Robert McKessar

“I enjoy solving complex puzzles and that’s how I help my clients. I bring together all the pieces of the legal jigsaw – whether it’s dealing with medical, legal, personal or practical issues. I know the legal system and how to go about things, including dealing with insurers, employers, doctors, experts, government agencies and other stakeholders.

My clients know where they stand and the likely outcomes of their matter.

I like keeping control of each case to ensure that we get the best value for each client. That’s something which can only come with experience. I like to consider what will be most worthwhile in the long run: my goal is to resolve what we can and fight what we can’t.

Being an Accredited Specialist in Personal Injury Law means my clients can be confident they’re represented by someone whose expertise is recognised and whose knowledge of the law is tested and proven up-to-date.”

Client Review - 24 March 2020

"Thank you from both Tony and myself for all the dedicated time, patience and professional service that has always been given to both Tony and myself.

Please pass on our gratitude to Rob for all the tireless work he has done for Tony and our family over the past 5 years. He has always kept us updated, and well informed about all the processes and the various stages, even when we became very frustrated with the system.

Rob has a great ability to keep his clients calm and positive through the most trying of times.

Again, thank you Rob and Braye Cragg for all the wonderful guidance and assistance you have given us over the past 5 years."
