There is no way on earth, I would ever advise anyone to go into court without expert legal representation. Had we not had Angela’s help, I doubt we would have got the result we did – which was the best possible outcome. I would highly recommend Angela Cooney and Armstrong Legal.
I sincerely thank you, Angela, for your professionalism, experience, and guidance. You rescued our crisis, which was upon another crisis, which we are currently dealing with. I was recommended to Armstrong’s by a friend, another happy customer. I pray that I never have to use your services again for obvious reasons. I am extremely grateful.
Angela was terrific, and I thank her very much for everything!
Angela Cooney was great. She kept me well informed, gave solid advice and acted in a highly professional and competent manner. I would have no hesitation in recommending her.
From the moment I met Angela and in all of my dealings, including my end result, I will be referring her and your firm where I can. I am so grateful for the way in which she has dealt with me from start to finish, obviously, a difficult time made easy my Angela. Her delivery in court was a true inspiration, to watch her speak, I am forever grateful.
Throughout Angela has been the consummate professional. She maintained a calm, yet strong demeanour remained informative and completely open in her communication and took complete ownership of the situation. We felt confident we finally had an advocate to steer us out of the nightmare we were in, and she did so with great respect and sincerity. I cannot speak more highly of Angela. She has literally rescued our family from what looked very much like a hopeless future.
My thanks to Angela cannot be understated, I wish I could do more. Where others were unwilling or unable to examine the fine detail his defence needed, Angela was meticulous in attending to the tiniest details and slowly began unravelling the truth.
