    Client testimonials

    “It was clear from initial conference with Neil Montaldo that he was able to absorb the volumes of information involved in my case and ascertain a clear steer, direction and initial reading to provide me with the fully qualified comfort I needed.  I was impressed and further comforted by the passion with which he adopted the case as if it were his own and it was with this that I felt completely reassured me that there would be no aspect overlooked or omitted from the case that would prove valuable to the result we sought.  Neil was honest and frank when focusing our energies on the areas that would return the most benefit and gave immediate, invaluable and clear direction to members of my legal party that resulted in key strengths to our case when in court. During our two day final hearing trial Neil provided precise preparatory advice and reassurance to me before appearing in front of the judge. Neil is tenacious and impressive when cross examining a witness and was able to extract clear beneficial facts and rebuke other evidence in a manner that was clear, unequivocally and compelling to the judge which ultimately led to success on both matters in our proceedings.” – Jason Carr

    “I would like to extend my sincere thank you for your representation on my behalf in the family court during my divorce hearing. It has been an extremely upsetting and distressing period in my life but with your expertise in securing a favourable outcome I now feel better. I have always enjoyed watching a professional at work whatever their job and you were no exception. When I left the solicitor’s office after meeting you for the first time, I knew he had secured me the best around – a fact that was further reinforced to me during the hearing.” – A client
