Adviceline Injury Lawyers (ALIL) has marked three years in Springvale with an event held at their newly refurbished and extended offices.
The event, attended by members of the local community, also marked the arrival of new staff member, lawyer Marie Pham. Ms Pham will work with the other members of the Springvale team: partner Penny Flint, graduate lawyer Daryl de Penha, and legal assistants Lucia Nguyen and Tran Ong.
Member for Lyndhurst, Martin Pakula formally opened the extended office.
Ms Flint said she was very excited to celebrate the milestone, saying it was important that the firm's services were accessible to the community.
I think it's really important that we have an office that is in a local area and is close to our clients, Ms Flint said.
We know for a lot of our clients it could be difficult to travel far distances. Going to the city could be troublesome for them, especially if they just want to drop off some paper work or come in to sign something quickly.
Ms Flint said that over the past three years, the ALIL team has been made to feel very welcome in the Springvale community.
We have been given a warm welcome by the community and have made many friends including medical practitioners, psychologists, physiotherapists, optometrists, lawyers and many others.
These are all people who work hard to provide an excellent local service and all people who have a great and positive impact on the lives of so many people in the community.
Ms Flint said the team are proud to offer an accessible no win-no fee service to those in need.
We know that often when an injured person calls our Springvale office for the first time, they don't know what to ask. They have just been injured at work and they just want to speak to someone to tell them what to do and what they are entitled to. We are proud to offer that service.
If you or someone you know has been injured at work, it is important that you get expert advice from people who understand your local community and employment market. We invite you to speak with one of our professional personal injury lawyers on (03) 9321 9988.
