Segelov Taylor client Tony Biddle speaks about making a claim.
Segelov Taylor Lawyers was established by Tanya Segelov and David Taylor in 2016. They left a larger firm to set up their own firm focused on providing high quality legal services in specialist areas.
The owners of the firm, David and Tanya, will handle your matter. They are both very experienced lawyers, with 20 years experience in complex litigation.
Unlike larger firms, our matters are not handled by call centres, paralegals and junior lawyers.
Your matter will be dealt with by them from start to finish meaning you can be assured that every stage of the process will be handled with care and expertise.
We are not generalist lawyers. We specialise in a small number of areas of work and are expert in those areas.
We provide very high quality legal services in the areas we work in.
We only accept instruction in matters in the right matters. As a specialist firm, saying no to matters where we do not believe we are the right lawyers for the client (and have the capacity to do the work) is as important as the matters we select to take on. We focus on the work in which we specialise.
David and Tanya have the ability to decide what cases to take and when so that your matter remains a priority.
We act on a no win, no fee basis in the following matters:
- all mesothelioma, asbestos, silica and dust disease claims;
- all personal injury claims;
- when we act for a person challenging a will;
- in institutional and sexual abuse matters.
If we act for you on a ‘No win, no fee’ basis we will only recover our costs in the event of a successful claim. Unlike most firms we will pay all disbursements incurred in the preparation and litigation of your matter.
In other types of matters we act on a variety of basis, including payment at the conclusion of the claim, or on a partial no win, no fee basis. Information about out fee policies for different types of work is set out below. For more information about our fees, see our Fee Policy Page
FREE Case Assessment
We offer a free initial case assessment.
We will obtain preliminary instructions from you and advise you whether we believe we are able to assist you in your matter. If we believe me may be able to assist you we will discuss with you the the process, the terms of which we can act (including the likely costs) and the value of the claim. The case assessment may be by phone, or in person. There is no cost associated with this case assessment, nor any obligation to instruct is in your matter.
National Free Call
You can chat to us online by using the webchat below (where it says Speak to us!). David and Tanya are often able to respond immediately. If they are not available, an operator will take your details and we will get back to you within a day.
We have offices in Sydney and Melbourne.
However, we routinely act for clients in regional New South Wales and Victoria, as well as other states in Australia. We are also able to assist clients based overseas with claims in Australia.
Please select the office relevant to you for location details, as well as phone and fax numbers.
At a devastating time in my life I met Tanya Segelov. My husband had just been diagnosed with peritoneal mesothelioma.
My husband and I both understood the need of a solicitor who understood the nature of the disease and legislation of the NSW government and the departments involved in this process.
Luckily I noticed an article in the daily telegraph reporting the story of a woman’s fight for justice and triumph for her husband who had suffered from a work related asbestos disease. Tanya Segelov was her solicitor.
I rang Segelov Taylor and advised how ill my husband was. Tanya visited him next day at home and clearly explained all rights we were entitled too. Plus the procedures involved with government and the Dust Disease Board. Unfortunately nearly all of Tanya’s business relations were involved in a hospital situation with my husband. Sympathy, compassion and professional integrity were displayed by Tanya and her staff at all times.
My husband passed away only six weeks after diagnosis. Through this terrible time Tanya never shirked her duty of care to me and obtained excellent outcomes for my family and I.
I can wholeheartedly recommend Tanya Segelov and her team to anyone with a dust related illness as I truly do not know how I would have coped without her knowledge, compassion and assistance.
I approached David to help me with an extremely stressful and difficult situation at work. David provided professional advice and guidance and I was glad he was there to reassure me in my time of need. It was great having him in my corner and a great outcome too, I would highly recommend Segelov Taylor Lawyers.
I wish to express my appreciation for the assistance and support that was provided by your firm in settling my recent claim.
I was very impressed at our first meeting with the time taken to explain the process. This allowed me to submit my version of events, freely and without any form of prompting.
I would like to mention a special thank you to Kristy-Lee for the ongoing support that she provided in keeping me updated on how the case was proceeding and for the provision of relevant correspondence.
I am very pleased with the outcome and have no hesitation in referring others to your firm, for support in your areas of expertise.
I also intend visiting the online site to express my gratitude.
Thank you once again and I hope your firm has ongoing success in the support provided to clients.
RE SEGELOV TAYLOR LAWYERS– DUST DISEASES CLAIM FOR MESOTHELIOMA
I just want to thank you very much for representing Serge in his Dust Diseases Claim. Although this journey isn‘t a very happy one, we very much appreciate your guidance during the course of the claim.
We were very impressed with the way you handled the case from the very beginning when everything was very raw and we were still in shock and disbelief that he had been diagnosed with Mesothelioma. As he was still recovering from an operation, your home visits made our appointments with you so much easier.
Serge is very happy with the outcome and settlement of the claim and also wanted to pass on his thanks.
We would definitely recommend Segelov Taylor Lawyers to anyone who needed your expertise in the areas that you practice.
Once again, many thanks
We contacted Segelov Taylor Lawyers after they were recommended to us as experts in the area of asbestos.
On our first meeting all of my family were very impressed with the professionalism and expertise Tanya showed us. It was obvious from her questions and wisdom in this a particular area that she knew what she was talking about and reassured us that we did in fact have a case.
Throughout the months of research there was constant information and updates and regular emails and phone calls from Segelov Taylor Lawyers which reassured us throughout the whole process that we had employed the right lawyers.
Because of Tanya’s determination, dedication and advise we received a settlement that helped my mother pay for the very best care she needed as her health declined from her asbestos related cancer. My family and I will be forever grateful to Tanya and her team as it meant we could focus on spending time with my mother and organising the best one on one care for her until she passed.
David performed great work helping me with my unfair dismissal claim.
I could never have obtained the result I did without his hard work on my behalf.
I had a difficult issue with work. David was able to provide advice that cut through the uncertainty and to provide strategic alternatives which in the end delivered a favourable outcome despite unlikely odds. I recommend him for employment law matters both simple and complex.
David Taylor got me through what could have been a rough time with regards to my family estate proceedings. I had no idea of where to start, and was guided by David. He was so approachable, always at the end of the phone to answer questions, and, was a strategic professional to have on my side. My outcome was favourable and I cannot thank him enough. During the process I needed support, and he comforted me with his knowledge. I hope to remain a friend of this brilliant lawyer. He fights for your rights.
I was very stressed by how I was being treated at work. It felt overwhelming. David was able to provide calm and straightforward advice. He started a number of claims for me, and as a result I got to leave my job with a payment, my dignity and reputation protected. I now have a new job and am much happier.
