TESTIMONIALS

Take a look at what our clients say

Dr Jacqueline Kerr

"Michael is the consummate professional and he has the ability of getting straight to the issue, no matter how complex. He achieves timely results and has an in depth knowledge of the law which extends well beyond family law. Michael is compassionate and always has time to talk through an issue even when he is overseas or away on holidays he will respond to his clients. I can not recommend him highly enough to anyone who needs a man of probity who knows his law and puts his client first."

Annette Kontoleon

"I was facing the prospect of losing everything I had worked so hard for which was awful, I was at breaking point. Mitchell not only was a very good lawyer negotiating my financial security, he was also helpful, compassionate and caring. I felt like a human being and not just a number."

Peter, Civil Designer

"The service I received from SMH was great. Michael and Jessica were very professional and were always quick to get back to me and let me know what was happening with my matter."

Melissa Paul - Director, Strata Sphere

"I have worked with Jared 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. Jared’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."

Robert, Property Developer

"Col has been my go to lawyer for more than 20 years. He and his team have looked after many property developments for me over the years and they always do a great job helping me get through each development. I like that I can call any member of the team and get the legal advice I need at the time. I guess you could say that our relationship is more like a partnership than client and solicitor. "

Jan - Chairperson (San Delles)

"The advice and assistance that our Body Corporate has received from SMH Lawyers has been invaluable. Our Body Corporate has engaged them to assist us with formulating our onsite building managers schedule of duties, updates to our By-laws and they ensured the Body Corporates best interests were of utmost importance with three Deed of Assignments finalised over the past 10 years. I highly recommend SMH Lawyers and in particular Jarad Maher and Ben Ashworth. "

Michael Groves - Director, AM Strata

"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. "
