Client Testimonials & Google Reviews

Becky Mungoven

If I could leave Haydon Potter a 10-star review I would!
After a very disappointing and frustrating experience with an alternate legal service, I was not confident that my workplace matter could be resolved efficiently or cost-effectively. I am so pleased that I persisted with the matter and that Haydon was assigned to my case. He got proceedings moving from day one and continued to keep the momentum going until the matter was resolved appropriately. Haydon is super knowledgeable and provided various options to proceedings, he was only ever a phone call or email away. Not only is Haydon exceptional at his job, he is a genuinely kind person. Thank you so very much Haydon!

Monica Triffitt

I would like to express my sincere gratitude to Sam for his outstanding support and advice throughout my legal journey. Sam proved to be an invaluable asset, playing a crucial role in navigating me through a complex legal situation.

I highly recommend Sam and his services to anyone seeking a reliable and knowledgeable solicitor. His commitment to his clients is truly commendable, making the legal process more manageable and less daunting.

Craig Whitton

A client had a delicate legal matter to resolve and they were unsure who to talk to. As a result of my previous experiences with Sam at Roberts Crosbie Mortensen, I was comfortable recommending Roberts Crosbie Mortensen to my client.

We met with Sam and Angus and were immediately impressed by their professionalism and their ability to get a clear understanding of the issue and developed a strategy to resolve this issue … as amicably as possible.

The majority of my discussions were with Angus, who is diligent, provided sound advice and explains legal matters in a simple to understand way.

I highly recommend Roberts Crosbie Mortensen Lawyers.

Lauren Aspinall

As somebody who had never engaged with a Solicitor before, I was lucky enough to have Hamish Taylor and Amanda Crosbie assist with the execution of two commercial leases. The process was seamless, with regular and prompt communication, all whilst being friendly and approachable at the same time. I hold complete confidence with this firm, and would not hesitate to contact them for any future legal needs.

Michael Trent

I had to get some Terms and Conditions drafted for my new business and was very pleased with the results. Hamish was able to work with me to integrate all of my terms into what is a rather complicated legal document. He explained all the jargon and made sure that I was covered in any ‘worst case scenario’. I definitely recommend them and would happily do business with them again.

Stefanus Valen

We had a great experience working with Jack and Christa over our case. Roberts Crosbie Mortensen’s team are definitely experts in their field and the approach were professional, concise and right on target. Needless to say, we are happy clients and would recommend you to start communicating with them for your legal needs.
