Legal fees
We offer a fully funded “no win, no fee” arrangement.  This means you do not have to pay for our time, effort or expertise while we secure your compensation. Our fees are only payable if and when your damages are paid. The institution will also have to contribute to those fees and expenses.

We also fund the cost of expenses such as the fees to recover records and the cost of medical reports. This means you will not be put to any expense while we pursue your claim.

At RMB Lawyers, we understand how difficult it is for Victims of Crime to call us or step into our offices. We are experienced in these matters and always act with kindness and compassion.

If you are a victim of a crime and wish to discuss your claim on an obligation free basis, please email us via this website or contact our office on 1800 681 211 to speak to one of our specialist compensation lawyers.
