“Barbara was very helpful, friendly and professional. I needed documents signed and witnessed by a solicitor quite urgently and she ensured we achieved this, however without cutting any corners.

Barbara needed to look into the documents (which were interstate and had different legislation) and then got me back into her office soon after to sign them. On top of being very professional and helpful, she didn’t charge me for her time or services.

I would highly recommend Barbara! Also, the reception staff were always extremely friendly and helpful. Great firm!”
