Testimonials

  • Attitude Goes a Long Way

    Female Business Owner, 44

    Thanks Josh, I have enjoyed working with you and really appreciate your efforts. I know it’s what you get paid for, but a good attitude and enthusiasm come subconsciously through emails and the phone – thanks again.

  • Service and Knowledge

    I just want to thank you, and specifically Kristy, for your work in helping us out at such short notice. We were both thrilled with Kristy's service and knowledge of what she was doing.

  • Making a Difference

    Just a quick email to let you know that we really appreciate everything that you have done for us this year. By helping with mums affairs and with our personal stuff as well, you have made things a little easier. Keep up the great work it really does make a difference.

  • Coping in the Face of Insurmountable Problems

    "... Everyone was supportive, courteous, helpful and explained each step of the process as clearly and concisely as possible. I don't know that you realise how important you are when clients don't know what to do or where to turn. You are not just supportive in the financial sense helping achieve a desired goal, but psychologically and emotionally you certainly were a huge part of my being able to cope with a seemingly insurmountable problem and devastating part of my life. I would recommend your services to anyone in need of such and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for everything you have done for me."

  • Five Years of Full Service

    It is a full service firm and I certainly needed many services over the last 5 years, so it was great to be able to deal with the organisation where they could refer to past matters, which tended to be all related. Everything was just great. From the moment I went through the front door and was treated with a friendly receptionist to the end of the matter. I referred my father to McLaughlins and will call McLaughlins for future issues.

  • Diligence and Attention to Detail

    “Dear Oliver, Thank you very much for your amazing and personalised care to complete our purchase and effect settlement. I must show our appreciation for your diligence and attention to detail and above all courteous manner in which you have represented your company. I thoroughly recommend your company to anyone looking for any legal and conveyancing services.”

  • I Feel Lucky and Privileged

    Dear Nicole, this note is to thank you for your outstanding work over the last 12 months. You enabled me to get through probably the worst period of my life, and you did it professionally, empathetically and with an absolute minimum of fuss. I feel so lucky and privileged to have had you on my ride. I wish you every success in the future on both a professionally and personal level, and am sure you will excel in any endeavour you put your hand to. With all my gratitude and best wishes.

  • Full Service Made My Life Simpler

    I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and all the staff at McLaughlins who have helped me out over various issues over the last few years. The fact that McLaughlins is a full service law firm, has made life a lot simpler. You may or may not know, that I have referred my father to McLaughlins for his conveyancing as he was also impressed with the way things have been handled by McLaughlins

  • Sincerity We’ll Return For

    The firm will always have our highest recommendation and should the need arise we would be very happy to use you again. Thank you again for all your help and sincere approach to our problems.

  • Help Worth Talking About

    Ian, once again thank you very much for looking after our problems. Our company has been very impressed with you and will gladly tell others to use you.

  • A Good and Caring Shepherd

    Thank you for the lovely and precious time you have spent with us. I always hope and believed on this biblical passage “a good and caring shepherd are there with a listening ear when we are hurt…they are humble hearts and a love for others”. With all the best for McLaughlins Lawyers.

  • Strength to Focus Again

    "Thank you for all you have done for me. Representing me, guiding me and speaking to me positively and giving me strength and focus to work again.”

  • Understanding What Matters to Me

    “Sophie treated me like a person, not just one of her clients. She understood the importance of my matter to me.”
