No-Win-No-Fee*

For me, I walk away from this experience with a genuine sense of optimism and resilience. I now have hope and a purpose that I have not ever felt before in my lifetime. Whilst therapy and professional assistance is assisting greatly, it is because of your determination to see justice for me and that fact that I felt that I had your support “in my corner”, enabled me to have the courage to pursue this case to its end. 

Susan, 55

James, 60

I am writing to you both you and your amazing staff to thank you for your efforts in handling my matter.

I’d like to thank all of your team, without whom I’m sure we couldn’t have achieved the result we have. I am certainly a very happy customer and highly regard your firms professionalism, and results. 

Mark, 47

I would like to express my thanks to you and the rest of the Artemis team for not giving up on my case. No matter the outcome I cannot tell you how much it has meant to me for someone to not only believe me but to also fight for me. It has never occurred to me that my case was very important or significant.

We understand sexual abuse claims and so we know how to get you justice.  Justice looks difference to most people and we listen to what justice means to you.

We focus on your story and give you a voice on something that may have happened a long time ago. There is often power and healing in being heard and in getting justice for what happened to you as a child.

Thinking of applying for the National Redress Scheme?


The National Redress Scheme is a place of last resort for survivors of sexual abuse. 

This is particularly the case as some critical details within the scheme seriously disadvantage some survivors.

DO NOT MAKE A CLAIM WITHOUT FIRST SEEKING LEGAL ADVICE ON YOUR CIVIL RIGHTS. 


If you accept a National Redress Scheme payment, it WILL affect your civil rights (your rights under the general law). 

In some instances, existing civil rights mean some survivors can claim much higher amounts outside of the National Redress Scheme, without the need to go to court.  

Make sure you know your rights under BOTH the NRS and general law before you decide what is best for you. We advise all our clients on their rights under both options. 

Your claim is a valuable asset - an asset that you only have ONE chance to get right. Once the NRS makes an offer, it can't be appealed.

Don't sell yourself short. Ask us for a free, no obligation assessment of your situation.

Our Process

Every sexual abuse claim is different but over the years we have learned what you can expect from the process particularly since the Royal Commission and the recent changes in law.  

We put the Institution on notice

We write to the institution putting them on notice of the claim and identify the issues in dispute.

Settlement conference

We press for a settlement conference to allow you to be heard, for any apologies to be made by the insitution and to attempt to settle the matter.  95% of our claims settled at this stage.  If it does not settle you will be advised of your options including litigation.

Evaluation of claim

We prepare an advice and position papers based on the evidence and the law that applies to your claim.  This includes a detailed breakdown of the the value of the claim.

Medical records

We request and obtain all necessary medical records including an independent psychiatric assessment if necessary.

Closing of claim or Litigation

Any settlement is usually closed by a deed and compensation generally pay between 4 and 6 weeks after the deed is signed.  In sexual abuse claims we typically get you a written and verbal apology.
