Wonderful people to deal with always in contact with me made me feel very safe . Great outcome would highly recommend . Thank you Polaris
Nada and Nikolina at Polaris went over and above for me. Nada listened carefully, explained each step to me clearly and followed up on what she said she would do. Her approach is ethical and respectful, she is kind and genuine and I trusted her completely.
I recommend Polaris in how they managed my public liability case.
As a client of Polaris Lawyers I would like to say many times thanks to Nada Breik and her assistant Nikolina.
After my lower back injury happened at work my life crashed and I had no idea what I should do. My employer didn’t give me any support with Work Cover, and luckily I found Polaris Lawyers and personally Nada made a huge amount of work to advokate me and to give me legal assistance at every step of the whole process with Work Cover.
Both Nada and Nikolina doing their job on the high level, didn’t need ever to chase them, remind or to push for anything. It is such a pleasure to know you both and I wish all the best in the future.
The whole team at Polaris was incredibly supportive and understanding from the first meeting until the final result. I could not have asked for a more caring, compassionate and driven team of professionals who ensured that I felt comfortable and heard at every step. In a time of great emotional distress, their expert knowledge and willingness to continue to go the extra mile was so greatly appreciated.
I would highly recommend them to anyone needing professional support and guidance. Kind Regards,
My case has brought up difficult emotions. I have been treated with dignity and respect by my lawyers throughout a long and arduous process.
Highly recommend Nick as a professional, knowledgeable and compassionate lawyer. He represented us in an NDIS case and we had a favorable outcome.
Nick represented my young son in a difficult case that ultimately settled well in our favour. Nick and his team provided us with great legal advice and representation, and were very professional, pragmatic and hard working.
Nick’s also really easy to talk to, collaborative and explains things well in simple lay terms without all the legal jargon. But I think what I most valued was Nick’s compassion and trustworthiness – Nick genuinely cared about getting the best outcome for my son and family and I felt his advice and decision making was always in our best interests. His reassurance along the way also helped our family keep going with our case during a long, stressful journey.
I’d also like to highlight that Jessica in the team was also fantastic. Jessica was very approachable and professional, and always made time to share updates, respond to any questions and provide information whenever you needed.
Nick, Jessica and team, I can’t thank you enough for all your help and support – This outcome will have such a positive impact on our son for the rest of his life.
3 Years ago I sustained a workplace injury that left me unable to work. Nada Breik from Polaris took on my claim and I’m extremely grateful she did.
Nada was so supportive and reassured me every step of the way. I really felt that she had my back. She kept me regularly updated and was very responsive to any questions and concerns.
I cannot recommend Nada or Polaris highly enough.
Polaris Lawyers very professional lawyers who demonstrated unlimited dedication and commitment to my case despite all the challenges we faced in my case.
Very responsive to any queries or concerns I had.
I personally didn’t think I had a case but they approved me wrong. No matter how weak or strong your case is, don’t hesitate to contact them, I strongly recommend Polaris lawyers.
Polaris Lawyers and Hamish thank you for that and have handled my Work injury claim with the utmost professionalism. Communication has exceeded expectations and the results from the case met expectations that had been discussed and finalised with Polaris. I would highly recommend the Polaris!!! Thank you
After sustaining a workplace injury, I was referred to Polaris Lawyers by a lawyer friend. I was introduced to Nada Breik and instantly felt she was the right person for the job.
Nada has many qualities that make a great personal injury lawyer. She is a very empathetic, caring and compassionate person, who has a strong determination to do the best she can for her clients. Both Nada and assistant Nikolina were very responsive to any queries or concerns I had.
I highly recommend Nada and Polaris Lawyers. They have had a very positive impact on my life.
I would like to thanks Nada for her never unforgettable support during hard time on our family. I still remember the day, when I first met Nada and during our talk about my husband car accident, Nada’s polite nature, thinking from our perspective and her honest advice really told me that she is going to be our lawyer in my husband accident case.
During throughout the whole legal process, she always called us and kept us up to date as a true lawyer should be. We were never worried or never had any suspicious thought because she was always there for us taking care of all our legal needs.
We thank Nada and Nikolina (Her emails were always on time) for their help in my husband accident case.
I don’t really know where to begin. I’ll try to leave out my life story.
I had no idea the TAC existed. Imagine my stress waking up from a coma from a serious bike crash. Anxious to get on my feet and provide. My wife came along Polaris and spoke with Nada.
She instantly removed any fears I had, she was so personable, empathetic and human. Everything was clear and easy enough to understand. I felt safe and looked after and that my interests were at the centre of things. I didnt feel pressured or pushed to drag things out I felt included in everything, I felt genuinely heard, respected and understood.
It’s been an emotional 2 years, and I’m sorry to see her leave but the outcome I got was more than I thought was possible.
They are competitive and in the end I was expecting to pay 3 times the amount I did. My future feels secure.
Nada made the difference I wasn’t just a number I was a friend the professional relationship was never blurred but the rapport was strong. I have nothing but praise for her and her team.
I engaged Polaris Lawyers for a personal injury claim for an accident which happened in the State of Victoria. As I live in Queensland I had to find a law firm in Victoria to represent me in my claim.
From the outset, the team at Polaris Lawyers demonstrated unwavering dedication and commitment to my case. The level of professionalism displayed by all lawyers and staff at Polaris was exceptional. Not only were they highly knowledgeable and skilled in their field, but they also demonstrated a genuine care for my well-being. They ensured that I remained informed and updated about the progress of my claim and gave clear explanations through a very challenging period and worked tirelessly to secure a successful settlement.
I can wholeheartedly recommend Polaris Lawyers to anyone seeking legal representation, particularly in personal injury cases. Their dedication, compassion, and exceptional legal acumen make them a standout choice. Thank you to Nic, Ariella, Catherine and all the team at Polaris; engaging your services was undoubtedly one of the best decisions I made, and I am grateful for your outstanding support.
Nada & Nikolina were amazing, someone who truly cares..Life changing team, specially Nada
Thank you for everything
Nada Breik acted for me and l couldn’t recommend her highly enough, thoroughly professional and even more importantly, thoroughly empathetic and caring. Thank you Nada.
No words are adequate to express my gratitude to Polaris (Nada and Nikolina) for providing me with a five star professional service matched with their sincerity.
My outcome far exceeded my expectations, it was just unbelievable.
I think it is imperative I mention the fee charged. WOW, I almost felt embarrassed to pay so little in respect to my outcome and in comparison to rival lawyers. I feel I grossly underpaid Polaris for their supreme diligence and hard work.
I recommend Polaris to anyone suffering from a personal injury. Nada and Nikolina sent from heaven itself! Thank you, thank you, thank you.
Fantastic Lawyers, definitely recommend. Super diligent and great representation.
Some people, including myself, can be a bit reluctant & even a little nervous about approaching and engaging a lawyer to help in the event of sustaining a personal injury. Well don’t be.
As a result of recommendation from a good friend of mine that had been down this road we approached Polaris Lawyers concerning injuries my wife & myself had sustained in an accident. They immediately put our minds at rest, they were from the very start, kind, caring & understanding & in plain speak, not complicated legal terminology. They were in constant touch with us to explain our claim bit by bit.
The final result was that we were both awarded significant damages, & importantly with no additional costs tucked away.
Thank you so much Polaris and, in particular, Hamish Kelly who very professionally guided us through the whole process.
I’d like to say that my case had involved work cover and from the very start I was unaware of my rights regarding work cover and I was clueless on what to do.
Megan Caines was my lawyer for the majority of my case and she had come to my house personally, listened to everything I had to say and made me aware on the process, on communicating with insurance companies, appointments, paperwork’s, followups, she had done everything and this was a big relief to me as I was clueless. She never asked for anything more and really was a genuine and kind person who supported me through my tough time since 2019 and loved to help people.
Not only Megan, but her whole staff was very helpful and supportive from Yen Tran taking over when Megan was on leave to Leonie Bartlett and Nikolina Davcevski keeping great communication with me regarding the case. Megan Caines is an amazing person who left me reassured with her handling my case alongside her husband Geoffrey J. Smith who helped me with the finalisation of the case and really made me feel cared for.
I cannot express the amount of gratitude I have for Polaris Lawyers and the team in providing such a great outcome for my case and truly making me feel like I was with family and I never felt like a number.
I highly recommend Polaris Lawyers and their excellency in their service cannot be proved by just 5 stars, they deserve much more! Thank you so much!!
Polaris Lawyers were fantastic with managing my case and dealing with TAC. They are extremely professional, and helped guide my understanding of legal proceedings throughout the entire case. They were also sympathetic and comforting when it came to discussing the trauma aspect of my case.
Well make sure that you are going to be able to trust the lawyers and staff to provide the legal profession and support of the client (person)
Polaris Lawyers are unlike any other Personal Injury law firm. They have designed their entire service offering around providing not only the best legal advice and advocacy services, but also the best client care services too.
Client care is at the heart of everything they do, and combined with their innovative, tech-infused service delivery and triage processes, Polaris Lawyers really is one of the best personal injury firms in Australia!
I have been fortunate to have had the support of Polaris lawyers over the period of my personal injury claim. Not only did they provide excellent legal advice, they were also extremely aware of the emotional stress that a legal claim can have on a client.
I cannot thank them enough for the time the team extended to me, as well as the communication they provided to explain and reassure me along a very unfamiliar process. I always felt that my lawyers and the Polaris leadership staff were aware of my personal needs and this personal connection was very reassuring.
I highly recommend Polaris lawyers!
Highly professional and competent services, provided in a both friendly and accessible manner.
Nada is an amazing lawyer and the Polaris team is great. Highly recommend!
I am really happy I’ve done my thorough research because that led me to Polaris Lawyers. My case started during the pandemic peak, something that made my recovery quite challenging.
I am out of words for the dedication, professionalism and effort Hamish and team showed from the moment he took over.
As this wasn’t my 1st legal rodeo, I was treating the whole process with skepticism and caution, hence why I am extremely happy with how quick and efficient we managed to close this. If I had to do it all over again I would be stress free knowing Polaris team is in my corner of the ring. Also much gratitude to Maria (barrister) for her amazing effort on the big day for delivering the best possible outcome.

There’s nobody I would rather have on my side than Nick and his team. His compassion, empathy and generosity are angelic. His expertise and professionalism ensure the best possible outcome considering your needs and circumstances.
Despite our journey dragging out for 4 years, Polaris keep fighting for us just as vigorously until the very end. Nick treated us like family, not clients. He defies all negative stereotypes of a typical lawyer. We are eternally grateful for the victory the Polaris team was able to achieve with us.

From the first moment I contacted Polaris Lawyers, I encountered a warm, caring team. Nick spent time listening to my case and provided a path forward. Our matter has been ongoing since 2018, yet Nick never faltered, tired, or gave up.
Every step of the way, the level of care and professionalism was astounding. They wholeheartedly represented my disabled, non-verbal son who didn’t have a voice or someone to defend him. Nick and David (barrister) worked tirelessly for my son’s cause and our need for justice. This alone made me feel I had true strength behind me and gave me the courage to continue. They took on all the worry and work involved in the case. They were always respectful toward my son and sensitive to the trauma we were facing.
After the outcome, Nick came and visited my son at home. He showed that he understood Nick had fought for him and he had finally received the justice he deserved. The next moment was magical: he gave Nick a hug twice. That was his way of expressing gratitude to him.
I cannot recommend Polaris Lawyers more highly. They will represent you with sincerity, care, and wholeheartedness to the very end. The world would be a better place if it were filled with people like Nick Mann.
Highly recommended working with Polaris Lawyers. They are easy to work with, trustworthy and make the process as smooth as possible.
I had an excellent experience with Polaris Lawyers and cannot recommend them highly enough.
Following a traffic accident, I went to Polaris for a Personal Injury claim. Throughout the process, Nada and Nikolina were highly communicative, transparent and accommodating, making the process smooth, with minimal input required from me.
I always felt in control of my story, and that the case was handled with integrity. The Common Law Hearing was a surprisingly pleasant and easy experience – I had full trust in Nada and Maria, and feel confident that the best outcome was reached.
The team at Polaris is highly competent and attentive. Thank you Nada, Nikolina and Maria!
Great lawyers , i recommand without hesitation. Thank you again to Nada great lawyer and human being , We won my serious injury claim , great advices .
It gives me great pleasure to recommend the staff at Polaris Lawyers to everyone! Following my recent accident Yen and Tina looked after me wonderfully well, so very kind, communicating professionally at all times , and in such a helpful manner making it all easy to understand . Thankyou Polaris!
Yen Tran is a great lawyer. She is trustworthy, supper supportive and nice. She helped me know not only know my rights but also get them.
Initially I didn’t want to get involved the claim process as I was already suffered from anxiety and stress as a result of work accident. with her professionalism, she supported me through out the process with such outstanding and detailed explanation that resulted me wanting to lodge a claim. From start to the end she was really calming and understanding. I could have not achieved the desired result if I didn’t have her as my lawyer.
I highly recommend her to whoever seeking the result. Thank you Yen for all your efforts.
Yen Tran has done an excellent job for my wife. Yen is one of the best lawyers at Polaris. She is very professional, understanding and supportive. She encouraged my wife to pursue her rights and helped her to achieve a great result!
I highly recommend her if you are looking for a reliable and trustworthy lawyer.
I’m very grateful to Yen Tran and her team, they acted on my behalf, my matter was reviewed throughly, handled with skill, compassion and empathy.
My lawyer Yen Tran made everything very simple and easy to understand , i felt she always had my best interest in mind.
I really appreciate all the work you have done for me.
I would recommend Polaris Lawyers without hesitation.
Polaris Lawyers is an exceptional team of professionals. Thorough and genuinely thoughtful through every process of my case (TAC).
Nothing was ever too much; questions were answered and explained in as little or as much detail as I needed.
Nada was always very empathetic and responsive and made the entire process very easy. I cannot speak highly enough of her. From initial contact to a favourable outcome Nada supported me through all my decisions.
Thank you, Nada, for helping me close this yucky chapter of my life. You have a true passion for helping your clients and I have no hesitation in recommending you for anyone needing an honest and compassionate lawyer.
Polaris is knowledgeable, caring and loyal team of young professionals.
Personally I like that they are not pushy (very unusual for Lawyers).They do not make big promises but rather tell you how it is and what one can expect when making certain decisions.
From my experience Nada (Polaris Lawyer) was warm, supportive, intelligent, available and reliable at all times and for that I want to thank her and Polaris company.
The whole team at Polaris Lawyers are nothing short of amazing. They are sincere, supportive, thoughtful and professional. We couldn’t have chosen better representation. Highly recommend!
Nada is compassionate, understanding, professional, thorough and extremely good at what she does. She has been an outstanding personal injury lawyer, going above and beyond time and again.
I am incredibly happy and feel privileged to have had her as my lawyer. She has made such a positive difference to my life through what has been a very difficult time.
I highly recommend her as a personal injury lawyer and I highly recommend Polaris. The firm has treated me with respect and has been transparent from the get go.
I cannot speak highly enough of Polaris Lawyers…Best law firm I have ever had representing me. Very client-focused, compassionate and they truly care about achieving what is in their client’s best interest. Megan, Yen and the rest of the legal team did an amazing job on my case. I cannot thank them enough and I will certainly never forget everything they did for me. If you are looking for the best law firm…look no further.
Yen, Megan, Lochlan and the legal team at Polaris Lawyers exceeded my expectations. They achieved settlements in combined negligence and personal injury cases that helped obtain the medical care needed to recover and a modest financial settlement that helped balance out my pain and suffering. They were sensitive to my desire not to have to litigate or go through adversarial proceedings.

It was an absolute pleasure having Yen Tran represent us. If you ever need a responsive, responsible, passionate and highly competent lawyer – engage with Polaris Lawyers. Without a doubt you’ll receive high class service ❤️❤️
Yen was incredibly supportive she made a very stressful situation more manageable. Yen spoke in a clear and concise manner and I am so thankful for her support and guidance in what has been a very difficult time.

Such a fantastic Team at Polaris who assisted my mother with her workcover claim. The team went above an beyond what we thought with a fantastic outcome. Special thanks to Jessica and Yen for a great job
I found both Rebecca and Nada from Polaris lawyers to be very clear and upfront in every stage of my case. They always answered my questions and requests quickly and clearly and with empathy throughout my case. Thank you very much Roelof and Loren Kloppers
Polaris Lawyers was recommended to me by another reputable law firm after a negligent medical procedure. I can not recommend Nick and his team highly enough to anyone who needs an injury lawyer.
Nick made the whole process simple and clear whilst consistently reassuring me. His work behind the scenes sped the process up and made the case strong and clear. I will be forever grateful to Nick and Polaris lawyers for their work and effort in one of the toughest times of my life. Thank you for your clarity and communication.
I appreciate the efforts of Neda’s lawyer and her active team I recommend this center to all Australians They follow all issues very compassionately, bravely and with power One of the best legal service centers I wish I could give them more stars Asghar Mojtahedzadeh
Alex & Asghar
From the first phone call and every subsequent interaction whether by phone, email, meeting in-person and zoom, it was very apparent I had made the right decision to engage Nick and his team at Polaris Lawyers.
What an incredibly professional, compassionate, knowledgeable and proficient boutique law firm Nick has built. You are a master-class in customer service. Even throughout the pandemic or during a team member changeover, the support was seamless. Great outcomes could only be possible when you have a well-oiled machine from top to bottom. Well done and thank you to all.
Outstanding client-focused law firm. Nick Mann and his team worked above and beyond to ensure I was informed at every step, in control and most importantly, got the outcome I was hoping for.
When it comes to answering my question they were quick and highly responsive. Even though my case did not fall under their scope, Ariella was patient, very nice, and guided me to the right place. I felt I was being listened and attended with great care.
Nada is another wonderful person. She patiently explained and clarified all my questions. I can’t thank each and everyone enough with whom I spoke to at Polaris.
I strongly recommend Polaris and the team to people who have legal or legal related issues.
Thank you team 🙂
A friend highly recommended that I speak with Nick Mann, after a period in which I was unsuccessfully trying to navigate the legalities of my accident solo. Nick was prompt, diligent and compassionate and within a very short time I was able to relax and trust that I was in good hands.
Nick immediately took action on my case, which started with better helping me understand the legislation and our plan moving forward. I really value the open communication and the way I was supported throughout the process. It was such a relief. I will be forever grateful for the expert service Nick provided during such a stressful time.
I was given Nicks details from a friend and I will be forever grateful. Nick and Nada have handled two of my situations with incredible compassion, efficiency and professionalism. I was able to trust in their capabilities from the get go and felt a huge relief to know I had someone like them on my team which allowed me to focus on my own well being.
Nick and Nada genuinely cared about the case and wanted the best outcome for me. Thank you for working so hard for the great outcome we have achieved.
I was recommended to Nick Mann by a person who is very qualified in personal injury. Nick did a terrific job with my case. He was very professional and empathetic, carefully explaining what was involved and how the process worked. The result was a very good outcome at the top end of what Nick indicated at the outset.
Before deciding upon Polaris Lawyers to represent me in my medical negligence case, I had listened to a lengthy podcast with Nick Mann. The journalist asked the sort of complex questions that every potential client needs answers to. Nick’s belief system and heart felt responses with regards to how the law should be practised, in regards to better client- centred resolution, was what I needed to hear and instinctively felt, this was a Lawyer with a conscience and conviction.
The online application process was simple and our first meeting reinforced my decision to choose Polaris Lawyers. Nick listened intently, was empathic and respectful throughout and at no time was I made to feel that because of my age, ( not 21) their representaion would be anything less than what any client could hope for. His attitude was all about fighting the good and fair fight for justice and a positive outcome.
I had already experienced another well known law firm, initially infused with enthusiasm in regards to my case but 12 months on, was dismissed along with my file into the “too hard basket.” As disheartening as this was though, I had the unwavering belief and professional guidance from my outstanding hand Plastic Surgeon, Dr.John Crock. He understood clearly what had gone wrong, leaving me with a permanent injury and along with his medical ethics, expertise and courage, would establish in detailed medical reports, evidence in support of my case.
Having been dismissed by my first law firm, it was a blessing in disguise, as their limited understanding of the content within the medical reports submitted in support of my case, was concerning. In their final communication, the significance of the neurological findings, from a prominent “Neurologist,” who was referred to as “The Urologist,” were not viewed as important enough to continue our collaboration. I am aware that the area of medical litigation is extremely complex and having Nick and his team as my Lawyers, felt they were young enough to have the stamina and fortitude to follow through and with decades of medical cases between them, well experienced to understand the intricacies and expertise to approach my case, for the best possible outcome.
My legal team of Nick Mann, Becky Bass, Ariella Stephenson, Rikki Stanley and also my Barrister, Mr Paul Halley, along with all the other medical experts who presented so much evidence in support of my case, were outstanding. A formidable presence, overcoming all the challenges, to have justice served, in what was a complicated medical case. Their trustworthy and humane approach, their regular communication, even quickly resolving the occasional low point, meant they became my legal family, over the 2.5 years of collaboration. In practising the law, Polaris Lawyers walk the talk and deliver on what is expected when seeking legal representation. If I could give Polaris law firm 10 stars, I would because they are a super dedicated team of kind and empathic Lawyers, who never lose sight of their client’s needs and deserve whatever praise and respect is bestowed upon them ! I cannot thank you all enough for believing in my case and for all that you achieved. Many thanks and continued growth and success ! Yours sincerely
My initial meeting was with Megan who clearly understood my situation and legal concerns. She then went on maternity in the beginning filing of my case and handed over to Yen. Yen spent time getting to know what’s important to me, what current and future challenges concerned me. This is before we got to the case and injuries in which I was subjected to during my time of enjoyment. Absolute pleasure in working with her and seeking the best outcome. Thanks Yen
Generous with their time, they’re professional and extremely knowledgeable. We got advice from Megan on an employment matter and she was a huge help to my partner and I. Would absolutely recommend them.
After my accident I was confused as to which personal injury lawyer to go with, after a few initial meetings with a range of firms I decided to go with Polaris lawyers. This decision was based on my first meeting with Yen, who unlike the others was compassionate, took the time to understand my circumstances while offering advice on what she believes could be done.
Thereafter, from the point I signed with them right through to the settlement of my case, they provided me with sound advice and guidance while also trying to ensure the best outcome possible. I cannot thank Yen and the team at Polaris lawyers enough and would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a compassionate caring law firm where you aren’t just another file. My wife and I are quite happy with the outcome achieved for our personal injury case.
Consider this the word of mouth referral you get from a trusted family member or a close friend. The team at Polaris are kind, compassionate, understanding but most importantly, attentive and patient listeners. For our little family, the outcome we achieved with Polaris, was beyond what we even dared to imagine. Never pushy or rushed, their advice was always considered and in our very best interest. Polaris guided us through what could have been a very difficult, overwhelming and daunting process, but under their care, we felt safe and secure.
My experience with Polaris Lawyers has been very positive. Notably, they listened to my situation with genuine interest and concern, not just for my legal issues but for the physical and emotional impact on me. They clearly explained everything in simple terms and communicated with me regularly which was very reassuring. The staff I dealt with directly showed incredible drive and determination to do what was in my best interests. They treated me with professionalism and also friendliness. I’d have no hesitation in recommending them for personal injury claims.
Thank you for taking the time to send us your review. Please write your review below this text
I had a work injury about 3 years ago , after a big decision we needed to speak to a lawyer to find out where I stood with a work injury, my neurosurgery passed me a business card to Polaris Lawyers .
We made our way to see Megan , she listen to me talking about what happened, we also made it very clear that we weren’t there about the money , that we just needed guidance.
Megan explanation to everything was very clear and easy to understand, we was pushed into anything, we where able to come home and make our own decision.
Which we decided to go ahead with Polaris lawyers.
We only had Megan for a short time , and then our case was passed onto Yen .
Yen was very approachable again and continued on from Megan .
I found both Yen and Megan very caring , respected me as a person , they made everything easy as possible, nothing was a effort and was very reachable if any question needed to be answered .
I would highly recommend Megan and Yen .
I appreciated these ladies very much .
I am very much impressed by the amount of effort and work lawer Yen Tran Polaris lawer firm put into my motor vehicle accident case.she is definitely a tremendous lawyer and specially thanks Nick Man and overall good person.
What a brilliant team of lawyers!! Yen and Megan were exceptional in handling my case, a pleasure to work with. They were compassionate, thorough and efficient at all times, not once did I have to follow them up. I couldnt recommend Polaris Lawyers highly enough!
Was recommended by a friend to have Polaris represent me in my accident claim, you couldn’t ask for a better company. A big thank you to Megan and Yen for your professional expertise and supporting me through out this process, Highly recommend Polaris Lawyers.
I have been working with Megan, Yen and their team for a little over two years now. My decision to choose them to represent me after a car accident was a no brain’er. From my first meeting with them, they listened, showed empathy and provided me with certainty in every step of my case. They went above and beyond and I appreciate all their support and understanding. It was important for me to have a team that went that extra mile, was patient and made me feel valued and worthy. I wasn’t just a number and $$$, I was part of a family that cared. They fought to get the best outcome for me and I could not be happier. To anyone in need of legal assistance and representation I couldn’t recommend Megan and Yen enough. I will always be grateful.
In 2018 I was crossing the road as a pedestrian and all of a sudden I found myself facing off with the bullbar of a 4×4 (travelling at 80km/h, according to police). The driver had decided to run the red light at speed and as I readied my stance in order to jump out of the way, it was already too late and I was struck with enough force to send me flying 15 metres across the intersection. It has and will continue to be a long road toward recovery.
There have been countless challenges along the way, but dealing with my lawyer has not been one of them. Yen Tran and the Polaris Lawyers team have made my compensation claim the easiest part of my journey toward recovery. I made sure to scroll down past the big firms in my google search, knowing that (through a friend who works for one) they tend to be focused on their end, more than the client’s. I’m not a greedy person, but due to the extent of my injuries, I wanted to be sure that my future was as secure as it could possibly be. One look at the testimonials/reviews on the Polaris Lawyers website and I knew I had to make the call.
I scheduled a phone interview and wrote a brief message about my injuries and how I sustained them. As soon as I spoke to Yen Tran from Polaris Lawyers, I knew instantly that I’d found someone who genuinely cared about me – and I say that with purpose – Yen cared about ME.
We spoke about what happened to me and I felt so comfortable speaking with Yen that I even felt safe enough to be vulnerable and allow the emotions to flow, which is usually something I reserve only for those that are closest to me. Yen never once came across as a lawyer, even when getting into the nitty-gritty details about my case. We spoke candidly and honestly, but most of all we interacted in the friendliest manner possible within a professional setting. It truly felt as if Yen was that friend we all wish we had who’d studied law and just happened to have specialised in the field relevant to the case. I’m so glad I scrolled past the big firms in my google search.
Not only was Yen Tran and the Polaris Lawyers team incredibly efficient for the duration of my case, they were also transparent. They kept me updated and in the loop every step of the way. Most importantly, for the duration of my case I was able to focus solely on my recovery. There was never a time that my case caused me any added stress or anxiety. Yen and her team took all of that on for me.
I couldn’t recommend Yen Tran and the Polaris Lawyers team highly enough. They care about their client’s outcome more than their fees, and not only is that evident by the way they conduct themselves, it is proven in their fee structure. With all my heart, to Yen Tran and the Polaris Lawyers team including Jessica Colquhoun and a special mention to barrister Lachlan Allan (who appeared for us at the TAC conference), I will be eternally grateful.
Polaris Lawyers were absolutely fantastic to work with in relation to a medical negligence claim that was recently finalised in our favour. The whole team at Polaris were very professional, empathetic, and patient. The was never any unrealistic expectations, never any pressure, just a steely determination to do the best job possible for us. I am forever grateful to Nick Mann and his team for making our experience with the law as stress free as it was, thanks again. Cheers, Martin
In 2017 I was involved in an accident at work. I spent over 3 months in hospital and another year in rehabilitation center for my workplace injuries.. Before calling Polaris Lawyers, I was distressed because the workcover insureer were being difficult towards me. I decided to call Polaris and spoke to Megan Caines (and later Yen Tran). Megan listened to my story and decided to help me with my claim. From that moment I felt relieved from trauma, pressure and distress.
For my convenience, Yen came to visit me at home to ensure the required documents were completed correctly for lodgment. and . Everyone in the team including Jessica Colquhoun and Becky Bass were very kind and professional towards me. I was also happy with the barrister Geoffrey J. Smith whohelped me get a satisfactory and speedy compensation that exceeded our expectations. If it was not for the professionalism and attention to detail of this team, my situation would have been much worse for me and my family. I recommend this office of professional Lawyers, experts with confidence and integrity to any poor soul who needs help.
Polaris team have been my lawyers for a while now since a car accident and every single team member, from top down have been exceptional. They have been helpful, caring and considerate, professional and achieving positive results every step of the way. I don’t feel I have a lawyer that just wants to make money from my case, I feel I have a team of caring people looking out for my best interests. They have been a vital part of my recovery journey.
After going through a traumatic experience, finding a lawyer was something I was quite nervous about. I feel very blessed to have been pointed in the direction of Nick Mann, my personal injury attorney, and his great team. The support I received was amazing and i was never made to feel like my questions, which were many, were wasting their time, and they never rushed me when i needed clarification on something. Nick is very down to earth and this shows in the relationships he has with his team. There is mutual respect, and this certainly made me confident I had found the right person to have in my corner. Extremely happy with my experience.
Nick and his team came highly recommended to assist us in a medical negligence case. From the first contact Nick’s caring, compassionate nature was apparent. The successful outcome of this case was attributed to the knowledge, professionalism and hard work by Nick. Thank you, what you have done for us we will be forever grateful

At every stage of the legal process, Nick Mann and his team were of the utmost professionalism. This included keeping me constantly informed, regular checks to see how my family and I were coping, they kept a down to earth approach and ensured everything was easy to understand. I have no hesitation in recommending this company to anyone.
Polaris Lawyers have been the best resource, I could not be happier with the way they have treated my case and discourse. Highly recommend them.
Three years ago I had a day procedure go majorly wrong turning my world upside down. A friend recommended Nick and we instantly knew it was a good fit. Nick has exceptional communication skills. This, paired with his empathy and compassion towards me never went un noticed and was always greatly appreciated. In my opinion, this puts him far beyond the norm of what most professionals are even capable of. He genuinely cared about the case and wanted the best outcome for me. He is incredibly intelligent, down to earth and was always professional. Nick didn’t win the Australian ‘Law firm of the year’ in 2019 for no reason. Becky is also outstanding at her job, making these two a force to be reckoned with. Nick and Becky made the process of litigation so much easier than it had to be. Thank you for believing in my case and working so hard for the incredible result we received. I cannot recommend Polaris lawyers enough.
A fantastic niche company led by Nick and Becky, who are caring, committed and focused on achieving great outcomes for thir clients. They handled our daughters personal injury claim over the past 3 years to a successful outcome. I would think it would be very hard to top them as “THE FIRM” for handling your personal Injury claim.

Nick is the Mann ! Very professional and responsive. He promptly returned my calls and provided transparent advice. I highly recommend this firm for any personal injury matters.

I first learned about Polaris and Nick Mann in 2018 after one year of an injury I obtained during work. Nick was recommended by my nephew who is a lawyer himself. He contacted Nick and ask me to wait for his call. Nick immediately contacted me and made a time to meet me. He took my case with his team Megan Caines and later Yen Tran. My case was complicated because I was a contractor and didn’t have insurance, but with their professionalism and dedication my case was a success.I recommend Polaris Lawyers and I can’t thank them enough for the job well done.
Three years ago, my eyes were injured in eyelid surgery.
For two years after the surgery I continually used prescribed treatments to try and heal my eyes or find relief, but nothing helped.
I then decided to speak to a lawyer about the possibility of lodging a medical negligence case and was referred to Nick Mann, the principal of Polaris Lawyers. Nick immediately responded to my enquiry and after carefully examining my claim and explaining all the legal steps, he took on my case.
Unfortunately however, through the process of the required medical examinations, my eye injuries have not been assessed as a legal impairment and I could not continue to pursue my claim.
Although I am extremely disappointed with the outcome, I am happy with Nick and his team. They offered excellent advice and were always compassionate and respectful. I think that anyone who is considering engaging a lawyer for a personal injury claim should not hesitate to contact Nick Mann to discuss their case.
I would also like to mention Becky and Ariella and thank them for their kindness whenever we spoke and for their prompt replies whenever I emailed.
Polaris Lawyers were my lawyers for a TAC compensation case. I picked them out of the several lawyers I met in Melbourne because they seemed to be the most genuinely caring when I told them my story. I cannot say enough how glad I am that they were my lawyers. During the 15 months that my case lasted, I felt that they were always very professional but also listening to me when I needed to talk. They explained very well each step of my case, they briefed me before each step when needed. If you are looking for lawyers in Melbourne, Polaris Lawyers is the way to go! Thank you so much again to Megan, Yen and Jessica for your incredible work. And I have to say, the end result was more than satisfactory!
I had the pleasure of communicating with Nick Mann. The care and advice he gives, is without the best I have experienced. With his years of experience with the law and clients. He can calm and reason your emotions with the realistic logical outcome. Its hard to acknowledge when you do the right thing and others dont. You try to obtain justice, but justice in Australia can be a cruel and unkind to the good people of this environment. Talking with Nick (without cost :), thanks ) he puts things into perspective to help ease your mind in what is the best choice for your case. I didn’t end up pursuing the case. I thought a review would be the least I could do. Nick if you read this, Thank you for your time 🙂
If it’s specialised expertise that you require, then Nick Mann and his amazing team at Polaris Lawyers are definitely for you! With a compassionate approach, Nick and his team have provided me with ongoing support in regards to medical negligence. I cannot recommend Nick and his team highly enough for their dedication to my case and for providing me with a service second to none!
Rebecca Maplesden Had been through my life changing ordeal from the start I highly recommend her. Bec has Been genuine, honest and I feel has gone above and beyond for me. Her intelligence and knowledge about the law was outstanding which can be really daunting at the time but she was able to explain and keep me informed to a level of understanding. Her integrity towards the law and the compensation entitlements I was subject to was evident to the payout she won for me can’t praise her enough. Thanks so much will 100% use again and will recommend
I first came across Polaris Lawyers when I was introduced to their Principal, Nick Mann by a medico friend who praised their work. I was fortunate to spend 3 months working there as part of my legal training. Based on this experience and my birds eye view of how the firm operates on the inside, it became my firm of choice for family or friends who are dealing with any kind of personal injury claim. With this in mind, I recommended Polaris to my brother-in law who was supporting his mother-in law (also a dear friend of mine) in her recovery from a significant road trauma. Nick and the Polaris team’s handling of her TAC claim was exemplary. They provided clear and simple legal advice with absolute attention to detail through a compassionate and personable service tailored to the client’s individual and difficult circumstances. In addition, what impressed me was how pro-active and responsive they were in managing the claim to ensure that she got the benefit of her settlement as soon as possible with the least amount of stress. This meant that she was able to get on with her life without the proceedings and any uncertainty about the settlement hanging over her any longer than necessary. This is important because my friend had already suffered enough and did not need a protracted and stressful legal process to get what she was entitled to. I will always recommend Polaris knowing that they are experts in their field, they genuinely care for their clients and will go above and beyond to get the best possible outcome.
Nick Mann of Polaris Lawyers was recommended to my mother in-law in relation to a car accident she had in 2018. We found Nick and his team to be completely professional and compassionate throughout the course of the claim. Once everything was in place, a speedy outcome was achieved that exceeded our expectations. Polaris Lawyers were fantastic to deal with and we would highly recommend them to anyone in a similar situation.
Last year I suffered a medical malpractice. I asked my close friends about a lawyer specialized in these matters and one of them told me about Nick Mann and his team. I emailed them and two days later I had a phone call with Nick Mann placed in my calendar to chat through the incident. We talked for about 45 minutes, a totally open and honest conversation, where Nick professionally answered all my questions. I followed up this conversation with more questions via email that he promptly clarified. Finally, I had a meeting face to face with him that helped me to clarify all my doubts and have a clearer vision of the course of action. I can only be grateful to Nick for his openness, honesty, readiness and good advice and won’t doubt to call him if I ever need a lawyer. Thanks Nick!
Nick and the Team at Polaris lawyers Recently help me with a TAC Claim after losing a family member on Victorian Roads. I can’t thank them enough with there support and professionalism in such a horrific time in my family, Nick and the Team always had me and my family’s best interest at heart, There knowledge of the TAC Law and claim process helped my family receive the best possible result, while allowing me to just focus on supporting my family in such a difficult time. I sincerely recommend Nick and the team at Polaris Lawyers… Thank You
Very helpful and caring
I engaged Polaris Lawyers a year ago as I was seeking a small firm with that personal approach yet with the knowledge, experience and professionalism to see my case through. My case is just as unique and complicated as my injury itself and therefore involves a number of different steps. With the help, assistance and guidance of Megan and Jess we were recently able to achieve a positive outcome on the first of these facets. And the Polaris team are already well progressed into our next steps.
I cannot speak highly enough of Nick and the entire team at Polaris as to date they have been true to their word and of their actions and from such have far exceeded my expectations. Thank you to the entire team and I look forward to working with you over this next year or two.
Absolutely happy with the overall result. Megan was caring and very patient to explain both the process and the fee. Although I saw a couple more solicitors beforehand, Megan’s offer was the most realistic as well as in accordance with my situation and needs. With their experience and support, it was relatively stress-free for me after signing the contract. Definitely a positive experience and highly recommended.
A pleasure to deal with. Regular updates. No stress. Highly recommended!!
Nick at Polaris Lawyers achieved an amazing result at the AAT for my son, Joshua who has a severe disability. The NDIA had treated us so poorly and unprofessionally, slashing Josh’s supports to make caring for him at home unsustainable!
Through Nick’s gentle guiding and expertise, we were able to take the case to appeal at the AAT . Nick’s knowledge, professionalism, ability to empathise and clearly portray Josh’s needs to the NDIA senior management, ensured my journey through the AAT was easy and almost pleasant! I felt no stress, anxiety or pressure at any stage. Nick kept me up to date with all developments, gave brilliant advice when needed, enabling me to make considered, rational decisions for Josh’s welfare.
The result was excellent, exceeding my expectations, ensuring Josh’s care and quality of life will equal his mother’s dreams for her disabled son! Thank you so much Nick!!
Absolutely first class service, understanding of the issues, focus on the outcome and always advising both Pros and Cons advice. We have had a long journey with the Polaris Team and fighting odd & destructive NDIS decisions made regarding our son and i cannot recommend them high enough!
Get these guys on your team and i am certain they will provide you with the best support/advice to tackle anything short or long term in their specialty field. More power the Nick and his team and the quality outcomes they achieve for people and families facing NDIS disruption and its vacuous decisions! David Grey July 2019
I was fortunate enough to be referred to Polaris Lawyers after working with a larger legal firm for a short time. Nick and his team are extremely professional and knowledgeable and combine this with a caring and personal approach.
Nick always took the time to explain the process and provided regular updates to me. Nick is very dedicated to positive (but realistic) outcomes. I cannot thank Nick and Becky enough for the service they provided. I highly recommend Polaris Lawyers.
I Therese M, recommend Rebecca for the help she was, not only [as] my solicitor [but] also a friend. I was very comfortable talking to her and [she] helped me with my sorrow. Thank you Rebecca.
The personal touch provided by Nick Mann and the team at Polaris Lawyers is unlikely to be experienced when dealing with a larger firm. They were always patiently and thoroughly there to answer my questions, explain the processes ahead with transparency, and support me through a sometimes challenging journey. The compensation I received is well above what was expected by myself and the team, and I put this down to the attention to detail and the time spent to really understand my injury and my history. I am so thankful that I chose this firm, and Nick Mann in particular, to assist me with my personal injury claim.
Thank you to Nick Mann for his kindness and informative advice. To be shown compassion at a time when you are particularly struggling with not knowing which way to turn was so welcomed. I would have no hesitation in recommending Polaris Lawyers to anyone finding themselves in need of help for a disability or injury incurred.
I am pleased to say that I engaged Polaris Lawyers to pursue a case for me recently and I was very impressed at their professionalism and attention to detail.
They took the time to understand my situation and guided me through the process with a positive attitude. I would highly recommend them if you are looking for legal advice.
We were very happy with the result we received through the support and dedication of Nick Mann and his team at Polaris Lawyers. Nick kept us well-informed throughout the whole process and was very accessible and personable in explaining what was happening through each stage of the process and alleviating any concerns we had about our case. Professional and client oriented, we feel as though we received a first-class service and wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Polaris Lawyers to others.
I was extremely fortunate to be referred to Nick Mann from Polaris lawyers, after a poor experience with a previous law firm. My family and I are so grateful for all the time and effort that they put into my case and the fantastic outcome that they obtained for me. Nick is knowledgeable and professional, and explained every process of my case so easily and succinctly. Both Nick and Becky were very patient and kind, and with everything that I had gone through, were genuinely compassionate and supportive. They always updated me regularly and addressed any concerns that I had, and were very generous with their time. I will always be thankful to Nick Mann and Polaris Lawyers for their dedication and expertise. My experiences were positive from my first phone call and meeting with Nick, and continued throughout my case. I highly recommend Polaris Lawyers to anybody requiring assistance in personal injury law. Thank you Nick and Becky!
This review is a small token of appreciation for the splendid work Polaris Lawyers did for our family in time of need. Nick Mann and Megan Caines were determined to be of utmost help to us – in human, professional and ethical terms. And they were. The seeming ease with which the whole legal process was handled belied the difficulties Nick and Megan had to overcome to get an incredible, unexpectedly satisfying, positive result. It is another testament to a professionalism and the perseverance of Polaris lawyers that the outcome of their work was far above and beyond our expectations, while successfully shielding us from an additional stress. Nick Mann’s and Megan Caines’s compassion, professionalism and a determination to do the right thing by their clients is very much appreciated. Thank you, Polaris Lawyers! Michael and Valentina Galak.
Was fortunate to be referred to Megan at Polaris recently. Megan is highly knowledgeable and was able to explain my rights and obligations simply and succinctly. She was kind and extremely generous with her time and expertise and I would not hesitate to recommend her and the team at Polaris.
It has been nothing but a positive experience working with Polaris Lawyers. Kind, understanding, compassionate, open minded, non-judgemental. Nick Mann and Becky Bass went out of their way to make the whole experience easier. I always felt that they had my best interest at heart. Their dedication to my case is something I will be thankful for the rest of my life. I’d recommend Polaris Lawyers to anybody.
I recently engaged Nick to represent me in a medical dispute and I really appreciate all he was able to do to assist me. He was so patient, talking me through the legal process; he always took time to address my concerns, consulted and updated me regularly. I appreciate that my priorities and personal sensitivities were taken into consideration. Nick’s excellent negotiation skills and persistence achieved a successful outcome and I thoroughly recommend him and his team at Polaris Lawyers.
I have turned to Nick a few times for advice and he is always helpful and genuine. I highly recommend Polaris.
A fantastic group of committed, hard working people. Nick and his team really know their way around personal injury law, they were easy going and lovely to work with.
These are my lawyers and the only people I could ever trust with my case, my story and my well being. Nick Mann was the lawyer I wanted handling my complicated case. I retained Nick 8 years ago and he was working in a large firm at the time. I specifically wanted Nick to be my lawyer because I knew his secretary, Becky, personally. I knew that she was amazing at her job and would look after my file and I also believed everything she said about Nick, of whom she spoke very highly. Nick was amazing and made me feel like I was in really good hands. Nick later went on extended leave overseas and my case was handed from lawyer to lawyer in the big firm and I felt like no one cared. For years I tried to get results and felt like my file was just sitting there collecting dust. At one point, the TAC made an offer and put some pressure on. I felt that the large firm was trying to force me to settle against my wishes and better judgement. On that day, I found out that Nick and Becky had created Polaris Lawyers and I left the large law firm that had my file for 7 years! It was one of the hardest decisions I have ever made but it was definitely the best decision and the right decision for me. I felt immediate relief and immediately secure. Nick looked after my case (again!) and looked after ME and my best interests and I know he genuinely cared about achieving the best result for me whilst keeping my health and capacity in mind. Nick travelled an hour to see my in my home to take my instructions and genuinely cared about me through the whole process. I was always able to speak directly to my lawyer, Nick, and not a secretary or PA. Nick made sure that all of my concerns were dealt with. No stone was left unturned. He made my mind feel at ease. The bigger firm left me with constant doubt, questions and concerns that were never resolved or attempted to be resolved in my opinion. In only 9 months, Nick helped me to achieve a much better outcome than that offered to me only 9 months earlier with my previous lawyers and he helped me to answer all the queries and concerns I had before settling so that I was comfortable in doing so and didn’t feel pressured. Now I’m at peace with it all. Nick is not only and amazing lawyer, but he is a genuine and kind person who really, genuinely cares about his clients. I can’t recommend Polaris highly enough and I wish them every success.
