Maree lost one eye in a childhood accident. Despite this 'handicap' Maree enjoyed a full life. When she was in her 40s her GP referred her to an eye specialist. The eye specialist talked Maree into undergoing a corneal graft in her blind eye because he was very confident that he could restore her lost eye-sight. The eye specialist failed to warn Maree about the risk that the operation could result in losing vision in her good eye (Sympathetic Ophthalmia). This is Maree’s story.

I have been dealing with Alex and Jane for my legal case regarding my carpal tunnel post fracture. I have never needed a solicitor before so this was a whole new ballgame.

I have been impressed with Alex’s professionalism, integrity and support during this long process. I was very glad we came to settlement three weeks ago through mediation. It has been a hard process, with all my personal challenges and moving back to Melbourne two years ago. I have really appreciated not only Alex’s skills but his kindness during my challenges over last three years. He could have kept our relationship strictly at a case level but was pleased at his and Jane’s support during my other personal challenges which had nothing to do with the legal case.

I am very glad with the settlement that Greg Hickey negotiated and will now be able to buy a property which I am very excited about. In the almost four years since my fall at Ryde Hospital I can put this money to good use. It makes me feel secure. I would not have ever been able to buy property if this did not happen. I knew Alex and Greg would do their best to get me the best possible settlement but was pleased as it was more than what I thought possible.

At times I wanted to throw in the towel due my life being analysed by so many medical professionals but Alex and Jane have been supportive through the long saga. I am so glad it’s over. I would highly recommend this firm if friends asked for a referral. Alex would also not be as efficient without Jane’s efficiency.


Tom and Karina

It has been nearly a year and half since we have spoken, but you are still a significant memory in my life.

We finally own our home in Young, have been here for a year.

Without your help and tireless work we would not be where we are today, which is a lot brighter future then what I could see 2 years ago.

My husband suffered a medical misadventure during surgery for cancer that resulted in him losing the use of his right leg. His femoral nerve was accidently severed during surgery. His life changed overnight. Our life changed overnight. We were referred by a friend to Julie Mahony, a medical negligence expert, at Stacks Goudkamp. Julie is exactly the person you want to sit in front of when you have a problem.

She was empathetic to a point and then it was all down to business. Our confidence in her was immediate. In our first meeting Julie explained her heavy workload and introduced us to Alexander Hairs explaining that he would work with us on a day-to-day basis while she would still personally oversee our case. My husband was fine with that. I wasn’t comfortable with that at first but as soon as we started working with Alexander it was clear he and Julie were cut from the same cloth.

Team Mahony-Hairs were a formidable team and my husband and I could not recommend them more highly. Even during the pandemic, while maintaining genuine concern for my husband’s health and welfare, it was business as usual. Appropriately attired in face masks and carrying the mandatory bottle of hand sanitiser nothing stopped them from pushing forward with what needed to be done. In our case it was a mediation. At the end of the day Julie and Alexander were the perfect team for us. They are a brilliant balance. What one didn’t think of the other did. Both were always available. And yes…they did win the fight for us. Now my husband can concentrate on winning the battle. We are very grateful to both of them.


I would just like to thank yourself Alex and Jane, as well as anyone who has been involved behind the scenes. From the get go you have all made me feel well informed & well supported. There was never a moment where I doubted that you all had my best interests at heart & that I could be confident

in being guided by your recommendations. I personally have struggled with the process of continuously recounting my experiences and focusing on the prospective issues I am likely to have from my injuries, but I am glad that we all stuck it out to the end & got a result I am very happy with and thankful for.


I could write a book as to how the last 4 years would have been so different if not for Tom and all the team at Stacks and Goudkamp. I was referred to Stacks by a friend while lying in hospital after an accident. Being a working husband, father of 4 and very active,the accident and what the future held was extremely frightening until I spoke with Tom and his team.

The support, assistance, advice from the first conversation till even after the settlement was second to none from the team at Stacks. I actually felt part of a family that was there to really help.

Four years on and after the many downs, my children and I have our lives back. We have been able to rebuild a life that now suits us post accident.

We are unable to THANK YOU all enough, but know that you have changed our lives for the better in so many ways since the accident.

Wishing you all the best in everything to you and your team.


My case looked destined for an average result many times, but this was where Cali dug in. She probably wouldn’t want me to say this (so as not to set a precedent), but the late-night calls and emails only demonstrated to me how hard working and dedicated to her work she is.

She surprised me many times by knowing things about my file that I wouldn’t have expected her to know. And most importantly, she was personally responsible for a late negotiation which saw my settlement amount increase significantly. There is no way of avoiding how scripted this might sound, but it’s an absolute fact. Cali, changed my life, by allowing me to find a way to get my life back.
