“For all our legal matters from drafting of commercial documents to general legal advice nothing was ever too hard and they are prompt in their responses. Well done team!”

Christopher Richardson

Excellent service, excellent staff.

“Lots of free time and solid advice BEFORE professional charges applied. Saved me thousands by NOT HAVING to use them … not to mention Tony’s sage advice in helping me to get the defendants to surrender and pay up out of court. Couldn’t be happier.”

The Dolphin

I would highly recommend Tony to anyone who needs a help resolving a complicated dispute.

“Tony assisted us with a complicated dispute arising from the termination of an agreement with a referral source. Tony provided clear and strategic advice and was able to negotiate an outcome without the need for Court proceedings. Tony was easy to deal with and was focused on the commercial objectives for our business.”
