Stringer Clark has had a presence in Ararat for more than 10 years.
The full time office is staffed by injury lawyers, Ron Pearce and Michael Burdess, the only injury compensation experts in Ararat.
The office was opened partly to help locals avoid having to make the trek to Melbourne or Ballarat for expert legal advice.
"Ararat has a strong sense of community and people living in the area like to do their business locally, so it made sense to set up an good local legal office here," says Michael Burdess.
Car accidents and traffic injuries feature in the work we undertake for locals. As do workplace injuries.
Michael says that the type of work is varied but it is always rewarding to get to know the clients and their concerns.
"I think we've earned a reputation locally for getting results. Part of that success is obviously being professional and knowing your area of law backwards, but you also need to find satisfaction in being able to help people," she says.
While Ararat is a major service centre for the region, the city also sees significant traffic volumes passing through on the highway between Adelaide and Melbourne. This means that our lawyers are sometimes called on to advise truck drivers and other vehicle drivers who may have been part of a collision on the road.
Workers who are employed at the meatworks and other manufacturing operations are also clients of the firm. Stringer Clark is able to assist workers in pursuing WorkCover claims or with advice generally on health and safety issues and employment conditions, along with other legal matters.
"We offer real expertise, especially in all types of injury compensation matters."
"We are always open for appointments, so it's easy to arrange an interview."
"And we offer real legal expertise that is within easy reach" says Michael.
Stringer Clark Ararat offers a comprehensive range of legal services including: WorkSafe claims (including WorkCover), TAC claims, public liability claims, conveyancing and Wills & Probate.
