Why Anvil Legal?
The Principal Lawyer and Founder of Anvil Legal, Brett Owen, previously worked at several mines throughout the Midwest and Pilbara for nearly 20 years before he sustained a serious back injury whilst on the job. He realised that he had to make a workers’ comp claim and spent nearly three years dealing with insurers, rehabilitation providers and lawyers until his claim was eventually closed.
Mr Owen obtained a law degree and became a practising layer at the age of 42. He worked for a few law firms in Perth before opening Anvil Legal in 2012, where he has since helped many injured workers across Perth with their workers’ compensation claims. You can read more about his story here.
Anvil Legal understands that the costs of legal action can be a major deterrent for many injured workers to receive the compensation and support that they deserve, especially if they have just had their wages reduced because of an injury. That is why we offer a No Win No Fee Solution* to most clients with a workers’ compensation or common law claim.
