Matt Querzoli (March 2022)

I was pleasantly surprised by the "bedside" manner of Melissa Bush in our initial contact. I contacted Shire Legal because I was looking for new representation in an estate matter. Having never traversed this arena before, I wasn't confident in my own instincts, but Melissa assured me in a warm and professional way that my experience wasn't normal and I quickly changed legal representation and never looked back.

Our experience with Shire Legal was one of professionalism and warmth. They were accommodating to our situation which included disability, accessibility and geographical hurdles. We felt informed and impowered in our positions and will continue using their services into the future.

Sam, Macquarie Park (December 2018)

I would like to thank Shire Legal (especially Melissa Lammers and Shae Kelly) for the professional and thorough manner in which they handled the sale of my commercial property. As a first time seller of a commercial property, I had no idea of the process involved. Shae was amazing! From start to finish she was there guiding me through the process, answering my questions and advising me on what I should do. Shire Legal looked after my best interests at all times and I would definitely recommend them.

Maria, Tumbi Umbi (December 2018)

Shae was always responsive, personal, and diligent in every interaction. We cannot speak more highly of her work ethic.

(November 2018)

We recently used Shire Legal to assist us with the purchase of a small business. This was the first time we have purchased a business, and the team at Shire Legal were very professional and supportive during the process. We felt very confident that Melissa and the team were putting our best interests first during negotiations, and they were very patient with the many questions we had along the way. We are very happy that we used Shire Legal to represent us for our purchase.

(November 2018)

Would recommend Shire Legal to others without hesitation. The level of service, attentiveness and professionalism Melissa, Shae and the team demonstrated during both the purchasing and sale of our properties was beyond expectation. To know that all matters were being taken care of so well provided great peace of mind during what can often be a stressful time. Thank you, Shire Legal.

Peta, Yowie Bay (November 2018)

Shire Legal was a great support when dealing with my legal issue, the advice provided was clear and concise.

(November 2018)

Shae understood my sadness in letting my fathers house go. Whereas a vendor is normally excited and happy I had other feelings going on which Shae showed empathy for. It gave a lot of comfort and went beyond a transactional duty. She also attended to land tax issues early to ensure a smooth settlement.

(October 2018)

Shire Legal acted for us in the purchase of a property and we are very pleased with the highly professional service they provided. Melissa Lammers' legal counsel was always thorough and timely. Paralegal Shae Kelly was tireless in her efforts to ensure the transaction went smoothly and our interests were protected. Her friendliness and frequent updates were greatly appreciated. We also appreciated the very reasonable fee we paid for their services. We will use Shire Legal again and have no hesitation in recommending them.

David and Jennifer, Caringbah (October 2018)

H & A Holzner (May 2018)

Being first home buyers we had little to no knowledge of the processes involved. From our first enquiry right up until settlement, Shire Legal were of the utmost attentive and informative.

We have, and will continue to recommend Shire Legal to our friends and family.

Lydia and Gary MacFarlane, Cronulla (November 2017)

I contacted Shire Legal originally considering I was purchasing a property in the Sutherland Shire and their at Miranda location was suitable.

(September 2017)

After my husband suddenly passed away I turned to Shire Legal for help. They advised me on all aspects of what I needed to know and do and how they could make a painful process much easier to bare. Vicki, Melissa and the rest of the team were patient and sensitive and were only too happy to answer any of my questions. So it's without hesitation that I recommend Shire Legal.

Shauna Miller, Grays Point (September 2017)

My wife and I were impressed with the clarity of the Wills and Attorney documents that were prepared for us. Melissa was patient and explained everything clearly. A legal service we are more than happy to recommend.

Marija S, Caringbah (July 2017)

I found it very easy to deal with the team at Shire Legal. They were professional, answered all my questions in a timely matter and made the legal process for me very easy.

Maree Cullen, Caringbah (June 2016)

I originally used Shire Legal back in 2010 when purchasing a franchise. I have since used Shire Legal for every aspect of legal and conveyancing matters in both my business and personal life. Melissa Lammers is flawless in her knowledge, attention to detail and courtesy to clients, and her staff and fellow solicitors at the firm have absolutely honoured that approach to their practice. Shire Legal has also been up-front and very reasonable with their charges, especially considering the "added value" of having professional, friendly and very accessible team. I have since used them for purchasing another business, and with conveyancing on the purchase of property. I highly recommend them to anyone who requires legal representation in their areas of practice!

(February 2016)

First time clients of Shire Legal and we are very happy. The team were professional and accommodating to our needs. At no stage did we feel pressured or obligated into asking for further paid for advice. In this instance we simply asked for assistance in preparing our Wills, no fuss. We found the process from start to finish easy and affordable. We now intend for the team at Shire Legal to manage the next legal hurdle that comes our way.

(December 2015)

I've used Shire Legal on a few occasions now & I'm extremely impressed with their professionalism. Communication is always exceptional with my questions or requests responded to in a timely manner along with extremely helpful advice. I'd certainly recommend Shire Legal and wouldn't consider using any other company with regards to any legal matters that I need attending to.

Joyce Campbell, Syvania (December 2015)

Very happy with the services provided by Shire Legal. Vicki was excellent and made the whole process of selling and buying an easy process for us.

They really made buying our first home effortless and took control of what needed to be done. Thank you to the team at Shire Legal.

Phoebe & Mark Brasher, Barden Ridge (September 2015)

Our charity organisation approached Shire Legal as a result of the great service that I received when I sold my house. Both Melissa and Vicki have been very professional dealing with the matters. Our situation involved a simultaneous transfer with a bit of complexities on settlement timings. All of the challenges were overcome with proactive engagement from Vicki and Melissa. It's been a great pleasure to work with them. I have no hesitation in recommending Shire Legal to anyone who wants a quality job done with no headaches whatsoever.

Rasika De Silva (July 2015)

I will definitely be coming back to Shire Legal in the future!"

Bree and Nathan Tarasoff, Menai (July 2015)

Always accessible professional advice delivered in a personal manner

Steve, Jannali (July 2015)

I needed legal help badly, and I found it with Shire Legal. It was over a weekend period that i needed the help so I emailed my enquiry though their website on a Sunday morning. On that Sunday afternoon I received a call from Shire Legal in relation to my enquiry. Contacting me on the same day, on a Sunday, the afternoon on which I'd enquired was the first good sign of a great client treatment. We discussed the issues on hand, which happened to be a mid range PCA charge at the higher end of the scale, with 2 prior major offences, I was in a meeting in the coming week preparing for court. I found Shire Legal to be professional, to the point, easy to communicate with, prompt, honest and most of all told it how it was, which is greatly different to other legal firms I've dealt with in the past. The service, treatment, preparations, final submissions and eventually court appearance were fantastic. I couldn't have asked for a better outcome, it gave me peace of mind and relief going into court knowing I was represented by and confident in what had been prepared. Shire Legal works quite strategically, which worked highly in my favour, and as a result I received better than what we had even hoped for. I have no issue at all in recommending Shire Legal to anyone who is in need of legal help. Here's to hoping that I won't ever end up in court again, but if I do, I'll be in touch with Shire Legal first thing.

Mark, Bangor (July 2015)

We have used Shire Legal for the purchase of three investment properties. As newbies, it has been a big learning curve for us. Vicki (we normally deal with) has always been attentive, patient and helpful in making sure we understand what's happening and getting us through settlement on time and with as little disruption as possible to us. Will definitely be back :)

Mel & Joe, Gymea (July 2015)

Excellent service. Kept us in the loop throughout the process.

Andrew and Kim, Bangor (July 2015)

I found from my initial phone call with Melissa to my emails from Jacinta and final settlement information from Vicki that everyone was professional, friendly and helpful with the necessary paperwork required for selling my house of 24 years. They all made a very stressful time for me a much easier experience as I knew all that everything was being handled expertly. Thanks.

Tracy Gooley, Gymea (July 2015)

We used Shire Legal for conveyancing for the purchase of our first home. As it was our first purchase, the process was foreign to us. Vicki was extremely helpful throughout the process and had a very friendly nature. The communication was excellent making the transition to home ownership smooth. We would definitely recommend Shire Legal.

Keiran & Emma, Sutherland (July 2015)

We'd like to offer our sincere thanks for the outstanding way in which you acted on behalf of our son at Sutherland Court. From the beginning we were impressed with the options that you offered him in response to the penalties he was facing for such a serious offence and we were gratified that he followed your advice in attending the Serious Traffic Offenders Program as soon as he could do so and that he commenced visits to the recommended Psychologist in Miranda. Seeking appropriate medical help has made an enormous difference to his outlook on life. Your professionalism stood out in Court and, importantly, our son has taken your advice very seriously.

I'm very pleased with the outcome. Thank you for doing such a good job, I really appreciate it.

Edward (July 2015)

R Crawford, Barden Ridge (July 2015)

Vicki, the service Ken and I have received from you has been unbelievable. You are always so quick to respond, and to communicate things to us. You are so very knowledgeable, and so professional in your approach, and have provided us with so much guidance along the way. We have always found this to be the case when we have been looked after by Shire Legal in the past, and you have been nothing short of exceptional this time around. You have made what is traditionally a stressful time, really really easy. Of all the professionals we have had to deal with during this purchase and sale process, I can honestly say you have been the stand-out. You are the only one we have been able to completely put our trust in, knowing that you are looking after everything as it should be, without us having to give it a second thought. We will absolutely not hesitate to recommend your services to our friends and family. Thanks again for everything you have done for us.

Katrina & Adam (September 2014)

Thank you to Vicki and Melissa at Shire Legal for once again handling my legal matter in such an efficient and friendly manner. I have used Shire Legal several times in relation to different legal matters and highly recommend their services.

Shire Legal did all the legal work in relation to the sale of my home. From beginning to end all was handled in a very professional manner and all went ahead smoothly. I would recommend Shire Legal to friends and family.

Renata Lenzo, Kareela (September 2014)

The Shire Legal team were always on the pulse, and able to respond to questions immediately. Always taking the time to answer questions, even out of hours. Exceptional customer service, and highly recommended.

Tinnelle & Luke, Miranda (September 2014)

Best legal service I have engaged with. We had difficulty with our paperwork due to the way the loan had been arranged by our broker causing delays to our settlement. The service, support and advice provided by Vicki was fantastic. I was always kept informed of the status of our settlement. Her service, support and ability to simply what was being undertaken made a frustrating process very calm and understandable.

I would like to express my thanks to both Melissa and Vicki at Shire Legal for the professional approach displayed throughout the purchase of my property. From the comprehensive review of the contract to negotiating with the vendor's solicitor on my behalf, my many enquiries were never a problem and responses were always prompt, easy to understand, and most importantly, Vicki was always able to put my mind at ease. I would not hesitate to recommend Shire Legal to my family and friends.

Julie C, Sylvania (September 2014)

We used Shire Legal both for the purchase of a salon in Sylvania that became our first Platinum Medispa, and for an employment contract for one of our senior executives. The key points of difference that set them apart from other solicitors I have used are 1. Speed of service, 2. Breadth of technical expertise and 3. Clear, concise, easy to comprehend communication. I couldn't be happier with the results, and would strongly recommend Melissa and her team to guide you through the purchase of any business, and preparation of staff employment contracts.

Charlie Wilkinson, Platinum Natural Therapies Pty Ltd

(September 2014)

I recently bought a franchise business and was seeking a solicitor for this purpose. After contacting three different solicitors, I chose Shire Legal as they quoted me the most reasonable fees for the services I required. They were very helpful and friendly. I received all the advice I needed in a very timely basis with no hassles. They were also very helpful with ongoing queries afterwards. Thank you Shire Legal! I would recommend their services.

I would highly recommend Shire Legal! Tony and Melissa were both very professional and very easy to talk to. Tony is a credit to the firm. I can't thank him enough and was extremely happy with my result.

David, Nowra (September 2014)

Shire Legal provided us with outstanding service which was professional and with their personal touch made buying our first home so easy and not as daunting as it could have been.

I can't thank them enough and would recommend them highly to family and friends.

Michelle and Peter, Sylvania (September 2014)

Shire Legal exceeded in every aspect during the process of selling our house privately and buying a new house.

A massive difference and better experience than our previous solicitor. Can't recommend you enough! Thank you!

We have worked with Shire Legal on a number of occasions including purchasing our first property, drafting our wills, selling our existing property and buying our new home. Melissa and Vicki are superb to work with. They take all the hassle out of buying a property and they went above and beyond to get our settlement to take place in quite difficult circumstances. I would highly recommend Shire Legal to anyone looking at buying or selling property.

We were incredibly impressed with Melissa, and will definitely be utilising her services whenever required in the future. We highly recommend Shire Legal to everyone.
