Thank you for your time and in particular, your transparency with this case.
To be quite honest and from a client's perspective, I appreciate the volume of information that you request as i am a believer in being 'armed with knowledge', especially when it comes to legal matters. Such detail also demonstrates that Armstrong Legal are taking the time in this case to get the best possible outcome, so I really appreciate it.
Furthermore, Armstrong Legla have demonstrated a greater standard to the opposition when comparing affidavits. When search for a lawyer, it's a risk for the consumer but I have no regrets in choosing Armstrong Legal.
I am writing this letter as a recommendation for Maree Harris and Armstrong legal for their outstanding legal service, they were efficient, kind and compassionate through a very difficult time and I highly recommend them and would have no hesitation to engage their services again if the need arose.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Thank you for your hard work and support. I appreciate everything you've done. You are amazing.
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.
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.
