"Cannot speak highly enough of my experience with Shine Lawyers Carindale.
From the first tentative call l made about a work injury l was told someone would ring me. l then spoke to Paul Zapata who listened. Gave no false promises but explained the whole process in easy to understand language. He helped me throughout the long process in a supportive and compassionate manner. In the end I had a positive outcome, all thanks to Paul and the Carindale team at Shine."
