“Brendan, through Bourke Legal, wasn't just the rudder but the oar and the ballast for me. His very common sense, practical approach to all things injury management was exactly what I needed at a time when my life was turned upside down, inside out and all things chaotic. His understanding, direction, advice and general support of me in my situation, is only matched by his intimate expert knowledge of legislation surrounding work place injury compensation. I will always be grateful for all his and his PA Sarah's efforts. He also has a very dry sense of humour. Thank you very much”

“After sustaining an injury many years ago, I engaged the services of Jessica , Brendan and the team at Bourke Love. I would highly recommend the use of these great people as they took the time to understand my injury and were honest and professional in the mapping of my journey.
