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. "
