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.”
Recent Testimonials for David Hodge
“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.”
“Slater and Gordon have provided excellent legal advice. I have received a very professional service from David and throughout this process he has been extremely thorough with providing guidance and provided excellent communication during this 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.”
“David’s pragmatic approach, mindfulness of escalating costs and razor-sharp eye for austere terms and conditions was evident off the bat. Attention to detail must surely be paramount in such times; David and his team were consummate in their approach, ensuring several aspects in my case were amended in my favour. This level of scrutiny was worth every penny of the fee alone. My advice; give David and his team a call and judge for yourself how Slater & Gordon stack up against the competition.”
