“In pursuing a medical negligence claim and after dealing with two previous solicitors, I was recommended to have an initial consult with Vertannes Georgiou. At the time I was extremely depressed, frustrated, angry and seemed to be lost in life. From the first day I met George Georgiou, I knew I had finally found the right solicitor to assist me with my claim, which gave me some relief during a very difficult period. Mr Georgiou did not have the “grandiose façade” that I had previously experienced with other solicitors, in fact he was down to earth, very easy to talk to, understanding, sympathetic and very knowledgeable in the field of medical negligence. What particularly impressed me was that he was easily approachable at any time, and would consult with me at every step of the process, so there were no surprises or anything being done without my consent. I would highly recommend Mr Georgiou to anyone in pursuing a medical negligence matter. I would also like to say that other members of the team, particularly Lynda and Dushka were very helpful and professional. I am stating the absolute truth and I am confident that anyone who is in need will not be disappointed with Vertannes Georgiou.”

“I was first referred to Errol Vertannes at Vertannes Georgiou by a relative connected to one of
Perths leading Barristers. I had however already engaged the services of a lawyer whilst in hospital recovering from life threatening injuries due to road trauma. The first lawyer was also a contact from somebody in my immediate family therefore I felt some form of loyalty to stay with them. Over a period of 16 months or so I could not get any straight answers from the first lawyer while all the
time he encouraged me to keep phoning or emailing with any queries I may have. All I wanted was a clear explanation of the legal pathway into the future and what sort of compensation I could expect. I was met with legalese jargon at every query, the whole time being mindful of the till being rung at every turn, thus over time losing confidence with this Lawyer.

I’d had Errol Vertannes contact details for about 12 months at this point and decided to contact him for a second opinion. Errol met with me the following day and within our one hour obligation free meeting he explained, without me prompting or asking questions, everything I had been trying to find out for the previous 16 months. All of a sudden it was as though a veil of secrecy had been lifted and I could see the light of day. I hired Errol without hesitation and he represented me to my ensuing settlement. Throughout the whole process, Errol mentored me and was very clear in his explanations and I felt extremely confident that I was in the hands of a very professional, experienced, competent and capable Lawyer and Firm.

When I received the account from my first Lawyer, it seemed excessive and Vertannes Georgiou went into bat for me and negotiated the bill down to almost 50% of the original account. The fees charged by Vertannes Georgiou were extremely fair, in fact after my settlement was agreed on Errol went back and negotiated his own fee to be paid by the insurer and not out of my settlement.

Since my settlement I have recommended Vertannes Georgiou to others including my Mother who had an injured shoulder after a traffic accident. Errol obtained a settlement for her far in excess of expectations. I would not hesitate in recommending Vertannes Georgiou to anybody seeking legal representation.”

“For anyone who has had an accident, and is looking for a Lawyer this is what happened to me.
On the 20th of June at 10.15am while working as a rigger constructing a Mine Site in Western Australia I suffered a crush injury resulting in amputation above elbow of right arm.
Arm was reattached at Royal Perth Hospital
4 1/2cm shorter.
After 10 operations and 3 major infections (over 4 years 9 months) and further shortening of arm by 4 1/2 cm my claim was settled by Errol Vertannes of Vertannes and Georgiou.
During that time of nearly 5 years when the Compo money ran out and I even had to pay my own medical bills, I hit rock bottom emotionally and financially.
Errol went “above and beyond the call of duty” as a Lawyer in his unwavering support of me.

To the extent there was a time when I felt he was one of only a few people in the world I could trust.
If you are looking for a Lawyer of unparalleled Honesty and Integrity I wholeheartedly recommend Errol Vertannes. If anyone would require further information Errol is authorized to give my email address though I cannot disclose the $’s involved in the Settlement for legal reasons.”
