WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY

I have used GLG Legal for several years and multiple properties through sales and development. My main solicitors were Christopher Saines who was professional, supportive, trustworthy, truthful and the hardest working solicitor I have met. When I was in great need he was always prepared to go past ordinary hours. I have nothing but praise for my experiences with him. I was also happy with Mylee On, also willing to assist with timing and the client's needs, she clarified and did not waste time. She simplified rather than expounding legalese as some can. I was exceptionally grateful for the help I received and would (and have) recommended them to friends and associates. Their fees were very fair and I felt great value. There is a broad range of staff so I have used names for my most valued solicitors.

Mylee was amazing to us the entire house buying/settlement process. We highly recommend her for ease of mind. It's our first time buying a house and it was all so nerve racking but with the help of Mylee, she made sure all things stayed afloat and everything fell into place as planned. Thank you Mylee! You're an absolute star!

Mylee at GLG came highly recommended and our experience was exactly that 5 star! The process of selling our property with Mylee was smooth from start to finish. Thank you for handling our transaction. We would definitely use GLG again.

I've worked with two of the team at GLG Legal, and both were excellent.Prue Lowder handled the conveyancing of a recent property purchase. Her advise and knowledge was invaluable in ensuring a smooth and painless transaction. Getting her advice before signing the contract was the best descision I made and I highly reccomend anyone do that.Cathy Vo is also a wonderful solicitor to deal with, handling my wife and i's wills, enduring power of attorney's etc with great care and consideration. Getting her advice on some of the more complicated family situations has really put our mind at ease, knowing that things will be sorted out the way we want.I have no hesitation in reccomending both of these professionals.
