Maree Harris

"I would like to thank my solicitor Maree Harris for all her work in handling my case through to completion. I found Maree had a genuine sense of care for my matter, which I really appreciated, as being left out of my father's will was painful emotionally for me. Maree was very efficient and prompt in all paperwork matters including emails, returning my phone calls and in preparing my affidavit and supporting documentation.

Contesting an estate is a significant paperwork exercise and Maree always responded quickly and efficiently. It was also of great benefit to me that Maree specialises in contesting wills. She new the process very well and the necessary steps involved in contesting an estate. This simplified the process for me.

Whilst Maree's demeanour was warm and friendly, I also clearly witnessed her strength, decisiveness and frankness when dealing with the defendant solicitor. She argued my case and advocated my claim clearly and with determination. Maree's expertise enabled the process to be as streamlined as possible and most importantly we did receive a good financial legacy for me. On conclusion Maree handled my case with professionalism and care. A good financial outcome was achieved for me which will be of great help to me and my family. I thank Maree and Armstrong Legal for handling my matter."


Maree Harris

"Thank you for transfering my legacy money, and most importantly for being instrumental in assisting me in receiving it.We did a lot of work together to obtain it. My legacy will make a significant difference for me and my family and definately help mend at some level my unfortunate relationship with my father during the last few years of his life.For that I am very grateful."


Maree Harris

"I just wanted to thank you for all the work you have done. I appreciate how you handled the matter and your patience and dilligence in dealing with my matter."


Maree Harris

"No matter the outcome, I could not be happier with my treatment by you and by extension Armstrong Legal. You have been compassionate and attentive-never once have I felt reduced to a case number or that my case wasn't important to you. After the case has been settled I would like to work with your internet marketing team to produce an International testimonial. There are many Australians living abroad that would probably feel that they have no redress because they are not IN Australia. I would be more than happy to provide Armstrong Legal with a testimonial aimed to impress upon Global Australians that distance is no impediment to their rights."


Serenay Kalkan

"Serenay possesses amazing skills and knowledge in dealing with legal matters which she had emonstrated in a wide range of professional legal practices from managing and assisting lawyers with important documents for trial matters and litigation documents.

I speak from experience that I have been a client of a well-known legal firm which are expert in dealing with expertise on Wills and Probate matters.

Serenay is a caring person who makes every endeavour to ensure that her clients are treated with the utmost care and given the best professional advice and support."


Paul TraianedesSerenay Kalkan

"The solicitor and paralegal that handled my case were excellent in answering my concerns and providing the necessary guidance. They explained the legal process in a manner that I could clearly understand and were promptly available to answer my questions. They made me confident that I had selected the right solicitors to handle my legal application and I had no concerns that they would carry out their work to achieve the most favourable outcome for me.

Should I require legal counsel in the future I would not hesitate to appoint Armstrong Legal."


Maree Harris

"I want to take the opportunity to thank you again for all your assistance and patience you provided during this estate settlement. Your manner and professionalism has been well received and would highly recommend Armstrong Legal to any friends or family."


Serenay Kalkan

"I am writing to you to give you feedback on one of your incredible staff members, Serenay Kalkan.

My father passed away intestate in April 2014 and my brother and I were recommended to Armstrong Legal, as you were the best Wills and Estate lawyers in Australia.

Serenay has been the best support to my brother and myself. She has and continues to bend over backwards for me. Serenay constantly keeps me ‘focused on the prize’, even when I can go off on my 'spoilt youngest child moments'. Serenay is always extremely polite and responds to my million and one questions extremely prompt. She has also had to deal with the opposition’s lawyer, who is known to be extremely difficult to deal with.

Please take this letter as appreciation that Serenay has made to date."


Serenay Kalkan

"Extremely pleased at the overall process and support provided."


Paul TraianedesSerenay Kalkan

"From the initial consultations with Serenay, to the meeting with Paul, I was constantly assured that my matter would be resolved quickly and effortlessly, and that I need not be stressing unnecessarily.

Their explanation, in plain English, of the law, the process, and tactics to be employed, allayed my fears and concerns.

As well as being approachable, both Serenay and Paul took the time to hear my concerns, which probably had no relevance in the eyes of the law, but to me, left me feeling secure and confident.

For their professionalism, I thank them dearly."


Maree Harris

"I was happy with the final result in spite of the tortuous relations with my brother. It was a relief to be able to rely on advice on how to respond appropriately to the negative responses from my brother."


Maree Harris

"Many thanks again for all your help over this awful business. Although I have had a difficult time working through the conflict with my brother, at least it has been a pleasure dealing with you."


Maree Harris

"Maree,
Thank you for your hard work and support. I appreciate everything you've done. You are amazing."


Maree HarrisEric Butler

"I refer to my matter which we have concluded in the last couple of days, following collaboration for almost two years. Throughout that time I have worked mostly with yourself and, to a lesser extent, with Eric Butler. I have found both of you to be highly professional in your approach to your work and exemplary in meeting deadlines, as well as always being approachable and helpful in relation to any problems that may have arisen - and there certainly were more than just a few.

In summary, I can confidently recommend the services of Armstrong Legal in any matter which involves testamentary disputes, challenges to wills and applications for family provision. Thank you for your co-operation and assistance throughout the conduct of a difficult matter."


Maree Harris

"I would like to add that I am very happy with the way Armstrong Legal handled the settlement of my late mother’s estate. In particular I found Maree Athanasoupolos to be very efficient courteous and helpful at all times and I would not hesitate to recommend her services to others."


Janet Botros

"Dear Janet,

I would like to take this opportunity to extend my gratitude for your professionalism and assistance with my recent legal matter.

Thankyou for giving me hope, guidance and empathy throughout my emotional ordeal. You always took time to give me advice at any time , day or night, and you were always available to explain any legal jargon. I felt you were my guiding angel when I needed professional help. It was wonderful that you also referred the matter to a barrister when it was required and it along with your guidance gave me confidence to proceed.

It was pleasing to have negotiated a favourable outcome and I would recommend you and your firm to anybody.

As you are aware I did find this to be an extremely difficult period and your exceptional professionalism was greatly appreciated. I wish you all the very best in both your professional and personal future endeavours."


Janet Botros

"I am writing to express my gratitude and thanks to Janet Botros for her handling of the matter regarding the estate of my late mother Maureen.

This matter was definitely not your “run of the mill’ or ‘out of the box’ scenario and involved a complex web of both legal and moral issues. Right from the start and through until completion, Janet tackled and handled these issues with the utmost of professionalism.

I definitely wear my heart on my sleeve and over the past 12 months I found Janet to be an extremely passionate, caring and empathetic person, who was able to manage my expectations and fears with the utmost of sensitivity.

The whole experience and outcome of this matter has been life changing for me and for that I have Janet to thank."

Eric Butler

"Thank you for all the efforts of Eric and the team in bringing this matter to a successful conclusion. Despite the significant size of the estate, had I trusted in the executors in the estate to look after me and my sons, we would have received absolutely nothing at all. Through the efforts of our legal teams, we managed to achieve an outcome similar to that which I believed was envisioned by my father, but which was likely to be thwarted by the dishonesty and betrayal of others."


Janet Botros

"I had a particularly complex and difficult Will and a good friend of mine recommended Janet Botros as being an exceptionally good lawyer. I was NOT disappointed. From the moment I spoke to Janet I just knew she was the precise person to take on this complex case. Upon initial contact with Janet, I asked her a huge myriad of questions which she answered sincerely, truthfully and also gave of her time willingly and never once did she rush me off the phone.

On occasion I got most despondent regarding the case and when calling Janet she sensed how I felt and was CONTINUOUSLY assisting my outlook on the positive. I could not have got through this case without Janet’s honourable and genuine help. She made me laugh when I wanted to cry.

Janet is unconditionally efficient; I was constantly updated by her and notified at every stage the case was at, I was never ever left hanging wondering what was going on.

I can honestly say Janet went above and beyond the call of duty and I sincerely mean this. She is a most wonderful, caring decent person and I absolutely recommend Janet Botros without a doubt."

Eric Butler

"Thank you for all the efforts of Eric and the team in bringing this matter to a successful conclusion. Despite the significant size of the estate, had I trusted in the executors in the estate to look after me and my sons, we would have received absolutely nothing at all. Through the efforts of our legal teams, we managed to achieve an outcome similar to that which I believed was envisioned by my father, but which was likely to be thwarted by the dishonesty and betrayal of others."


Eric Butler

"I would also like to take this opportunity to thank Eric for all your help in this matter. You guys turned what was already a hard and emotional time into something that wasn't quite as painful as it could have been."


Janet Botros

"During our dealing with a will dispute, we found ourselves on an emotional roller coaster and unsure of what was ahead of us; the legal team which we dealt with were fantastic, they guided us through the entire process, emotionally supported us and helped us reach the best possible outcome in such a hard situation.

Janet was amazing; she not only is brilliant at what she does in a legal sense but was remarkable at making it as least distressing as possible. Situations like these are traumatic and when going into a state of affairs of a will being disputed then you need not only feel supported but confident in their knowledge of the legal system, we found this with Armstrong Legal (Butlers) but especially with Janet. She was our guiding light in a very dark time. We not only got a positive outcome to the situation but also had complete support during the entire process from the initial phone call to the proceedings being finalised. I would highly recommend this law firm."

"I would like to thank you for the amazing job you did for us in pursuit of funds from my mother's estate. I believe we have the best outcome and we would not have achieved this without your knowledge and professionalism.

Your honest and open guidance, as this matter was progressing was absolutely refreshing. I also liked the fact that you kept us informed every step of the way.

So thank you so much, we are very happy with the result that you liaised to obtain for us and I would certainly recommend your company to anyone seeking assistance."
