From our clients

Both Bree Knoester and Lucia Nguyen were extremely helpful and friendly, while being totally professional. I was kept fully informed at every stage of my legal action with each step along the way being discussed with me. There were no surprises and any queries I had were always responded to promptly and respectfully.


Thank you to Bree for fighting for me and making me feel worthy. She was so kind and patient, I could tell her anything and she was so supportive. The service I received was second to none. Bree connected professionally and emotionally and was so caring and thoughtful. It was an amazing and supportive experience.

Bree, thank you for your tremendous support during my case. It took so much pressure off and allowed me to focus on my recovery. You genuinely care about your clients and that’s very difficult to find these days.     


Seven and a half years ago my life was changed irrevocably by an accident…

It has been an incredibly difficult, emotionally challenging and soul-destroying time in my life, and something I would never wish on anyone.

Bree, your gentle and professional advice that made me realise that it was not all my fault, and over the past few years working with you all I have rebuilt that part of my self-esteem and my diminished confidence. I am forever grateful for the huge amount of work and effort that was put in by you all as a team to affect a positive outcome.

Lawyers get a bad wrap a lot of the time, but it is people like you that are led by genuine values of doing what is right and what is fair that give your profession a good name.

Lucia, you have been so responsive and thoughtful, and always accessible, thank you so much.


Bree did a fantastic job for us and we could not speak more highly of the courteous and professional way she dealt with my case.


I would definitely recommend Bree to anyone.


Bree was very professional and helpful. I felt safe and understood. She made a very terrible and traumatic time in my life better.


I came to Bree after being treated appallingly by an ASX-listed firm that was only ever interested in making a profit for their shareholders. They couldn’t even get the name of the defendant correct on court documents let alone accurately outline the circumstances of my injury, but tried to bill me for their mistakes anyway!


But from the moment I met her, Bree understood my claim and its significance, and genuinely wanted to help me get the justice I deserved. She kept me informed of the process every step of the way and I always felt supported – especially when we were forced to go to trial, then appeal. But we won and an important legal precedent was made that will help other injured workers get their justice too against the almighty resources of their employer, their employer’s insurance agent and WorkSafe Victoria who runs the scheme.


Bree made an incredibly difficult period of my life much better and for that, my family and I will be forever grateful. I honestly don’t think you could find a more professional or competent legal representative willing to fight for what’s right. Thank you so much Bree.



Bree was exemplary in all areas. The process was stress free and she went above and beyond our expectations. It was a smooth path to settlement.


The Payne family wish to extend sincere thanks to Bree Knoester for her professional service, advice and guidance throughout our recent mesothelioma compensation claim.

It was a pleasure and an experience to have been associated with Bree for the last 6 months, and we are very satisfied with our final settlement outcome.

All the best for the future and we hope that you achieve your goals and objectives.


Hi Bree, just a quick reminder to you and your team that what you do matters long term, not just at the time of a positive outcome. My daughter graduated from grade 12 recently - and I was here to help her achieve that milestone.


Having complete confidence that in terms of my case whatever could be done was being done, and with a very high degree of skill, allowed me to focus on the slow battle with PTSD.


That contributed significantly to me firstly just still being alive and secondly to me being able to gradually improve. I’m pleased to say that journey is continuing in a positive direction. So this is a milestone that you guys contributed to achieving.


Thank you from all of us. What you do, and how you do it makes a difference.


I can't thank you enough and appreciate the quality of advice, professionalism, your compassion and passion for your work.  

The approach of Kathryn and Jyoti was immaculate and thorough, empowering me to think rationally and make informed decisions.

I have spoken to many firms (big and small) about my case, the quality of work and process you have presented is manifolds above and beyond the standards out there."


A few weeks after Alan Maxwell was diagnosed with mesothelioma in 2015 his daughter reached out to Bree Knoester seeking legal guidance assistance and support. Bree was able to quickly bring a claim on behalf of Alan and his family, so that he could focus on his health and family.

A non-stressful six months from start to finish with Brave Legal.  Very knowledgeable and caring.  Thank you.


Brave Legal provided an excellent service to myself and my family.  


They always provided a quick response and adequately explained any enquiries we had with clarity and honesty.


Bree and her team made a situation that was difficult into something that became a seamless endeavour.


We always felt supported, heard and cared for with every step of the process. No question was silly and no request was too complicated.


From the very first contact Bree was wonderfully warm and approachable while also delivered a very professional service. Lucia provided an excellent support role.


Bree Knoester and her team have been so efficient yet so supportive and compassionate.  The whole process has been stress-free for our Dad, which was more important to us than anything. 


Bree had such a deep understanding of everything involved with our claim process and the law.  Bree truly tried to achieve the best possible outcome, which was what was achieved in the end. 


We credit the team and their professionalism for such a smooth process.  Thank you Bree, Lucia and the team for all your hard work and care.


The advice I received was well-researched and delivered in a timely, measured and professional manner.

My input and involvement were encouraged to achieve the outcome I was seeking.  Brave Legal provided me with service excellence and were compassionate and supportive throughout the process.


Brave Legal always gave me confidence to believe that my case would be resolved.  No question asked, or concern raised by me was ignored, and I always felt the empathy from Bree, Lucia, and those working with them.


I will be ever grateful for a very successful outcome.
