As a Practice Group Leader with Slater and Gordon’s Asbestos team, I help people with all asbestos-related disease claims and have acted for hundreds of people suffering from mesothelioma, asbestosis and lung cancer. I am experienced in a range of claim types, including common law damages claims and claims for statutory entitlements.
I have been practising personal injury law since 2001 and I understand that for most clients, making a claim for compensation can feel daunting, especially when they are dealing with a serious disease. On top of giving sound legal advice to get the very best outcome for my clients, I make sure the claim process is as stress-free as possible.
One of our team’s best results was getting compensation for a client with mesothelioma, who in the 1980s was working multiple cleaning jobs to make ends meet. At first she couldn’t recall the name of her employer or identify the exact location of her exposure. We were forensic and tenacious in our approach and were able to achieve a good outcome for her.
I was proud to be recognised as the Leading Dust Diseases Compensation Lawyer (Plaintiff) in Australia by Doyle’s Guide in 2016 and in Western Australia in 2017.

Feedback from our clients
Tricia Wong and team dealt with us with compassion and understanding throughout our exposure with Slater & Gordon. You could not ask for a more professional approach and at the same time maintaining human needs of their client. They were thorough and left no stone unturned. Without bias I can recommend Slater & Gordon to tackle all aspects of the legal challenges that are faced. A big Thank you to Tricia and Jo who were the face of Slater and Gordon ,they are a credit to their profession. Paul & Evelyn Towler.

A very big thank you to Tricia Wong, Shelby and the team for your much appreciated help and guidance through our recent litigation process. These were uncharted and somewhat daunting waters for us, and you piloted us safely through them with professional expertise, patience and consideration to a satisfying conclusion Thanks for the many prompt phone conversations and clarifications, added to which was a real sense of personal interest and touch, which was much appreciated, as the legal technicalities can seem a bit stark to the layman. It was a pleasure to meet you and feel the warmth and confidence you exude. Wishing you every blessing and success in every way. We feel we would have no hesitation in acquiring your help again if needed. Kind regards. Jim & Beth Dixon
