MCG Legal    Testimonials

Read real experiences from some of our clients

I am writing to say THANK YOU!  I received a phone call from Tamie yesterday informing me of the settlement, and collected the key from the seller’s agent. It’s exciting moving into a new house!  The purchase could not have gone through so smoothly without the professional work by your team. Although not knowing much about the details, I can imagine there must be a large amount of “invisible” work behind each document and each step that I can see.  What impressed me is not only your professionalism, high efficiency, quick response to enquiries, and effective communication with other parties, but also the way you deal with your client which makes me feel it’s a conversation between acquaintances. Legal matters are explained in plain words but still remaining accurate so that I can understand without any difficulty. All correspondence, phone calls, and face-to-face talks are in an easy atmosphere.  I sincerely appreciate your work. I will share my fantastic experience with my friends, and recommend your team to them.
Regards.

Hey Matt, I just wanted to say thank you so much for the legal advice you gave me today. You have no idea how much you helped me and especially how you helped steer me in the right direction with how I should proceed. I have been burned by lawyers in the past and you gave me some free time, some real advice. I really really, really sincerely appreciate it.

Go straight to MCG Legal and see Matt and his team and save yourself time, money and reduce the stress that goes hand in hand with legal issues. I was going no where fast after 6 months with one of the big family law companies on the coast. Too big means too many clients = delays and more delays not to mention the $$$. I was recommended to Matt Gill and so glad I was. Matt and his really personal team handled my divorce emcompassing a family business, Self Managed Super Fund and domestic voilence issue and got me over the line in an affordable way so a win/win. 24hr service if required gave me piece of mind rather than an after hours answering service too. Do yourself a favour and talk to Matt and his team without delay.

Thank you so much for all your assistance regarding my settlement and I want you to know that it was an absolute pleasure to deal with you! These matters are always unpleasant and extremely stressful but it made it so much easier to have a competent and professional person to assist me with the legal side of my final settlement and a ticket to freedom!
This is something I’ve been wanting for a long, long time – so thank you Matt!

I would like to take the opportunity to express my thanks and gratitude for your help during my divorce. When I was recommended to you by a colleague I was scared and confused and in a very bad place emotionally. From my first conversation with you, my fears began to subside, I felt like I finally had someone on my side who would be able to help me through one of the most difficult times of my life. Your pragmatic, professional and supportive guidance made it easy for me to understand my options and what I needed to do to achieve the best possible outcome for my children and I. You took care of the difficult legal issues for me, issues that I just wasn’t capable of dealing with, you took a huge load off my shoulders and gave me the breathing space I needed to focus on the emotional wellbeing and recovery of my children and myself. I have recommended several friends to you since that time and will continue to recommend friends to you, I know that you will look after them as well as you looked after me. I would also like to thank your friendly and professional staff, nothing was ever too much trouble, Mel or Kim were always able to answer my questions quickly and professionally if you were not available.
Thank you again for all your help.

Hi Matt, Thanks again for your time yesterday.It is unfortunate these things do happen but it was certainly beneficial to speak with someone who has also experienced a similar situation and could give sound advice! Thank you again for everything. Although this situation is probably all to familiar for a business like yours, the outcome of our conversation enhanced clarity, stability and meaning for me personally and for this I am grateful! I appreciate your time and should things progress, you will certainly be my only choice in assisting with the matter!

Hi Matt,Danielle and I are writing this email to express our heartfelt thanks for the service your firm has provided during the sale and purchase of our properties.We have been extremely satisfied with the very high level of professionalism and service provided, by you and your team.We would especially like to thank Noelene Templeton and a very special thanks to Yvette O’Shea, the ability of these ladies to make us feel as though we are their only clients was comforting under this stressful occasion. I wish to mention that our bank made some considerable mistakes of which Yvette went above and beyond her duties and solved for us, even to the extent that she came in from her holidays on her birthday to attend too and solve these issues, we were sincerely grateful and very impressed.
The abilities of your staff that impressed us were:

  • Impeccable communication skills – reply to emails were almost instant, follow up phone calls, knowledge and the language and tone used was comforting and professional, always smiling and we felt as if nothing was an issue (even though I’m sure we were annoying at times)
  • Always available to answer or assist with any questions, even when we dropped in with little notice.
  • Took control of any situation and assisted even though we didn’t expect it was part of their duty
  • Your staff definitely show their experience in this field and we will highly recommend them to everyone we can.

We are so happy we engaged your firm for these services and thoroughly enjoyed meeting you all.We would most gladly be testimonials for you firm.
Our very sincere thanks,

Thank you so much for the efficient, professional and friendly service provided by your office in a recent less than straightforward purchase of our new home in Southport. Every contact with every person was faultless – refreshing these days I’m afraid to say. Happy to recommend you at any time and you will be our port of call for any legal matters going forward, many thanks.

I can’t thank you enough for all your help and support (Especially to Nick) this past 18 months. It was quite a long and upsetting process but I am grateful to you now that you took all the stress out and restored my life. Your faith, knowledge and determination were something that solves my worries.
