David Hodge Principal Lawyer, Employment
I was impressed, from the outset, by David’s subject matter knowledge, expertise and professional manner. He explained, in clear and concise terms, the facts of the matter, the options open to me, and the balance of risk likely to be associated with each potential course of action.
David is clearly an accomplished negotiator. Because of his evident knowledge and skills, I had the confidence and trust in him to ‘hold my ground’ when negotiations were at an advanced, and tense, stage.”

“From my initial telephone consultation, I knew I was in good hands with David working on my case. He clearly and diligently explained my options to me and any possible consequences and outcomes that could occur from each step objectively. David also clearly outlined the cost implications for each option, leaving me well informed to be able to make a decision on how to proceed. One thing that became quickly apparent to me was that whichever option I chose to proceed with I could be confident that he would be very diligent and focused on getting me the best outcome.”
“After experiencing sex discrimination whilst on maternity leave, I found David Hodge to be extremely competent in handling my case from the beginning, which concluded with a more than satisfactory settlement. David had an excellent knowledge of the legal points which were relevant to my situation, and was thoughtful and considered in all our dealings, which set my mind to rest during a very challenging time. His experience in discrimination at work cases was clear, and his insight into the employers’ perspective was very helpful. What set David apart in particular, was his confident, calm and objective manner. At all times, his focus remained on mine and my family’s best interests. The settlement which David helped me reach with my previous employers has afforded me much-needed breathing room as I assess my next move, which has been invaluable for me and my new family. I cannot recommend David Hodge at Slater & Gordon highly enough. His experience, professional rigour and calm objectivity was a great asset to my family at a difficult time.”

David has been very clear and detailed each step of the way with courtesy and always been responsive and took the strain out this situation. I could not ask for a better solicitor to deal with my employment issue.”
