Please don’t trust Slater and Gordon lawyers company, they prey on vulnerability and are only interested in lining their pockets from your unfortunate circumstances.
After finding myself in a difficult employment matter, I turned to who claim to be the “professionals” in the field for advice. I laid out my case over the phone and was told by SG that they could definitely help me for the cost of 2-3hrs of their time.
Their pushy technique to “close you” and secure your initial payment will leave you thinking that they are on your side and that you will receive the work that they outlined to you over the phone.
This couldn’t have been further from the truth. After being led to believe I would receive a tangible outcome stating my legal rights to my employer for the cost of 2-3 hrs time, all I received was an email stating back to me the facts that I had already presented to them in our initial phone call. They claimed that this was their “advice” and justified the full 3hrs. How can telling me what I already told you be deemed as advice?
After a series of complaints, they reduced my bill marginally but were sure to follow it up with legal threats if I did not pay, leaving me no choice but to concede in a complete waste of money whilst in a difficult financial and personal situation myself and no further forward legally.
Please don’t trust them, they will quote 1 thing over the phone and quickly change the goal posts as soon as you instruct them leaving you financially out of pocket and not delivering what they promised.
Disgraceful actions from what should be a professional firm. I am Very disappointed with Slater and Gordan Law firm.
