The opportunity to help people in what is a distressing and vulnerable period of their lives is a privilege that Suzanne Sandford does not take lightly.
After 30 years practise in personal injuries law, she remains deeply respectful of the level of trust invested in her when injured workers and their families let her into their lives. Ensuring that her clients feel comfortable, listened to and fully informed is no less important than her aim to secure them the best result.
Compassionate, attentive to detail and an easy communicator with people from all walks of life, Suzanne works with clients diagnosed with terminal illnesses as a result of asbestos exposure often decades earlier, from the environment, while at work or while renovating their homes.
Suzanne graduated from the University of Melbourne in 1977 and has been basically working at Slater and Gordon ever since.
“I have always relished the fact that my work has enabled me to help injured people. Acting for asbestos disease victims is a privilege.”

"On behalf of my family, I would like to thank you for the wonderful outcome you achieved with my father’s case. You have shown dad that he does have worth and that sometimes the underdog wins too! Until he received the cheque I really don’t think he believed compensation was possible.
Suzanne, thank you for making this whole process stress free and for your caring throughout. You truly are a lovely lady and we wish you much happiness and continued success in life."
