“We called on Trent Hancock at the very last minute to assist with an issue I was having with an employer. Having never gone through something like this before I was unsure what to expect. Trent met with me via video call within a few hours of reaching out. He was understanding, clearly articulated all possible scenarios and was extremely professional. Without Trent’s work, I would not have gotten the outcome I did. It was a huge weight lifted off my shoulders and I felt so confident in Trent. Any matter with an employer where you are unsure, it is definately worth having a discussion with either Trent or someone within their business who are extremely knowledgeable and a pleasure to deal with. Thank you so much Trent.” – Martin
“I was hesitant to start a process with the Fairwork Commission as my knowledge of this particular area of law was very limited. I contacted Jewell Hancock Employment Lawyers and received a free consultation with Trent to discuss my concerns with him.
Trent immediately put me at ease with his no pressure approach and his knowledge of Employment Law. The cost was also much less than the other firm that I had spoken to. I proceeded with my claim and I am delighted with the outcome.
Trent made the entire process not only stress free emotionally but stress free financially as well.
I would highly recommend this company. They are professional, courteous, knowledgeable and compassionate. The service was second to none. Call Trent to discuss your concerns…..you really won’t regret it!” – Debbie
“Trent and his team provided excellent advice at a very reasonable cost. I loved that they offered clear options and set fees so I could make an informed choice and also their generosity in making time to talk when things felt urgent. They got me a quick and very satisfying outcome with my employer when nothing else had worked. I highly recommend them.” – Heather
