Schofield King Lawyers – the best compensation lawyers Port Macquarie has to offer
After servicing the mid north coast region from Sydney for a number of years, Schofield King Lawyers set up a full-time office in January 2016 with one goal – to have the best compensation lawyers Port Macquarie can offer – and give the people of the mid-north coast the opportunity the deserve to be properly represented when making compensation claims.
We’ve succeeded at that goal, and we do indeed have on staff the finest compensation lawyers Port Macquarie and the mid-north coast has access to. Our Port Macquarie office is headed by the Director, Andrew McQuilkin, who, after many years as a Sydney-based lawyer, relocated his family to Port Macquarie. Now, the office is large and growing, with six members (including two solicitors), just three years after opening.
Schofield King Lawyers – Port Macquarie office
Our Port Macquarie compensation office is situated on Clarence Street opposite the Glass House right next to Town Beach. There is generally plenty of parking around, and after you finish chatting with us, you can enjoy the ambience of the great local cafes and energy of the town.
When you speak to lawyers, you want to know that they’re locals themselves, and care about the community. Many of the firms that claim to have offices in Port Macquarie don’t – they rent boardrooms or shared offices, and only visit the area by appointment. We’re different. We’re the best compensation lawyers Port Macquarie has, because our staff members are integrated into the community and understand the people of Port Macquarie and the legal issues that can arise.
Additionally, our Port Macquarie team can draw on the expertise and resources of our Sydney office and team. For instance, your Port Macquarie lawyer can attend Sydney when required should a hearing, mediation or settlement conference be scheduled to take place there.
Andrew McQuilkin excels in acting and advising in all areas of NSW Compensation law. He leads a team of two other solicitors being Melissa Obrist and Christine Neufeld.
Melissa Obrist joined the Port Macquarie Compensation legal team in 2018 after relocating her family from Brisbane. She is able to advise and act in all areas of compensation and also has experience in Plaintiff class actions.
Christine Neufeld excels in TPD matters. She is meticulous in her approach to claims from start to finish giving all her clients the best chance of having their TPD claims approved. She is a highly empathetic astute lawyer.
Katie Thomas and Skye Auld provide the paralegal and administrative assistance in the Port office. They liaise with clients and ensure all matters are moving. They are both Port Macquarie locals and are highly respected by all our clients.
Should you wish to attend our office, we’d be more than happy for you to stop by and visit. You could consider:
- Getting a second opinion on your compensation case – which we of course offer on a no obligation and no win no fee basis.
- Getting your case assessed for TPD. We’ve found that many people have had claims run – but have had valuable TPD policies which have not been pursued. We will always run a check to determine whether you have TPD insurance.
