Our Testimonials

I would recommend Shane and his staff to anyone. He has my total support. He handled my problems with sympathy and understanding. The barristers retained to assist with my case did a brilliant job. Thank you Shane for a job well done


Shane’s competence gave us great support and relieved our anxieties. His assessment of the whole picture, pre and post settlement, enabled us to plan for the future with confidence. The Mediation was well handled and we were fully informed of all developments prior to and during the hearing.”

Thanks for everything once again, Ryan. You’ve done an awesome job helping Mikaela and I get our life back on track. We both couldn’t be any happier with the work you have done for us!


Just one last time I wish you the most successful and amazing years ahead.
