Obtaining the best compensation
for our injured clients
Since 1983

We are passionate about fighting for our clients to get the best outcome possible. Our clients may be in pain and our goal is to make the other side pay. Our success is enviable, which has been achieved through attention to detail; taking the time to understand our clients; accurately assessing, anticipating, and countering the responses of the other side; and most importantly not being intimidated by any perceived unequal power of the other side.

We speak plain English (avoiding legal jargon) and our passion for servicing our clients extends to a mobile legal service, where we come to your place.

We offer a no obligation free first interview, so you are comfortable in your choice; charge on the Court approved scale rate (not on inflated hourly rates), and offer no win, no fee services in most cases. Feel free to contact us. There is nothing to lose and everything to gain.

Graeme Kirkham
Adelaide Injury Lawyer

I am an expert Personal Injury and Compensation Lawyer, having practiced since 1983. I hold degrees in Bachelor of Economics and Bachelor of Law (Monash University).

I come from a family of hard workers. My father was a builder and my mother, had her own business. I funded my university studies by working jobs at night and during semester breaks.

I have lived in capital cities and provincial areas alike. I currently live in the Adelaide Hills with my family. My work travel takes me all around the Adelaide Hills, through the southern suburbs, the eastern suburbs and up to Salisbury. I have also enjoyed doing voluntary work in the past with Rotary and more recently as a driver with Hills Community Transport, taking residents to medical appointments and other engagements.

I believe my upbringing; work ethics and community involvement have enabled me to relate to and communicate well with my clients in areas of law and matters which can be complex and stressful.

I have trained and mentored many young lawyers and graduates and have watched with immense satisfaction their professional development and success.
