Maurice Blackburn and the AMWU

Maurice Blackburn lawyers will go the extra mile to get you the compensation you deserve.

If you are injured at work or have suffered loss, I recommend Maurice Blackburn Lawyers. They are the experts in personal injury law and will get you the best possible outcome.

Maurice Blackburn champions the same values and causes as the AMWU. Their lawyers have successfully fought to improve workers’ rights and to achieve fairness in the workplace.

Maurice Blackburn is the preferred legal advisor for our union. While the firm has a strong reputation in work and road injury compensation, they can also help you with a range of other services including financial advice or will disputes, medical negligence, asbestos related diseases and superannuation and insurance matters.

As a union member you can benefit from a range of free legal services, including a free initial consultation and a standard will.

The AMWU is proud to stand alongside Maurice Blackburn Lawyers, who has successfully represented thousands of our members.

If you need legal advice or assistance, please contact the AMWU on 1300 732 698, or contact Maurice Blackburn directly.
