As you had to be in Cessnock soon after my case was dealt with, I didn’t have time to fully express my thanks to you for your wonderful work in representing me at Court. Your thorough professionalism and knowledge of effective preparation and procedure resulted in a great outcome for me - one that I dared not hope for at the beginning. I will thoroughly recommend you to others who need legal representation. Best wishes to you and your family in the future. Thank you once again.

Andrew is a great solicitor & top bloke. Very easy to approach and friendly. Really satisfied with the way he detailed information that was needed for the submission of my case on the scheduled date. Couldn't have asked for a better fella to represent me. ✌️👌👍💖

Excellent representation and the best outcome I could have asked for. Went to court for a driving while suspended charge and Andrew Carr was fantastic during the whole ordeal. Not only was the fine waived, but more importantly I was able to keep my license and stay on the road.

Had a really good experience with Danielle on the phone. She listened to my situation including being hesitant to make an appointment due to a bad experience with another law firm weeks before. She was really reassuring and said that she was certain they would be able to help. She took great notes which I saw at the appointment. When I showed up, the lawyer was aware of the situation and we spent the time addressing solutions and drafting documents.
