Thank you for all your help! Really worth the payment and I definitely will recommend to others.
Words can’t describe how grateful I am to Trudie Cameron being my solicitor and to Andrew Tiedt presenting my case in the court. They both have been very supportive and amazingly professional and effective. I’ve got an absolutely fantastic outcome I couldn’t even dream about.
Trudie was very helpful and handled the matter well. She assisted us throughout the process and that was much appreciated especially with the court process. The final outcome was satisfactory and I was very happy with the result.
Trudie Cameron made us feel comfortable from the moment we met her. In our first meeting she explained the situation and asked detailed questions. All meetings and correspondence were dealt with in a timely and professional but caring manner. On the court day Trudie went through the procedure and prepared us for the court session. I would recommend her to anyone needing legal help.
Being charged with a crime while living in another state to where that crime was committed, required me to find an interstate criminal lawyer to represent me. I googled NSW criminal law firms…& Armstrong Legal was the first firm to appear. So I rang its number…& I am still deeply glad that I did. My lawyer – Trudie Cameron – was on top of all that was happening. She was prompt in responding to my calls and emails, and her defence strategy was greatly to my advantage. I also appreciated her attempt to understand the personal devastation that being charged caused me. I thought she was impressive in court – very well prepared & strong in her presentation. My favourable sentence resulted from her hard work…& the judge’s good sense! I thought the outcome more than justified the reasonable cost. I thank Trudie & I thoroughly recommend Armstrong Legal.
Trudie was as good as I could have asked for and a credit to your company I will recommend both Armstrong Legal and Trudie personally to anyone who requires legal advice.
Your professionalism and understanding of everything far exceeded my expectations. Armstrong Legal has a true asset in you. You’ve also destroyed any negative impression I’ve had in the past with solicitors, as you had my interests as your focus, rather than a pay day.
