One of the best Lawyers I've met. Engaging, professional and knowledgeable with a grasp of the technical and legal ethics involved in my case. Flexible payment options( very important for lesser mortals like us!)I will absolutely recommend this lawyer & organisation to my friends and family.

Being able to gain some initial advice on the phone and then being able to book someone for the same day for an hour was fantastic. We were not pressured to front up with a heap of money and were given the option on whether or not to engage them. We were able to make decisions and they were happy to inform us of the process and encouraged us to handle the areas that we could ourselves to help reduce cost.
