Client testimonials

"As a Body Corporate Manager Company we work closely from time to time with Solicitors on wide and varied matters, so finding a company with efficient and knowledgeable staff is vital to our business. To that end we have used the services of Small Myers Hughes on many occasions, in particular with matters associated with property and body corporate legislation. We have always found their advice to be very sound and comprehensive, carried out in an efficient and timely manner and most importantly at reasonable rates. The staff that we have dealt with over the years always extend a courteous manner and tend to go beyond the brief, offering additional support if required. Based upon this experience that we have enjoyed we will continue to utilise the services of Small Myers Hughes into the future. We unreservedly recommend their services. "

Michael Groves - Director, AM Strata

"We have been associated with Small Myer Hughes for a number of years now and their service, advice and professionalism are outstanding. Jarad and his team have enabled us to focus on the day to day operations of bodies corporate and we know that we can rely on SMH to assist with the more diverse and complicated issues that confront us on a regular basis. Some of these issues have ranged from the collection of outstanding levies to that of advice regarding the establishment of Principal bodies corporate and large staged developments. With legislation constantly changing it is difficult to keep up and you need a firm which you can rely upon. If you are looking for energetic professional people, reliable communication and precise solid advice you can’t go past Small Myer Hughes."

Michael Young - Business Manager, AM Strata

"As a client of Small Myers Hughes I can highly recommend any form of legal representation by this law firm. Competence and attention to detail is unsurpassed in every aspect of the word."

William Anthony

"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
