How We Work

Margalit Injury Lawyers fight for the rights of injured Victorians. We are committed to providing the highest quality legal advice at an affordable price.

We understand that navigating the legal system can be difficult. This is particularly so when you have not been involved with the law before or when you are suffering the consequences of an injury. We are here to be your sounding board, and to guide you through the process. No question is too small and we welcome you to contact us at any time during your claim.

While we are here to support you, we will also vigorously fight for your rights to ensure that you receive the maximum compensation possible.

There are many ways that a claim can be resolved, and we will ensure that we listen to what you want; whether it be to resolve your claim early through negotiations, or to fight your case all the way so you can have your day in Court.

We come to you

Using our years of experience, we have tailored our firm and our processes to suit injured Victorians. You may be suffering from pain, mobility restrictions or depression. We understand that this means you might not want to leave the house. For that reason, we will meet you wherever you prefer including the comfort of your own loungeroom.

Our values

  • To deliver maximum compensation.
  • To make the highest quality legal advice available to everyone, regardless of income.
  • To care.
  • To make the complex simple.
  • To fight hard.
