial consultation, right through to the resolution process, the entire team was supportive, knowledgable and approachable and made what can be a difficult situation much easier. Specifically Trent and Alexandra provided a high level of service, and engaged with me in a very personable manner. I am extremely satisfied with the service I received.

    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.
