Client testimonials

"I have worked with Jarad Maher on various matters over the past few years. I have found SMH to be extremely efficient in all the dealings we have had with them. Jarad's experience in BSA and building defects issues is excellent and we have found the issues resolved in a timely manner. I have no hesitation in recommending this firm to any prospective clients."

Sarah, Body Corporate Manager

"We found the service at SMH sensational and we're unbelievably happy with the work that was done for us. Col is a legend and even though this matter didn't proceed, we will be coming back to use SMH when we find another building."

Mark, Management Rights Industry

"Many thanks Julie, for your support over the last few months. You helped us through the highs and lows of the management rights' sale process with sound advice, professionalism and great communication."


"Brilliant! I'm very happy and in fact have already referred another client to Michael. Michael is very good and I feel his real difference compared to others is that he has a very firm grip on the psychology and emotions behind a separation. I will continue to recommend Michael to anyone I know who is thinking about divorcing"

Damien, Resort Owner
