Jimmy Savile Abuse Claims

Slater and Gordon Lawyers are helping over 170 people bringing abuse claims against the Savile estate and linked institutions. For an update please click here.

Hear what one of our client says:

"I have experienced Liz and her team to be highly professional and incredibly caring in their work with me on the Savile case. How can I get you to know though how professional, how caring??

Really, unless you're me, I doubt that you can.

For this is a hard case, a hard time for me. And it goes on, and on.

So, sometimes I'm on the phone to Jessica, ranting and raving. And she stays with it, with me. Another time I can revert to the child that was sexually assaulted by Savile and I'm crying. Again she hangs in there. And yeah, that's what Liz and her team do, they hang in there and they say "hang in there Dee". 

They believe me. They fight for me. On and on.

I'm sure others can put it far more eloquently than me, so I'm just speaking from my heart when I say the guys at Slater and Gordon work with good practice, excellent communication but far more importantly they work ( and work bloody hard) with good heart, with love, love for justice, love for humanity."
