Testimonials

Here are some testimonials from some happy and satisfied clients:

Rachel took on my case when no other firm would help me.  I had searched for years, getting the run around and being told of enormous legal costs.  Then she started up here in Broken Hill and I was able to be represented at a Court case and get a response to a very personal matter.                                 Betty, retired

 

 

Rachel's staff are a pleasure to deal with. Nothing is too much trouble. It is always a joy to come into the office and see their smiling faces.        Paul, retired 

 

 

My kids were taken from me by my ex-partner.  I was out of my mind with worry.  I had no car, nothing.  Then I heard about Rachel and as soon as I saw her, things started happening.  She was calm and detailed in her work but you could see that she cared most of all.  That is what I like about her.  I haven't met a lawyer like her before and because our case is ongoing, I haven't found her approach to be different or changed at all.  She is the genuine deal.                           Michelle, sole parent

 

We had a very nasty estate matter where one of our wider family members had done the wrong thing with a parent's estate.  It was very distressing for us.  Rachel is helping us through the mess and in contrast to solicitors in Adelaide who seemed to only care about how much money we could pay them.   Rachel made me feel a lot better about things and about our case.  It's wasn't easy but at least we know Rachel is there for us

I am not the person who would think they would be writing to thank a lawyer.  However, when quick Court action was needed, Rachel set aside the time and within two days we got the result we wanted.  It didn't matter that I was on Legal Aid, she gave me good service and I am now a loyal supporter of hers and have used her services again.

Rachel and her staff are so friendly.  Its like meeting friends.  They put me at ease straight away and gave me the impression they were ''in my corner' right from the start.  Given how my ex was behaving, I really appreciated that.     

                              Rebecca, marketing

 

 

Good service, prompt, could get in easy contact.  Would use again.

Brilliant.   Rachel got me more than what I was expecting from crimes compensation.  They changed the laws in NSW but Rachel fought all the way.  The next thing I know, Rachel is filing statutory declarations, witnesss statements, clinical notes and I get another $5,000.00 from what I was looking at being awarded due to my injuries.  She really cared about me and my family too during this bad time.  Would highly recommend.

I got sacked from my job due to racial discrimination.  I got told that I had no case by other lawyers and to forget about it.  Rachel looked at it and could see clearly that I had a racial discrimination and an unfair dismissal case.   I knew that I did and it was good to hear a solicitor with a lot of knowledge in the area agreed with me!  We took my employer to Court and I got a good settlement after what had happened to me.  Nothing can compensate me for what happened but at least Rachel was able to get me some sense of justice.      Matthew, health sector

 

 

Rachel's staff always treat me like I am very special and are so friendly and helpful.  Who would have thought going into a lawyer's office you would get that sort of treatment!!               Veronica, student

 

 

I had a criminal matter before the Court.  I was so embarassed, I had never been in that position before.  Rachel helped me with getting references, doctor's reports and clinical notes to show the Judge my personal circumstances at the time of the offence.  This meant I received a minimal fine required under the law.   I was so relieved.      

                                Brent, community services

 

 

I never thought I would meet a lawyer like Rachel.  I don't have much time for them.  However, she explained everything every step of the way of my matter and made me feel a lot more reassured.  She didn't give up on me either. I would recommend her to anyone.  Also, she has extremely competitive prices after being to other lawyers.
