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.

I have dealt with a few lawyers in the past, but they always managed to have me walk out of their office feeling more negative than positive, wondering if you made the right decision in choosing the one you did, but with Go To Court Lawyers, I walked away feeling a winner right from the start. They were extremely caring toward my problem, and they dealt with it as quickly and as professionally as possible, with fantastic results. I would highly recommend them to anyone.

This service was wonderful. My lawyer answered all my questions thoroughly and was very knowledgeable. Everything about a divorce is stressful so it was so good to get armed with information. I can now sleep at night (ha ha). Thanks so much !! Recommend this hour long consultation for anyone going through a divorce so you know where you stand.
