Your team’s communication with me was exceptional, I knew exactly what was happening.
The professionalism and reliability delivered by Amy Honan was fantastic. I had an urgent matter around my property sale and Amy offered to provide assistance over a weekend if I required it – that’s above and beyond!
So pleased to have had a good, sound and knowledgeable firm.
I really liked the personable service by Michael, the simple plain language he adopts and his patience.
Amy, thanks very much to you and your team.

I was completely satisfied with today’s outcome and without your experience and expertise in family law I doubt that the result would have been achieved.
