BEST LAWYERS EVER. Shame they don’t have the same taste in coffee as me, but I’ll let that pass. Thanks for looking after me guys – smiling as I leave this review. I’d give 10 stars but Google won’t allow it *sigh*

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.

Information regarding my case was gathered in a very swift and affordable manner. Due to the eloquence that my Lawyer portrayed during the trial, I left the courtroom with no conviction. I Can't commend GTC Lawyers highly enough for their professionalism throughout the whole process. Thank you!

I've had a very unique case that required an expert advice in a very short notice as I was about to board a plane for an overseas offshore. I desperately discussed my case with Go to Court and surprisingly I've got a call from one of the greatest lawyer ever on Friday night saying he's happy to see me over weekend. Yeah, over the weekend!!! He sat with me on Saturday, reviewed my case and promised he will get back to me before my flights on Sunday. Long story short, not only I was pleased with their professional commitment, my case was resolved sooner than expected. Such a great team, such a great expertise. Highly recommended.
