Motor Vehicle Accident Compensation, Practice Group Leader
A reputation for fighting for ordinary people’s rights brought Martin Carrick to Slater and Gordon, where he practises in industrial and employment law and workers compensation. Martin also specialises in Motor Accident Claims.
His commitment to his clients’ interests typically sees him representing unions and their members in matters including award breaches, unfair dismissals, occupational health and safety, breaches of anti-discrimination legislation and criminal matters.
Working to enhance the effectiveness of unions and giving individuals the opportunity to redress unfair treatment is the focus of his practice. His belief that “unions are vital to preserving fairness in Australian society and maintaining the egalitarian nature of Australian culture” informs everything he does on their behalf.
Martin graduated from Australian National University in 1984 and has been working at Slater and Gordon since 2005.
“I work for the union movement and its members and believe that unions are vital to preserving fairness in Australian society and maintaining the egalitarian nature of Australian culture.”
