Leon Monaco & Senior Associates

About us

In 1999, Monaco’s first Sydney branch was founded on three key tenets: expert lawyers, diligent work, and a commitment to getting the best outcome for every client.

Now, 24 years and thousands of successful claims later, you can find us across Australia, over the phone and via video conference. If you’re unable to travel, we can even come to you.

No matter your personal, physical or financial situation, we’ll help you get your rightful entitlements — and secure your financial future.

Leon Monaco and team member.

Why choose us?

When you’re with Monaco, we guide you through every step of your claim. This means we’ll always:

  • Match you with a lawyer who specialises in your type of claim.
  • Provide free comprehensive legal advice on your situation.
  • Support your case with strong evidence from our network of medical experts.
  • Use our strong financial muscle to go the distance against the vast resources of insurance companies.
  • Keep you up to date on the progress of your claim.
  • Handle all negotiations with the other party’s lawyers.
  • Maximise your final compensation.

We have the experience you can count on

Many of our lawyers previously worked for insurance companies, so we know the strategies they could use to obstruct your claim. This experience — coupled with our hard, diligent work — means we win the overwhelming majority of cases.

Our lawyers are trained to consider the circumstances of your claim from all angles. The result is comprehensive legal advice about where you stand, and how to get maximum compensation. This process often leads to us finding additional benefits and entitlements, such as:

  • Income support claims.
  • Total and Permanent Disablement (TPD) claims.
  • Other superannuation claims.
  • Negligence claims against your employer.
  • Negligence claims against third parties.
  • Nervous shock claims.

Our Team

Over the years, our dedicated team have earned accolades from both industry and clients, including “Compensation Law Firm of the Year in Australia 2020” (Global Law Experts) and “Compensation Law Firm of the Year 2020” (GBM Global Awards).
