“I would like to give you some feedback on one of your lawyers Serenay Kalkan. I want you to know that a valuable asset she is to Armstrong Legal (hope you already knew that).

Thanks to Serenay she contested a will for me and got a great result. Serenay’s advice to me was very professional and at the same time she has a very caring nature.

I found her easy to talk to and above all she knows what she is talking about (she says it as it is). She was extremely supportive during this difficult time.

I would highly recommend Serenay and the team at Armstrong Legal to anyone who requires this sort of legal service. I wish Serenay all the best for the future at whatever level she practices at.


“Serenay and her team at Armstrong Legal conduct themselves with integrity, honesty and professionalism and demonstrate good understanding and strong experience in the environment in which they operate. Serenay was friendly and patient and communicated at my level at all times. She found the time to communicate to me, and provided a good explanation of events, the course of proceedings or her advice. She also had access to a wide range of professionals in complimentary fields that could assist me where required. I would highly recommend Serenay and her team at Armstrong Legal to anyone who requires this service.”


“During almost 1 year of contact with Serenay whilst she handled my affairs I found Serenay to be very professional and reassuring. Serenay was always prompt with any queries that I had, and I had many, nothing was an inconvience and Serenays’ attitude was always professional as well as friendly. Serenay had an amazing way of making me feel comfortable and that she was looking after me and my claim. Serenay was always reassuring and positive. I could go on and on about what an incredible person Serenay is, but hopefully you already know that. Once again I cannot express to much how I appreciate Serenay and her guidance.”


“I just wanted to say that my dealings with Armstrong Legal and in particular, Serenay Kalkan, who took on my case, was handled in a very professional way and was informed at each stage of the contested will of my Mother’s Estate.

Serenay kept me up to date with information on the case and also sending emails explaining the procedures in a succinct manner each time. I am very pleased and grateful with the outcome.

First contact with Serenay was very informative and she came across as very professional but, compassionate at the same time.

I would like to sincerely thank Serenay and parties involved and would highly recommend Armstrong Legal to any friends requiring legal help with contesting wills.”


Seranay was a great help with my case and was a great help I would highly recommend Armstrong Legal.


We would like to thank you for the personal attention from Serenay and the efforts of Armstrong Legal since the beginning of this matter in March 2016. It has been a great comfort during a time of emotion and stress to have been associated with a team of professionals.


“I engaged Armstrong Legal to assist me with the execution/probate of my mother’s deceased estate being the executor of a will that was likely to be challenged by disgruntled family members.

I wanted to be absolutely sure that her final wishes and the intention of the will were honoured in the way she would have wanted. As fate would have it after engaging Armstrong Legal documents were served by said disgruntled family members. It was a great decision as it turned out.

I was assigned Serenay who assisted and guided me through this distressing process. She was able to offer me choices and advice that assisted me in the following process whilst she navigated the legal process liaising with other family members legal representation.

Serenay tried to keep costs to a minimum as the estate was modest. She was extremely supportive during this difficult time and her frank advice was much appreciated.

I achieved the outcome I desired which was granting of probate due to the diligence and professionalism of Serenay and Armstrong Legal.

Once probate was granted I was able to commence my administrative duties as expected and with some solid parting advice from Armstrong Legal continue this heavy task without the stress of threatened legal actions.

Throughout this whole process, I found Serenay, and Armstrong Legal, to be professional in every aspect, the advice given has saved me a lot of money, time, and the potential for further conflict was removed.

I would highly recommend Armstrong Legal and in particular Serenay Kalkan, to anybody requiring assistance in dealing with probate or Will related matters. They ensured everything was done quickly and efficiently, all the while keeping you informed as the case progressed.”

I would like to offer my thoughts on Serenay Kalkan during our dealings with her.

When Serenay took over from our previous lawyer I have to say I was quite traumatized by what I had already been put through by him, I was grieving the loss of my father and the awful circumstances surrounding his death and the vile treatment I had received by my siblings, Add to that I had been diagnosed with 2 further serious medical conditions, so as you can imagine Serenay had her hands full.

I have to say Serenay handled my concerns and my case with the utmost professionalism, and compassion. Her manner when dealing with me, was always concise and calming, while still being very careful to convey very accurate information to my case.

Serenay helped with everything regarding our mediation, including recommending accommodation suited to my disability, and in fact, met us at the said accommodation and (very slowly) escorted us to the meditation centre and return.

Armstrong legal should be very proud of this extremely capable young lady, she is such an asset to your firm. I would have no hesitation in recommending Serenay and indeed Armstrong legal to anyone.


Dear Serenay, words can’t express how much your help, understanding and unwavering support have meant to me over the last 2 years. I could not have got through this without you. From the bottom of my heart thank you!

I am writing to you regarding Serenay and how she dealt with handling my case over the past two years or so.

I could not be more happy with all my communications and dealings with Serenay. She has always been extremely helpful each time I have spoken to her, and this even included calls after hours.

She has always handled herself in a most professional manner and I would have no trouble in referring her to anyone else that needed help in this way.

I wish Serenay all the very best in her future and Career at Armstrong Legal and further.

Serenay Kalkan has helped me through one of the toughest periods of my life. She was my constant guidance throughout a long difficult battle with my late mother’s estate. Serenay would advise of the legality of what was happening but also have the empathy that was required to get me through the week ahead. She would explain everything and keep me updated. I’d receive emails or calls late in the day and with the time difference in Perth, it would be very late for Serenay. Serenay has made it so much easier for me to process and finalise my mother’s estate, she is a huge asset for ‘Armstrong Legal’.


Serenay possesses amazing skills and knowledge in dealing with legal matters which she had demonstrated 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.


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 for my brother and me. 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 an appreciation that Serenay has made to date


From the initial consultations with Serenay, 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 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.
