Customer Service Standards
About Our Commitment to Our Clients
We believe that at their best, lawyers serve as navigators; using our expertise and passion for advocacy to guide injured Victorians through a complex legal system. To assist us and our clients, we’ve developed a set of Client Service Standards.
We provide our clients with information and advice in plain English that explains their rights simply and clearly and identifies the major steps in the process.
At Polaris we are committed to providing our clients with the highest quality legal advice, expertise and support to ensure that your rights are protected, and that their compensation is maximised.
We acknowledge that seeking legal advice can be confronting. We are committed to making the process of accessing compensation simple for our clients. We will work alongside our clients in a way that ensures that we do not add additional stress to the process.
