About our Colac office

Stringer Clark Lawyers Colac is staffed by local people with local knowledge.

As compensation lawyers servicing the Colac and regional community, we specialise in injury compensation claims including:

  • WorkCover claims
  • TAC claims or traffic accident compensation, and
  • Legal claims for personal injury in places where there is public liability.

Stringer Clark opened its doors in Colac in 2002, recognizing there was a demand locally for an injury compensation law firm with local knowledge.

We have four personal injury lawyers who work out of our Colac office, being Jodie Harris, a partner of the firm, Peter Claven and Creon Coolahan.

While a broader range of legal service is available at the office, we specialise in compensation for work injury, car accident injury and other types of personal injury.

The office services many people who work in the main local industries. These include health care, timber and forestry industries, and dairy & meat industries.

"Knowledge of local companies and industries is important because it helps you understand the nature of the injury and the circumstances under which it has occurred. And that means we are able to better represent our clients and obtain compensation for them," Jodie Harris explains.

Jodie says there are clear advantages to using Stringer Clark as your local Colac law firm.

"We deal with the little problems as well as the big ones, unlike some law firms who really aren't interested in what they may class as trivial matters" Jodie says.

"For example, if your WorkCover Insurer stops paying for your medication or treatment, or providing home help assistance we will lodge a request for conciliation and fight to have these expenses paid."

"At Stringer Clark we understand that winning those battles is important to our clients".

She offers another example of dealing with the TAC.

"You might find that the TAC is refusing to acknowledge any new medical complications that may have arisen some time after your car accident, and that they are baulking at continuing to pay your medical payments."

"We'll go in hard to have them reinstate your benefits," she says.

Jodie explains that the relationship between a lawyer and their client is critical.

"You always strive to understand your client's circumstances and find out a little about who they are. It makes you want to get the best result for them," Jodie says.

Stringer Clark Colac offers a comprehensive range of legal services including: WorkCover claims, TAC claims, public liability claims, family law, conveyancing, wills and probate, superannuation claims and disputes, and victims of crime claims.
