Testimonials

What our clients say

I downloaded the booklet “How to Manage a Deceased Estate” which was very useful. I subsequently had contact with lawyer, Jennifer Nguyen and was advised what information to bring to the appointment for applying for Probate. As there were some issues I was unsure of, it was very helpful to be able to talk them through with Jennifer so the application process by the Supreme Court went through without a hitch. Follow up contact was appropriate. I would highly recommend this service to anyone needing to apply for Probate. Excellent service.
